Allergy-Proof Your Bedroom

While dealing with allergies during the day can be debilitating, there’s nothing worse than trying to get a good night’s sleep, and you can’t because your allergies are keeping you awake. It creates a vicious cycle and can make matters worse, especially when all you want is to have a restful night. Getting enough sleep every night is essential for maintaining your health and quality of life, so it is necessary to tackle your allergies from another angle. Out of all of the areas of your home, you probably spend most of your time in your bedroom. You sleep there, get dressed in your bedroom, surf the web, watch television, and while you may not do everything on that list, your bedroom is your sanctuary and the place where you lay your head at night. Learning how to allergy-proof your bedroom is essential if you want to get a good night’s sleep.

If you have problems sleeping at night due to congestion, sneezing, coughing, and dealing with the onslaught of symptoms that allergies bring with it, then learn how to allergy-proof your bedroom so you can get a restful night of sleep.

• Adding some greenery to your living space and into your bedroom is a great way to liven up your space, as well as generate oxygen. Plus, certain plants can collect allergens and pollutants, essentially cleaning the air in your living space and making it easier to breathe and get a good night’s sleep at night.

• Keep your bedroom as clean as possible. This means eliminate clutter, which will help with the buildup of dust and mold. Dust and vacuum frequently, at least once a week. Just make sure your vacuum has a HEPA-certified air filter on it. Otherwise, you are essentially blowing dust and other allergens around into the air.

• Investing in an air purifier to capture impurities such as dust, dander, pollen, and other allergens goes a long way in keeping your bedroom allergen-free. Besides trapping allergens, an air purifier can help circulate the clean air in your bedroom. Ensure you get an air purifier that uses a HEPA filter, and be sure to change it regularly!

• Protect your bedding by encasing your pillows and mattress with a hypoallergenic cover and use hypoallergenic sheets. Also, it’s easy for dust and other allergens to make their way onto your bed (especially if you own animals!), so make sure you wash your bedding frequently in hot water. At least once a week is recommended. Also, if you do own a pet, make sure you keep them off your bed, or better yet, out of your bedroom.
