  1. Add a ceiling fan to the room will help keep the air circulating. Just make sure you dust it regularly or you’ll be circulating dust throughout the room.
  2. Get rid of carpet and installing hardwood floors will eliminate dirt and dust getting trapped in the fibers and hardwood is easier to keep clean.
  3. Install wooden blinds instead of curtains for the same reasons as hardwood floors: curtains trap dust and wood is easier to clean.
  4. Add an air purifier to the room. An air purifier can help remove dust, pollen and smoke that may be circulating in the air and causing allergic reactions.
  5. Use plastic bins to store items and avoid fabric ones that can trap dust.

In addition to those tips to allergy-proof your bedroom, here are 5 cleaning tips to keep dust and mold at bay.

  1. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter. Vacuum upholstery and curtains.
  2. Dust walls and ceiling fans often.
  3. Move furniture monthly and vacuum under and behind it.
  4. Dust with a microfiber cloth instead of a duster which can throw dust around.
  5. Wash bed sheets every week in hot water.

Hopefully these tips can help you get a handle on removing allergens from your bedroom and allow you and your family to breathe easier during allergy season! 🙂
