Home Improvement - Alleviate Your Allergies With These Simple Tips

 

Allergies and Asthma certainly can make your life unpleasant, and if you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from these ailments, it can sometimes feel like you have a perpetual cold or virus. However, there are some ways to remove or reduce the amount of common allergens in your home, and this can have a significant positive impact on your health.

While you cannot control all of the allergens floating around outside, you do have some control about what happens in your house. Begin the process by calling in a Baton Rouge carpet cleaner and have them give your carpets a deep cleaning. This removes large amounts of dust, dander, pollen, fungi, mold and other dangerous toxins that trigger allergies. Be sure to schedule cleanings every six months to ensure that dust and dirt do not build up.

A Denham Springs carpet cleaning service, Baton Rouge carpet cleaners or perhaps a Prairieville carpet cleaning service also might offer other helpful services. You might consider adding on rug cleaning, upholstery cleaning and even mattress cleaning, as this will help remove a great deal of dust and dirt. In addition, ask about air duct cleaning, which also can reduce the allergens that float around your house and become embedded in carpeting and fabric.

Once you have everything nice and clean, there are ways to keep the dust and dander and pollen from settling in again. Purpose a top-of-the-line vacuum with a HEPA filter and use this at least once each week, if not twice. Be sure to vacuum around the edges of your walls, as dust settles quite easily in those spaces. Vacuum and damp clean or mop your tile and wood floors once each week, as well. When dusting other house surfaces, be sure to use a damp cloth as a dry cloth or feather duster just throws dust around rather than removing it. If you are the one who suffers from the allergies, wear a quality dust mask while cleaning.

Removing your shoes and carefully wiping your pets' feet also reduces the amount of dirt and toxins that make their way into your home. During peak allergy season, consider keeping your windows closed and running your air conditioner to limit the amount of pollen that gets into your house. Also be sure to replace or clean the air filter in your home every few months.

Be sure to wash your bedding once each week in hot water. Consider buying covers for your mattress and pillows that keep the dust mites out. Don't forget to vacuum this room every week, including your closet, which gathers a huge amount of dust. You also might consider placing an air purifier in your bedroom, as well, although these can be pricey. Still, a very clean bedroom can go a long way to reducing the irritating effects of allergies.
