Win The Battle Against Allergies – Clean Your Carpets

By

Everyone wants to stay healthy. We eat right, exercise and maintain proper hygiene. However, health isn’t just limited to food and personal cleanliness. If you have asthma, for example your health can be affected by airborne allergens and pollutants taking up space in the air or on surfaces of your home.

These allergens are tracked on your carpets in from outside and can cause you some discomfort. How can you avoid getting sick?

 

There are steps you can take to ensure your health won’t be compromised by these irritants.

 

For bedrooms, you’ll want to encase pillows, mattresses and blankets in dust-mite resistant covers. If your allergies are a huge issue, you may consider removing carpeting all together. Hardwood floors will be easier to maintain as dust mites and other pollutants become trapped within your carpets.

Curtains and blinds should be easy to take down and wash to avoid excessive dust build-up. During pollen season, keep your windows closed and rely solely on air conditioning to avoid having pollen enter your home. Pay close attention to your window frames and sills and be sure you’re cleaning them regularly to avoid mold and mildew build-up.

 

When choosing furniture for your home, you should choose pieces that are easy to clean, such as leather, wood, metal or plastic and avoid any upholstered furniture.

Removing random items that collect dust is another good way to keep allergens under control.

It seems like a no-brainer to avoid bringing fuzzy, dander-carrying pets into the home; but we love our animals! If you simply can’t do without your pets, you’ll need to take extra steps to ensure your health and comfort in their presence. Start by keeping your furry friends out of your bedroom. This keeps their dander contained to only certain areas of the house, and allows you to sleep soundly without the allergy-induced sniffling and sneezing.

Most importantly, you need to invest in an air filtration system. Your filtration system cleans the allergens that are lurking in the air.

Since you can’t spend your life in a bubble, follow these tips to ensure the overall cleanliness of your home.
