Allergen-Proof Indoor Air-4 Tips for Clearing Your Air

Written by 

Air that is free of allergens is one of the best ways to manage allergies because you are minimizing your contact with allergens that can cause flare-ups. Here are 5 easy things to do that will help make your air healthier.

Make Your Bedding Dust Mite Proof---You can have this done 15 minutes after you get home from buying them at the store. Most specialty bath and bedding shops have these as well as many of the superstores.

These covers for mattresses and pillows usually zip close. They are impenetrable by mites so your bedding does not become a haven for these bugs. Just this step alone drastically reduces the number of mites in the bedroom which is a good thing.

If you are allergic to these little critters, you will know they are there because of the congestion and other symptoms that keep you awake each night. It is actually the protein in the feces that is the allergen. They are indiscriminate about where they deposit feces. Lovely thought isn't it?

Reduce Moisture---Dripping faucets, leaking pipes from the dishwasher, icemaker, or washing machine can all result in moisture that attracts mold. Mold is always in the air, but it only becomes a problem when it finds water.

And when it finds water it grows and produces more spores. It is a vicious cycle unless you eliminate the water.

Check all pipes that carry water. Make sure the joints are tight and are not allowing water to accumulate. And check the basement to make sure that there is proper drainage and water does not stand after a heavy rain.

Removing the water source reduces the amount of mold that can grow, that reduces the number of spores available to go airborne.

Trap The Most Particles---Water has the best chance of preventing particles from returning to the air. Using water on the mop and dust cloth will trap more allergens than anything that is dry such as a broom or feather duster.

Many vacuum cleaners have the best intentions, but wind up sending many of the particles collected back into the air. A vacuum has a HEPA or high efficiency particle arresting (HEPA) filter is more likely to trap particles for good.

24 Hour Filtration---Unfortunately, many indoor allergy triggers have been around since cave man times, and have very little to do with how clean you keep your home.. And it's true that by taking the suggestions above you can reduce the airborne allergen count.

But indoor allergens such as household dust, and dust mites often work in concert with other seasonal irritants to keep allergy symptoms brewing all the time, and you continually feeling less that 100%.

By using an air purifier with a high efficiency particle arresting (HEPA) filter, you can eliminate 99,997 out of every 10,000 airborne allergens that are.3 microns in size or larger.

No home or indoor space is ever going to be 100 percent allergen-free. But following these suggestions will produce air that comes pretty close to being just that.
