Tips for Reducing the Allergens in Your Home

Find out how you can deal with the allergens inside your home.

Spring has finally sprung!  Unfortunately, for many people, the beginning of spring marks the opening of allergy season.  While there’s little you can do about the allergens outside your front door, there are steps that you can take to deal with allergens inside your home.  Here are some of the steps you can take.

Dust Smarter

While dusting is a great way to getting rid of the dust an allergens that settle on your home’s flat surfaces, you should always follow up by running a vacuum.  This is because some of the dust and allergens inevitably fall to the floor in the process of dusting.  By running the vacuum afterwards, you are making sure that you are capturing every last sneeze-inducing particle.

Air Your Bedding

Dust settles on plush surfaces the same way that it does on flat surfaces, it’s just harder to see.  That’s why you should regularly wash your blankets, sheets, pillow cases, and other bedding.  You should launder your bedding about once a month and, to take care of dust in between washings, you should run your bedding through the dryer with a damp towel to attract trapped dust.

Filter Your Air

Finally, you can take care of allergens in the air by investing in a HEPA filter for your home.  These filters are incredibly efficient, removing 100% of airborne pollen and ragweed particles.  Additionally, these filters can also remove 99.9% percent of other allergens from the air as well.
