Reducing allergens in your home

If there is one member of your family who has an allergic condition then you need to know the best methods by which you can reduce the occurrence of these reactions. When it comes to food allergies and drug allergies prevention is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is avoid the particular food or drug that gives you the reaction and the problem it solves.

But there are other allergic conditions which can be much trickier to handle and deal with. Some such conditions are allergic rhinitis and skin conditions like eczema. Which is much more difficult to predict because they have a multifactorial origin and the environment plays a huge role with the development of the reaction. So let’s take a look at how you can try to reduce the occurrence of these attacks.

Keeping your house dust free

This is one of the most important ways to reduce the occurrence of episodes of allergic rhinitis. Because these people tend to start sneezing the moment something tickles their nose. And this occurs more often than not because of dust that they are inhaling. It tends to irritate the nasal mucosa, leading to inflammation and as a result an allergic reaction. So maintaining a clean home environment is also of utmost importance. You need to have a good cleaning regime and make sure the surfaces are dust free, especially the sofas, beds, pillows, and carpets. And you have to make sure the vents of the split systems in your air conditioning are also cleaned often. Otherwise however much you clean the house the circulating air will always carry dust particles.

Or you can opt for an air-conditioning installation that has a filtration system. Because these systems are very good at filtering all the sir that passes through them trapping all the dust particles and all the allergens that are causing your trouble, but you should keep in mind that these filters also get clogged with all the dirt they’re trapping after some time and therefore you need to have them cleaned on a regular basis. Otherwise, the filter will fail to function and you will continue to breathe air containing dust and debris. And you might continue to complain that the filtering system has in no way helped you improve your health condition.

So you need to be aware of all the possible options that are available to you if you want to stop yourself or one of your loved family members from suffering from these conditions. Which can be very frustrating because nobody wants to wake up first thing in the morning and start a bout of sneezing right?
