Spring is right around the corner!


Trees start pollinating in the spring anywhere from February to March and then they pollinate up until May. When you get itchy watery eyes, start sneezing and coughing, you know it's due to pollen in the air, but it can still affect you even when you're inside.


Microscopic particles blow in the wind and can stick to clothing, and travel into your home. And don't forget about your open windows on that nice spring day!


If you know you have allergies and you're outside all day, just simply change your clothes, take a shower and be sure and take your shoes off outside; this prevents you from bringing pollen into your home.


So, when the flowers finally decide to bloom, you will be prepared!
