Around 10 to 30% of the world’s population experiences Allergic Rhinitis. Dust and dirt, in addition to allergens, can easily give someone a sneezing fit or even more serious respiratory problems.
The way you clean your home can really improve your allergy symptoms. Removing allergens is the key. Common allergens found in a home are dust mites, pollen, pet dander, insect droppings, and mold.
Our experts share the best tips to clean your home in a way that reduces your allergies:
Don’t bother with brooms and mopping the floor of your house. The best way to keep dust mites at bay is to vacuum your home regularly. The suction on a vacuum is the most effective way to remove all possible dust, dirt, and debris in your home.
Doing so regularly will get rid of any germs we bring into the home with our dirty shoes too. These particles embed deep in the carpet fibers and cause allergies.
Change and wash the bedding once a week
Most individuals don’t realize that their bed linens play a crucial role when it comes to their allergies. Bedsheets are covered with human hair, pet hair, and dead skin, in addition to the pollen you bring in on your clothes, dust mites, and dander. This begins to build up over days. It’s best to have your home’s bedsheets changed once every week. Use a fragrance-free detergent and get into the habit of vacuuming your duvet/comforter twice a week.
Have your home’s carpets cleaned out
Carpets accumulate the most dust and dirt, especially if you wear shoes around the house and have pets. The fibers of the carpet are like a magnet, they attract allergens and trap them in. The build-up of these allergens over a short period of time can become so significant that it begins to impact your health. Vacuuming the carpets of your home helps remove allergens, but not entirely.
Get your home’s carpets cleaned by professionals. The steam cleaning provided by our experts removes all dirt, allergens, and debris from your carpets effectively while leaving a fresh scent that won’t trigger a sneezing fit.
