5 Most Efficient Ways to Reduce Allergens in Your home

1. Invest in air purifier

An air purifier with a HEPA filter can effectively remove allergens from the air. The Coway Airmega is a good candidate as it covers large areas and effectively reduces the amount of airborne dust in as little as 10 minutes.

2. Encase your mattresses and pillows in allergy-proof covers

While dust mites are virtually everywhere and hard to get rid of, encasing your pillows, mattress, and box springs in allergy-proof covers creates a physical protective barrier against them.

This set of mattress encasement and pillow protectors will block dust mites, protect your bedding, and make your bed more comfortable.

3. Use a vacuum cleaner fitted with a HEPA filter

While vacuuming seems like a good idea to reduce allergens indoors, it can have the opposite effect by spreading the particles throughout the home.

To effectively remove allergens from carpets and upholstery, use a vacuum cleaner mounted with a HEPA filter. This model ensures that the allergen are locked once vacuumed until safely disposed of.

4. Monitor the humidity indoors to keep mold and dust mites at bay

The ideal humidity levels indoors should be between 30 and 50%. When the levels rise above 60%, the conditions become ideal for mold and dust mites proliferation. Use a dehumidifier to make sure you stay in the healthy, comfort humidity zone in your home.

5. Keep the clutter at a minimum

Remove items that collect dust, such as knickknacks, tabletop ornaments, books, and magazines. Store children's toys, games and stuffed animals away from the dust. Plastic boxes are a great way to keep your home organized and clean.
