Often, allergies are most severe when outdoors; however, allergens find their way inside, too. Now is a great time of year to make a list and tackle indoor projects in your home that can reduce the effects of allergens on your kids. Here are a few ways to get started:
- Change air filters
- Clean carpets
- Wash baseboards that have collected dirt, dust, and other debris
- Clean window treatments, dusting blinds or vacuuming drapes
- Dust areas that you may miss in regular cleanings, such as ceiling fans
- Clean windows and window screens, especially if you are opening windows to let the spring breeze inside
If your child is sensitive to dust year-round, these are good tips for regular cleaning to keep everyone feeling their best!
