Although a very beautiful time of year, spring time means allergies for a large amount of the population. Just like outdoor allergies can cause illness, and fatigue, so can indoor allergies. Dust mites, pet dander, mold, and debris can all cause you to feel those allergy and asthma symptoms. With allergens being carried throughout the air vents, furniture, flooring, and clothing, it can feel mind boggling on how to conquer this issue. Below we’ve listed out a few ways we’ve found helpful to rid your home of spring time allergens to ensure you and your family are comfortable this spring time.
Dust the Right Way
Getting rid of the dust in your home may seem like a simple and easy task, but it can make all the difference in your home. By removing the dust particles, you will notice a asthma and allergy symptoms lessen as this is the most common trigger for allergies. With a damp cloth, wipe down all counter tops to avoid the dust scattering.
Vacuuming post dust is another great way to make sure you’ve rid the home of dust. Vacuuming rooms that collect more dust such as rooms with carpet or heavy curtaining will help control allergens as well. Using a vacuum with a HEPA filter will help trap the smaller particles instead of releasing them into the air. It is recommended to vacuum your home at least twice a week to ensure dust isn’t collecting.
Wash Your Bedding
Washing your bedding and pillow cases and anything else in terms of bedding in very hot water will eliminate dust mites. It is also recommended to but all bedding in allergy proof covers to ensure optimal allergy free slumbers.
Install an Air Purifier
Installing an air purifier will make an enormous amount of difference within the quality of your home and the allergies you suffer. By installing an APCO Air Purifier, the system will clean your home of contaminants that could be sparking your allergies.
