What Is Home Warranty


🏡🌷🌳Ways to reduce allergens in the home 🌳🌷🏡

It’s allergy season. And whether seasonal allergies affect you or not, you don’t want those suckers in your home. Whether it’s pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold, reducing allergens in the home simply creates a healthier living environment. Here are some effective strategies to mitigate:

Keep It Clean Regular cleaning is essential to reduce allergen buildup. Dusting, vacuuming, changing and washing bedding (recommended is 1x/week), and keeping curtains and blinds clean to prevent dust accumulation. Check out Armadillo’s posts for homeowners’ tips and tricks for non-toxic cleaning. 

Control Humidity Levels High humidity can encourage mold growth and dust mites. Aim to keep indoor humidity between 30-50%.

   Use a Dehumidifier Place dehumidifiers in damp areas such as basements and bathrooms.

   Ventilate Properly Ensure proper ventilation in kitchens and bathrooms by using exhaust fans. Open windows to allow fresh air circulation when weather permits.

   Fix Leaks Repair any leaks in roofs, pipes, or walls to prevent moisture buildup.

   Reduce Pet Allergens Pet dander is a super common allergen. If you have pets, take these steps to minimize allergens.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

   Use Air Purifiers High-quality air purifiers with HEPA filters get the job done in removing airborne allergens.

   Change HVAC Filters Replace HVAC filters regularly, preferably with HEPA filters, to trap allergens.

   No smoking allowed

Control Pollen Entry Pollen can easily enter your home and settle on surfaces.

   Keep Windows Closed During high pollen seasons, keep windows and doors closed.

   Use Door Mats Place door mats outside and inside each entrance to reduce pollen tracked into the house.

   Change Clothes Change clothes and shower after spending time outdoors to remove pollen.

Eliminate Mold Mold spores are potent allergens that thrive in damp environments.

   Clean Mold-Prone Areas Regularly clean areas prone to mold, such as bathrooms, basements, and kitchens, using mold-killing solutions.

   Use Mold-Resistant Products Opt for mold-resistant paint and materials in areas with high moisture levels.

   Remove Carpeting Consider replacing carpets with hard flooring in areas susceptible to moisture.

Minimize Clutter Keep surfaces clear and declutter regularly to reduce dust traps. Store items in closed containers and regularly clean storage areas.
