3 Ways to Reduce Allergens in Your Home

Sep 8, 2020

While outdoor air quality might seem like the most important part of controlling your allergies, indoor allergens are a huge problem and can lead to discomfort, especially when we are all spending more time at home! Thankfully, even small steps to reduce allergens in your home can make a big impact and keep you and your family comfortable.

What Causes Indoor Allergens?

Before you can reduce allergens in your home, you have to understand what causes them in the first place. Some of the most common sources include:

  • Pets
  • Soft upholstered furniture
  • Stuffed toys
  • Wall-to-wall carpeting
  • Damp areas (kitchen, bathroom, basement)
  • Bedding
  • Mattresses without allergy covers
  • Pillows and bedding that can’t be washed in hot water
  • Indoor plants

Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning is one of the best ways to reduce allergens in your home, because it gets dust, pollen, spores and allergens that you cannot easily reach on your own. A professional duct cleaning from Will Air will dramatically improve the air quality inside of your home and help reduce the chance of mold growth. Get the most from your HVAC system and cut down on allergens with regular duct cleanings.

Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming regularly with a high-quality vacuum helps to reduce allergens in your home. A low-quality or old vacuum might just put more dust into the air, so check yours to ensure that it is allergy-friendly. If you do have allergies, always wear a mask when doing housework to reduce inhaling dust and spores.

Avoid Mold

All mold is not dangerous, but it can be hazardous to people sensitive to indoor allergens. To avoid mold growth, you should work to reduce moisture around the kitchen, bathroom, basement and any other areas with water. Use dehumidifiers in particularly humid areas and use a humidity monitor to keep an eye on humidity levels throughout your home. Try to avoid having too many house plants in one area of the home, and always fix leaks and dripping faucets as quickly as possible.

"We had a wonderful experience working with Rob Will & Will-Air. We called a few HVAC companies and chose to work with Will-Air because they were so friendly and helpful on the phone. They scheduled an appointment for that afternoon and offered to call 45 minutes before arriving and even bring a plug-in AC unit in case the repair would take two days. Rob Will was honest when diagnosing the issue with the air conditioning and very personable! We will definitely call him back for any future HVAC needs and recommend this company to our friends!"

Awesome. I called and they came out the same day to put a short term fix on my AC unit. They then installed a new unit a few days later. Quick and reasonably priced. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend them!

"Rob was extremely knowledgeable and anticipated the problem based on the call, picked up the part needed prior to arrival at our home so that he was completely prepared to fix our heater."
