As the brisk winds of November tell us that winter is on its way, it’s time to prepare with some winter cleaning! Combating seasonal allergies becomes paramount, as allergen levels tend to surge with the changing climate. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of creating an allergen-free sanctuary, ensuring a healthier and cosier winter for you and your family.
Where To Start With Winter Cleaning
Dust mites, those minuscule menaces that thrive in warm, humid environments, are a prevalent trigger for seasonal allergies. They delight in taking up residence in our mattresses, pillows and upholstery. Regular and thorough winter cleaning is your first line of defence.
Hoovering these items with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter-equipped hoover can significantly reduce dust mite populations. Also, it’s worth opting for specialised allergen-proof covers as they are designed with tightly woven fabrics that prevent dust mites from infiltrating, providing an extra layer of protection.
Washing bedding and soft furnishings at high temperatures (above 60°C) is another potent weapon in the fight against dust mites. This temperature range effectively kills these microscopic pests and removes allergenic proteins from their excrement.
Revive Your Floors with Gentle, Effective Solutions
The next winter cleaning step is one that’s often overlooked. Flooring, whether carpeted or hardwood, tends to be a hotspot for allergens. Let’s not forget stone floors either. You can use our versatile water-based Stone Floor Cleaner, which is perfect for tackling accumulated layers of grime and stubborn grease on both sealed and unsealed natural stone floors. For particularly tough stains, it can be applied directly without dilution.
Tackling The Rest Of Your Home
Regular cleaning plays a pivotal role in managing allergies effectively and performing regular tasks is an essential part of winter cleaning.
Be sure to use our Powder Pro Multi Surface Cleaning Powder & Stain Remover! Its powerful formula effortlessly cleans, degreases, sanitises and polishes surfaces, leaving behind a streak-free protective coating for a brilliant finish. Not only does it make your current cleaning easier, but it also boasts an impressive 99.9% germ-killing effectiveness. What’s more, it’s non-toxic and completely biodegradable and can be used on surfaces including stainless steel, copper, brass, silver, ceramic tile, carpets, and more.
