Allergy season can be miserable for family members with sensitive lungs. Knowing how to properly reduce allergens in your Dover, Delaware, home can make all the difference in keeping your home comfortable. Here are three of the most-forgotten methods for reducing your home’s allergen levels.

Clean Upholstery

Most homeowners regularly clean their linens, and this is certainly an important step in freeing your home from allergens. However, many fabric items get overlooked, and these can easily collect pet dander or dust, adding to home allergens. Items like throw pillows, curtains, and rugs are great places for allergy-causing debris to hide. Wash these on a semi-regular basis to remove any buildup and freshen up your home. Most of these items can be washed in your home washer and dryer, but items like rugs may require specialized cleaning.

New Air Filter

Replacing your air filter every few months is vital for a clean air supply and reduces the strain on your HVAC system that comes with trying to pull air through a clogged filter. When picking out a new filter, many homeowners forget to look at the HEPA rating. This rating gives you an idea of how good the filter is at removing debris and allergens from the air. A higher rating means it removes more types of allergens from the air.

Extra Ventilation

Ventilation is most often used in bathrooms and kitchens where moisture can build up and trigger allergy symptoms. Running ventilation won’t do much, however, if you don’t run it for long enough. You should run your ventilator for at least 30 minutes after introducing moist air into your home, especially in closed off rooms like bathrooms and laundry rooms. Kitchens don’t need as long if they’re more open to the environment, which allows moisture to disperse instead of accumulating and making a breeding ground for various allergens.
