In-home allergens can wreak havoc for allergy sufferers, making it difficult to cope with work, family, and social commitments. Cleaning your home can help with reducing allergy symptoms and the frequency of attacks.

Here are some simple cleaning tasks that can reduce allergens in your home.

Invest in an air purifier – Air purifiers are a great way to remove dust from your home. Good quality air purifiers will clean your air of small dust particles which are barely visible to the naked eye.

Vacuum – Furnishings like sofas, drapes, and carpets can trap a lot of dust. Opting for hard flooring is a great way to reduce dust on your floors, but if changing your flooring is not an option, make a habit of vacuuming twice a week.

Reduce clutter – When your home is cluttered, there are more surfaces for dust to collect. Consider decluttering your home by donating or selling items that you have not used in over 6 months.

Replace your cushions – Sofa cushions that are older than 7 years can harbor dust mites, mold, and mild dew. If you have neglected your sofa by not vacuuming or cleaning up spills, replacing your cushions and reupholstering your sofa is a good investment.

Seal gaps – Gaps in your ceiling and under your doors can bring in dust. Consider using an under-door dust stopper and seal the gaps in your ceiling.

Doormat – Placing a good quality doormat near all outdoor entrances and following a “no shoes in the house” policy, will reduce the levels of dust and dirt in your home.
