Beat Winter Allergies & Win Heaven Fresh HF719 Humidifier

If you suffer in summer with allergies you may think that winter is a time for respite from the sneezing and itchy eyes, but actually the colder days can be just as bad. Why? Well in winter we’re exposed to more airborne irritants in the home.

In the chilly weather we tend to keep all doors and windows closed to keep the heat in, which means the air in our homes becomes stale and filled with nasty indoor pollutants. Pet hair, dust, mould and mildew can all cause allergic reactions in the same way that pollens do in spring and summer.Beat Winter Allergies

Not only this, but air often becomes drier in winter and this can cause the mucous membranes in our eyes, nose and throats to dry out and become less effective barriers against airborne particles. This means we’re more likely to breathe in the allergens which cause us to sneeze and cough.

If you experience symptoms that seem like the start of a cold – itchy throat, tickly nose and streaming eyes – which go on for more than a week, it’s likely that you’re suffering from winter allergies. Here are a few tips to help you beat the sneezes and snuffles:

  1. Keep your home clean from pollutants. Vacuum and dust more often to reduce dust and pet hair levels. If your allergies are very severe consider having laminate or wooden flooring rather than carpets which tend to cling onto dust and hair.
  2. Invest in an air purifier to remove pollutants from the air. We’ve got a brilliant range of air purifiers to suit any home or budget.
  3. Wash bedding more often and consider investing in allergy bedding which is designed to repel allergens such as pet hair and dust which tend to cling to bed sheets.
  4. If your symptoms become intense, take a shower if you’re able to. This will remove any irritants from your skin and hair and the hot steam will help to clear your sinuses. If you can’t shower, wash your hands regularly instead.
  5. Drink plenty of fluids to keep your body hydrated; this well help to combat dry eyes, nose and throat. Hot drinks such as tea will help to decongest sinuses too.
  6. Keep an eye on humidity levels. In the home humidity should be somewhere between 45% and 55%, but can drop to as low as 20% in winter. Invest in a humidifier like the Heaven Fresh HF719 below to avoid breathing dry, unhealthy air.
  7. Talk to your GP or pharmacist about medication. You may benefit from taking antihistamines or using nasal sprays or eye drops. If you want to avoid medicines, you could try using a saltwater solution to flush nasal congestion.
  8. Get out in the fresh air. There’s no better way to clear your airways than a bracing walk outside, so wrap up warm against the cold and get out the house. Even if it’s just for a quick walk around the block, it could help to blow away the allergies for a while.

We’re proud to be official suppliers of Heaven Fresh products, the leading brand of purifiers and humidifiers in the UK.

    Wash bedding often at hot temperatures to kill off dust mites. Do away with curtains and have blinds because they are easier to dust and keep clean. Try to cut down on items in your home that requires dusting. Wooden floors are the best thing to have in your home. If you can't afford to invest in wooden floors you might want to invest in a great vacuum cleaner. Vacuum everyday! Don't miss your bedroom because it is a must! I would recommend that your bedroom is clutter free, dust free, with no teddy bears, and NO pets! Asthma can be worse at night so keep your room tidy. Also, own a dehumidifier to suck up moisture in your home to prevent mold growth or damp in your home that can trigger asthma. Don't burn to many scented candles or use harsh chemicals when cleaning. I have allergies and asthma and these are things that worked for me.

    Try to use more natural things to help keep the home clean.

    Tea tree oil has antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties which I have found useful when dealing with mould and mildew.

    Let sunlight into as many rooms in the home and try to open the windows everyday.
    Sunlight can kill a large number of bacteria with its ultraviolet rays.

    Lemon juice contains citric acid and there are all sorts of things around the home which lemon juice can help to clean like clean and shine metals, dissolve soap scum and hard water deposits.

    The heating's the problem for me, it has to be turned off well before I go to bed or the air is just too dry. I knew you could get de-humidifiers, but when I've looked for humidifiers all I've found before is over-priced, over radiator water holders.
