With warmer weather just around the corner, now’s the time to think about spring cleaning. If you are one of the two million Australians with asthma, this is an especially important time of the year.
Over the winter months dust, dirt and allergens such as mould can build up in your home, triggering allergy symptoms and asthma in susceptible people. An effective way to manage this is by spring cleaning, which will reduce triggers in the home.
People with asthma can benefit from a spring clean more than most. A thorough once-over of your home helps control both indoor and seasonal allergens.
With more than eight in 10 people suffering from asthma also being affected by allergies, a clean and healthy environment is an important part of reducing asthma and allergy triggers.
You won’t completely eliminate allergens, but there are many ways to reduce exposure for you and your family. Those with asthma and allergies also needed to consider their cleaning products, technique and ventilation to ensure that any spring cleaning doesn’t contribute to their asthma and allergy symptoms.
You don’t want to just move dust around and send allergens and irritating cleaning chemicals into the air – this could have an adverse effect.
There are many ways to help eliminate allergens in the home this spring. Use a damp cloth to dust hard surfaces; change or thoroughly clean filters in vacuums, air-conditioners and air purifiers; vacuum drapes and upholstery; and importantly, remove mould.”
Top tips for spring cleaning to help keep your allergies and asthma under control:
Allergen avoidance doesn’t cure asthma, but by reducing your exposure to allergen triggers you may improve your asthma control and help make symptoms easier to manage.
A healthy environment at home is so essential, and how clean your air conditioner is a crucial factor in the environment of your home. If you are sensitive to dust, mould, or pollen, make sure to have clean and safe air to breathe at home.
