Allergens in Your Home

Allergens in Your Home
Living with allergies is often a lifelong challenge. Yet, too often we focus on addressing the symptoms of our allergy problems without considering conditions in our homes that are making us unwell.
  • Your indoor air should be healthier than the air outside.
  • Most of us spend at least a third of our lives in our bedrooms.  So it really pays to think about how to keep your bedroom air healthy.
  • Are your bedrooms cluttered?  This is one of the most important aspects of a healthy home.  A simple clean bedroom is easy to keep clean and dust free.  A restfull eight hours sleep on cleaner bedrooms will give your lungs, immune syste, and entire respiratory tract time to build up resistance and recover from allergens and environmental stressors.  Keep your bedroom clean and simple. Think Zen!
  • Are some rooms damp or musty?  Dampness can lead to rampant mold growth and indoor air problems.
  • Indoor plants are beautiful.  Some houseplants have even been shown to improve indoor air quality. But be careful with your plant choices…. some plants grown in moist soils that can become a breeding ground for indoor mold growth. Large leafy plants tend to be quite dusty.

Be careful to maintain your fish tanks!  We have tested homes and found that a poorly maintained fish tanks was an indoor reservoir of mold growth.
