Eliminate Winter Allergies in your Bedroom
Winter for many of us with allergies is painful to say the least. Many people confuse their hay fever or dust mite allergy with the common cold, the symptoms of indoor, winter allergies are sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, coughing and postnasal drip, and itchy eyes, nose and throat.
During winter asthma is sometimes more prominent and more difficult to control; hay fever and allergies play up and I wont even start on the effect the cold has on Eczema for some of us. But we need to remember along with all the things in our home we use to keeps us warm – the house dust mite LOVES. Here are a few tips on how to control dust mites in your bedroom during winter.
Because of the increased time spent indoors during cool weather our bedroom can contribute to our allergies and eczema, especially mould, dust mites and animal dander. Fan forced heaters circulate, dust, dust mites and animal dander these allergens are increased because of the lack of ventilation in our homes and bedrooms which are closed up to keep the cold out. Remember to allow airflow and ventilation in your bedroom as humidity creates the ideal breeding place for dust mites.
Remove indoor rugs especially over concrete floors. Dust mites, mould and animal dander can become trapped in carpet and rugs, and dampness/moisture in the room can accumulate between the concrete and the rug, creating an environment for dust mites and mould. Minimize contact with pets and keep them out of the bedrooms to reduce the amount of dander allergen in the room.
