How to Allergy-Proof Your Home
It’s about that time – spring allergy time! If you’ve started to notice the sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, then it’s about time you notice that there’s something you can do to help!
Your home contains allergens that make you feel like spring is against you. But, as a homeowner, it’s important that you learn the ways you can help clean and de-allergen your home. Check out our tips below:
Dust settles, and dust carries a lot of those allergens that annoy you! If you can, try and upgrade with a vacuum that includes a HEPA filter. These trap particles as tiny as.3 microns, which means they’ll get rid of most of the allergens in your home.
Don’t forget to replace the filters in your heating and cooling system. Check out our previous article that dives into it!
As mentioned before, dust is a true allergy culprit! Instead of just brushing dust away with a towel or a duster, try and use a damp microfiber cloth. These will trap the dust instead of moving them around.
Wash Bed Sheets
Be sure to wash your pillow cases and sheets every 3 weeks.
Indoor air is twice as polluted as outdoor air with all the dust, mold, and chemicals that stay in an enclosed space over time. If you can, think about investing in an air purifier. Make sure it uses a HEPA filter (like mentioned for the vacuum).
Allergies can be a real downer! But if you work hard at maintaining your home during the spring and summer months, you’ll feel the benefits!
