Prevent Dust Mites
Dust mites are not visible to the naked eye, but they are still hazardous to humans because of the allergies people develop to dust mite droppings. The best way to combat dust mites is to clean regularly. Whether it is easy for you to clean daily, every other day or weekly, it is important to add it to your schedule. When you clean, dust first, vacuum, then mop so that everything gets cleaned well. A good rule is to start at the top of the room and work your way down to the carpets. A HEPA filter in your vacuum will help collect dust mites and droppings. Mattresses are also important when cleaning dust mites. You can use a vacuum on the mattress or even have them steam cleaned. Then, wash all of the bed linens.
Preventing mold will increase indoor air quality in your home. Your home mustn’t be too humid. Also, make sure that water doesn’t build up anywhere in your home. Ventilation is also important to ensure that mold doesn’t grow. Check your bathrooms regularly to ensure mold isn’t growing in damp areas, and eliminate it as soon as possible if you find it. If you love plants, it is important to ensure you have low-water plants so that mold isn’t growing on the soil of the plant. Using exhaust fans will help keep everything dry in the bathrooms and kitchen.
