tips on home allergy management, reducing the allergens in your home and methods for relief

Last week we had some incredibly mild temps. After many months of winter, it was nice to open those windows and feel the fresh {not frigid} air again. It really made me realize just how much we are quarantined during the winter months.

For this reason, we make our homes as comfortable, happy, and healthy as possible. Yet, what if allergens find your home just as comfortable as you do? It’s not ideal to spend so much time surrounded by something that literally makes you sick. 

The most common allergens at this time of year are the household kind. They come in the form of dust, mold, mites and even pet dander. Place these allergens in a closed environment with recycled air, and you might have all sorts of issues on your hands. 

Luckily, there are some simple solutions when it comes to home allergy management.While no home can be completely allergen-free, there are steps to take in order to reduce the allergens in your home so you can be more comfortable and breathe easier. 


Tips for Home Allergy Management

1. Clean your home regularly – Make sure you do plenty of dusting both in the obvious places yet also those areas that are easily forgotten like under the fridge and behind home electronics. Also, ensure you are picking up the dust and not just flying it into the air, as it’ll just settle right back down again. Ensure wet and warm places like the shower walls are cleaned regularly as well, to prevent mold. 

2. Do some laundry – I’m not talking the clothing here, but your bedding and drapes. Plan on washing bedding and pillows weekly and drapes and other fabrics at least once a month. It’s an added chore, but one that’ll rid of mites and dust. Doing this makes a big difference, especially the air quality when you are sleeping. 

3. Vacuum – regularly vacuum your floors, yet don’t forget under and behind furniture and even vacuum your mattresses too. When’s the last time you vacuumed your mattress? Yikes!

4. Invest in a good Air Purifier – We got an air purifier a few years ago and it’s helped the air quality in our home more than I had imagined. Not only will the air quality in the home improve greatly, it also removes dust particles in the air and absorbs odours.

5. Replace Filters – Furnace filters reduce airborne allergens in your home by attracting and capturing dust, pollen, and lint. Yet you have to replace those filters regularly! 

6. Reach for Allergy Relief Medication – Sometimes home allergies get the best of you, no matter how much cleaning you do and how many preventative measures you make. In these instances, you’ll need to manage allergy symptoms with help.

For your own comfort, have REACTINE® ready. It can start to work in 20 minutes and lasts for a full 24 hours. REACTINE® relieves allergic symptoms like itchy and watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing, nasal congestion and stuffiness, and itchy nose and throat, and itchy skin.
