living with allergies
Allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States, causing a constant sniffle or sneeze when face to face with the allergen (or allergens) that set them off. For some, allergies are seasonal and mild, requiring nothing more than getting extra tissue or taking a decongestant occasionally. For many, the allergy is caused by their home environment. Your home is your castle, except when you’re allergic to it. A recent nationwide survey found that over half of all Americans test positive for at least some allergens, and many of these are indoor allergies such as dust, mold, and pet dander.
So how can you allergy-proof your home to make it a refuge, not a source of sneezes? The single most important thing you can do for dust mite allergies is to put hypoallergenic casings on your beds, mattresses, box springs, and especially the pillows.
You can also reduce the presence of dust mites in your beds by using only washable bedding. Many people may pile their beds with fancy quilts, throw pillows, and wool blankets that aren’t washed regularly.
This applies to stuffed animals in children’s bedrooms as well. Instead of piling stacks and stacks of cuddly toys on the bed, limit the furry friends to one or two favorites that are washable. (Take a look at the label -- many stuffed animals are marked “surface clean only.”) Your child’s linens and stuffed animals should be washed in hot water at least once a week.
Clean carpets regularly with a quality vacuum cleaner and clean the vacuum often. The bedroom is especially a good place for a HEPA air filter to clean bedroom air.
