6 Tips for Keeping Pollen out of Your Central Florida Home

Brushing Dog - Keeping Pollen out

You know that old saying, “April showers bring May flowers?” Here in central Florida, April’s already full of flowers! And with a lot of  flowers comes pollen—and everywhere. Whether your sinuses are stopping up or you just want to keep your home clean, here are several tips for keeping pollen out of the house:

  1. Keep your doors and windows shut. If air is coming in and it’s out of your control, odds are it’s carrying a lot of pollen with it. Talk to HVAC professionals about ventilation with air filtration so you can get fresh air without the allergens.
  2. If you’ve been outside in the pollen, leave your shoes in the entryway and go for a hot shower when you come home. Put all your outdoor clothes straight in the hamper or the washer.
  3. If you’ve got indoor/outdoor pets, make sure to give them a good grooming outside before they come in.
  4. Clean and vacuum regularly. When you dust, use a damp or static duster so you’re not just throwing the dust up into the air. And remember to dust those hard-to-reach locations, like the blades of ceiling fans.
  5. If you’ve got a bagless vacuum, empty it outside, not indoors. And purchase vacuums with HEPA filters to further protect your indoor air.
  6. Replace air filters in the HVAC system regularly. With all the extra pollen, they might clog up quicker, meaning reduced airflow through the air conditioner.

AC Service Testimonials

review us on
I had an excellent service call with Daniel today. He quickly diagnosed the problem with my ac and explained the issues, all my options, and prices. He explained everything to me such that I understood what was going on, and felt totally comfortable with the decision I made. The office staff was excellent, as well. I plan to replace my ac before year's end and will definitely purchase from Scott's. Thank you! It's so great to do business with competent, courteous, and efficient individuals.
The professionalism of the parties I spoke with and/or met spoke words. Things were explained in terms I could understand throughout the process. Even though the instillation took 2 days due to some issues, the team did their best to have my AC replaced and running by the end of day 2 and kept us comfortable in the mean time. I highly recommend this company for any AC needs…
Scots can always be counted on to keep our AC running properly with friendly, on time, professional technicians.
I had a new unit installed back in 2022 and have been having regular maintenance twice yearly since then. All has been well. Today I was scheduled for maintenance once again and my unit was taken care of, but my technician Allen pointed out that my other unit outside (not installed or maintained by Scott's) had frayed wires on the outside condenser which would soon lead to a short on that unit. He offered to get me a quote to fix that and I agreed to receiving a quote. He was able to provide the fix right away and had that taken care of in less than an hour. I really appreciated the extra attention he paid to the overall area, and that he was willing to repair something that was not installed by his company. It was his genuine concern that took precedence. I will continue to recommend this company and will most likely have them as my provider when that second unit needs replacement.
