When you or family members are constantly sniffling and sneezing, chances are, there are allergens present in your home.
Allergens, are usually harmless airborne substances. However for susceptible persons, allergens can cause allergies, asthma symptoms, and in some cases, pneumonia. These airborne substances can be found in furniture, pets, toys, damp areas, beddings, and air conditioners in your home. In some, if not most cases, the air outside is cleaner than the air inside your home.
Make sure that you and your family are breathing clean indoor air. Minimize indoor allergens with these 3 ways:
- Clean your home regularly
Clean your home regularly from top to bottom. Sweep, vacuum, and mop your home regularly, especially if you have small children and pets. You can vacuum carpets, rugs, floors, and furniture at least once a week to remove dust, dirt and pet dander in your home. If you are using a bag-less vacuum, make sure that you clean the filter every time you use it to ensure that it suctions dust efficiently.
- Add potted plants in your living spaces
You can add indoor plants in some areas in your home. This is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing an air filtration system, or a new air conditioner, for that matter.
Certain indoor plants such as orchids, ferns, palms, or lilies help purify or filter the air and get rid of toxins. There are indoor plants that are even more powerful in reducing harmful toxins — aloe vera, areca palm, and baby rubber plant.
- Choose an air conditioning professional
Over time and without regular cleaning, your air conditioner gets clogged with pollutants or toxins. This could lead to a number of issues such as water leaking or a foul odour coming from your air conditioner.
Before you consider DIY, think again. Handling the issue by yourself could do more damage to your air conditioner, and may even void its warranty. You could even find yourself spending more and not saving any $$$ as you initially intended.
