Reduce Allergens with Junk King Sonoma

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

Female holding tissue to face in one hand and a cat held high in the other handAllergens 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.

There are several ways to clean during spring and Covid-19. One sure way we want to suggest is to find areas in the home that are frequently touched and sanitize regularly . These include but not limited to: door knobs, light switches, tables and chairs. To eliminate germs and bacteria you can also fill a handheld home-use spray bottle with 70% alcohol and spray thoroughly throughout the entire home at set intervals.

All About Bed Bugs and Mattress Disposal

All About Bed Bugs and Mattress Disposal Junk-King SonomaWhether you’re talking about the Twilight series or shows like the Walking Dead, bloodsuckers are in right now. Where bloodsuckers might not be as welcome, though, is on your mattress. That’s because bed bugs pose problems for millions of Americans, yet they’re only the size of an apple seed.

What are Bed Bugs? 

The scary thing about bed bugs is that they oftentimes feed on hosts – i.e., potentially you and me – without being detected right away. In fact, bed bugs are one of the few parasitic insects out there today that exclusively feed on blood.

The reason that bed bugs prefer calling mattresses home is that bed bugs like warm environments with plenty of shade. Bud bugs are for the most part nocturnal insects that do their dirty work late at night. This is why detecting bed bugs (and proper mattress disposal) are so important.

Detecting bed bugs, though, might be harder than it first seems. Bed bugs are tiny, brown insects that have relatively flat bodies.

This next detail might be more at home in a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! but when bed bugs feed on their hosts their bodies swell from brown and flat to red and round. And you wonder why homeowners and hotel goers worry about bed bugs!

Bed bugs have rightfully earned the name “pests,” although they’re not communicators of any diseases. Another common misconception about bed bugs is that they’re only found in hovels and dirtier homes; bed bugs, in fact, can be found in very clean hotels and spotless homes alike because these pests feed on blood and aren’t too picky about your home’s upkeep or feng shui.

How Bed Bugs Survive 

How do bed bugs get into your home and how do they survive once there? Bed bugs often come into homes through clothing, luggage or furniture. I guess this all gives new meaning to the term riding on your coattails.

Bed bugs can sneak into your home like spies and lie low once they’re in. This is because bed bugs can skitter from one place to another and remain undetected since their flat bodies can wiggle through very tiny crevices. Bed bugs could, indeed, be hiding in your bed frame or box springs in huge numbers.

As bed bugs normally only go on the move during the night, detecting them can be a challenge. That said, you’ll definitely want to consider safe, professional mattress disposal if bed bugs have ensconced themselves in your mattress. Remember that bed bugs like warm, dark places and often bide their time before wreaking havoc.

Bed Bugs and Vampires? 

In many ways bed bugs are similar to the vampires that we watch on the silver screen. Both bed bugs and vampires are bloodsuckers, nocturnal and leave a visible mark on the skin. The only difference might be that once bitten by a bed bug, you won’t (we hope) actually turn into one.

Bed bugs, though, will bite you while you’re sleeping. Through a long beak, bed bugs do their dirty work before moving on to a new host. In the meantime, you might notice a welt on your skin that could get more inflamed a few days in. These pests often bite areas exposed while sleeping, which makes your ankles and arms especially vulnerable to bites.

The only surefire way of getting rid of bed bugs is professional mattress disposal. Contact Junk King to have friendly junk removal professionals come to your home and remove your infected mattress. Quotes are free and booking online today can save you thirty dollars.
