HOW TO: Create an Allergy-Free Bedroom this Spring
We’ve transitioned into spring and the beauty of the blossoms is springing up all around us. Unfortunately for some, spring can also mark the beginning of allergy season, which can mean headaches, itchy eyes and seemingly endless sneezing.
They say that ‘home is where the heart is’ and the bedroom is the heart of the home; your haven and sanctuary after a long day.
This season, avoid the symptoms of spring and keep your sanctuary allergy free with these helpful tips.
Dust, pollen, mould spores and other allergens that float around in the air are common features in any home and are a major trigger for allergic reactions during the springtime.
Installing an air purifier in your home will work to filter and purify the air around you, removing the contaminants and clearing the way for you to breathe easily, reducing the risk of allergic reactions.
Moisture in the air is one of the most favourable conditions for Allergens and other airborne particles to spread and contaminate your environment.
Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air, reducing the risk of mould particles from spreading and helping to improve the overall quality of the air that you’re breathing.
50% is the recommended level of humidity for your home with dehumidifiers working to maintain the balance.
