Allergy season is upon us, and according to the national weather service, we’re in for a big one! Thankfully, there are some things you can do to keep the allergies outside the house, making it a safe haven for you and your family.
Don’t leave the house open
It seems like a good idea to air out the house. You open all the windows, sliding doors, and let the breeze run through. However, what you’re really doing is letting the allergens in. Opt to close up instead, and focus on cleaning around the home.
Get rid of that dust
You might be waiting for Spring cleaning to do all the dusting. Instead, get ahead and dust before the allergy season hits. Get rid of the dust in all the small creases and cracks of the home to reduce your reaction.
Clean the sheets
It’s time to do a big cleaning. Clean all the sheets, blankets, and pillow cases in your home. Cleaning the sheets help to get rid of any lingering allergens or bacteria that might be hanging around.
Steam clean your carpets
A lot of people overlook their carpets. But carpets tend to soak in and keep allergens and bacteria. Vacuuming will only go so far. Instead, rent a machine or hire professionals to steam clean your carpet. This could significantly reduce allergens around your home.
We hope these tips help you survive this allergy season! Don’t forget to keep us in mind for your home inspection needs.
