Allergy-causing pests often hide in unexpected places in the home. Try the tips below to get rid of these allergens and reduce your allergic reactions!
Bust out the Vacuum – Dust mites and pet dander harbor in carpet and rugs. Vacuum weekly using a vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to trap tiny particles.
Freshen Up Your Bedding – Wash bedding weekly or bi-weekly in hot water (about 130-degrees) to get rid of mites and mold.
Wipe Down the Bathroom – Mold often breeds on moist bathroom walls. Wipe them down with a chlorine-bleach solution (1 ounce of bleach to 1 quart of water) to prevent mold build-up.
Avoid Pollen Peak Hours – Try to keep windows shut between high-pollen-count hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and use the air conditioner instead.
