As the weather warms and you can feel that spring is in the air, this also means that there is an increase in the pollen count - as the flowers continue to blossom and the breeze carries pollen from place to place - and mold in the home which may cause allergies in some. These allergies may cause irritation, itchiness, soreness or redness of the eyes, throat and nose.

To avoid the allergies from pollen and mould from flaring up, make sure you frequently wash your hands and if you have been outdoors, wash your clothes when you come home to lower the pollen count around you. Also keep an eye out on the pollen count if you do suffer from allergies and try to stay indoors with the doors and windows shut when the count is high and try to keep the air pure with an air purifier and dehumidify the air with a dehumidifers to avoid the growth of mould.

6. Use an air purifier or dehumidifier
