Reducing Allergens in Your Home
If you or your family suffers from allergies, you know how difficult the summer months can be. Unfortunately, summer allergens don’t always stay outdoors. Through open windows, doors, and on our clothing, they can travel indoors too.
Reduce the allergens inside your home this summer by using the following tips and tricks from The Kirby Company:
One way to reduce indoor allergens is to vacuum on a daily basis. Regular vacuuming helps to keep dirt, pollen and other allergens from building up in your carpets.
Regular dusting of hard surfaces is important. Dirt and dust settle on hard floors, tables, bookshelves, and other solid surfaces. Vacuuming or dusting these areas weekly is an important step in reducing indoor allergens.
Furniture and Window Treatments
If you have your windows open during spring and summer, it is very likely that airborne allergens have landed on your furniture and window treatments. Removing window treatments and washing them on a monthly basis will help reduce these particles. If your window treatments are difficult to take down, or can’t be washed, vacuum them regularly with the Kirby vacuum Duster Brush. Use the Suction Control Grip to adjust the amount of suction on the hose when vacuuming delicate draperies.
Use your Kirby Avalir vacuum with the optional Zippbrush attachment to clean furniture on a regular basis.
Try some of these techniques in your home, you’ll be surprised by how much of a difference these small changes can make.
