Is your home an au­tumn al­lergy trap?

Chat - - HEALTH NEWS -

As the nights draw in, we tend to hun­ker down in­doors with the win­dows shut.

But if you’re al­lergy-prone, this could be mak­ing mat­ters worse, as dust mites and pet al­ler­gens are more likely to build up.

Ac­cord­ing to HayMax, the al­ler­gen bar­rier balm peo­ple, you can min­imise symptoms by vac­cum­ing, clean­ing sur­faces with a damp cloth, and groom­ing pets reg­u­larly.

Also con­sider us­ing an air-fil­ter­ing sys­tem with a HEPA (high ef­fi­ciency par­ti­cle ar­rest­ing) fil­ter, to cir­cu­late the air and cap­ture dust par­ti­cles be­fore they reach your nose.

Vac at­tack!
