These Spring Cleaning Tips will help you avoid allergies
Spring is here! The snow is melting, and the green is growing. Allergies can result from this warm weather. You may not be aware that allergens lurk around your home, which can worsen your symptoms. These hidden allergens can be eliminated to relieve symptoms.
#1 Learn Your Triggers
You need to take care of indoor and outdoor allergens in a different way. It is crucial to know what allergens can trigger symptoms in your family. Indoor allergens such as dust, mold, or pet hair can trigger allergic reactions. It is possible to open your windows and air out your home. Keep your windows closed to reduce outdoor allergens like tree pollen and grass.
Here are some common triggers you should investigate:
- Pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds
- Dander from cat and dog
- Dust Mites
- Mold Spores
#2 HVAC filters
You should change your HVAC filter once a month if you have severe allergies. This is compared to changing it every 60 days if you don't have any serious allergies. Your MERV rating should range from 7-12. Higher MERV ratings do not necessarily mean better. Your MERV rating should not be too high. This can cause your allergies to worsen. To protect your family's health, choose the highest rating possible that maximizes airflow.
#3 Shower Curtains
Spring cleaning tip: Wash or replace your shower curtains! Shower curtains can be washed in the washer and dried on the hanger. You can prevent mold growth in your shower by washing it or changing it every now and then. Mold growth can also be prevented by reducing humidity and moisture in the bathroom.
#4 How to Wash Your Bedding
Because of the accumulation of skin flakes and dust on our sheets, it is important to wash your bedding every week. Cleaning your mattress and pillows may be helpful if you have allergies that worsen at night.
While you may have dusted your shelves when was the last occasion that you cleaned your door frame, window frame, or ceiling fan? Dust can build up in all places, so dusting frequently in hard-to-reach areas can have a significant impact on your allergies.
#6 Happy Home
Keep your house at half the relative humidity to prevent mold spores from growing. Cooler and dryer homes are less likely to be triggers for allergens.
#7 Trap dust
Dust is more likely to get into your lungs if it's pushed into the atmosphere. Feather dusters are able to do exactly that-push the dust around. You can trap the dust with a damp cloth or paper towel so that it can be disposed of properly and not just pushed around.
#8 Remove Trapped Allergens
Carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture need to be vacuumed at least once a week and professionally cleaned at least every four months. They act as air filters within your home, trapping allergens. Midland Master Carpet Cleaners Four Seasons, a professional Carpet, Rug, and Upholstery Cleaning Midland Tx company, is ready for your spring cleaning efforts.
#9 Use Natural Cleaners
Strong or scented chemicals can make your allergies worse. Allergy symptoms can be relieved by natural cleaners such as vinegar and baking soda.
#10 Remove Any Sitting Water
Standing water is a great environment for mold growth. Checking for any leaks in your home can help you identify mold if it is a trigger for allergy symptoms. Mold allergy symptoms can be eliminated by identifying and eliminating standing water or leaking pipes.
