Home Allergy Relief Tips

Springtime is a favorite season for many. Finally feeling the fresh, warm air after a long, cold winter and being able to enjoy the outdoor activities like walks, hikes, and cookouts. But for many, spring also means sneezing, coughing, watery eyes and runny noses. Allergies taint the love many have for spring. If you are one of the millions who suffer from allergies, read the tips below to aid in the relief of allergens in your home.

Clean, clean, and clean again: If you open windows during the spring it is inevitable that outdoor allergens will enter the home and stick to various surfaces. Ever open a sliding door and look at the nearest surface a few hours later and see is film of pollen? Me too. The best thing to do is wipe down these surfaces as often as you can. Vacuum rugs, couches, and other fabric items every few days to a week.

Keep windows shut: Everyone loves the springtime breeze that floats through a room when windows and doors are open. However, it’s what happens after a few minutes after the windows and doors were opened that’s not very pleasant for allergy sufferers. And forget feeling like a functioning human if someone in your neighborhood is cutting the grass. If at all possible, the best way to avoid allergens entering the home is to keep the windows shut. However, for various reasons, this is not always possible, which leads to my next point.

Air purifier: If the two options listed above haven’t done the trick for you then you may want to try out an air purifier. Make sure to seek out the air purifier that makes the most sense for you, as there are many different kinds that deal with different needs at different price points. Most air purifiers do their job reducing airborne allergens such as pollen and dust but it’s best to consult a store associate if you aren’t sure which one to purchase.

Hope you find these tips helpful. Wishing you a minimal allergy season and happy spring!

Check Your Credit Score Before House Hunting

If you’re planning to purchase a home in the near future, one thing’s for sure: You’ve got your work cut out for you! However, when you finally find the house of your dreams, the time and effort will be more than worth it!

Your to-do list will include calculating how much you can afford to spend on a house, obtaining a pre-qualification letter from a mortgage lender, and eventually comparing loan estimates.

One of the first things home buyers usually need to do before getting too caught up in their real estate search is to check their credit score. Your credit report, which is basically a detailed profile of your credit history, plays a major role in your ability to get approved for a mortgage and obtain favorable interest rates. Consumers are entitled to get a free copy of their credit report once a year from the three major credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

Before applying for a mortgage, it’s highly recommended that you check the accuracy of your credit report. If it contains mistakes, inaccuracies, or obsolete information, that could affect your ability to get a mortgage — or obtain favorable interest rates and terms. Fortunately, errors can be disputed and corrected by the appropriate credit reporting company.

The Impact of Your Credit Score

The most widely used scoring system to determine a borrower’s ability (and willingness) to stay current on loan payments is called a “FICO score.” Depending on your credit history and bill paying habits, your FICO score can range from a low of 300 to a high of 850. If you’re wondering how your FICO score stacks up against other homebuyers and consumers in the U.S., the median FICO score was recently in the neighborhood of 721 (although that number fluctuates). That means 50% of borrowers are above that score and 50% fall below that mark.

According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the best mortgage interest rates are generally offered to borrowers who have earned FICO scores in the mid- to high 700s. If your credit score falls between the high 600s and the low 700s, the interest rates available to you may be somewhat higher.

Those who are saddled with a credit rating below the mid 600s may have difficulty getting approved for a mortgage. If you’re in that situation, your real estate agent or loan officer may suggest applying for an FHA loan rather that a conventional loan. Although FHA loans can be more expensive, the standards for getting approved are more lenient. These government regulated and insured loans also allow for a more affordable down payment of as little as 3.5 percent, as oppose to the “typical” down payment of between 10 and 15 percent.

Don’t Let Your House Bring on Illness

Chemicals, metals and other household products in your home could be making you sick. Harmful products and chemicals at your house could also be creating illness symptoms in your children, pets and house guests. Keep reading to learn about some common ways that your house could be making you sick.

Overlooked and common household dangers

Lead paint can cause you to feel nauseous, constipated and sick to your stomach. Check the amount of lead in paint before you start decorating. If you exhibit symptoms,check the amount of lead in the existing paint at your house.

High mercury levels – Too much mercury in your home can cause metal poisoning. Symptoms of metal poisoning vary from person to person, but can include numbness, difficulty walking or standing, muscle weakness and poor vision. Mercury poisoning can also cause memory and cognitive thinking impairment.

You can become over exposed to mercury by eating certain types of fish. Mercury overexposure can also be derived from chemicals that you keep in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency shares that you can come in contact with mercury several ways, including by breathing in the metal. You can also ingest mercury into your system by touching products that have mercury in them and by eating foods that contain mercury. Batteries, thermometers, certain light bulbs, some vaccines, skin creams and jewelry are types of products that contain mercury.

Allergens – Pet hairs are a major cause of allergens. If you or someone in your family coughs, wheezes or sneezes every time they are around your dog or cat, visit the doctor and have test run to see if you or your family member is allergic to your pet.

Are any of these dangers at your house?

  • Poor ventilation
  • Dust mites
  • Asbestos
  • Carbon monoxide generally becomes dangerous for humans after carbon monoxide reaches levels of 100 ppm or higher.
  • Mold
  • Leaking roof
  • Pests
  • Old food

Take quick action if someone becomes ill at your house

Contact your physician immediately should you suspect that you, a family member or guest at your home has become ill due to coming into contact with a chemical or product in your house. Avoid assuming that just because you have never become ill in your home that means that no one else could be allergic or become ill to a product or chemical in your house.

For example, you might not be allergic to peanuts. However, a colleague or friend who visits your house could become dangerously ill if he is exposed to peanut butter or another peanut food product that you store or prepare a meal with at your house.

Share as many details as possible with physicians and nurses at the hospital or urgent clinic that you visit. Tell them when the person started to show signs of illness. Also, tell the medical professional or emergency technician what you ate. If you live near a landfill, share this information with medical professionals as well. The more details that you share with medical staff, the sooner the staff can narrow what may have caused the symptoms. Information that you share can also make it easier for medical staff to start treating you or another person who becomes ill at your home.
