Follow A Regular Home Cleaning Routine
For allergy relief most people use antihistamines and nasal spray. Keeping your home clean and free of allergens, pollen and dust mites is just as important to combat seasonal allergies and hay fever. Home cleaning for allergy relief is an effective strategy.
One very effective way to minimize allergens in the home is to vacuum regularly and often. The use of attachments for getting to high places is a good start, and work your way down. Curtains, drapes and upholstery should be vacuumed, paying extra attention to entryways and around window edges. We recommend regular home cleaning for allergy relief.
Frequently changing vacuum bags and filters, and using accessories that are designed to capture allergens is important. Some vacuum bags are made of synthetic material to capture allergens, dust and pet hair. Filters are also specially designed to trap dust mites, animal dander, molds and pollen.
Change Often, And Wash Bedding With Hot Water
Sheets, Blankets and Comforters attract dust mites and should be washed once a week in hot water to try to avoid allergens. Protective covers for mattresses and pillows can also stop dust mites from embedding themselves.
Keep Moisture Out Of The Air
Too much moisture in the air can lead to mold. Use a dehumidifier to control the spread of dust mites and mold, especially in humid climates or in summer months anywhere.
Not Too Many Indoor Plants
We’ve always been led to believe that having plants indoors is healthy. To a certain extent that may be true, but some indoor plants release spores and allergens into the air. If you want to have plants indoors, research plants that are less likely to increase pollen and mold exposure.
