I’ve been sniffling and sneezing like crazy all spring long. My allergies usually aren’t this bad, but unfortunately they’ve been pretty rough this year. Especially the last couple of weeks. I’ve been diffusing my allergy oils and popping my allergy medication like it’s going out of style, but nothing seems to be helping. My eyes are still itchy and watery and mthe sniffles in my nose just aren’t going away! The only thing I haven’t been doing is trying to keep our house cleaner and reduce those sniffle-inducing allergens that like to hide right under our nose. Quite literally actually!
one | Clean Your Air Filters: Did you know you are supposed to change the air filter in your furnace every 4-6 weeks during the heating season and once per month during the cooling season? It can be tough to remember, but you can add an alert right on the calendar in your cell phone to remind you. Simple as that and it’ll make a huge difference in the quality of the air in your home.
two | Dust Protectors for your Mattress: Let’s be real. You don’t even want to know how much dust and dirt accumulates on your mattress over the years. Just the thought makes my skin crawl. So to avoid all that dust and dirt accumulation and those scary little dust mite critters, you need to make sure you’re covering your mattress with a dust protector. It goes on just like a fitted sheet and the piece of mind is absolutely priceless.
three | Sweep, Vacuum, and Cleanse Your Floors: If there’s one place dust, hair and dirt accumulates, it’s on your floors. You step on it and pick up all that dust and dirt overtime you walk through your house. Just think about that for a minute. You literally pick-up and transfer that passively all over your house without even thinking. Yuck! That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re vacuuming, sweeping and using Bona Free & Simple on your hardwood floors. Not only does Bona Free & Simple cleanser help care for your and protect hardwood floors, it also rids your hardwood floors of those sneeze-inducing allergens!
Keeping the house clean and making sure you’re dusting frequently is absolutely huge when it comes to controlling your allergies in your home. Dust is the enemy and boy can it accumulate quickly. Make sure you’re sticking to a cleaning routine and keeping your house as clean as possible. This will help to keep your sniffles at bay for sure!
