As winter approaches, you may find yourself experiencing seasonal allergies at an increase. The EPA found that 90% of our time is spent indoors, exposed to indoor dust particles, pet dander, and other toxins. This statistic is probably even higher now that the Coronavirus is keeping us all indoors more. Consistent routine cleaning can help lower airborne allergens and improve your indoor air quality. Here are some of our cleaning tips to fight seasonal allergies!
Wash Your Sheets More Often
Did you know that your sheets gather dust mites? Dust mites are a major contributor of seasonal allergies, but they can be reduced by washing your bedding more often. The detergent in your washer and heat in your dryer kill dust on the spot and can help control your seasonal allergies.
Use Remedi Pure Ethyl Rubbing Alcohol to Clean Your Shower
Your shower may develop mold spores that can contribute to symptoms of seasonal allergies including sneezing, coughing, and congestion. Breathing in mold can create an inflammatory response that makes it more difficult to breathe. Now that we’re spending more time indoors, be sure to clean your shower and other areas of high moisture (i.e., kitchen sink, bathroom counter, toilet, etc.) to reduce and prevent the growth of mold indoors.
Get a New Vacuum
If you have a vacuum the just pours dust back into the air, it’s worth the investment to get a new, effective vacuum cleaner. Be sure to vacuum once a week to reduce dust, pet dander, and other allergens that develop on surfaces. Vacuum hardwood floors, carpeting, couches, and other surfaces that you notice gather dust, for best results.
Change Your Furnace Filter
Furnace filters can gather dust that ultimately just circulates through the air. These particles can irritate and inflame seasonal allergies. Do your best to switch out your current furnace filter with a new one about every three to four months. Having one already stocked and on standby can make the process easier.
Wash Your Hands Frequently
Last but not least, wash your hands! Avoid touching dusty surfaces or pets with dander without washing your hands thoroughly. Our Remedi Pure foaming hand soap cuts through dirt, dust, and grime to give you a redefined clean that is gentle on your hands.
