Every year, the arrival of spring is more and more aggressive for those with allergies. Runny nose, itching, dry cough, red and watery eyes, sneezing and even asthma attacks are some of the symptoms that mean Spring Allergies are here.

This makes one of the most beautiful seasons of the year unbearable for those who suffer from allergies, ultimately affecting their school and work performance. With the good weather around the corner, it’s time to better prepare for the high levels of pollen in the air.

It’s Allergy Season: How To Be Prepared

One of the critical points for collecting all sorts of dust as well as other allergen inducing bacteria is our own home. In this article, we talk about a few basic tips to keep our bedroom, bathroom or living room allergen free.

1. Identify and eliminate objects that accumulate dust.

For instance, if you are thinking about renovating your decor and there is a person suffering from allergies in the house, choose leather couches (not upholstered) because they do not retain the dust. If you are thinking of renovating the shelves, choose models with glass doors so that books do not accumulate dust and increase your or your loved ones spring allergies.

2. Always use a humid clog to clean the dust off the furniture.

The reason for this is that the humid clog will trap the particles, while a dry towel will only spread them over the room air. It will also help to use a vacuum cleaner equipped with high capture filters.

3.Clean the carpets more often.

Shake them frequently and do not forget to vacuum them, preferably with a high-performance vacuum cleaner. Carpets are an ideal home for dust mites, so if you want to be more rigorous, take advantage of the rise of spring season to take them to a laundromat, so you can ensure they are completely mite-free.

4. Wash your bed sheets twice a week.

It sounds a bit over the top but if you have allergies this can really help. You can put them in the washing machine but when you’re done, don’t leave them in there for too long otherwise they’ll get moldy.

 

5. In addition to airing the bed, get used to vacuuming the mattress.

Do this on both sides a couple of times a month; it does not take long and it’s effective against dust mites. You will also find dust mite mattress covers very useful, as well as the use of dust mite products every few months.

6. In extreme cases, animals should sleep outside the room.

If your pets are used to sleeping with you, keep them away during the pollen season, as they can carry dust particles in their bodies and fur, especially dogs. You should also take the opportunity to wash them more often.

7. Declare total war on mold!

Mold grows in hot and humid places, so the bathroom is where you need to be most careful. Air the room well once you’ve finish showering to lower the temperature and expel the humidity. If there is some vapor accumulating in the windows, dry them with paper, do the same to the walls, in case you have tiles and small creases.

8. Ventilate the house in the afternoon when pollen levels are no longer so high.

You should find out which days are more critical for allergy sufferers so that you can be prepared; During these days, it is best to avoid opening windows until sunset. Try not to dry your clothes outdoors on thoses days, as well, so as not to trap the pollen particles in them.

9. If you have air conditioners, clean your filters and pipes regularly using specific products.

This is something we always ignore, forgetting that filters collect all the dirt in the house air and are critical to the quality of the air we breathe.
