20 Smart, Simple Ways to Reduce Allergies In Your Home

Here’s 20 ways to reduce you allergies in the one place where you have control:  your home.

Get Plants

Plants help filter the air, add aesthetic to your decor, and will lower allergens in the home by taking harmful chemicals out and replacing them with sweet, sweet oxygen.

1

Wet Dust

Dusting with a dry cloth tends to kick up dust rather than clean it. Always use a wet cleaning rag or cloth to get rid of dust.

2

Vacuum Often

Use a vacuum with a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. These trap tiny particles and don’t let them jump back into the air.

3

Clean Your Bedding

Wash your bedding every single week, and do a deep clean of your mattress and pillows at least once a month.

4

Reduce Cloth

Pulling up carpets and replacing your flooring with hardwood, laminate, or linoleum is a big step, but it pays off in far fewer places for allergens to hide.

5

Wash Your Windows

We don’t think of windows as being allergy sites, but they often develop mold and mildew thanks to condensation and wetness. This is particularly true if they have wooden frames

6

Change Your Blinds

Choosing blinds that are machine-washable and then keeping them clean will also avoid having allergens hide there.

7

Know Thyself

Understanding what will set off your allergies is as important as keeping your home safe from them.
