  • Remove or Wash Bedding and Soft Furnishings
  • It is recommended to wash bedding weekly and
    other soft furnishings monthly at 130 to 140
    degrees F to kill the mites. 
  • Avoid wool blankets and down quilts which can be
    troublesome for many asthma and allergy sufferers.

  • Dust and Clean Regularly
  • You can dust once or twice a week with a wet
    cloth to avoid spreading mites over the room. Be
    sure to wipe down all surfaces meticulously and
    then wash the cloth at a high heat or throw it

  • Choose Green Cleaning Products
  • According to a study, conventional cleaning
    products such as bleach, glass cleaner,
    detergents and air fresheners  can have a
    short-term respiratory effects among female
    cleaners with asthma.
  • So its important to look after health by
    choosing green cleaning products, safe,
    hypo-allergenic and plant-based ingredients See
    this video. Here are the safe and diy cleaning

  • Vacuum
  • Smartly
  • Vacuum twice a week focusing on the areas that
    accumulate most dust like near entryways and
    under the bed.
  • Invest in a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter,
    which captures tiny particles rather than sending
    them back into the air.
  • Wear a mask when cleaning or ask someone without
    allergies to clean for you!
  •  Consider regular steam cleaning of rugs and
  • Dont forget to vacuum and steam upholstery,
    rugs, fabrics, drapes and other soft furnishings
    regularly too.

  • Implement Natural Pest Control
  • Deter cockroaches and rodents, store all food in
    tightly sealed containers and remove food waste
    from the house regularly. 
  • Spray a solution of cayenne pepper
    powder, garlic, onion and water when you see
  • Leave bay leaves around the area where roaches
    frequent the scent should ensure they scuttle
    out of your home.
  • Diatomaceous earth (DE) is yet another safe and

    mites. treat your carpets and rugs to a regular
    dusting of DE to kill mites.

  • Pet Allergy Measures
  • Ensure where you keep your pet will be easy to
    clean and has little furniture and carpeting.
  • Ideally, the bedrooms should be absolutely
    off-limits to the dog or cat because the
    particles that carry animal allergens are so
    small that they can seep right into your
    comforters, sheets, and pillow covers.
  • Wash your covers, comforters, and sheets twice a
    week in hot water for the best results
  • Household items such as carpeting, upholstered
    furniture, drapes, and even stuffed animals can
    be a reservoir for all sorts of nasty pet
    allergens. So keep clean these items.
  • Utilize a specialized filter to clear pet
    allergens from the air.

  • Remove items that collect dust

    ornaments, knick-knacks and books, and storing
    kids toys and stuffed animals in plastic bins.

  • Close your Windows
  • During pollen season, make sure to close your
    windows and doors.
  • If you or your family members are out in times of
    high pollen (the morning or early afternoon),
    its a great idea to change clothing and shower
    upon returning to the house, keeping
    contamination to a minimum.

  • Get the right temperature
  • Find the the perfect temperature and humidity
    level. This is key to allergy control.
  • Keep your house nice and dry switch on your
    dehumidifier if needed.

  • Remove mold and mildew
  • Fix leaks, run ventilation fans, open windows if
    safe to do so, and switch on the dehumidifier. If
    you do see mold, employ the powers of natural
    fungicides like tea tree oil, ethanol
    and vinegar to curb growth.
  • Make sure to dry off surfaces that collect
    standing water, and make sure it's well
  • Replace broken tiles and recaulk sinks and
    tubs every few years to discourage mold growth
    behind walls.

  • Use Air filter or purifier
  • You can use an air purifier with a HEPA filter,
    which removes 90 of allergens, and clean the
    filters regularly.
