How to Keep Your Room Allergy-Proof in 5 Steps

How to Keep Your Room Allergy-Proof in 5 Steps

Getting the sniffles isn’t a lot to worry about, but when you struggle with nasal stuffiness and are sneezing every time you get to your room, there’s a good chance that it’s full of dust and other allergens, and these can make it difficult for you to relax and even sleep.

To keep your room allergy-proof, here’s what you need to keep in mind:

Control your humidity

Singapore can be pretty humid, and humidity is one of the biggest factors that can trigger or worsen allergic reactions. This is where having a humidifier is definitely worth the investment. With a humidifier, you can control and adjust the humidity in your room and keep it comfortable enough for your nasal passages. Being able to filter your air also helps remove any particulates in the air that could trigger allergic reactions. Be sure to change these said filters every three months in order to prevent any trapped particlces from getting back in.

Protect your bedding

Your bedding can be an excellent breeding place for mites, ticks, and fleas, and these bugs can travel from foam to foam if you’re not careful about whatever gets onto your mattress. To keep these and other allergens from your bedding, be sure to cover your mattress and pillows with a zippered allergen-proof cover.

Vacuum and de-clutter

Vacuuming or sweeping for dust once a week is the most important part in keeping a room allergy-free. Ideally, you want to start every vacuuming session with the highest shelves and working your way down tight nooks and crevices. You should also keep your room as clutter-free as possible in order to prevent dust particles from settling into small, tight corners, as can be the case with books.

Keep pets away

Pet fur contains traces of saliva, urine, and even dead skin or flakes that can become airborne and trigger allergic reactions, which can be made worse by the warm temperature and humid tropical climate in the country. If you want to keep pets, be sure to keep their fur trimmed and combed, and don’t forget to bathe them regularly.

Reduce mold and mildew

Mold and mildew can thrive in damp areas like the bathroom and around leaky pipes, and aside from sending spores out into the air and triggering allergic reactions, they can also damage areas of your home. Leaky pipes and tiny cracks and crevices can even attract pests like roaches, which can leave droppings that trigger asthma for both children and adults.

To prevent both, you need to make sure that not only are there no leaks in your pipes and faucets, but also that all tiny cracks are sealed and all garbage is properly disposed of.

5 Interior Design Mistakes You Should Never Make Again

Design is something that’s highly personal, while there is no one set of rules that you need to follow to make your own HDB flat or condo unit in Singapore look good, there are many ways and things you can do to get that design aesthetic wrong. Here are a few interior design mistakes you need to stay away from as much as possible:

Not testing the color

It’s critical to test out the different variations of a particular paint color in any room or area before fully applying it. This is because you’re not just looking at the color of the paint when choosing one for your interior: you’re also looking at how well it works with the light, how well it works with the walls’ size and texture, and how well it coordinates with the rest of your furniture.

Styling around your TV

If there is one thing you should base your living room’s style around, it’s not your TV – there are better focal points that you can use that will give a much better effect. A better way to do this would be to design the entire area of your living room first, and only then adding the TV. This will make your sitting space look and feel a lot better to be in.

Not adding houseplants

A little green never hurt any interiors – in fact, adding a few houseplants here and there can bring a lot more joy and calm in the atmosphere than you think, and when given sunlight, watered, and taken care of properly, it can keep giving that for a very long time.

Repeating the same fabric or pattern

Patterns are great only when they’re limited to a small number of pieces, such as your curtains or your sofa pillows. Using matching fabrics or patterns for all parts of a room is tacky, and rarely used even by professional designers. Instead, keep things more varied and interesting by adding complementary colors and varying patterns, especially when it comes to window treatments, sofas, and chairs.

Pushing up all furniture against the walls

Pushing furniture against the walls isn’t always the same thing as maximizing space. While it might be better to push heavy things like bookshelves against the wall, doing so for all your appliances can actually make your spaces feel smaller. One alternative to this is to instead do the opposite: arrange furniture away from the walls in a strategic way. In the case of upholstery and tables, like chairs and sofas, it’s much better to group them in the center of the space to allow for cozier conversations.
