Minimizing Home Allergens

Written by 

Even though staying indoors can protect an allergic person from the surroundings that trigger such an allergic reaction, it doesn’t get rid of the problem completely. Tiny particles which are not visible to the naked eye like pet dander and dust mites sometimes prompt allergic reactions. These could include asthma or other problems related to respiration. Fortunately, there are several easy ways to help you stay away from exposure to allergens. To make the most of your cleaning efforts whilst minimizing allergens, consider the following simple tips:

  • Dust hard surfaces often using a special dry duster or moist cloths designed to trap dust and lock it. 
  • Vacuum your floors often. Even though cleaning can at times cause allergic reactions, vacuuming the floors, once or two times every week will help reduce the surface dust and the allergens. Ensure your vacuum has air filler with high efficiency to help capture the dust.
  • Use a licensed specialized carpet cleaning service for the deep cleaning of the carpet in order to get rid of spills, dust and stains that the regular vacuuming doesn’t eliminate.
  • Protect yourself from the allergens while doing house chores by putting on a mask. After you are done cleaning, consider staying out of your home for a couple of hours in order to avoid the allergens released in the air.
  • Reduce pet dander. In case you are allergic, don’t keep animal pets with fur or feathers, for example dogs, cats and birds, in your house. Animal dead skin and saliva also referred to as pet dander may cause allergic reactions. In case you have a pet already, try to keep it away from your bedroom.
  • Shut out pollen. Check your windows for film or pollen on the sill or frame. Prevent pollen from getting inside your house by keeping your doors and windows shut. You can use your air filter and frequently clean it, or run your air conditioner and remember to change the filter frequently.

Many people worldwide suffer from allergic reactions. In case you are one of these people, be proactive and get rid of these allergens in your house so that you can breathe much more easily. Remember, a clean home is a healthy home!
