Do You Have Allergies? Make Sure You Clean This At Home!

About 20% of people suffer from allergy at least once in their lifetime. The indoor air quality could be playing a major role in triggering these allergies.

Allergens lurk deep inside your carpet, sofa, shelves or curtains. These things basically play a role of filter for your home. They store pollutants which get carried inside the house with wind, shoes or other things. When you don’t take measures to keep the house clean, they are no longer able to keep the air filtered.

If you have noticed wheezing, runny nose or itchy eyes lately, consider it a clear indication for allergens at your home. Over time, these allergens can cause problems such as asthma or bronchitis.

Clean Your Upholstery & Carpets

How often do you clean your chairs, sofas or carpets?

Just like other surfaces, dust and dirt find its way onto the upholstery and carpets and go deeper into the fibres over time, if proper cleaning is not carried out.

Make sure to vacuum at least twice or thrice a week thoroughly, especially if you have pets or children. Get professional cleaning service at least twice a year. This will not only ensure better air quality, but optimal health as well—in addition to the longevity of your carpets and area rugs.

Blinds, Curtains or Drapes

Closest to the outdoor spaces, blinds, curtains or drapes are most vulnerable to collecting dust, dirt and other pollutants. If proper cleaning is not carried out, the curtains may even accumulate spider webs and other pests. These are main sources for several allergies.

In order to avoid any severe health hazard, it is ideal to vacuum them at least once a week and get them properly washed every two months.

Mop or Vacuum the Floor

Often people assume the hard flooring do not accumulate much dirt or dust. It’s a mistake!

Regular cleaning of hard flooring is necessary to keep the dust stirring back into the air. Vacuuming instead of broom keeps the dust particle from spreading around and settling back on the floor. If you add mopping in your regular regime, it will ensure that the dust left behind from vacuuming is removed permanently.

Grout

Grout is porous, which makes is highly susceptible to collecting moisture and dust over time. If you live in a humid area, it becomes a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Try to leave your bathroom or kitchen doors open after mopping or after a shower. This will remove the humidity from the floors and walls.

Also restore the look with sealants or hire professional grout service to help maintain the cleaning and life of the tiles.
