10 tips for keeping your home allergy-free during spring
Spring allergies can make life miserable for many people. The good news is that there are several steps you can take to minimize the effects of allergens in your home. Here are 10 tips for keeping your home allergy-free during spring:
- Keep windows and doors closed: During spring, pollen and other allergens are in the air, and they can easily find their way into your home. To keep them out, keep your windows and doors closed as much as possible.
- Use air conditioning: Instead of opening windows, use your air conditioner to cool your home. Make sure to change the air filter in your HVAC system regularly.
- Vacuum regularly: Vacuuming can help remove allergens from carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Make sure to use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to trap allergens.
- Use allergy-proof covers: Use allergy-proof covers for your mattress, box springs, and pillows. These covers can help keep allergens like dust mites out.
- Wash bedding regularly: Wash your bedding in hot water once a week to kill dust mites and other allergens. We recommend our natural plant based laundry detergent sheets.
- Control humidity: High humidity can promote the growth of mold, which can trigger allergies. Use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity in your home below 50 percent.
- Keep pets clean: Pets can carry pollen and other allergens into your home. Bathe your pets regularly to remove allergens from their fur.
- Remove clutter: Clutter can trap allergens and make it harder to clean your home. Keep your home free of clutter to make it easier to remove allergens.
- Use natural cleaners: Some cleaners can aggravate allergies. Use natural cleaners like PÜR Evergreen to clean your home.
- Hire a professional: If you have severe allergies, consider hiring a professional to clean your home.
