Reduce allergies by cleaning in 2023

To some, allergies may seem mild compared to other medical conditions. However, did you know that allergies are one of the leading causes of chronic illness? More than 50 million people suffer from different types of allergies. Among these, seasonal allergies or hay fever top the list.

Thanks to science, you’d think that allergy season will get better over time. However, unfortunately, allergy seasons are getting worse as pollen seasons lengthen and intensify.

Preventing allergies through cleaning

Allergy season is here! For those with allergies, going outside might be difficult but being inside doesn’t have to be!

You can reduce a good portion of allergens indoors just by keeping the space clutter free, clean and by using the proper cleaning tools.


Outsourcing cleaning

If you have allergies yourself it’s important to protect yourself while cleaning. Vacuuming, dusting and decluttering all stir up dust, pollen and dander, making cleaning a very allergy triggering experience. We recommend wearing a mask, having another household member clean or hiring a professional cleaning company to come in for you.

Best cleaning tools for allergen reduction

Vacuum: The type of vacuum you choose makes a huge difference in allergen reduction. If you don't have a fine particle HEPA filter vacuum, use a double bag to trap as many particles as possible.


Places to clean


The most dangerous allergens in bathrooms are mold and mildew. You can halt and remove mildew growth with chlorine bleach, hydrogen peroxide, or a commercial mildew cleaner.

Rather than use chemical air fresheners, consider simmering citrus peels or spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to freshen the air.


The kitchen is prime real estate for mold growth and insect droppings. To prevent mold and mildew growth, use a vented exhaust fan to reduce moisture.

Carpet cleaning for allergies

Carpet cleaning for allergies: Allergies are common and sometimes unavoidable. Pollen in the air, dust, or pet dander all contribute to allergic reactions and it’s not pleasant. Whether you suffer from runny nose, eczema, asthma, itchy eyes. Getting your carpets cleaned can significantly enhance the air quality in your home and reduce allergens.
