How do you celebrate the start of spring? Do you open the windows and let the crisp breeze invigorate your home? Do you pull out the rubber gloves and clean the house from top to bottom? However you choose to welcome the changing season, it’s important to keep allergens away. Discover how to allergy-proof your home in four easy steps.
Change the Air Filters
Changing air filters regularly is one of the best ways to maintain a well-ventilated home. Ensure that you purchase HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters to reduce airborne dust, allergens, bacteria, and viruses. It’s recommended to change your air filters every three months, and more so depending on air conditioning usage.
Inspect the Bathroom for Mold
Mold accumulates quickly, and even the cleanest of bathrooms could contain slight traces of mildew. Inspect the water pipes for leaks or problems. Clean the walls with a natural, non-toxic cleaner, and ensure that the ventilation fans are working properly. If you see mold, scrub it away with vinegar and baking soda.
Consider a Change
Certain aspects of your home, like the carpets and curtains, generate dust and allergens. This spring, consider changing up your home a bit! If you’ve been looking for a new way to improve your home, consider replacing the carpeting with hardwood flooring. Replace the curtains with light filtering shades or blinds. If you don’t want to change your home, take the time to thoroughly clean dust generators. Vacuum the carpet and couches once a week, and dust the curtains and other fabrics regularly.
If your allergies are severe, assess your current landscape. Choose low-allergy flowers to plant within your gardens, such as viola and impatiens. Have you ever worked with native plants before? Not only are they beautiful and low-allergy, but they also provide numerous ecological benefits!
