3 Allergens Living In Your Home

Household allergensAre you tired of sneezing your brains out, or rubbing your eyes because they won’t stop itching? Check out these common household allergens that could be the source of your problem.

Dust mites – These allergens are a common trigger of asthma and allergy symptoms. Dust mites can be found throughout the house in warm, humid environments like bedding, furniture and carpeting. We suggest washing your bedding often, getting rid of old furniture and vacuuming and washing your carpet occasionally.

Pet allergens – According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI),“contrary to popular opinion, there are no “hypoallergenic” breeds of dogs or cats. That is because people are not allergic to an animal’s hair, but to an allergen found in the saliva, dander (dead skin flakes) or urine of an animal with fur.” Keeping a pet outsides, or visiting a allergist to determine if you are allergic to animals before getting a pet is a good way to avoid these allergens.

Indoor molds – This particular allergy along with mildew are often found in damp places, typically the basement, bathroom or a place where a leak has occurred. You can get rid of and prevent mold by wiping your surfaces with water and a little bleach. Then allow the area to dry completely.

Now that you know three popular allergens that may be in your home, you’ll be able to live a happier life. Happy Cleaning!
