Unfortunately, allergens can flourish in our homes. While it’s impossible to get rid of allergens entirely, there are some simple steps to allergy-proof your home and reduce your exposure.
Where are allergens found in the home? Indoor allergens tend to be concentrated in the areas where we spend the most time. The bedroom and the living room are hotspots in the home. Dust mites, pollen, and pet dander can accumulate in mattresses, pillows, carpets, and window treatments. Basements are also known to harbor mold, irritants, and dust.
Here is a list of indoor allergy triggers:
- Ragweed Pollen
- Pet dander
Ways to get rid of allergens in your home:
- Keep your carpet and rugs clean
- Hire pest control
- Consult with a Home Inspector
- Install washable windows covers
- Vacuum and Dust Regularly
- Keep furnace filters clean
- Use a dehumidifier to reduce indoor allergies
While it’s impossible to get rid of allergens entirely you can control their impact at home. By taking these steps you will ultimately create a home environment that is healthier and more comfortable for you and your family.
