Allergens are sneaky. They invite themselves into your home and they do not simply part ways easily. When allergens get into your home, you may begin to sneeze, experience a runny nose, or have itchy, red eyes. Below, we will go over some ways that you can prevent allergens in your home.
Way 1: Keep Shoes Outside
The bottom of your shoes are dirty and allergens stick to them. When you allow shoes to run amuck through your home, you are spreading all types of allergens around. To help limit your exposure to these allergens, utilize door mats inside and outside the front door of your home and always ask your friends, family, and guests to take their shoes off.
Way 2: Get Rid of Carpets
If you do not need to have carpets in your home, then toss them out. Carpets hold on to allergens and can exacerbate any allergies that you do have. In fact, pet dandruff and dust mites live in your carpet.
If you need to have an area rug or two in your home, make sure they are cleaned and replaced on a regular basis.
Way 3: Replace Air Filters
Your air filter is designed to catch dust, dirt, and particles in the air, but if you are not replacing it on a regular basis, you are only reintroducing these allergens into your living space. You should ideally change your air filter once a month.
Way 4: Keep the Bathroom Free from Mold
Mold and mildew are common in the bathroom because moisture is trapped in this area. You should make sure that the shower stall is dried out when you are done using it and you should use some form of ventilation to let the humidity out.
Way 5: Have Your Home Cleaned Regularly
If you want to keep your home free from allergens, you need to have a regular cleaning schedule. Cleaning your home once a month is not going to cut it since allergens can find their way in your home quickly. You need to make sure that you are wiping down counters, vacuuming any carpets, mopping floors, and dusting the fans and knickknacks.
