Here’s How to Prevent Allergens From Entering Your Home
Posted on April 15th, 2019
When it comes to seasonal allergies, nothing is off limits in your home. From the bedding you’re currently using to the curtains you just washed two days ago, pesky outdoor allergens always find a way to creep inside and linger around much longer than you would like. If you’re trying to keep the outdoors, well, outside, here are a few tips to jot down:
Replace Air Filters
When was the last time you replaced your air filter? While this might seem like a hard-hitting question for some homeowners, it should really be a piece of cake to answer. Unlike other features in your house, it’s essential to have your air filter replaced every few months. This not only helps your central air system work at an average pace (preventing overworking it), but it will also help prevent any new allergens from lingering around the system.
Vacuum All Carpeting
A task that most homeowners should add to their to-do list is to vacuum all rugs and carpets in their home. Granted, you might not think about the nitty-gritty of what actually lingers in these floor-bound fibers, but it could something you might not want to know. And if you trek through your home with shoes on, you’re only making matters worse. If you’re not looking forward to vacuuming, then you can always invest in a vacuuming “robot” that just needs to be charged and emptied throughout the day!
Install an Air Purifier
A great way to keep your indoor air quality fresher than can be is to invest in an air purifier. These gadgets not only help those with asthma and seasonal allergies, but they will help make the overall air quality much cleaner to inhale.
