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.

"Will-Air spent the time to thoroughly check out both systems. We were so pleased with the thoroughness of their preventative maintenance that we asked them to give us a quote for a large ductwork project. Again we were pleased with the overall knowledge, communication, and details included in their written quote and verbal explanation."
