Green Cleaning Tips to Reduce Home Allergens

Allergens can be everywhere – especially in your home. Indoor allergens such as mold, mildew, and dust are not only caused by the changing season but also because of the substances present in your home.  While natural treatments and medication are effective ways to combat the symptoms and effects of these indoor allergens, the best way to eliminate them is by keeping a clean and healthy environment at home.

Here are green cleaning tips from Webb Air Conditioning to lessen allergens in your home.

  • Dust regularly

Dusting is a simple way to get rid of dirt, airborne particles and other allergy-causing elements inside your abode. Make sure to dust off all areas and surfaces including the furniture, upholstery, and appliances. You may use a wet cloth, or an antibacterial dusting spray formulated tea tree oil. Do this at least twice a week or as often as desired.

  • Invest in a smart vacuum

Vacuum your home at least two times a week and see a great difference. Although vacuuming is as easy as one, two, three, you should know some tricks that would make it more effective. First, start vacuuming in areas near entryways, under the bed, and raised appliances. Next, invest in a vacuum with HEPA filters to capture 99% of airborne contaminants indoors. Also, do not forget to wear a mask while doing the task to avoid getting allergies.

  • Groom your pets

Along with your cute furry pets are allergens that may cause illness in your family over time. But with regular bath and proper grooming, you can reduce pet allergens at home by 45%. See to it that you have a separate area where you will feed and bathe them every day. It is essential to keep them clean at all times, so you and your family are safe from allergies and illnesses caused by your pets.

  • Use green cleaning products

Some cleaning materials are made from harsh chemicals that can trigger allergens and viruses. If someone in your home is sensitive to chemicals like those found in cleaning products, it would be best to switch to environment-friendly cleaning materials. Make sure that you pick those with a green star label to ensure that they are approved safe to use.
