Tips for Allergy-Proofing Your House

For an unhygienic household, allergy season is year-round, since bacteria essentially hold a permanent residence just as much as the residents. You need to be able to clean your house in a way that it’s free of most allergens. The first step is to prevent any chances that might make your family members’ allergy act up.

Start with the bedroom, since your family spends and average of six to eight hours a day here. Buy hypo-allergenic mattresses and pillows to replace your old ones. Be sure to wash the sheets often to keep them from becoming a marketplace of different types of harmful bacteria and viruses. You should also have your bedroom checked for bedbugs and dust mites while you’re at it.

If you can, opt for hardwood floors without carpets, since these things attract a whole lot of microorganisms and diseases that might be detrimental to your family’s health. If you don’t want to get rid of your trusty carpet, vacuum it often and have it deep cleaned every few months.

Doormats aren’t just for decorative purposes; they make excellent buffer points between your home and the ground outside. Teach your family to wipe their shoes properly before stepping on your floor or carpet so as to keep them from letting in all sorts of germs throughout your house.
