Allergy sufferers urged to use moist cloth when spring cleaning
People who suffer from allergies have been urged to complete the bulk of their spring cleaning with a moist cloth, rather than a feather duster.
According to US-based Santa Ynez Valley News, many people who have hay fever and other similar afflictions can make their conditions worse when cleaning dust from surfaces.
Many homeowners simply make the particles fly into the air, thus increasing the likelihood that they will have an allergic reaction.
However, by using a damp rag or cloth, the dust will stick better and not cause as many problems.
Tips have also been offered to those conducting carpet cleaning.
When purchasing a vacuum cleaner, it is important to select a model with the best filters and one that requires little effort to change the bag, as this is when dust particles are likely to fill the air.
Getting the right products is also a key part of domestic cleaning for those who suffer with allergies, as substances that contain harsh chemicals may be detrimental to a person's health.
The pollen count in the UK is likely to rise in the next few weeks so hay fever sufferers may want to take necessary precautions.
