Keep hay fever at bay by cleaning your home
With the summer weather starting to appear, so too has the dreaded hay fever season.
Sufferers of hay fever will know that summer can be a constant battle with the elements, potentially ruining the few sunny weeks we're lucky enough to get in Britain.
So, if you or anyone in your family suffers from hay fever, then you'll want to do everything you can to keep it at bay.
Hay fever is caused by pollen, so by keeping your house clean you should be able to reduce symptoms when you're at home.
It's nice to have the windows open and let the warm summer sun in, but this also lets the pollen in - so those with hay fever should try to keep them closed where possible, especially early in the morning and in the evening when the pollen is rising and settling.
Try to vacuum your home at least once a day to pick up any pollen that's been walked in from the outside. You will also want to make sure that you're keeping soft furnishings clean, as the pollen will stay on these.
So, change the bed sheets regularly, and also vacuum your sofas and curtains.
If you don't also have an allergy to it, then a freshening spray such as Febreeze is useful to spray down curtains and sheets between cleaning.
Make sure that you regularly dust your home too, as a buildup of dust will only aggravate your symptoms further and make your allergies worse.
If you don't have the time to stay on top of this, then call in a cleaner who can help you out. Don't let hay fever ruin your summer!
