5 Asthma and Allergy Tips for a Healthier Home for the Holidays


Holiday decorations make your home fun and festive. But they can also bring in asthma triggers and allergens. How do you deck the halls while keeping a healthy home?

Here are five asthma & allergy friendly® tips for a healthier home for the holidays.

  1. Seasonal scents can trigger asthma symptoms. Instead of potpourri or scented candles, boil clean orange peels on the stove to freshen your home.
  2. Wear a mask while dusting off decorations. Dust them outside or in your garage to prevent bringing dust in the house.
  3. Think about your allergies and asthma triggers when choosing a holiday tree or wreath. Real live trees and wreaths can have pollen and mold spores all over them. But fake trees can be covered in dust and irritants.
  4. Have guests remove their shoes at the door so they don’t bring mold and pollen into your home.
  5. Use Certified asthma & allergy friendly® air cleaners to help remove dust and other particles from the air in rooms with a lot of decorations.
