Cleaning the Right Way to Remove Allergens

Believe it or not, there is an art to cleaning. You may think that once you’re done with spring cleaning, you’ve eliminated any allergy triggers that were lurking in your home. However, if you don’t clean the right way, you might be making the problem worse. If your cleaning routine does not specifically focus on allergen removal, you may only be moving dust around, sending allergens and irritating cleaning chemicals into the air which can affect allergy and asthma symptoms.

Learn the art of cleaning with these simple tips from AAFA’s asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program:

  • Dusting: Use moist cloths or special dry dusters designed to trap and lock dust from hard and soft surfaces.

  • Pet Dander: Keep pets out of the bedroom and frequently wash your linens where cat or dog dander can settle.
  • Mold: Look for cleaning products that help kill and prevent mold from returning. Also keep household humidity below 50 percent.
