The Annual Allergy Battle: Combat Allergy Season with Cleanliness

We might be a little biased, but we’ve found that a clean home can go a long way in the battle against allergies. All of the dust and pollen from the outside can latch onto clothing and shoes and be dragged into the home, making your house a haven for allergens. Regular dusting and vacuuming can be a great help in providing some relief. And the best way to do this is by hiring the professionals. In fact, there are plenty of excellent reasons to hire a professional cleaning service for your Thompsontown home. For one thing, our Dorundo’s Cleaning Service professionals have the right tools and knowledge to thoroughly clean your home. And, at Dorundo’s we only use cleaning products that are safe for children and pets. When you give us a call, be sure to let us know you are looking to target specific problem areas and disclose any allergy issues. Until then, here are a few great things you can do to combat allergens in the home.

Clutter around your home can wreak havoc on allergies. For example, stuffed animals on and around beds can collect dust that can trigger allergies and asthma. Take as many of them off the bed as possible and wash or freeze them every week to kill dust mites.

Keep Cool in Warm Weather

Did you know that hot, humid houses can become breeding grounds for dust mites and mold? Maintain a humidity level at around 30-50% and inside temperature at around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  And, make sure to clean or replace the small particle filters in central heating or cooling systems.

Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum

Vacuuming, especially by a professional cleaning service can eliminate a lot of dust. Vacuuming certain areas such as carpeting and furniture can help control allergens in the home.

Clean the Crevices

Many areas of the home become out-of-sight, out-of-mind when it comes to cleaning. When combating allergies it is important to reach spots that aren’t usually on your regular cleaning to-do list such as mattresses, upholstery, garages and attics. At Dorundo’s we provide a specialized cleaning service for these exact areas as their very nature can make them difficult to clean.

Do Away with Dust

The best way to control indoor allergies is by getting rid of dust. Dust mites are the most common trigger of asthma and allergy symptoms within the home. Some do-it-yourself dusting can actually make things worse by kicking up allergen particles. So, be sure to use a damp or treated cloth when dusting and wear a mask, or better yet; leave it to the professionals. A professional cleaning service like Dorundo’s can provide a variety of solutions to help eliminate dust.
