Tips for Reducing the Allergens in Your Home

This allergy season, find out how you can take care of the allergens inside your home.

Spring is officially here!  Unfortunately, for those who suffer from seasonal allergies, spring also means the start of allergy season.  While there’s little you can do about the dust, pollen, and other allergens outside, there are steps that you can take to deal with the allergens inside your home.  Try out these suggestions to minimize the number of allergens trapped in your home.

Dust Smarter

While dusting is a great way to trap the dust and allergens that settle on hard surfaces, it’s important that you vacuum the area after you dust.  This will take care of the allergens that fall and settle on the ground as you dust.  Finally, to stop dust from resettling on your hard surfaces, make sure you apply a thin layer of furniture polish to repel dust and allergens.

Wash Your Bedding

Dust settles on your plush surfaces just as it does on your hard surfaces, it’s just harder to see.  To ensure that you’re not cuddling up to a bed full of allergens every night, make sure that you wash your bedding on a regular basis.  To take care of dust in between laundry days, you can run your blankets, sheets, pillow cases, and so on through the dryer with a damp towel.  The towel will attract dust while the tumbling action of your dryer will fluff your bedding and leave it feeling fresh.

Filter Your Air

Finally, to deal with the allergens floating around in the air, you should invest in a HEPA filter for your home.  These filters can remove 100% of airborne pollen and ragweed particles.  Additionally, there filters can also eliminate 99.9% of other allergens from the air inside your home.
