Allergy is a disease of the twenty-first century. May be different irritants – dust, cats, light, cold, magnetic fields, and even certain people. One in four inhabitants of the planet suffers from a number of allergy sufferers is growing. Not yet invented a way to heal completely and allergy forever. So we must learn to live with it and get rid of the most common irritants at least at home.
Various decorative materials are hazardous to allergy sufferers. Varnishes, paints and synthetic materials can smell, to give phenol and formaldehyde which are harmful even to healthy people. If you can not go without these materials, at least choose those marked E1, they are less toxic. But it is best to use natural products. Floor – flooring, tile or cork. You can fast and linoleum, but really, not PVC. These floor coverings are antistatic, so it will hold less dust. Cover the walls with wallpaper, you can also use exotic coatings from bamboo, cork and cane. Better forget about vinyl wallpaper. They may be safe, but “not breathing” and underneath that is collected condensate – an environment of breeding of fungi, molds and mites that are a major problem for allergy sufferers.
If someone in your home suffers from allergies, you must declare war on dust mites. Get rid of carpets, draperies and plush toys, replace curtains with blinds. If you leave some furniture at home, at it well upholstered with leather. All items of soft interior filled with a threat to allergy sufferers. Collect dust and suitable living environment for mites. Substantial amounts of dust collected and the books, so keep them in closed cabinets. Try on surfaces in your house have the least different things. Various souvenirs and decorative objects may be behind the glass window. They themselves do not cause allergy, but difficult to wipe the dust. Much easier to wipe with a damp cloth free surface than cluttered with trivia table. A regular cleaning is the most important weapon in the fight against pet allergens.
Be careful with indoor plants – some species can cause severe allergic reactions. Everything seemingly is a matter of taste, but not in communal areas. It is preferable to have houseplants in the bedroom. Avoid also flowering plants – they release pollen, which is dangerous for people with hay fever. It is also known that geranium, oleander, ferns, aloe, dracaena and primula often cause allergies while palm trees, begonias – almost never. However, some people may not have allergies to plants themselves, but to the soil in pots, which are sometimes finish molds. Will avoid this danger if you keep plants hydroponics.
The animals usually occupy a leading position in the list of pet allergens. It is preferable to check whether you are allergic to any kind of animal before you get home. Unfortunately not only dangerous animal fur as allergies can cause and other animal waste products (saliva, mucus, dandruff). Only fish and reptiles never cause allergy, but they can have dangerous substances in that feed. Insects, especially cockroaches and their droppings are also a strong allergen, so best get rid of these “pets”.
For allergy sufferers only natural material in the bed sheets should be (cotton or silk). Down, feathers and wool are powerful allergens, even coconut fibers, which are sometimes filled mattresses may cause allergic reaction. Furthermore, natural bedding and mattresses are cleaned more difficult and therefore retain more dust mites and dust. Therefore, pillows, mattresses and quilts must have a synthetic wool or synthetic fibers. They are more hygienic – can easily wash and dry. You can also use special protective pillow cases of extremely dense tissue that would create a barrier against germs. And do not forget that everything has a shelf life – mattresses must be replaced every ten years, and pillows – every five years!
The microclimate at home can seriously embitter the life of a person suffering from allergies. When the air in the room is too dry, the dust easily falls into the air and then – in the airways of humans. Too wet areas are not preferable – they actively proliferate mites and molds, especially if it’s warm. The best temperature for the house is 22 degrees and the humidity should be between 30 and 50%. You can maintain the ideal conditions by using special air conditioning systems to maintain humidity. You will forget the discomfort of dried mucous membranes of the nose and throat. People suffering from respiratory diseases and allergies should not take the purchase of such conditioning a priority.
If you do not enjoy the blooming spring, most likely suffers from seasonal allergies. And you can not hide from pollen even in your own home – the field penetrate inside every time you open the window. Moreover, during the exacerbation of allergy sufferers are often sensitive to other allergens such as dust mites. The solution was to use the air filter with antialergenen. It not only maintains the right temperature, but with built-in filter cleans the air of microscopic allergens like dust mites, pollen and dust. Particles are retained in the filter and subsequently inactivated by enzymes.
