If you suffer from allergies, we feel for you. It can be miserable sneezing when you aren’t even sick. You shouldn’t have to feel like you have a cold when you are perfectly healthy. Yet there are certain times of the year when your eyes are tearing up and your nose is runny and the sneezes just won’t stop. Thank you allergies! There are plenty of things you can do to help your allergies remain as tame as possible. Did you know that even your windows can help? Here are just a few things to consider about windows and how they affect your allergies.
Stationary Windows are Best for Allergy-Sufferers
We understand that you aren’t going to want to have every window in your Simi Valley, CA home be a stationary window that doesn’t open, but when it comes to windows, stationary is best for keeping allergens out. If you are going through a window replacement project, you might consider putting in a few extra stationary windows in strategic locations to keep the allergens at bay. Perhaps there are certain windows you don’t open anyway because of allergens. Make them stationary, save money, and avoid allergens at the same time.
Newer Windows Keep Allergens Out
When you have gaps and cracks in your old window frames, you know there’s air getting out and air coming in. Allergens are small and enormously irritating. They can ride the air like nobody’s business. If you really want to keep your home as allergen-free as possible, you may want to consider window replacement. When you can feel the air going in and out, the allergens are coming in with them. But they probably aren’t going back out! You’ll feel much better when you have window replacements that can help you keep the allergens at bay.
Smooth Vinyl Windows Don’t Hide Allergens
Wood windows may have some rough spots on them from time to time. It’s the nature of the material. If you have wood windows, you may have gotten a splinter here and there repainting them over the years. Any place where the wood isn’t completely smooth is a great location for allergens to hide. The material can house plenty! But when you work on a window replacement project and install vinyl windows, there’s nowhere for allergens to hide. The smooth, welded material is easy to clean and wipe down, and much easier to keep sanitary so you will sneeze less often in your home.
