How to Make Your Home Safe from Allergies

Millions of people in the world have different kinds of allergies and it is possible that you are one of them and you don’t even know about it.

If you find that you have some kind of allergy you don’t have to freak out, but there are some steps to make your life better.How to Make Your Home Safe from Allergies

Pollen

Once you get into your home, it is a good idea to wash your face, take a shower, brush your hair and change your clothes to make sure that you don’t bring pollen into the house and pollen won’t be able to spread through it.

Dust your duster

Vacuuming and dusting in your home is very important to make sure that there is as little dust and dirt as possible.

It is interesting to know that about 99% of the dust you can find is made up by dead skin cells. Decrease this to reduce the dust mites.

Redecoration

If you are allergic to dust mites, your carpet and furniture could make your allergy even worse. This is why you should give up the carpet and go for tiles, hardwood or linoleum and the cloth furniture should also be replaced by leather.

If you don’t have enough money to redecorate the entire house, the first place to start with is the bedroom. This is because you spend the majority of your time in this room.

Leaks

The leaks could contain mildew and mold and most probably you don’t check them frequently. About two times per year you should check the water hookup under the sink and of your refrigerator.

Usually people forget about these pipes because they don’t see them too often. Nonetheless if you see a leak while it is small, you can prevent future problems. This rule also applies to the plumbing in your bathroom.

The mattress

In case you are allergic to dust mites, it may be a good idea to have allergy-proof pillowcases, box spring and mattresses. Another good idea to think about is not letting your pets spend too much time in your bedroom. It is possible that you aren’t allergic to your pet but it could have dust and pollen in its fur. This is why it is best to brush your pet’s fur as often as possible and try to bathe them. The bathing should take place outside in the fresh air.
