Five Tips to Avoid Allergies this Spring
Let’s face it. Springtime can be beautiful in most areas, with green grass, flowers blooming, birds chirping, and the sun shining. Unfortunately, spring can also bring airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites, mold, and animal dander.
Allergies affect nearly one hundred million people in the United States alone and can cause headaches, sneezing, runny noses, and watery, itchy, and swollen eyes. Even worse, they can lead to trouble breathing and tightness in your chest. They can make life generally miserable and sometimes lead to life-threatening illnesses for those with weakened immune systems.
Let’s check five great tips to help avoid spring allergies:
Tip #1: Experts recommend starting with your bedroom.
Cleanliness can make a big difference in the quality of your sleep. Keeping all bedrooms as clean as possible is critical as cleaning the floors and flat surfaces weekly. Casabella’s spin mop is ideal for quick and easy cleanup for hardwood or tile floors. It features an oversized stainless-steel basket with a handy built-in agitator that spins out excess water, making it a breeze to clean all types of hard flooring with a clean water mop. The machine-washable mop is made of microfiber for powerful pickup. Casabella’s mop system features a soap dispenser to add extra cleaning power. It pivots 360 degrees to reach into those tight spaces and underneath furniture. And even filled with water, it’s easy to maneuver due to its design with two handles.
Tip #2: Close your doors and windows during the peak pollen season.
While it might seem counterintuitive to not bring fresh air into your home, pesky pollen is best left outside. Pollen spores are tiny, dry, and lightweight and are easily carried inside by the wind. Ragweed and pollen counts are usually higher in the morning and early evening.
Change your heating and air conditioning filters regularly to ensure optimum efficiency.
Tip #3: If you have yard work to do, it’s wise to wear a facemask.
And while we’ve all grown weary of them, masks can and do make a huge difference in protecting you from allergens in your yard. When you’re ready to come in, leave your shoes outside and wash your clothes in hot water with an extra rinse cycle. Spend a few minutes showering quickly to clean off any spores that may want to come inside with you.
Tip #4: Keep on dusting!
Using Casabella’s Multi Angle Extendable Microfiber Duster, it takes just a minute to keep the surface areas in your home clean and free of allergy-producing dust. Don’t forget to dust those often-overlooked places, like your ceiling fan blades. Using Casabella’s extendable duster, you don’t even need a ladder! It has five lockable positions to clean at every angle. The microfiber duster traps dust rather than spreading it around in the air. Recently, microfiber has been proven superior to old-fashioned lambswool dusters. The plush microfiber in the Casabella duster provides even better coverage when dusting.
Tip #5: When doing laundry, use a dryer to dry your clothes instead of hanging them outside on a line.
This reduces the risk of getting pollen and mold spores attached to your sheets, blankets, and pillowcases. The filter in your dryer also acts as a magnet for pet hair, and the heat in the dryer also helps sanitize them for better cleaning. If you like the fresh smell of the outdoors, you can use one of the many fragrance beads available in the detergent aisle.
