Allergens can be annoying, even frustrating if you are unable to detect the cause of an allergic trigger in your home. Outdoor allergies are typical, but when these allergens come close to your personal space, it becomes a concern.

Even though experts have discovered many allergens commonly found hanging in the home, there are still measures which you need to take to further protect yourself from them. The number one spot to look is the grill. The grill harbors lots of substances, which can lead to watery eyes, runny, and stuffy nose. Here are more allergens commonly found in the home and how you can quickly fix them.

Cockroaches 

Cockroaches are huge allergens and can trigger an uproar in your body system if exposed to them. They can be anywhere, no matter whether the home is dirty or clean. Both dead and live cockroaches are potential threats and the dirt and waste they leave behind can cause allergic reactions.

Dust Mites

If you are allergic to dust, blame it on some microscopic organisms called the dust mites. According to medical experts, they feed off our dead skins cells. Most found in places like your bedding and upholstered furniture. The solution is to make sure you eliminate dust the best way possible. Similar to cockroaches, they can die, thereby leaving the waste behind. The best action in other to get rid of these allergic triggers.

Dander from animals (Dog, Cat, Mice, etc.)

For pet owners, you might be allergic to your pet’s dander without even knowing. If you are always having nasal congestion, sneezing or itching eyes, then you will need to find out if you are allergic to animal dander, like the furs.

If the pet is new, it might take a while for your system to adjust. If you are allergic to a pet, the solution is not to give the pets up because they are part of the family. What you need to do is designate certain areas of the house to them, as a pet-free zone.

Pollen

It is an outdoor allergen, but it can still enter the home through unlikely means. Most clothes you wear outside can be contaminated with pollen, taking them inside and dropping them on the sofa will only spread the pollen around. 

The solution is to make sure that clothes used for play or yard work outside do not end up on your bed or furniture. Perhaps, an indoor laundry room would be the best solution to tackle this common allergen.

There are so many allergens in the home that can mess up your health. Getting to know them and bringing a stop to them will ensure a home free of such triggers. Are you yet to discover them in your home? Now is the time.
