When you’re outdoors, there really isn’t much you can do, I’m afraid. However, indoors, you can make use of certain tricks and tools to help keep your home a little less chocked-full of allergens. First of all, vacuum any carpets and mop any tile or hardwood floors you have. You can also hand this task off to any children who are old enough to do it since chores build character. Dust off bookshelves and books and clean the blades of any fans you are using – desk, standing, or ceiling. A thorough cleaning will help remove dust and pet dander that can aggravate allergies.

Next, make certain that the screens for your windows are clean, fit their moldings correctly, and have no punctures or warps in them. If your screens are in good condition and mounted in the window sill properly, you can feel better about opening the windows to let in fresh air without letting in all of the allergens and pollen. You may need to wipe down your window screens weekly if you live in a high-pollen area.




Now that your home is fairly allergen-free and you can breathe easier, you need to keep the air inside the house that way. This is simple to do with air purifiers placed strategically throughout the house. One in each bedroom and one in the major living rooms and dens should keep the air throughout the house fairly clean. They can also help with keeping dust from settling. You will probably need to clean the filters on a regular basis – another character-building chore that can be handed on to your progeny.


If after following these steps, you are still experiencing difficulties with your allergies, you should try consulting with a doctor to see if there is a specific pollinating plant you’re allergic to. You can also try over the counter remedies recommended by your local pharmacist. If you’re interested in herbal remedies, supposedly hyssop and eucalyptus are supposed to be helpful in clearing the sinuses. Having a few of these plants around the house can help as they are rather aromatic.
