Spring is just around the corner! Flowers begin to blossom, birds come out to sing - and your nose starts to run.
As temperatures rise, pollen and people start moving around more than usual. This makes your allergies kick back in, just like they did a year ago.
And, believe it or not, there are countless allergy-causing bombs right in your home. Don't worry! You can defuse the situation if you clean up the house.
Yes! Cleaning will help you - and here are the top five ways cleaning will help with allergies.
1. Pay attention to your bathroom
Why are we talking about the bathroom? Shouldn't we be talking about blinds, curtains, rugs, and other allergy-prone places?
Here's the thing: your bathroom is full of water. And, if you don't keep all that moisture in check, mold will grow overnight.
Mold, alongside dust, is one of the biggest allergy triggers there are. If you spot mold, scrub it away immediately!
2. Vacuum every other day
A vacuum is your go-to ally in the allergy battle. Sure, you can use a broom - but that'll end up being more trouble than it's worth.
Make sure your vacuum has a HEPA filter, though. That filter is fundamental and will be the one thing that deals with allergens the right way.
You should vacuum one or two days per week; three, if you're in a tough spot allergy-wise.
3. Weekly dusting done right
You can probably guess how important dusting is if you suffer from allergies - but are you doing it right?
Using a duster will only spread bad things around, leaving you worse than before when you finish. What you need is a microfiber cloth.
When you dust using a microfiber cloth, you'll realize how different things are. Instead of moving the dust around, the particles will attach to the cloth. It's ten times better than any duster!
4. Swap air filters every month
Every person prone to allergies knows it's better to close the windows and let the AC take care of the airflow.
Simply put, that little machine is a life-saver. It can filter the air coming in, making sure little to no allergens break into your house.
Unfortunately, air filters do not last for a long time, especially if you're constantly using the AC. That's why you should change them, at least once every 30 to 60 days.
5. Consider taking care of your rug - forever
While rugs are a nice touch - they are also the number one enemy of people who have severe allergies.
Sure, the rug ties the room together, but is it worth the hassle? You're accumulating more dust and allergens down there than anywhere else in the house!
If you decide to keep your rug, make sure you take good care of it regularly. Let a professional handle it - or you'll trigger your allergies like never before.
