If you or a member of your family
suffers from an allergy such as hay fever or house dust,
a major concern will be how to lessen the debilitating symptoms
of these allergies in your home. There is an infinite amount
of advice available about how you might furnish your home
to help cut down on the dust and allergens collecting in
key areas around your home. Advice includes regular vacuuming,
damp dusting, changing carpets for wooden, vinyl or laminate
floors and replacing curtains with blinds.
Whilst cleaning is important for
everyone to maintain a comfortable and healthy home it is
absolutely vital for people who suffer from allergies. The
primary benefit of installing blinds
manufactured from wood, metal or vinyl is that they are
less likely to collect dust and trap allergens. Any dust
that does collect can be easily removed with regular vacuuming
and wiping with a clean damp cloth. Curtains would need
to be regularly taken down for washing or dry cleaning whereas
blinds can be cleaned in situ making them eminently more
suitable for the allergy sufferers’ home.
Due to the nature of horizontal
does tend to settle more on the slats than on vertical vanes
that frequently move in the slightest breeze. Vertical
blinds can be a stylish option for allergy sufferers
and offer many design options including vinyl, they have
the added benefit of collecting very little dust although
it is recommended that regular cleaning is still carried
out including a quick vacuum of both sides of each vane.
If lowering the level of the problematic allergens in your
home is high on your list of priorities, consider installing
in place of your curtains throughout your home. Then necessary
regular cleaning routines need not be a chore but can be
simply and easily carried out around all those other important
things in life.
