9 Ways to Get Rid of the Allergens in Your Home

Your home is a place where you can feel comfortable, relaxed, and safe. However, if your house is full of dust, pet hair, dirt, and other airborne particles, your allergy and asthma symptoms may be at an all time high, making you feel like your home is not the safe place that it’s supposed to be.

Want to breathe easier?

Try these 9 tips for minimizing indoor allergens:

  • Manage the humidity in your home with a dehumidifier.

  • Vacuum your home weekly, especially carpet and upholstered furniture.

  • Use an air purifier and filters.

  • Use dust mite covers on your mattress and pillows.

  • Wash your bedding and fabric curtains weekly in hot water.

  • Use exhaust fans to help reduce moisture accumulation during and after baths and showers.

  • Use a damp microfiber cloth when dusting to trap and get rid of dust particles.

  • Switch to environmentally friendly cleaning products.

  • Keep the windows closed during prime pollen season.

Along with these practices, you should also consider the last time your air ducts were cleaned. Did you know the air in a home, along with those annoying allergens and pollutants, is typically circulated through your HVAC system and air ducts 5 to 7 times throughout the day?

During the circulation process, it is common for allergens and other debris to build up in the air ducts. By having your air ducts properly cleaned, you lessen the opportunity for allergens to settle and accumulate in the air ducts.
