While we may not get the bitter cold weather in Corpus Christi that other parts of the country are subjected to, allergies never take a vacation, regardless of the season. With that in mind, we’ve put together this helpful guide with a few things that you can to do to help ease the effects of winter allergies. Let’s not waste any time and get right into it!

Keep a Clean Home
While this one may seem obvious, many people think that cleaning once a month is adequate enough for ensuring that you will be free from the effects of indoor allergies. This is not the case, and a home that looks clean may still be harboring its fair share of airborne allergens. One great way to keep up with cleaning is to make a habit of it. Doing dishes every night and wiping down surfaces will ensure that not only will your kitchen area be cleaned regularly, but the amount of work will be minimal as you’ll have less to do. Vacuuming regularly, especially if you have carpet or rugs, is also a great way to make sure that your floors are as clean to breathe as they are to look at. If you have hardwood floors or a similar non-carpeted surface, sweeping, dusting and mopping regularly will be advantageous to you as well.

Run an Air Purifier In Your Bedroom
As clean as a room may seem, the air quality may be a different story. One of the best ways to ensure that the air in your home is as clean as possible is to run an air purifier. Not only will this purify the air in whatever room that you run it in, it will greatly prevent the amount of airborne allergens that you breathe in. If you’re considering buying multiple air purifiers for multiple rooms, you may be better off investing in a whole house air purification system.

Launder Bedding Often
Part of keeping a clean house is doing laundry, but what’s most important in keeping indoor allergies to a minimum is laundering your bedding often. Think about it — your bedding remains dormant in your bedroom for a large portion of the day, and in that time, plenty of dust and other airborne allergens can settle into them. Combine that with the fact that you’re wrapping yourself in it every night, and you’ve got a recipe for allergies. By laundering your bedding on a regular basis, you can cut down on the amount of dust and allergens that will settle into it.

Those are just a few simple ways that you can reduce the amount of airborne allergens in your home this winter. At the Allergy and Asthma Center of Corpus Christi, we are here to help make your life easier and healthier. To set up an appointment, contact us today!
