We understand how crippling allergies can be to people
(Vocus) June 21, 2010
Allergy season is in full swing. In the mountains, Cottonwood trees and flowers are blooming and in the country, tall grasses and flowers are swaying in the wind, releasing allergy triggers. For those with bad allergies, the spring and summer can become a time of suffering. However, knowing how to furnish a home can help relieve allergy symptoms indoors.
Furniture such as wood and leather are less likely to collect dust than furniture covered in material. Material attracts dust and holds it in the fabric patterns, become a breeding ground for allergy related problems. The same concept follows over to window treatments. Using wood blinds, faux wood blinds, or wood or aluminum mini-blinds can help reduce the amount of dust build-up. Some faux wood materials have anti-static properties that repel dust.
Most wood and faux wood blinds and mini-blinds are easy to clean and should be cleaned at least once a week. Wood blinds can remain hanging for cleaning and a quick wipe with a damp cloth will get rid of allergy triggers. The same goes for aluminum mini-blinds. Some blinds require removing them from the wall to clean, however, wood and faux wood do not.
“We understand how crippling allergies can be to people,” says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet. “Cleaning the house, once a week, including window treatments can help alleviate a lot of allergy symptoms and create a safe haven for allergy sufferers.”
