Allergy Cleaners: A Wholesome Way To Clean Your Home
Allergy cleaners can protect from the allergens that trigger asthma attacks. Substances that cause an allergic reaction that may lead into an asthma attack include dust mites, pollen, molds and pet dander. Minimizing exposure to these substances is one of the principal ways that people avoid asthma attacks.
Allergy cleaners should remove allergens from your home. Or at the very least, they should neutralize them so they do not cause harm.
In addition to cleaning, the right allergy cleaner can boost your asthma management plan. Once allergens are out of your home, you and your family can breathe freely. These simple techniques reduce the presence of any irritants in your home.
- Living rooms – The living room is often the center of the home and can carry many hidden allergens. You will discover a lot of spots for dust to accumulate in a living room: lampshades, curtains, window blinds, knick knacks, wood flooring and carpets. Use allergy control products to clean your carpet and upholstered furnishings regularly to neutralize dust mite and pet allergen.
- Kitchen – If your kitchen is heavily used by your family, then you should thoroughly clean it to remove allergens such as dust and pet dander. If your pet stays indoors, it probably spends a lot of time in the kitchen. Treat the flooring with allergy control products for dust mites and pet dander to eliminate or neutralize the allergen.
- Bathrooms – Since moisture tends to linger in bathroom, mold and mildew is a problem for many homes. If you want to prevent them from lingering in your bathrooms, apply a mold retardant product to places such as tubs and showers. You can also use air purifiers to capture the spores that lead to this problem.
- Bedroom – If you haven’t heard, bed linen are regarded as carriers for dust mites and other bugs that can cause asthma attacks. Mattresses, pillows, and box springs hold millions of dust mites that feed on human skin cells. Bed sheets, mattress pads, and comforters should be covered to protect you from these allergens. Any bedding that is not in zippered covers should be washed with an allergen laundry additive to neutralize dust mites.
- Basement – Basements can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Watch for signs of mold and mildew. A musty smell can be an indicator that there is mold is growing. Use an air cleaner or room dehumidifier to clean the air and remove moisture from the basement. You can also use vent filtration covers to reduce dust or mold that is pulled through your heating system going into the rest of your home.

A simple solution is to keep windows and doors closed while you use an air purifier. Clean air is very beneficial for allergy and asthma sufferers. Otherwise, a window filter can be used to decrease pollen, dust, and other allergens. If you can, limit the rooms that your pet uses and use pet allergen control to remove pet dander.
