Address winter allergies like a pro with Boston Laundry Inc.

You notice a tickle in your nose.
After a sniffle or two, you let out a hefty sneeze.
That’s right; winter allergies are here. But Boston Laundry Inc. is here to help.
Most people associate allergies with the warmer months. With pollens aplenty outside, itchy eyes and sneezes are to be expected. But many unwittingly suffer from indoor allergies, especially during the winter months. So how do you stop winter allergies?
Boston Laundry Inc. has come up with a few suggestions for handling winter allergies, so you can save your sniffles for that cute dog commercial.
Know what causes indoor allergies: pet dander, dust mites, and mold.
When your body has an allergic reaction, it’s typically responding to something in your environment. Since pollen count is low during the colder months, you’re likely reacting to pet dander, dust mites, or mold. While we can’t help with mold (unless you have really dirty sheets), we can help with dander and mites. Boston Laundry Inc. will rid your home of these allergen offenders quickly and effectively.
Be proactive with your allergy plan.
While it’s great to know what causes your allergies, it’s best to address them before they even start. Since we’re already into the winter season, you may have a more reactive based approach this year (more on that in a moment). But for next year, start prepping your home in autumn. If you take out winter clothes from storage, have them professionally cleaned. If it’s been a while since you washed your comforter, Boston Laundry Inc. can handle the larger load. And if your pup has been enjoying the summer grass, it’s time to wash his or her bed.
Respond quickly if your allergies start acting up.
When you notice that tingle in your nose or the start of itchy eyes, it’s a good idea to act fast. Pinpoint which areas of the house make you sneezy, and see what might be causing a reaction in those rooms. For your bedroom, it’s a good idea to buy a dust mite pillowcase protector and maybe even a protector for your mattress. If your dog has been up on the couch, it’s probably best to have the slipcovers washed. And if any of your items are too big for your home washer and dryer, Boston Laundry Inc. has industrial sized washers and dryers that can handle the load for you. Just gather together anything that needs to be washed, and we’ll pick it up for you. We offer 24 hour turnaround service too, so you’ll get your items back quickly.
While winter allergies can be frustrating, they don’t have to dictate the entire holiday season. If you respond quickly, or proactively prepare your home for winter allergens, you can stop those pesky reactions all together. Remember, your health is always a worthy investment.
