Per the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, there are several best practices you can adopt to manage allergens in your home:
- Keep it clean. Regularly cleaning your home will go far in reducing allergens such as dust, dust mites and pet dander.
- Redo your floors. Replacing rugs and carpets with wood or vinyl floorings will help minimize dust and other allergens that become embedded in fabric fibers.
- Groom your furry friends. Regularly bathing and brushing your pets will help reduce the amount of dander and pet hair in your home.
- Go on mold patrol. Be on the lookout for any leaks or moisture in your home as this can cause mold to thrive.
Simple tips like these can create a happier and healthier home.
