Making Child’s Bedroom Allergy-Free

Making Child’s Bedroom Allergy-Free

Your child’s bedroom is one of the most important rooms to tackle when it comes to a healthy environment. During that long stretch of sleep, your child may be breathing in irritants and allergy triggers. There are a few simple tips that can help you and your child enjoy a relaxing nights sleep, while you create an allergy-free bedroom for your child:

Keep pets away from the bedroom. This may be a hard task for some parents, since many children can’t sleep without their faithful companion being present. Kids just feel more protected and safe having their favorite pet around them at night. But unfortunately, pets can help trigger allergies. Many parents assume that their child is allergic to the pets fur, when in fact they are actually allergic to pet dander (dry skin and hair) or the protein found in the saliva and urine of the animal. But pet hair can cause allergies too because the protein found in the saliva can cling to the hair when the animal licks itself. Hair or fur can also pick up dust mites, pollen and even mold. Keeping pets out of the bedroom and weekly baths can help keep allergies under control.

Home Fabrics – Cleaning & Care

Home Fabrics – Cleaning & Care

You’ve put a lot of thought into selecting the perfect home fabric for your custom-made draperies or your newly upholstered furniture. Now, do you know how to take care of the home fabrics to make them last longer?

Home fabrics must be protected from the sun. Draperies should be lined, and also interlined, when fragile fabrics are used such as silk. Shades should be drawn during the day and awnings should be used whenever possible. Window glass magnifies the destructive elements in the rays of the sun. The winter sun and reflection from the snow are even more harmful than the summer sun. Trees and shrubbery help protect windows. Colors can fade by oxidation if fabrics are kept in storage for too long a period without airing. Impurities in the air may cause as much fading as the direct rays of the sun.
