Spring and fall can sometimes be rough for those who have allergies. Many areas experience high pollen counts for grass, mold, and flower pollen, which can wreck havoc on the sinuses. This leaves many sneezing and itching for days to weeks at a time.
Outdoor allergens are not the only possible source of flare ups for sufferers. Those who have pets, or do not dust frequently may notice that their symptoms sometimes get worse at home unless they clean far more often.
Dust Can Build Up On Furniture And Surfaces
Dust is a major irritant for many who have allergies. It can build up quickly, sometimes in as little as a few days and leads to sneezing and watery eyes if it is not cleaned up well enough.
Some may find that dusting once a week does help, but others may need to dust every single day. There are some who may find that even this is not enough to alleviate their symptoms, prompting them to explore other options.
One option is to look for possible sources for the dust, such as old filters for heating and cooling. Another possible source is the carpeting itself, as well as the drapes, as dust can accumulate and be kicked up anytime the carpet is walked on or the drapes opened.
If this is the case, the best option is to start cleaning the carpets and drapes more often. The best way to do this is to look for a good cleaner, such as a Rexair Rainbow vacuum, that can trap dust with its water based cleaning system.
Dander, Hair, And Fur Can Aggravate Allergies
A Rainbow has another distinct advantage when it comes to relieving allergy symptoms – it can help to pick up dander and fur from surfaces better than any other brand of sweeper.
Pets are wonderful, but they leave behind fur, dander, and saliva that can aggravate allergies, causing a number of symptoms that require treatment. For those who want to keep their pets, this means finding a good balance when it comes to cleaning up after them.
Regular grooming of the animals can go a long way in helping to reduce the amount of fur and dander that is shed. It is advised to either have them professionally groomed, or to wear gloves and a good filter based mask when grooming them at home to avoid breathing in the dander.
Regular bathing or cleaning can also help to minimize shedding and loose dander. One thing to keep in mind is that while dogs seldom mind being bathed, cats do often mind this, so a dry shampoo may be a better bet for keeping them clean.
In addition to cleaning them more often, another good step is to keep them off of furniture, and away from bedding. If this is not possible, then the surfaces need to be cleaned more often to remove left behind fur and dander.
The best way to keep the bedding cleaned is to wash it frequently, and always use a protective cover under pillow cases and sheets to prevent allergens from entering the mattress or pillow.
The Aerofresh bag can also help a great deal, as it can help to remove the allergens from cushions, pillows, and similarly sized objects. Using this and the upholstery brush on furniture and cushions at least once a month can go a long way in relieving allergy symptoms.
Fresh And Purified Air Makes Breathing Easier
Another big advantage to the Rainbow system is that it helps to trap airborne particles with its water based system. What this means is that every time it is used, the air is easier to breathe as it has fewer impurities.
Some may find that this helps more than having a dedicated air purifier in their home. Others may find that using a dedicated purified along with regular deep cleaning relieves most of their symptoms.
While no one product can fully eliminate allergies, a vacuum from Rexair Rainbow can help to reduce the symptoms associated with them, making it easier to breathe and sleep.
