Want a few tips to keep your allergies in check at home? We have provided you with a few ways to reduce home allergens!



Shower Before Bed


The fabric on the clothes we wear has plenty of nooks and crannies that can collect dust and other allergens as we make our way home every day. Taking a shower before bed is the best way to ensure we aren’t bringing pet dander, pollen, dust, or dirt to bed with us.


Clean floors


Dust can accumulate in plenty of different places, but most allergens start off airborne and end up settling on the floor. Cleaning our floors at least once or twice a week will help to keep our home free from allergy-causing dust and debri.


Replace Air Filters


Do you remember the last time you changed the filter in your AC unit? If it’s been more than 3 months, you should consider getting a new filter. If your allergies have been especially bad this season, you might even think about replacing the filter monthly. It is important to change filters when they are dusty and dirty to ensure your air is being cleaned properly and allergens are being removed from your home. 


Clean Out The Fridge


You can find moisture buildup in your fridge and mold loves moisture. Don’t forget to clean the seals around the door frame, all the shelves, and drawers. Making sure to clean the fridge thoroughly and throwing away old food will help prevent mold from being able to grow. 


Wash and Brush Pets


We all love our fur babies, but with all that fur comes dander and other allergens. Making sure our furry friends get regularly bathed and brushed is the best way to element their dander, keep their coats healthy, and help keep our homes allergen-free.
