Spring is in the air and so are the allergens, so it’s a great time to look at the air quality in your home. Believe it or not, pollen, mold and dust can make a big difference in your energy level and how you feel about the warming weather. Today we’re going to talk about allergy-proofing your Breckenridge home to keep the allergens out, and keep you enjoying spring time.
Vacuuming and dusting are great ways to achieve allergen elimination. It may sound simple, but between your vacuum, dust cloth and mop, you can make 90 percent of your home’s dust disappear.
Also, if your vacuum doesn’t have a HEPA filter, you might want to invest in an upgrade. These filters are capable of trapping microscopic particles of dirt and dust. You’ll certainly breathe easier with a solid round of dust removal!
The filters for your heater and air conditioner are designed to capture all of the pesky, indoor allergens that often cause so much misery. However, they need to be maintained. For this reason, when you replace older filters and clean out the vents, you’re doing your health a huge favor. These simple fixes can get rid of pollutants and make sure they don’t continue to circulate throughout your property.
Since clean air is always the goal, you might consider getting a purifier. Whether you want a tabletop size or a whole-home solution, these appliances are able to circulate air and capture dust at the same time. The result is cleaner indoor air, and fewer allergy symptoms.
If you’ve tried all of the above options and your home still causes allergy flare-ups, it might be time to redecorate. Consider removing heavy drapery for easy-to-clean curtains. Take out the carpet and install hardwood floors instead.
When you figure out ways to make your home as dust-free as possible, you just might have the chance to live without allergy symptoms in the spring and throughout the year. Then nothing can get in the way of you appreciating your gorgeous Breckenridge home!
