Allergies are the bane of many a child’s existence along with their parents. They’re miserable, can make kids feel like they’re sick, and make it harder for kids to enjoy the outdoors during nice weather. Medications are available to help alleviate the conditions, but their side effects are sometimes worse than the allergies themselves. Parents get rid of one set of problems only to introduce another set. It’s enough to drive everyone mad! Get around these issues by taking steps to improve your air quality, reduce the amount of medications needed, and prevent dust from landing in the home in the first place.
The last one is sometimes easier said than done, as dust gets generated all the time. Take a proactive stance by putting dust covers on mattresses, making it a point to vacuum on a schedule, use stand-alone air filters, and get the ducts for the HVAC system cleaned out. The less dust you have flying around the home, the better. You’ll find that you have an easier time of keeping the home free from allergens once you get started on reducing dust. Everyone benefits from the cleaning habits as they take in less of the irritants that cause their reactions.
