Cleaning tips for Allergy Sufferers!

Indoor allergies can make cleaning the house feel like a chore, but taking some precautions can make the task a lot easier. The goal is to remove allergens from the air and surfaces in your home, so you can breathe easier and reduce allergy symptoms. Here are some tips for cleaning your house when you have indoor allergies:

Use Allergen-Reducing Cleaning Products

Look for cleaning products that specifically target allergens such as dust, mold, and pet dander. These products often have special formulas that can trap and remove allergens, rather than just spreading them around.

Dust Regularly

Dust accumulates quickly, so it’s important to dust your home at least once a week. Use a damp Jumbo Microfiber Cloth to trap and remove dust, instead of just pushing it around. Pay extra attention to surfaces like bookshelves, blinds, and table tops where dust can accumulate.

Vacuum Regularly

Regular vacuuming is a must when you have indoor allergies. Vacuuming helps remove dust, pet hair, and other allergens from carpets, upholstery, and flooring. Be sure to use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, which can trap allergens as small as 0.3 microns. Alternatively, use Lola Rola Sticky Mop® to pick up dirt, dust, pet hair and more. It works like a vacuum without a cord!

Wash Bedding Weekly

Dust mites love to hide in bedding, so it’s important to wash your sheets, pillowcases, and comforters at least once a week in hot water (at least 130°F). Using allergen-proof mattress and pillow covers can also help reduce your exposure to dust mites.

Keep the Humidity Low 

Dust mites, mold, and other allergens thrive in humid environments. Use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity in your home below 50 percent, and use a fan or open windows to increase air flow.

Clean the Bathroom

Mold loves moist environments like bathrooms, so be sure to clean the shower, tub, and sink regularly. Use a cleaner specifically designed to remove mold, and be sure to run the exhaust fan or open a window to increase air flow while cleaning.

Remove Carpets

If you have severe indoor allergies, removing carpeting can make a big difference. Hard flooring like tile, hardwood, or linoleum is much easier to clean and doesn’t trap allergens like carpeting can.

Consider Air Purifiers

Air purifiers can be especially helpful for removing allergens from the air. Look for air purifiers with HEPA filters, which can trap allergens as small as 0.3 microns. Place air purifiers in bedrooms and other high-traffic areas to help reduce your exposure to allergens.

By following these tips, you can make cleaning your home a lot easier and more manageable, even when you have indoor allergies. And by removing allergens from your home, you can breathe easier and reduce allergy symptoms.
