Make Your Home a Fall and Winter-Ready Wonderland

Fall is a busy season with hosting football “couch-gating” parties, cooking tasty treats for Halloween and spending time with the family. Before jumping into these activities, keep in mind these tips for keeping your home healthy come fall and winter time.

  • Keep shoes and coats in separate rooms from where you eat, sleep and hang out. Outerwear like shoes and coats is the easiest way to drag pollen indoors, which can aggravate you while you sleep or try to enjoy some downtime at home.
  • Shower before bed if you’ve spent lots of time outdoors. In conjunction with the previous point, wash off any pollen you may have accumulated, on your clothes or in your hair, before going to bed.
  • This goes for your furry friends, too. Keep them well-groomed and be sure to wash them of any pollen they may have collected after spending a significant amount of time outdoors.

  • Spring clean, but in the fall. Make sure you do a thorough clean of your home before closing it up for the season. Having windows open all summer may have brought more dust and allergens indoors. Dust mites are a common allergen and are found pretty much anywhere in your home. Check on areas that tend to collect a lot of dust.
  • Keep an Airwasher near by when cooking, as you might not be able to open doors and windows when it comes to getting rid of cooking odors. Venta knows when it comes to yummy fall treats like Halloween cookies or pumpkin spice anything, that those fragrances are ones you surely won’t want to get rid of. For everything else, turn to the Airwasher.

  • Nobody likes dry, cracked skin. And that’s just what fall and winter will surely bring. Stay ahead of the game by making sure your skin is winter-ready. With cooler temperatures means heaters will be turned on, which can wreak havoc on you bodies and skin, especially when you sleep at night. The average person loses between two to three glasses of water each night through perspiration and respiration, causing a feeling of dehydration and exhaustion upon waking. Keeping a Venta Airwasher in your bedroom will not only help you sleep, it will provide the rejuvenating moisture your body and skin needs to stay hydrated and looking healthy.
  • While you are running your Airwasher to keep the air in your home perfectly moisturized, it will also be collecting irritating pollen and dust. This will be a game changer for allergy sufferers. Use it in the living room, the bedroom or the office to improve your indoor air quality and rid your air of allergens.
  • Be prepared to take on outdoor activities by staying in the know with allergy and asthma apps for your mobile device. This way you’ll know ahead of time if you’ll need to stock up on allergy medications before heading to the football tailgate or the pumpkin patch.
