These 4 Things In Your Home Could Be Making You Sick

This winter, stay healthy and warm!

Break out the miniature bottles of hand sanitizer and drink your herbal tea, for we’re entering cold and flu season here in Maryland. As you prepare your immune systems for the months ahead, take a few moments to recognize the aspects of your house that could be hindering your well-being. Is your home as healthy as you think it is?

Heating and Cooling Systems

HVAC is one of the biggest causes of poor air quality, which can trigger asthmatic reactions and lead to difficulty breathing. Before you kick on the heat this winter, ensure that your air filter has been changed and that your heating unit is up to date. Insufficient units are not only unhealthy for your home but can raise your electricity bill as well.

The Bed You Sleep In

Dust mites are microscopic bugs that thrive on the humidity and warmth provided by our bodies. So that bed you sleep in and those pillows you cuddle with could actually be making you sick. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dust mites live in every home but can cause distress to those suffering from asthma or allergies. The best solution: wash your sheets and towels weekly in hot water and ensure that they’re thoroughly dried!

The Bath Mat You Step On

When was the last time you washed that plush bath mat that rests at the foot of the shower? Bath mats tend to be breeding grounds for dust mites and bacteria, especially if you step out of the shower and dry yourself on top of them. If you were scrubbing off beach sand the last time that you washed your bath mat, do yourself a favor and throw it into the wash today!

The Vacuum Cleaner

Some argue the vacuum cleaner is the essential tool in every household, as it removes dirt, dust, and other grime from the floors and furniture. However, if your vacuum cleaner is out of date, or hasn’t been cleaned in a while, it could actually be spreading dust even further into your home. Ensure that your vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filter, and that you’re cleaning it regularly.
