April showers bring May flowers, and with those flowers, comes allergies! Approximately 60 million people suffer from seasonal allergies and the number is still increasing every year. Below are some simple tips to keep your home allergen-free.
Start by getting a zip-on cover for your mattress and pillow. Every week just wash the covers to keep your mattress and pillowcases fresh and dust mite free!
If at all possible, replace your wall to wall carpeting routinely. Dust, pollen, and pet dander are the most common allergens and walking across carpet re-releases all of that into the air.
Having an entry mat outside of your door and right when you walk in is a fantastic way to limit the number of allergens coming in your home. Taking off your shoes at your entryway is also an effective method.
If your vacuum cleaner doesn’t have a HEPA filter, switch to one that does. They’re specially made to trap small particles including most allergens.
Blinds or shades don’t hold as many allergens as fabric drapes, but if you insist on curtains, look for machine-washable options. You can vacuum excess allergens using your brush attachment on your vacuum, and drapes should be washed once a week.
Don’t forget to clean or replace the filters in your heating and cooling system. Just follow the manufacturers’ instructions on timing and frequency.
With these simple tips, breathe easy knowing your house is allergen-free!
