While many individuals think that they can escape summertime allergies by staying indoors, few realize that the same allergens may be lurking inside their homes as well.

"Allergies are a year-round issue, but prevention and removal of common household allergens are often overlooked in families' cleaning routines," pediatrician Dr Laura Jana told Imperial Valley News. "With a few simple steps, indoor allergens can be reduced in the air and on surfaces around the home, which can help alleviate allergy symptoms and help your family stay healthy."

According to the news source, homeowners should keep windows closed as pollen can settle on surfaces. Since allergens can collect on one's window blinds, it's important to keep the window treatments clean and pollen-free.

Experts at Discovery Health suggests that those who suffer from severe summer allergies should consider installing new blinds that are easy to clean. Homeowners can hang faux wood blinds - the window treatments won't trap allergens the way that fabrics can and homeowners won't have to sacrifice style for healthy living.
