With any change in season, you are bound to have someone in your life that starts sniffling. You may find yourself beginning to sneeze and get stuff, too. While some people chalk it up to seasonal allergies, you may notice something else, as well. If the clutter in your home has begun to stack up, tons of dust may have accumulated faster than you can imagine. While it may be too early to think of spring cleaning, it’s never too early to tidy your living space and clear your head!
If you’re experiencing hay fever (sneezing and runny nose) or signs of asthma like wheezing or difficulty breathing, you may have a dust mite allergy. Aptly, these tiny bugs adore house dust. Speak with your doctor to see if an allergy prescription or if an over-the-counter solution may relieve your symptoms. For natural (and more reliable) solutions, read on!
Vacuum a few times a week. Make sure your vacuum has a HEPA filter – some allergens are so small that they will pass right through your vacuum and back into your living space.
Wash sheets in hot water. Sheets should be washed at 130 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure that you kill any dust mites. This goes doubly true for any sheets or linens that you take out of portable storage on a seasonal basis.
Most importantly, declutter! Piles of clothing or boxes can trap dust and provide harbor dust mites and even cockroaches. Clear your pathways, organize your belongings, and utilize solutions like UNITS portable storage containers to free up space in your home. Besides making your living space more, well, spacious, you will make cleaning up your home a much easier task.
Last but not least, don’t forget to rent a portable storage container! Our secure, durable, and easily transportable containers can help make your next cleanup a breeze and provide you with plenty of space to keep your home decluttered.
