Specific methods for the prevention of allergens such as house dust mites, pollen and pet are recommended.
What can be done to combat house dust mites?
Ventilate your home often (none of the house dust mites can survive in dry weather, especially when the humidity falls below 50%),
Never use steam machines,
Repair any fluid leakage anywhere in the house,
Change and wash your bedding at least once a week,
House dust mites are found at high rates on household items such as beds, pillows, quilts, carpets, thick fabric curtains and furniture. Do not use wool, goose down or feather beds, pillows and quilts, if possible, cover them with tear-resistant medical special covers,
Lift the carpet if possible,
Prefer thin tulle or roller blinds instead of thick or heavy curtains,
Keep as little room as possible in the room. Keep items such as books, trinket, toys in closed cupboards. Remove the plush and furry toys that the house dust mites can live intensively,
Clean the entire room with a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter,
Take care not to keep pets at home and especially in the bedroom.
What measures are taken for pet allergy?
* The most effective way to control complaints is to completely remove the pet from the environment,
* Keep pets away from the bedroom,
* Clean the ventilation system filters frequently,
* Use HEPA filter ventilation devices in bedrooms.
What should be done to people who are allergic to pollen?
If you are allergic to pollen, do not go out in the spring and autumn season when the pollen is dense, especially in the morning and at noon, if it is not necessary in dry and windy weather,
For sporting activities, prefer indoor areas instead of open air,
Use sunglasses when you go out,
Change and ventilate your clothes when you come home,
If possible, take a shower every day or wash your hair and face with plenty of water,
Dry your laundry in the house during the pollen season,
Keep your doors and windows closed, especially during pollen
Use pollen filter air conditioner at home and in your car,
When using your car, make sure that the windows are closed,
If you are traveling on public transport, try to stay away from open windows or doors.
