Avoiding Allergies in Your Home

Allergy Sufferer on Sofa

If you're one of the millions of people that struggle with allergies, Furniture and More has some tips for making sure your home doesn't add to your suffering. The furniture you buy, how easy it is to clean, and the available surface area all play a role in how allergens affect your home. The tips below can help to reduce allergens' ability to thrive in your home and keep you feeling 100%.

How to Avoid Allergens in Your Sofas, Loveseats, and Chairs

Use Dust Proof Materials

Leather and synthetic leather make great covers for people with allergies. Unlike woven fabrics, which have tiny holes through which dust can accumulate, leather or vinyl has a solid, uniform surface which is both dust-proof and easy to clean. If you have your heart set on a woven fabric, opt for one that is more tightly woven.

Shop All Leather & Vinyl Sofas
Exposed Wood Leg

Raise the Base

To avoid dust and mold from accumulating under your furniture, opt for a sofa, chair or loveseat with legs that raise the bottom of the piece off of the floor. This allows it to air out and makes it easy to frequently sweep, mop or vacuum underneath it.

Shop Sofas with Legs
futon

Try an Alternative

Futons and day beds make a great substitute for a sofa or a loveseat for allergy sufferers. Because they are available in standard mattress sizes, they can be fully encased by a large variety of allergy-proof mattress covers that are currently on the market. These water-proof, dust-repellent covers protect your mattress from allergens from all angles.

Other Things to Consider

Remove Carpeting

Remove Carpeting

Wall-to-wall carpet can be a dust magnet. Dust mites burrow inside and hold on tight. Instead, try hardwood floors with rugs that can be washed in hot water.

Avoid Clutter

Storage Ottoman

A simple design void of clutter keeps dust from settling in nooks and crannies. Opt for enclosed storage pieces to shield your belongings and keep the dust at bay.

Get Good Pillows

Bed with assortment of pillows on it.

Try to avoid fluffy pillows as they have more surface area to collect dust. Instead, try a more smooth, tightly woven pillow. It is also a good idea to to replace them every six months.

Helpful Tips

Use a HEPA Air Purifier and Vacuum Cleaner

Short for High Efficiency Particulate Arresting, a HEPA filter is 99.97% effective at capturing airborn dust particles and dust mite debris. It also catches other tiny particals like smoke, chemicals, pollen, and pet dander.

Freeze Pillows and Stuffed Animals

If you can't wash items, you can place them in the freezer for 24 hours to kill dust mites. Shake them vigorously afterwords to remove debris. If you are lucky enough to live in a climate below freezing, placing items outside works too!

Invest in a Dehumidifier

Dust mites thrive in humid places, so try to keep the humidity in your home below 50%.

Use a Steam Cleaner

Or wash items in water above 130 degrees Fahrenheit to kill dust mites. Make sure items are able to dry out completely, then vacuum or shake vigorously to remove debris.
