6 Ways to Reduce the Allergens in Your Home

If someone in your family is allergic to pet dander, pollen, mold spores, or dust, then you are battling the health of your family on a daily basis. Whether the allergy is severe and causes breathing issues or it is mild and makes them sneeze, you want to do everything in your power to reduce the allergens in your home and improve your indoor air quality. Here are the first steps you should take:

Control the Temperature

If dust or mold is the allergen that haunts your family, then the temperature may be to blame. According to the Mayo Clinic, heat and humidity make these substances thrive. To combat them, keep your home between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit and at no more than a 50 percent humidity level.

Change the Air Filter Regularly

If your family’s allergies are severe, then you may be one of the exceptions to the change-every-three-months rule. Instead, you should try to change your filter once per month. Our filter subscription service makes it easy to remember when the change is due, and even our MERV 8 option traps the most common allergy offenders.
