How to Have an Allergy-Free Home. If you or anyone in your family suffers from
allergies, there are some simple ways to make your home more hospitable. You will need Two HEPA air filters An allergy
mattress cover An allergy boxspring cover Two allergy pillow cases A high-filtration
vacuum bag A vacuum exhaust filter Food containers with vacuum seal lids Mildew-killing cleanser
Baking soda Water A hypo-allergenic vacuum (optional) and a house humidifier (optional). Step 1. Use high-efficiency particulate air, or HEPA,
filters to capture airborne particles such as pollen. Use one filter in your bedroom and the other
in the family room or other common space. HEPA filters are rated for different-sized
rooms; buy one that’s big enough for the room you’re using it in. Step 2. Dust mites can cause allergies – keep them
out of your bed by washing pillows, sheets, blankets, and comforters at least every two
weeks. Cover your pillows, mattress, and box spring
in washable allergy covers for additional protection. Step 3. Load your vacuum cleaner with a high-filtration
bag and an exhaust filter and vacuum all carpeted areas regularly. Invest in a hypo-allergenic vacuum sweeper
that sucks up almost all the allergens in a carpeted area. Step 4. To prevent mold, put all food items in vacuum-sealed
storage containers and wipe down the refrigerator interior with baking soda and water. Wash shower curtains at least once a week
to curb mildew and wipe down shower walls after a bath or shower. In the kitchen and bathroom, use a mildew-killing
cleanser on the sink and countertops. If you use a central air-conditioning system,
install a humidifier to control the moisture level in the house. Step 5. Keep your windows closed during the spring
and summer months to lock out pollen and other allergens. Keep curtains, window sills, and frames clean
to prevent mold from growing. Doesn’t it feel good to breathe easy? Did you know Dust mites eat the skin cells
shed by humans.

  1. If you have allergies in your home and you are using a vacuum, you are just making the problem worse. You need a rainbow cleaner that uses water as it's filter. NEVER A VACUUM!
