How to make your house allergy-proof.

It is said that a person who reacts quickly to dust or gas is allergic, and if the person reacts, there must be a pathogen nearby. Here are the main places where allergens are found and avoided.


Bed linen and bedding: Wash blankets, sheets and pillowcases in warm water at least once a week. Flooring: Remove carpet and consider using hardwood. Curtains and drapes: Use synthetic fiber curtains or plain curtains. Windows: Close windows and turn on the air conditioner during pollen season. Furniture: Choose easy-care chairs, bedside tables and dressers made of metal, leather, wood or plastic. Clutter: Remove items that collect dust. Pets: Bathing your pet at least once a week can help reduce the risk of pet allergies.

Living room.

Furniture: Replace soft armchairs and sofas with furniture made of wood, plastic, leather and metal. Window: Removes mold from windows. If you live in a cold environment, use double-glazed windows.

Windows: foundation and stairs. Also check for damage, correct the cause of the leak and repair the damage. Air quality: use a dehumidifier to reduce humidity. Storage: Store collectibles and clothing in plastic containers. Tumble dryer: Dry moisture outside.

Entire house.
