The Season for Sneezin’

Filed under Homeowners on Dec 26,2020 | Tagged in: , , , ,

For allergy sufferers, Christmas can be a time of sneezing, watery eyes and itching. That’s because having a tree in the house can bring with it pollen and mold that can trigger allergies.

Surprisingly, artificial trees can also provoke allergies, due to odors that could be emitted from the manufacturing process, or from dust that settles on the tree during storage.  Sarah Gantz, writing for the Philadelphia Inquirer, offers some suggestions for mitigating the effects of each. For a live tree, be sure to shake out the tree prior to bringing it inside.  This can get rid of loose pollen.  You can also use an air compressor to blow off debris, or spray the tree down with a hose and let it dry before bringing it inside.  An artificial tree should be stored in a bag in the off season to reduce dust. Before setting it up for the holidays, bring it outdoors for a good brushing off and airing.
