Spring is on its way, despite everything the weatherman might be saying, and that means that flowers, trees, and grasses will start growing and blooming. For some lucky people, this is great! Isn’t it nice to see the first flowers of spring? For others, though, this is what we’ve been dreading. Pollen will be everywhere, and our allergies will become a bazillion times worse. Your car should be an escape from that, and we’ve got some great tips on how to allergy-proof your car easily and quickly so that you don’t have a sneeze emergency in the middle of traffic.

First of all, vacuum your car frequently. Take a few minutes every weekend to just go over the vents, the floormats, and the seats. Pollen and dust can really settle into soft surfaces, so try to get rid of it as quickly as you can. It makes a great difference!

Keep a bottle of allergen-reducing spray in the car. Febreze makes a great one that works well and keeps any pollen and dust that get in at bay between vacuums. It also has the added bonus of keeping your vehicle smelling nice and fresh!

Take a look at your cabin air filter. Chances are it hasn’t been changed in a while, and when it gets full of junk your allergies can start to suffer. Your owner’s manual will be able to tell you how to find it, and if you need help changing it just give us a call and we’ll take care of it for you!

Finally, there are some allergens that will sneak in through the cracks. Keep tissues handy, and remember to take your allergy meds. But if you follow our advice, you should be able to be sneeze-free all spring and summer!
