How to Allergy-Proof your Home during the Spring Season?
Here are a few tips to help you decrease the allergens in your home.
Dust-off your Entire House
Dust is one of the ironically big causes of allergic reactions, and its large number in your house makes it an even bigger threat. Thus, you should deal with them efficiently all over your home.
When dusting-off your home, prefer to wipe dust using a wet cloth to avoid spreading them to the air. Also, regularly wash your bedsheets, pillows and other stuff that easily accumulate dust.
In addition, regularly deal with clutters all over your home, and keep or throw things accordingly. Clutters are some other good spots for the dust to accumulate.
Keep Pollen Away
Pollen from plants outside your home is another major cause of allergic reactions. Thus, make sure to fix your landscape, and prefer hypoallergenic plants or keep them a considerable distance away.
Moreover, use HEPA or High-Efficiency Particulate Air filter on your ventilation and windows to keep pollen outside. This is one of the vital spring-tips you should know, simply because plants tend to produce more pollen during spring.
Clean your Bathroom regularly
Another cause of an allergic reaction are molds forming on your bathroom walls and floors. You can even find them on the toilet, sink or tub as well.
Clean your entire bathroom regularly, and keep it dry as much as possible. Moreover, consider installing air-tight ventilation or exhaust fan, which you can activate after showers.
Efficient Pest Control
Many types of insects and pests or their droppings could cause allergic reactions. Thus, it’s important to conduct pest control all over your home to deal with them.
Consider hiring professional pest control services to help you. Just don’t miss to inform them about your allergies, so they could use appropriate pest control products when necessary.
