Make your house free from allergy - I

Few tips as below that I learnt from internet on how to make our house free from any allergies. It is worth to have a read on them.

*Keep windows closed and use air conditioning if you're allergic to pollen. Don't use fans since they can stir up dust.

*Filter the air. Cover air conditioning vents with cheesecloth to filter pollen and use high efficiency particulate air filters. Clean air filters frequently and air ducts at least once a year.

*Keep the humidity in your house below 50% to prevent mold growth.

*If you have pets, consider keeping them outside or perhaps ask someone else to take care of them.

*Avoid areas where molds may collect, including basements, garages, crawl spaces, barns and compost heaps. Have someone else clean these areas often.

*Install dehumidifiers in basements and other areas of the house where molds tend to collect. Clean these devices every week.

*Air out damp clothes and shoes (in the house) before storing.
