Cleaning Tips for Allergy Proofing Your House
Were you aware that more than half of the population has at least one type of allergen, if not several? Allergies are among the top 5 chronic disease recorded in the United States. While most people might think allergens are typically found outdoors, they would be greatly mistaken. In fact, most of the allergens people experience come from polluted indoor air.
Dealing with allergens in the home, like dust, mold, mildew, dust mites, and others, can seem challenging. There are several effective methods to reduce the number of allergens in your home to make it more allergy-proof.
For instance, in the bedroom, it is important to wash all bedding, including pillow cases, comforters, sheets, and mattress pads, on a regular basis to remove allergens. It is also recommended to use zip-up, protective mattress covers and pillow case covers to prevent dust mites from getting into pillows and the mattress.
