Manage your allergy this summer by breathing cleaner air at home

Manage your allergy this summer by breathing cleaner air at home
Whether you simply want to keep your home clean and fresh throughout the summer, or you’re managing an allergy or respiratory condition, choosing the right products for your home can make a world of difference.

In this article we take a look at some of the best equipment that not only helps to keep your home free from harmful bacteria, but can also help you to breathe easier this summer.   


Feel the benefits of cleaner air

Some allergies, including dust and pet allergies are more prominent indoors, where mites and dander can land on the floor, furniture and different surfaces around the home. However, other airborne allergens and pollutants, including pollen and smoke can make their way into our homes and affect the air we breathe. 

Investing in a Honeywell Premium Air Purifier could make all the difference to the air you breathe at home and its HEPA filter technology is the golden standard in air purification. Not only can this invaluable piece of equipment help to reduce flare-ups from an allergy by filtering airborne particles, including dust, pollen and particles from pets, it also has a purification level setting to optimise germ-capturing performance – ideal for the times we’re currently living in.


Continue spring cleaning – even through the summer

Regular cleaning is especially beneficial if you have a pet or dust allergy as it can help to remove the particles that are causing irritation. If you are affected by some of the ingredients in cleaning products, a damp cloth can be used to wipes down surfaces all around the home, as this will prevent particles from rising into the air. 

If your allergy permits, you can use also use a disinfectant spray or carpet cleaner which will provide a stronger alternative to remove dirt at home. This Sursol range can also kill bacteria for up to four hours from surfaces at home. 

Regularly washing bedding, soft furnishings and pillows around the home can help to reduce the presence of dust mites and pet dander from your furniture. Frequently vacuuming the floors, as well as other areas such as mattresses and sofa cushions (which aren’t suitable for the washing machine), is also worth considering. 

Invest in the bedding of your dreams

Many types of bedding have hypoallergenic or anti-allergy properties that make them resistant to dust mites – ideal if you’re living with allergies or asthma. At Complete Care Shop, we offer a range of hypo-allergenic bedding, including duvets and covers, that are also waterproof and can be wiped down. This makes them a great option for someone who experiences incontinence at night or who needs some allergy relief to enjoy a better night’s sleep. 

If you are considering a new bed and mattress it is worth checking if the mattress features any anti-allergy qualities, as well as considering any additional requirements you need from the bed.


Managing respiratory conditions at home 

If you are living with a respiratory condition, you may be using products at home that have been recommended based on a clinical assessment, such as a nebuliser or suction machine. Suction machines, such as a VacuAide QSU Suction Machine, are typically used to clear the lungs or airways and make breathing easier. They can help to safely maintain oral hygiene and help those who are living with a respiratory condition or who may be at risk of choking. 

A nebuliser is used with a mask to inhale medication, and may be used at home to treat respiratory conditions when arranged by a clinical professional. Nebulisers may be used in a home setting if your condition is severe or you are unable to use a standard inhaler, but they are typically used in hospital. If you have been diagnosed as requiring a nebuliser or suction machine it would usually be prescribed by the NHS. If you are purchasing as a spare you should ensure that it meets the specification you require.
