If you suffer from any kind of allergy, you are probably already aware of the triggers. Allergies are caused by a hypersensitivity of the immune system to otherwise innocuous substances in the environment such as pollen, plastics and certain foods for example. People develop allergies to all manner of things. It is not always obvious how or why an allergy has developed but once you know the triggers for it, you can try to avoid those triggers. Regularly cleaning your house can help relieve allergy symptoms by getting rid of the triggers. Try incorporating the following five tips into your cleaning routine in order to keep your allergy under control. * Clean your house regularly. By doing a little bit of cleaning every day you will stay on top of things and keep potential allergens at bay. * Don’t use chemical-based air fresheners or polishes. Chemicals can quickly irritate an allergy even if they are not the actual trigger for the allergy. * Declutter on a regular basis. Clutter attracts dust and debris that can upset or irritate your allergy even if it’s not in the same room. * Use a vacuum that has a HEPA filter, which traps small particles that escape and recirculate back into the air with non-filtered vacuums. * Always use a mask whilst cleaning in order to limit your exposure to the dust and debris that will inevitably start circulating. Suffering with an allergy can be annoying at the best of times but never more so than when you at home. That is why it is important to always keep a clean home. Cleaning can be a reasonably unpleasant experience that temporarily upsets your allergy but, in the long-term, by staying on top of things and cleaning your home regularly, it can become a safe haven where your exposure to allergens are minimized.
