Are you looking for ways to make your home more comfortable for an allergy-prone child? If yes, then this infographic will help you. It effectively outlines the most effective measures you can take to keep your kids safe from pollen, dander, and dust mites in the house. Since most people spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, these precautions can really improve the quality of life of sensitive kids. For the best results, start allergy-proofing your home before the allergy season begins.

Your HVAC system should be your first line of defense against allergens. Consider upgrading your filters and be sure to change them often. Have your system professionally maintained so it operates at peak efficiency to filter your indoor air. You can also add a whole-home air purifier to your system. Next, improve your kids’ sleeping environment by upgrading to allergy-proof bedding. Cover their mattress, box springs, and pillows with woven fabrics that have a pore size of less than six micrometers. These will block the dust mites.

Keep home allergy remedies like apple cider vinegar, local honey, and nettle tea on hand to ward off symptoms that aren’t severe enough and don’t require drugs. Stock your kitchen with fatty fish, tree nuts, and fruits and vegetables that contain quercetin (apples, berries, cabbage, cauliflower, and onion) and vitamin C (strawberries, oranges, and red peppers) to help your child’s body fight off allergic reactions. Check out this infographic for more detail. All these methods will make your home a comfortable refuge for your allergy-prone child.
