Some people with chronic illnesses especially ones that are of the autoimmune type suffer from allergies. Common allergens found in the home are dust mites, pet dander, mold spores and cockroaches. Since our homes are often kept closed up in hot and cold weather we can be more susceptible to having allergic reactions and even asthma.
It is not easy to avoid these or other allergens in a home. Some things that can be done is to use protective coverings over mattresses and pillows, use HEPA filters in your air conditioning vents and vacuum cleaners and using proper ventilation techniques that help prevent moisture and mold. Using green products in your home for people that have chemical sensitivities is another way to keep your home healthy.
