Spring time maintenance part 2: Health

By Louise Morrin

So, if you read part one, you may have started thinking about some things to do to improve the appearance of your piece of Carlton real estate. You probably know exactly what you want to do in order to make your house stand out from the crowd. While you're out there, don't neglect your health and the difference spring makes to you.

There are aspects of health we take care of every season (or at least should). You know the ones – pick up a new toothbrush every season change, etc. But while you're out painting the fence or planting some shrubs, there are some other things you should think about.

As with your house there are seen and concealed areas that need attention. If you come in from working in the garden and your skin's a bit pink, you should think about sunscreen as the weather heats up. ​But there are less visible things you'll need to remember as well – one of the major ones is pollen. With the rains gone and the flowers and trees in bloom, you might need to make some changes to deal with the extra pollen in the air.

If hay fever and pollen are a concern for you, aside from medication, you might also want to think about where you hang your washing – is it possible to move it inside or to a place sheltered from wind that might stir up pollen? And that cool breeze through the house? If it's bringing pollen in, it may be reducing your comfort instead of improving it.
