Ever find yourself sneezing, coughing and wheezing when the temperature drops? Airborne particles can trigger these symptoms. Known as “allergens” and “irritants” these particles exist both inside and outside the home. Here are a few tips to prep your living space this season.
Shut your windows. The first step is to keep your windows closed. This will keep moisture levels between 40 and 50 percent, which will limit dust mites and mold.
Keep it clean. Keep on top of vacuuming and dusting as there are many allergens that are already trapped inside your home, from pet dander to dust mites.
Steam Technology. A new line of washing machines with Steam Technology can remove over 95% of common household allergens. These washers can handle anything you can throw in and will have you breathing easier in the comfort of your own home.
Wash Linens Once a Week. You spend a lot of time in bed and your sheets are a hot spot for allergens. Washing linens regularly helps reduce the accumulation of dust.
