Suffering from Spring Allergies? Here are Some Cleaning Tips To Help You Breathe Easier

Spring allergies can make a beautiful day seem like a nightmare. With so much pollen in the air, it’s easy to bring the outdoor allergens into your home. Knowing how to create an allergy-free zone makes all the difference.

Here are a few spring cleaning tips that will help you take deep breaths while enjoying the smell of a squeaky-clean home.

Start at the Top

When you start cleaning, it’s always a good idea to start from the top. Make sure to get the dust from the curtains, fans, windowsills, lamps, and other areas to make sure it will trickle down. This way, you will be able to pick up all the dust and other allergens from the floor as you continue cleaning.

Clean Your Air

Most people think by opening the windows while spring cleaning, they’re letting in “fresh” air. The truth is, you may be adding to the allergens in your home. Change the air filter in your HVAC unit, and consider getting an air purifier to keep the air clean.

Vacuum Regularly

If you have allergies, vacuuming on a regular basis is a must. Doing this twice a week can help keep the air clean. Using a HEPA filter can help.

Dust Regularly

Dusting with a microfiber cloth can help lift dust up and away. Doing this on a weekly basis will help the air stay clean and reduce allergens.

Clean Your Supplies

All the cleaning supplies you use should go through a cleaning, too! From the vacuum to every sponge, everything needs to be cleaned or replaced on a frequent basis.

Wash Everything

Launder your bedsheets and rugs on a weekly basis to make sure you get rid of the allergens. Rugs can trap dirt and dust, bringing in allergens from outside. Shake them out, vacuum them or get them professionally cleaned.

Tackle Mold

Mold can seriously contribute to allergies and cause breathing issues. If you don’t have an exhaust fan in the bathroom, it may be time to get one installed. Clean the bathroom thoroughly and wipe down the floors and walls after showering. Leave the door open to make sure the room is aired out.

Clean and Vacuum the Mattress

Vacuuming the mattress is key because dust mites are alive and well. Once you vacuum the mattress, use a steam cleaner to deep clean it. It would be good to add covers on your pillows and box spring to keep the allergens away.

Purge

Things accumulate quickly throughout the year. Now is the time to start purging things you don’t need, and then vacuum and dust your closets.

These tips will help you get your home allergy-free to help you breathe easier this spring.
