They can cause a number of problems - those pesky allergens. Often, they’re hiding and hard to find, but they still cause uncomfortable symptoms like coughing, sneezing, etc. Which are never fun. Of course, these kinds of symptoms will vary in severity depending on the individual - but they are undoubtedly uncomfortable nonetheless. So, where are these pesky allergens hiding?
Curtains and Drapes
Many people don’t think of cleaning their window treatments because nobody sits on them, touches them often, or has accidents on them. However, they are often a big target to collect dust, pet dander, and other allergens you don’t want hanging around the house.
As one of the most neglected areas in the home, air ducts collect all sorts of grime - even mold in some cases. Unfortunately, one of the worst things about neglected air ducts is that the allergens are then spread all over the home through the output of air.
Just as with curtains and drapes, the fabric of upholstered furniture tends to attract dust, dirt, and other particles. However, upholstered furniture is also cleaned more often as they experience much more traffic than window treatments.
How to Continually Keep These Areas Clean
The best thing you can do around the home to keep each of these areas clean and minimize any allergens from affecting you in your own house is to implement a regular cleaning schedule. Paying a little extra attention to each of these places will help to eliminate those additional allergens, but deep cleaning will really kill the bacteria and rid your home of pesky grime.
