Asthma and allergy cleaning tips

Summer cleaning tips for people with allergies and asthma

  • Don’t  dry bedding on clotheslines if you are allergic to pollen
  • Check to see if it is time to change HEPA filter in the vacuum cleaner
  • Make sure the filter in your air-conditioner is clean

Fall cleaning tips for people with allergies and asthma

  • Wash bedding in hot water every 10-14 days if you are allergic to dust
  • Pour cleaners onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying
  • Use cleaners that do not have a strong smell or perfume (mild soap and water is often all you need)

Winter cleaning tips for people with asthma and allergies

  • Try to clean when the person with asthma and allergies is not home
  • Clean mildew with soap and water. Bleach is not needed and the smell is too strong.
  • Don’t use humidifiers unless you are told to by a doctor. Clean them daily if you have to use one.

 

Spring cleaning tips for people with asthma and allergies

  • When dusting, use a damp paper towel then throw it out.
