Yes it’s a pain, but your home can actually harbor more allergens than the great outdoors. The reason is because home furnishings, carpets, and pillow covers create a lot of dust build-up, as well closed windows can produce condensation which creates mold and mildew.
In fact research suggests that most people spend over 60 percent of there days indoors which causes a greater risk of allergen exposure.
Cleaning Tips to Reduce Allergens:
Start by getting rid of dust build-up on carpets, drawers, bedding’s, light bulbs, tv’s or other electronics as well as clothing dryers, furnace air filters, and ceiling fans.
Invest in a good vacuum or duster because they can get rid of a lot of allergens, as many now use high-quality HEPA filters. In addition, do one dusting with a wet cloth every month, but try to dust at least once every 10 days.
Mold and Mildew can also be very hazardous to one’s health. Consistent cleaning of bathroom tiles, underneath kitchen sinks, and especially window seals will help get rid of the vast majority of mold and mildew ‘hot spots’.
Most large retail chains carry effective mold and mildew removers for window seals, bathrooms, and kitchens. It is recommended to clean the window seals once every 3 weeks, and bathrooms/kitchen sinks once every 2 weeks, all year round.

Heat Your Home At The Optimal Temperature.
Dust Mites build up with higher temperatures in your home. So try to keep your home temperature between 65 – 69 degrees helps kill off dust mite build up.

Simple rule, the more stressed you are the more your body releases stress hormones, the more hormones flowing in the body the higher the rate of allergic response.
When you are not able to release that stress, these hormones sit in the body and lead to higher allergic response rates.
Weekly exercise, yoga, meditation, and even talking to someone, are all things that can help reduce stress. These can in-turn lower allergic reactions. We can’t always can control when stressful situations arise, but we can control how we manage it.
