Although many people associate allergies with pollen and spring time, common household allergens from dust mites, pet dander and mold can also pose a big challenge for allergy sufferers year-round.
Steps to Reduce Dust Mite Allergens at Home
Mold and mildew can be found on hard surfaces around the house. Spray Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach 4 to 6 inches from the surface until thoroughly wet, let stand for 5 minutes, and rinse or wipe clean to kill mildew. Use it to clean and disinfect bathtubs, counters, showers, sinks, refrigerators, glazed ceramic tile, and fiberglass.
Avoid contact with clothes, fabric, wood, rubber, painted and paper surfaces. Prolonged contact with metal, old porcelain or worn plastic laminate may cause discoloration. For heavily soiled surfaces, preclean surface before disinfecting. It’s best to clean up mold immediately and monitor the area. If the mold recurs, check for a leaky pipe or other water source that needs repair.
