In a bed with the enemy of

the Allergy - a thing unpleasant. And it is good still if allergen is a pollen of a plant that once a year blossoms. And if the allergy in you is caused by a home?

Here two exits - to move from a native nest in sterile hospital chamber or to move from it uninvited lodgers. I think, the second option will be pleasant to all more. We will also talk about it.

As were found out by experts, an allergy to house dust - the most widespread of its types. The composition of house dust is very difficult. Here and fibers of fabrics from carpets, upholstered furniture, clothes, bed linen and even children`s soft toys. And parts of a feather and down from bedding, wool and epidermis of animals from fur things.

Here and toxic waste products of the microorganisms inhabiting our house. It not only cockroaches, spiders and other satellites of mankind, but also billions of various microscopic pincers feeding on any organic chemistry. These microscopic ticks love all natural: willingly live in woolen carpets, plaids and blankets. But with us those from them who settle in down - feather pillows have the closest neighbourhood. The warm damp environment full of food, - this paradise for pincers - peroyed leads to the fact that in ten years of operation each pillow from a feather or down on 40 (!) percent consists of pincers and products from activity.

the Bird`s feather as many remember from zoology, consists of the smallest hooks which are separately very small and easily get through bedtick fabric into our lungs. Only imagine what quantity of the smallest hooks stick into our throat, bronchial tubes and lungs at each breath!

you do not trust

? And whether there were at you sudden attacks of dry unrestrained cough at night? If it occurs regularly, so it is time to say goodbye to a pillow. However you should not wait when you develop an allergy (and even asthma). Feather and down pillows have to change at least once in 10 years, and be erased annually at the maximum temperatures and “be fried thoroughly“ properly on the sun and a warm breeze. Not behind glass! Allergens of pincers decay under the influence of ultraviolet rays. And pincers do not transfer low temperatures so also be not too lazy to take out at least once in a month bedding on a frost in the winter.

the Same can be told

also about mattresses with natural fillers and woolen blankets. The last are capable to cause an allergy without any pincers: hair of animals - one of the most aggressive allergens.

Can be made

in a different way if it is a pity to leave favourite things. Pack the pillows, mattresses and blankets into covers from plastic or vinyl materials - they do not pass allergens. And in general, you remember: it is possible to fight against pincers! Wash things in which they can lodge, in hot (it is not lower than 70 degrees) to water, do not allow strong humidity in living rooms. For extermination of ticks in carpets use special preparations - acaricides.


Bed linen from soft fabrics, being used up under your body, too gives microscopic dust from fibers. To breathe in a bedroom it is easy and free, use only smooth bed linen.

Fluffy house carpets are nurseries of pincers too, but the main thing - they hold house dust, without giving to the vacuum cleaner (even very powerful and modern) and to a damp rag to relieve you of it in time. So if at someone from members of household the allergy to house dust is established, it is necessary to leave all pylesobirayushchy things in the house: friable upholstered furniture, heavy curtains, thick carpets, cushions, surplus of soft toys.

As you already understood

, synthetics (certainly, qualitative, hypoallergenic) - the best choice for fight against dust and pincers. Therefore at an allergy it is necessary to replace all natural with “easy“ things: blinds or curtains from fine pyleottalkivayushchy fabrics, pillows, blankets on a synthetic winterizer, a mattress from foam rubber or soldered in a tight polyethylene cover, furniture with a porolonovy filler and in the covers which are removed for washing.

Having an allergy (or at its presence) should not be engaged also at home in sewing, knitting, wool rewind, work with fur, paper, silnopakhnushchy substances. And even most to make damp house cleaning. If you have nobody to shift these duties - arrange draft in the house, protect the breath by a damp gauze bandage and do not remain in the house after cleaning during of 3 - 4 hours. Buy the modern vacuum cleaner with multistage purification of air and you watch efficiency of filters.

If you are sick with an allergy, it is necessary to reconsider also clothes. Whenever possible refuse natural woolen and fur things, and do not forget to beat out and erase multilayered winter clothes more often.

you do not store the book and a thing on the open (not glazed) shelves, you do not hold the mass of small souvenirs from which it is so difficult to delete dust. You do not part window plants: on them dust accumulates and allergenic mold fungi live. Do not use naphthalene, aerosol air fresheners and insecticides.

Unfortunately as experts established, the allergy to hair of pets and feathers of birds soon joins an allergy to house dust almost always also. So, without waiting for expansion of a range of allergens, you should leave pets even if it is heavy psychologically. Allergists include in the list of potentially dangerous pets and aquarian small fishes from - for high allergenicities of their dry feed. In this case it is possible to be limited to an exception of their diet of a dry feed.
