Spring is here, and most people want to provide much needed love and care to their homes and at the same time get rid of unhealthy and annoying allergens.
It is important to know that sneezing, coughing, wheezing and difficulties in breathing are often caused by allergens. Allergens like dirt, dust, dust mites, pollen and other small particles collect anywhere in the house. They can be found on floors, walls, beds, couches, books, shelves, racks and other surfaces. A buildup of allergens in the house is dangerous as it triggers allergic reactions such as rhinitis and asthma.
The good news is that there is a solution and we at Junk King are here to help. We encourage you to stay safe and give your home a thorough cleaning this spring. It’s the key to a safe and healthy environment and also ensures the house is thoroughly aired, dusted, and washed free from the exposure of allergens.
Allergens Commonly Found in Homes
Allergens found in homes, schools and work spaces are referred to as indoor allergens. The key to reducing exposure to indoor allergens and the potential threat they pose highly depend upon knowing and understanding each type.
The most common of them all is dust mites. These are very tiny insects, not visible to the naked eye and can only be seen under microscope. They usually live on surfaces they can firmly be attached to and these include; beddings, carpets, chair seats and other fabric covers. They thrive in humid conditions and even though they can’t be totally eradicated, you can certainly lessen their numbers by spring cleaning.
Pet allergens are found in the saliva, fur and skin of infected pets. Homeowners with pets sometimes find this allergen throughout the entire home, especially if they don’t conduct regular cleaning. If you don’t have a pet but find yourself affected by this allergen you might have visited a friend who does, as transmission is possible via clothing.
Pest allergens thrive in the excrement, saliva and urine of pests such as, mice and cockroaches. It is important to properly dispose of leftover food in an effort to minimize the intrusion of cockroaches, mice and consequently pest allergens.
Mold allergens. Mold grows on wet surfaces and can be found in either indoor or outdoor areas. In most cases clothing and shoes can be carriers of outdoor mold and often contribute to it’s presence in the home. Mold spores triggers allergic reactions and therefore direct contact and the inhalation of mold should be avoided.
