How to Vanquish Allergens From Your Home

Avoid and Get Rid of Mold in Your Property

Mold is an annoying little fungus that, when left to its own devices, can wreak havoc on your property and even on your health. This is because breathing in its spores can cause respiratory problems and allergies. To ensure your home isn't troubled by mold growth, you first need to prevent it: clean the place thoroughly on a regular basis and keep everything dry. If you find mold development in your home, vinegar and bleach can help you get rid of it. If the problem is too big, call a professional team promptly to deal with it effectively.

Vacuum Your Carpeted Floors Regularly

Your carpeted floors can keep a great variety of allergens in their materials. From dust and dirt to mold spores and tiny organisms, if you don't clean your carpeting regularly, you can expect an increase in the allergy cases at home. To vacuum your carpeted floors properly, you need to use a clean vacuum with the right attachments. Then, you should vacuum the floor slowly and in different directions to lift as much dirt from them at possible. You should also move furniture around to reach those often forgotten spots. Do this around twice a week. At least once a year, have a professional team, such as Walker & Frick Construction Co. in Richmond, VA give your flooring a good deep clean.

Employ Green Cleaning Products

Keeping your home squeaky clean is one of the best ways to ensure you'll keep allergies at bay. Still, if you're using cleaning products, you should know that some of them contain chemicals and toxins that can actually aggravate the situation. That's why, next time you're at the supermarket, make an effort to look for greener cleaning products with natural or plant-based ingredients.

Have Houseplants Around

If you suffer from pollen allergies, you may think houseplants are your worst enemy. Some plants, however, such as the gerbera daisies, bamboo palms, and peace lilies, can actually clean the air in your property. Just make sure to clean them often with wipes to remove dust.

Take Care of Your Pet

You may love your pets. Unfortunately, if you don't take proper care of them, they too can increase the allergic reactions in your household. For example, you need to keep your pets (especially the furry ones) clean.  It's also important to set some boundaries: don't let them on the couch or bed, or anywhere else they could leave their fur behind. As mentioned above, you should also make it a point to vacuum your floors on a regular basis.

Whether your home has been afflicted by mold, a fire, smoke, water, or other mishap, call Walker & Frick Construction Co. at 804 282 128 to deal. with the situation effectively.

Wash Your Bedding and Upholstery Often

Dust mites, dirt, pet fur, and other allergens can also be present in your bedding and upholstery, which is why you should also care for them if you want to prevent allergy outbreaks in your home. It's recommended that you wash your bedding on a weekly basis to that end. As for upholstery, you can give them a good clean around once a month.

Replace the Air Filters

Last but not least, you need to replace the air filters. The heating and cooling systems in your home are what makes the air move around, and if they are dirty, the indoor air quality in your home will be seriously affected. If needed, you could invest in an air purifier with an HEPA filter to keep the air in your house pure and allergens-free.
