Many people suffer from allergies each year, symptoms include coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and itchy eyes. It can be difficult for people with allergies to avoid exposure to allergens when they are outside. It is important to get some relief from the outside world, and this can only be done if you make your home as allergy proof as you can. Here are 5 tips to help make your home a healthier place to live.
Keep Things Dry
A wet / humid environment is a breeding ground for mold and dust mites. Try and keep the temperature below 72 degrees and the relative humidity below 50 %, use dehumidifiers if possible. Try and keep moisture to a minimum, it will help!
Clean Your Carpets
According to the American College of Asthma, dust mites can live inside your carpets. Make sure you get your carpets professionally cleaned once a year. You could try Vacuuming yourself, but a professional can do it better and they have the proper tools for the job.
Try a HEPA Filter
A HEPA filter can remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, smoke, odor, mold spores, and pet dander. They are not expensive and can make your home much healthier to live in. If your AC does not come with HEPA, consider purchasing a portable air purifier with HEPA.
When you clean your home, avoid synthetic household cleaners with chemicals, try non-toxic / natural products.
Make sure you change the filters in your heating and air conditioning often.
