Making a New Home Easier for Allergy Sufferers

Have you just found an amazing old home that you absolutely love, but you’re worried that the person suffering from major allergens in your family will not love the house as much? Don’t worry! There are plenty of things that you can do to make sure that the home you are moving into is allergy-free. As one of the top Denver moving companies, we’ve seen a lot of dusty old homes, and we know a thing or two about how to make those great old places better for people that suffer from allergies – here are our best tips!

Frequency of Cleaning

With busy schedules, it can be really hard to make time to clean, right? That’s completely understandable, but someone that suffers from bad allergies has to live in a home that’s pretty clean. That means that your house has to be cleaned at least once per week. So, get into the habit of cleaning the home that you are moving into once per week, and be sure to clean your home directly after hiring one of the many Denver moving companies – just to be sure that there’s no dirt left behind.

Cleaning The Floors

Floors can pick up all kinds of things from small particles of dirt that we can see to stuff like pet dander that we can’t see. It is recommended that you clean your floors before you move into your home with a mixture of floor cleaner and hot water. Allergy experts recommend using a clean mop with warm water to clean the floors, so something like a spray cleaning device might not be the right thing to use if you have a family member suffering from allergies – use a mop instead, but be sure to replace that mop regularly.

The Things We Can’t See

Dust is the biggest problem for people with allergies, and dust can really creep up on you! Try to move around your new home and think about the areas that you can’t see – those are the ones that often have the most dust. Places such as windowsills, tops of doors, ceiling fans, tops of cabinets, counter or above counter spaces, and other areas that are hidden from view are the places where that dust will settle every time. If you add these spaces to your regular cleaning routine, you can be sure to get every piece of dust.

Temperatures

Did you know that bacteria and dust and other allergy provokers like warm and humid spaces? If you keep your home at a cooler temperature all year long (under 70 degrees), you can cut down on bacteria. Keeping your home drier is a good idea too, since humidity breeds bacteria and dust.

Professional Help

In addition to looking for Denver moving companies when you are ready to move, consider hiring a professional cleaning company to thoroughly clean your home before you move into it. Professional cleaners can often reach and find areas that most of us never even think about. When it comes to move, keep in mind that Exodus is a long distance moving company, so we can help you move anywhere that you are going – but we can’t help you with cleaning, so make sure that’s done before the move, just in case.
