Spring is hitting us earlier than normal here in North Carolina. Temperatures getting up to the 70’s in early March has been a relief for the mountains. But as we all know, Spring brings allergy season – and with these warm temperatures, the trees may begin to pollinate earlier than normal. Weather reporters have predicted that the southeast region of the United States will be hit the hardest with pollen due to our mild winter temperatures and low precipitation. Other areas in the northern region won’t have it as rough since they had larger amounts of snow and rainfall to keep pollen levels down. It is important that you as a homeowner take precaution to make sure your home has clean air this Spring.
