Tips To Avoid Pest Related Allergies | J&J Exterminating

  • Exclude pests by sealing cracks and gaps in walls and floors using a silicone-based caulk. Pay special attention to where utility pipes enter.
  • Maintain the humidity level in the house at about 50 percent by properly ventilating basements and crawl spaces. Consider running a dehumidifier in these areas to prevent moisture buildup.
  • Vacuum at least once a week using a vacuum with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate) filter.
  • Dust hard surfaces frequently using a dust rag or damp cloth. Limit the amount of fabric items in each room since they attract airborne allergens like dust mites and pet dander.
  • Clean or replace the filters in your furnace and air conditioner each month.
  • Wipe surfaces daily, including counters, stovetops and sinks. Don’t leave dishes to pile up in the sink and make sure to clean crumbs and spills right away.
  • Store food in airtight containers and avoid leaving pet food out for long periods of time.
  • Dispose of garbage regularly in a sealed trash bin.
  • Encase pillows and mattresses in allergen-proof covers to control dust mites. Avoid down pillows or comforters.
  • Wash blankets, throw rugs and bedding in hot water, preferably at 130 degrees F, or take them to be dry-cleaned.
