4 Tips To Effectively Clean Your Home

As most of us know, both children and adults suffer from allergies during high pollen seasons, but not many of us know that pollen isn’t the only factor that causes an allergic reaction.

As much as I love the Do It Yourself ways to clean and allergen proof your home, mine… gets cleaned regularly by a local home cleaning company. For those of you in the Hampton Roads area, you can reach them at housecleaningvabeach.com. I initially trusted them with my home cleaning needs approximately 7 years ago, and haven’t had any regrets so far.

So, without any further ado, the 7 DIY tips to allergen proof your home:

1. Bedroom is key.

First and most important I feel is the area or room of your home where you spend most of your time. Yes, your bedroom!
On average, a person sleep between 6 and 8 hours per day… That add up to 49 hours each week. Now sit down and really let that sink in… Some of us don’t even work that much.

So, all I’m trying to say is start with the bedroom!

2. Floor comes first.

Air Quality

One important thing about taking care of the air in your home is correct care of you utilities.

Some people forget to check on these and keep them under maintenance after getting these. Replacing filters on your air conditioning units is one of those important things. It is vital for you to replace these filters in order to keep your air conditioning system running efficiently. You need to keep the air in your home clean and without particles so that the air quality is in good condition for the residents in the home.

If you do not replace these air conditioning filters, the air will not be filtered properly and these dust particles will be stuck in the air. If these dust particles stay in the air, the residents of the home will breath them in and this can affect human health, damaging the lungs. These filters need to be replaced every three months on average to keep the air quality in your home the best it can be. (more…)
