Are you affected by environmental allergies? With the environmental and dust allergies, it can be very difficult for you to move out of your house. Even being at home can trigger your allergy when mold, pollen, dander, or dust mites make their abode in your home. Although cleaning can aggravate your allergy, letting the allergens pile up will not help you either. If you do not enjoy sneezing fits and itching eyes, keeping your home perfectly clean is the only solution to keep your allergy at bay. But, do you know how to control allergy symptoms while housecleaning? Let’s learn 6 ways to control allergy symptoms with home cleaning.

Pets fur triggers the allergy.

The pets like cats and dogs are loved by many people. They become your family members and you cannot think of your life without them. Indeed pets are a great company but not at the cost of your health. Pet’s dander is one thing that is the most harmful thing that aggravates the allergy problem. When dander particles are inhaled, it can increase your allergy attacks. So, to control allergy symptoms it is best to keep the house free of pets.

A Cleaning Schedule to Control Allergy Symptoms

The people who are not affected by allergies might think of taking a break from cleaning once or twice a week. But, if you suffer from allergies it is vital to make sure that your house is not the allergy trigger zone. Only maintaining a regular cleaning schedule can control allergy symptoms and keep you healthy. It is important to keep cleaning your home throughout the week so that the dust is not piled up and it doesn’t trigger your allergic reactions while cleaning.

Launder Bedding Once a Week to Control Allergy Symptoms

Change bed linens weekly to keep away from allergy.

Your bedding might seem to be perfectly clean and harmless. But, the fact is they’re covered by pet and human hair, pollen, dust, and grime which may not be visible with a naked eye. Your bed linens must be washed once each week with fragrance-free gentle detergent and if you have furry friends at home, twice a week washing is vital. The comforter and the duvet must be vacuumed twice a week and the mattress covers, once monthly. Clean bedding can control allergy symptoms at home.

Bathroom Moisture Must be Minimum to Control Allergy Symptoms
