3 Ways To Allergy-Proof Your Home This Spring
Many people suffer from allergies every day, but why suffer when you can control the things in your home that trigger them. Here are a few things that can be done to help free your family of their allergies.
Things to Avoid
Dust, dander, and pollen are often the cause of many allergy symptoms. If you keep the pollen out and eliminate the dust and dander, you can cut down on many of the irritants. In the warmer months you can avoid allergens by having an air condition installed in your home.
By doing this you won’t have to open a window that allows the pollen to come in. And also you can eliminate the use of fans which will prevent dust from stirring around.
If you have wall to wall carpeting in your home, have the carpet removed so that you can use hardwood flooring, tiles, or linoleum which will cut down on the dust and dander.
If you reside in a home where you cannot take up the carpeting, have the carpet professionally cleaned periodically.
In rooms where you have curtains, have them replaced with blinds or shades. If you prefer curtains you can have professional cleaners come in and steam clean the curtains a few times during the year.
You can also do the same thing to upholstered furniture to help keep down on the dust and dander.
If you have mold in your home it can cause those who have allergies to suffer. However this can be avoided. The main cause of mold in the household is from too much moisture in the house. In rooms like the bathroom have a professional install an exhaust fan to help suck up the moisture while you are showering or bathing.
Also make sure you have your bathroom painted with mold resistant enamel paint. This will also keep your bathroom wall from molding while showing and bathing.
One of the most important things in keeping mold out of your home is to make sure you have any leaks fixed. The area’s should be cleaned first, and then have a plumber come and fix any leaks that you may have in your home. Leaks may also require roofing work if the leak is coming from the ceiling.
Get Rid of Pest
Insects and rodents also play a major role in triggering allergies. You can avoid this if you rid your home of pest. Hire professional exterminators to remove insects and mice.
You may also want to hire a professional carpet cleaning company so that the residue from these critters can be removed from the carpeting.
If you follow these tips you and your family should be able to live in a more comfortable environment.
