Once the groundhog predicts an early spring, there are two types of people: the ones whose moods heighten because the days are getting longer and then the ones who are dreading it because it means allergy season is upon us. Allergies can be draining. Whether it’s pollen, dust, or dander, allergies are easily triggered and sometimes hard to avoid during spring. To enjoy your spring and the sunny days ahead, it’s important to get prep for allergy season with three simple steps to avoid these uncomfortable symptoms.

Step 1: Be Proactive

You don’t have to wait to beat allergy season. In fact, you can be proactive and get ahead to mitigate your symptoms.


  • Cleaning your home to get rid of dust, dander, and pollen is imperative to prevent allergies. Pollen can seep indoors, dust can cover furniture and light fixtures, and circulate in the air. And if you have pets, their hair is found everywhere. All of these can trigger allergies. Before the season comes when these allergen levels are higher, deep clean your home.
  • You can also be proactive internally by taking antihistamines to treat symptoms when they occur and options like Zyrtec and Claritin are available over-the-counter. Usually, people wait to take these when they start to feel the onset of allergies, but it might be useful to start taking medicine two weeks in advance.
  • There are other medicines available if you’re not keen on taking oral medicine. For example, there are Corticosteroid nasal sprays, which will help with nasal symptoms, and Cromolyn sodium nasal sprays, which block the release of immune system agents that cause symptoms.

Step 2: Know Outdoor Air Quality

The outdoor air quality is the domino that leads to triggers indoors, so it’s important to stay on top of the pollen counts outside. Pollen is at its peak during the months of March to May, especially tree and grass pollen. Websites like AAAAI can help you research pollen counts in your area.


Typically, morning time is the highest for pollen count, so avoid outdoor activity during that time period. Adjust your habits accordingly based on pollen counts so your indoor air quality and your life quality can be better during allergy season.

Step 3: Invest in Clean Indoor Air

Though the above solutions help mitigate the severity of allergy symptoms, they aren’t foolproof. Allergy symptoms can still occur, which is why it’s important to invest in a solution that will proactively clean surfaces and air in your home to both prevent and treat allergies. Enter: Puraclenz Core, an upgrade from your basic HEPA air purifier.


HEPA filters are often used to remove pathogens from the air, improving indoor air quality. In an air purifier, this works by forcing air through a fine mesh, which traps allergens, such as pollen, dust, and dander in the air. But Puraclenz Core takes it even further with a 5-stage process that features PCO purification.

The PCO technology uses light-powered energy and ions to purify exposed surfaces as well. It proactively cleans your home in a way normal HEPA purifiers can’t, and can even destroy mold spores and viruses. By combining HEPA with PCO, Core has a faster process to purification. This means less exposure to pathogens than you would get during peak allergy season.


The five-stage allergen removal starts with

  • A pre-filter to trap large particles, such as pet hair and dander
  • Then, the HEPA filtration works to trap pollen, mold, and dust mites from the air
  • Core follows this up with a carbon filter to further remove VOCs and odors including those pesky pet odors.
  • A UVC Lamp kills the mycotoxins and pathogens in the filter to ensure they are removed from your environment.
  • Lastly, Core’s PCO purification ensures pollutants are removed for full, proactive cleaning.


If you suffer from allergies, you should invest in a HEPA air purifier for your bedroom and home. The Puraclenz Core is an ideal option because the added PCO technology can reach where HEPA cannot. It can be a solution to your allergies before symptoms even occur.


Bottom Line

To fully enjoy your spring, you need to prepare for allergy season before your symptoms get the best of you. There are day-to-day measures you can take to mitigate the amount of dust and pollen in your home, such as spring cleaning and closing the windows on high pollen days. You can also prepare your body by taking medicine in advance. Ultimately, however, allergy season is combated when your home is proactively cleaned and constantly removing allergens in the air to create a safe, welcoming environment. HEPA air purifiers, specifically Core, are the best solution to do this.
