Itchy eyes, swollen face, sneezing, sniffling and itchy, red eyes are all common symptoms of allergies, and they can make your life miserable. Dust, pollen and mould are just a few things that can trigger your allergy. Most of us believe that our homes are free of allergens, whereas the sad truth is that allergens are lurking in the least expected places and can cause or make you more prone to allergies.
The common triggers of allergies at your home and ways to combat it
When was the last time you washed or dry cleaned your blanket? Don’t remember? You should do it more often. Dust mites are usually found in mattresses, duvets, pillows and blankets in your bedroom. This is because they feed on your skin cells, and thrive in a warm and cosy environment. They are the most common allergens present in homes.
You can get rid of dust mites by using hypoallergenic casings on your linen and bedding and washing your bedding regularly. You can also get an air purifier for your home and make sure you’re breathing in clean air.
