Dust can be caused by an allergic reaction from tiny particles in the air that come from things like carpet or upholstery fabrics as well as dander from pets such as cats and dogs, household mites and mould spores among other sources. The symptoms of dust allergy include sneezing, coughing and itchy eyes – not to mention asthma-like reactions in some cases.
Dust may prevent you to enjoy your home which you have worked hard on maintaining. They might also stop you outside on nice days too!
Home Improvements to Avoid Dust Allergy
Dust allergies are a common problem for many people and finding ways to reduce the amount of dust in your home can be essential.
In this post Mark Johnson, leading clean air expert from ByPurify will tell about some easy steps you can take to create a less dusty environment at home.
1. Remove All Unnecessary Clutter
Dust is the smallest particle that can trigger an allergic reaction in a person with allergies. Dusts are so small you cannot see or feel them without first building up into mounds, which we all know will only lead to more dust being created if left unchecked on your bookshelves and furniture. The best way of dealing this tiny problem is to minimize the clutter at home by keeping surfaces clean through daily maintenance tasks.
2. Purify Your Air
Dust is one of the most common and dangerous household hazards- it gets into crevices, collects on floors, settles in vents. But there are ways to avoid this! Opening windows can allow fresh air inside your home if outside airflow is available. Investing in a high-quality air purifier will filter out any particles from indoor air to avoid dust allergy and other harmful allergens that may be floating around in your home or business place.
3. Replace Your Air Conditioning & Heating Filters
Your air conditioner and heater are powerful vacuums that suck up dust from your entire house. The filters on these units catch many particles, which would otherwise circulate around the space or invade other rooms if they were free to go wherever they wanted. Replace them every three months to avoid getting an allergy, as dusty clogged-up filters can collect allergens in our home.
4. Wash Your Bedding
Regularly washing the sheets on your bed not only makes them clean again so that they’re comfortable for sleeping in but also helps prevent dust mites from building up too much by removing their food source dust! It’s important to keep these microscopic creatures away because if left unchecked, they’ll continue living there and could even give you or someone else serious breathing problems.
5. Clean Your Couch Cushions
Dust mites thrive in dark, damp corners of your home. That’s why couches with pillows are often more infested than beds as they provide a lot of nooks for these pesky allergens to hide out in and grow. Luckily, there is an easy fix: when you vacuum or use warm water on delicate fabrics that have been impacted by the dust mite allergen take care not to miss any hidden spots where this critter might be hiding.
6. Keep Your Environment Clean
Dust mites are the little creatures that cause all your allergies. Dust builds up quickly and is tracked around to other parts of our house, so it’s important for us not only to clean where dust may live but also in those areas you don’t generally notice until build-up has occurred, or allergy symptoms have begun manifesting themselves. Keep yourself healthy by staying on top of your home cleaning schedule.
Dust is a common household allergy that can cause sneezing, itchiness in the eyes and nose, coughing or wheezing. No matter what your dust allergies are to whether it’s animal dander from pets like cats and dogs or other types of irritants such as mould spores, following these simple tips will help keep your home as clean and healthy as possible.
