Keeping a Healthy Home

Air, allergies and achoos

Did you know that tens of millions of Americans suffer from asthma and allergies? Many of the most common allergy-causing culprits are found right in and around your home, including mold, mildew, pet dander, dust mites, cockroaches and pollen. Fortunately, a few simple steps can take the punch away from these pesky allergens.

  • Control pests: Make sure crumbs are swept up and food is put away promptly after eating. Take out the trash frequently. Fix any water leaks. Kill dust mites by washing bedding in hot water.
  • Vacuum often: That goes for floors, carpets and upholstery. A vacuum cleaner with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is the best choice.
  • Keep your air filters clean to reduce allergens like dust and mold spores. Check the filter for buildup at least once a month. Replace or clean them as needed, based on manufacturer recommendations.
  • Air it out: Mold and mildew love humidity. Prevent them from gaining a foothold by turning on ventilation fans or opening windows in damp bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Finally, a word about flooring: Washable floors are easier to keep allergy-free; wall-to-wall carpets, more difficult. If at all possible, choose bare floors or rugs instead of wall-to-wall carpeting.
