The average human spends approximately 1/3 of their time in bed and that doesn’t include the time spent if someone has a weak immune system and is often sick. A good night’s rest is beneficial to anyone and knowing your mattress isn’t contributing to allergy suffering, or making you more ill when you find yourself fighting off a virus and need additional sleep, helps in that venture.
Natural Seasonal Allergy Treatments
It might surprise you on what is contributing to your allergies. Everyone, especially allergy sufferers, know the pet dander is a high-list offender, dust mites and on some level the cockroach. Though you do your best to contain the things that promote your allergies to soar, what may not enter your thoughts is your bed. As mentioned before, you spend a great deal of time in your bed throughout your life. Being consistently near the allergy threats, like the fact your body shedding a good portion of old skin, floating dust attaching to your mattress, if you have a cockroach problem, and of course the pet dander if you choose to deal with the con of a loyal companion. Your mattress is the elusive variable contributing to your allergies.
DM Carpet Cleaning has prepared a few tips to reduce allergies in your bedroom.
– Cut the cockroach population down. No matter where you might live, cockroaches always seem to pop up. There are a few things you can do to make your bedroom (and your home in general) less inviting.Seal up all cracks and crevices, especially on walls that share the exterior of your home. Maintain pipes and faucets to reduce leaks. Don’t leave wet towels, or clothes on the floor (roaches love water). Make sure all food is tightly stored. Be sure to keep the dishes from stacking up. Having a regularly scheduled exterminator to spray down your home is an exceptional way to serve roaches with their eviction notice.
– If you do own a pet that you’re even a little bit allergic to, it might be wise to give them new sleeping quarters, and allow your bedroom to be pet-free.
– Keep curtains clean, and floors vacuumed. Don’t allow a heavy layer of dust to accumulate on your curtains or blinds. Floors should be vacuumed daily to keep down on dust, dirt and other debris tracked in.
– Control the air. Dust mites and mold prefer warm, damp areas. When the weather is warm, use the A/C unit. When the weather is chilly, use the heat. Dust mites don’t breed in temperatures below 77 degrees.
– If you live in humid climates, be sure to invest in a dehumidifier to keep the humidity controlled between 30%-50%.
– Dust mites are the number one enemy to allergy and asthma sufferers. It’s essential to kick those little uninvited guests out of your bed. They often live in bedding and mattresses.
– Invest in dust mite-proof covers pillows, comforters, mattresses, and box springs.
– Wash your bedding a minimum of every other week to keep things in control.
