Allergy Proof Your Home

A home should be comfortable and make you feel safe. But there are many things you can be allergic too around the house form dust mites to animal dander if you have pets. Itching and sneezing is no way to live, so besides taking medication, there are things you can do to keep up with your health. For example, you can look for filters with a MERV, which is the minimum efficiency reporting value, between and 12. These will remove more particles from the air. Another piece of advice is to keep humidity in your house lower than 50% because dust mites and mold thrive in moisture.

The local Salt Lake City movers learned that allergens collect in places such as carpet, curtains, blinds, even upholstered couches and chairs. So choosing decor and furniture that is made of wood or leather is better, unless you regularly wash your carpet and other furnishings. You can also try to find products that will "denature or deactivate" animal dander and dust mites. Of course, no carpet works better for people who are prone to allergies.

When it comes to your bedroom, where you spend at least 6 hours a night in, you want to make sure it's as clean as can be. Use a damp rag to wipe down the bed frame and other areas where dust can collect such as a night table. Every week you should wash your sheets in hot water. Try to avoid wool blankets or foam-rubber cushions, pillows and mattresses. If you can, you should encase comforter in an allergen-impermeable material. Avoid cushion headboards, flowing bed skirts or upholstered furniture in your bedroom. Also, shoes, boxes and other knick-knacks shouldn't be in the same area where you sleep.
