Home Health Tips for People with Allergies

January 13, 2017 | Advice General

 

Do you, or someone in your home struggle with allergy issues? While the most obvious culprits to avoid are pets with dander, or yard work when pollen is bad, there are some other tips to consider. Follow these home health tips for people with allergies to help avoid an allergy flare up.

Washable Curtains and Blinds

If you have curtains or blinds, replace them with washable curtains and/or roller shades. This will make it so you can wash your curtains and shades as they get dirty to reduce the amount of dust in your home. Additionally, heavier washable curtains will also help you reduce your home heating bills.

Wash Bedding

Wash your bedding more regularly. This will help reduce the amount of allergens which collect in your bedding. You spend upwards of 8 hours a day in your bed, so if you have bad allergies, try and wash your bedding more often. Along the same lines, take a shower before going to bed if you spend a lot of time outside or around common allergens so you don’t bring them with you into bed.

Install an Air Purifier

If you don’t have an air purifier in your home, you should consider installing one if you have allergies. An air purifier will remove contaminants and impurities from the air as it circulates through your HVAC system. To install an air purifier for your HVAC system, get in touch with a local Maryland air purifier installation company today.

Change the Air Filter

If you have an air purification system and/or a central heating system, you should change the air filters on these systems frequently. This home health tip for people with allergies will help you avoid breathing in any unnecessary mold, dander, or pollen with a quick and simple switch of the filter.

Less Carpet, More Hardwood

Carpeting will collect dust, dander, and other particles much more than a hardwood or similar surface. This is simply because it’s much harder to clean a carpet than it is to clean a smooth surface. For this reason, one home health tip for people with allergies is to remove their carpeting and install hardwood floors. Then, if you still want the warmth and comfort of a carpet, use washable rugs and clean them frequently.
