Did you know that shutters can help with seasonal allergies? With spring in full force, pollens and molds are out and about, causing us to suffer from sneezes, coughs, and a lot more discomfort. But you can fight back against seasonal allergies in the home, as shutters can actually help prevent those pesky pollens!
Block The Entrances
It’s spring, so that means the temptation to have windows open to let fresh air in is high. And while cool breezes are lovely, you are also giving allergens easy access to your home. Without a line of defense from the window into your house, allergens such as pollen and spores float on in and land just about anywhere. But with shutters, you have another barrier to trap those pollutants while still allowing fresh breezes to waft in. You can keep fresh, clean air flowing in throughout your home without sacrificing your privacy – and without sneezing your head off.
Easy To Clean
And once those pollens are settled on shutters, it is just a matter of simply wiping them away. While fabric curtains trap and hold onto irritants, shutters have smooth, wipeable surfaces that allow you to easily clean them off before they become ingrained throughout your home.
It’s not just pollens that cause allergies. Pet hair and dander can also irritate and cause flair-ups. The good news is that those things are just as easy to clean off as shutters, too.
Should You Install Shutters?
If you suffer from allergies or dread your stuffy nose in the fall (but still want to have open windows), shutters may be your best compromise. You’ll be able to still have the breezes you crave but with less offending allergens.
