5 Easy Ways To Reduce Allergens in Your Home

5 Easy Ways To Reduce Allergens in Your HomeA runny nose, itchy eyes, and scratchy throat are all signs that your body has come into contact with allergens. Many indoor allergens can cause people to have an unpleasant reaction when they enter your home, such as pet dander, grass and tree pollen, dust mites, and mold. To create a clean and pleasant environment, learn these five easy ways to reduce allergens in your home.

1. Vacuum Your Home Regularly

Dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens can collect on the floors in your home. When people walk around in your house, allergens can cling to their feet and spread throughout each room. To prevent this, vacuum your home regularly. It will reduce the number of allergens on your floors and prevent them from spreading to other rooms.

2. Clean Your Furniture

Furniture can easily collect pollen and dust mites, especially if you have fabric furniture, so it's essential to clean your furniture regularly. If you are very sensitive to allergens, consider choosing leather furniture instead of fabric furniture. One of the advantages of leather sofas is that dust, pollen, and other allergens do not cling to them. So if you have a leather couch, you don't have to clean it as often as a fabric one.

3. Remove Your Shoes at the Door

Another easy way to reduce allergens in your home is to remove your shoes at the door. Since many allergens come from outside, they collect on the bottoms of your shoes. If you walk through your home with your shoes on, you distribute the allergens on the floors. The easiest way to prevent this is to remove your shoes outside or at the door.

4. Change Your Sheets Often

Dust mites and other allergens collect in your bedsheets. Remember to change your sheets often to prevent the buildup of allergens. You should wash your sheets at least every two weeks to prevent the buildup of dust and dust mites.

5. Turn On the Air Purifier

Sometimes, tiny allergens can float around in the air and cause problems. To clean the air in your home, consider using an air purifier. These machines can be noisy, so it's best to turn them on during the day instead of at night when you want to sleep.
