Allergen Areas in Your Home

Four Hotspots

Can You DIY Upholstery Cleaning?

For some people, it’s the sneeziest time of the year. For others, the battle with allergies lasts all year long. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are many areas of your home that harbor allergens, which can impact your quality of life. Do you know what they are so you can focus your cleaning efforts? Read on to find out.

Allergen Areas in Your Home

  1. Bedding: Your bed may be the coziest place in your home, but it’s also a prime location for allergens to accumulate. Dust mites, pet dander, and pollen can all cling to your sheets, pillowcases, and comforter. To keep these allergens at bay, you should wash your bedding once a week in hot water. And be sure to take a shower before getting under the covers if you’ve spent time outside.
  2. Carpeting: Carpeting is a common culprit for harboring allergens, such as dust mites, pet dander, and pollen brought inside on your shoes. Vacuuming your carpeting once a week can help remove some of these allergens, but it’s also important to deep clean your carpets every six months to a year.
  3. Curtains: Your curtains may look pretty, but they could also be contributing to your allergy symptoms. Like bedding and carpeting, curtains can accumulate dust mites and other allergens. Check out the manufacturer’s recommendations to see how you can clean them once a month. Also, consider leaving the windows shut so pollen doesn’t come in on a breeze and cling to the fabric.
  4. Couches: Your favorite spot on the couch may also be a hotbed for allergens. Indoor and outdoor allergy aggravators can easily get trapped in the fabric of your couch. Research if you can clean it yourself, and consider having it professionally cleaned once a year.
