5 Tips to Reduce Allergens in the Home

Allergens create many problems, especially for people with asthma and other lung conditions. They are often present on surfaces and especially in the air throughout the home. Reducing the allergens in the home will help everyone breathe a little easier.

In the dusty Idaho environment, regular cleaning to remove dust and debris off of surfaces is a necessity particularly in the summer but removing them from the air is especially important even in the winter. Did you know there are air filters that can be fitted to the furnace to reduce allergens in the air? Diamond Heating and Cooling can install a Micro Power Guard Air Cleaner and drastically improve the quality of air circulating in the home.

Here are a few other tips to help reduce the number of allergens around the house:

  • Keep the house clean by washing surfaces that allergens cling to. Bedding, and pillows should be washed in hot water or dry cleaned to kill mites and get rid of other debris.
  • Vacuuming at least once a week can get rid of a majority of allergens in the carpet. Use a HEPA filter in the vacuum to eliminate even more particles. HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air and this type of filter traps the small particles that other filters allow to recirculate back into the air.
  • During the summer months,using the air conditioner instead of opening doors and windows can reduce the amount of allergens. It can also reduce dust mites by controlling the humidity.
  • Reducing the moisture in the bathroom and kitchen decreases with chance of mold spores forming.
  • Dehumidifiers can also assist in decreasing the amount of mold and dust mites.
