Allergies are often associated with the arrival of spring, but indoor allergy sufferers will often find themselves sniffing and sneezing year-round. The culprit? Indoor allergens such as dust, dust mites and pet hair and dander. So how do you make sure your home is a respite from both seasonal and interior allergens and create a healthy environment for you and your family?
|1. Keep it clean. Regularly cleaning your home will go far in reducing allergens such as dust, dust mites and pet dander.|
|2. Redo your floors. Replacing rugs and carpets with wood or vinyl floorings will help minimize dust and other allergens that become embedded in fabric fibers.|
|3. Groom your furry friends. Regularly bathing and brushing your pets will help reduce the amount of dander and pet hair in your home.|
|4. Go on mold patrol. Be on the lookout for any leaks or moisture in your home as this can cause mold to thrive.|
