THE MAIDS(R) offers cleaning tips to rid homes of common allergens

OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday we spend more than 90 percent of our time indoors getting bombarded by contaminants and allergens, such as dust mites, animal dander, mold, mildew and insect debris. Homes today are built so air-tight that any air that gets in -- good or bad -- has a difficult time getting out, making your housekeeping practices all the more important.

Try to prevent as many allergens and contaminants as possible from causing havoc in your home by following these preventative maintenance techniques provided by THE MAIDS Home Services.

-- Clean and change your air conditioner and furnace filters according to

the manufacturer's directions. Mold thrives in cooling systems and

pollen gets trapped in the filters.

-- Place floor mats by all entrances of the home to cut dirt and dust

indoors.

-- Wipe walls and mini-blinds with a damp cloth and vacuum draperies

often.

-- Vacuum mattresses. Put zippered, allergen-proof coverings on your

mattress, box springs and pillows to prevent dust mite allergens from

escaping into the air.

-- Have your air ducts professionally cleaned. This helps reduce the

amount of dirt, pollen and contaminants from being re-circulated into

the home.

-- If you have a humidifier, set the humidity level below 50 percent to

inhibit fungus growth.

-- To prevent mildew from forming in your refrigerator, wipe the inside

with vinegar. The acid effectively kills mildew fungus.

-- Throw away piles of newspaper; they could attract cockroaches. These

pesky critters' body parts and dried fecal particles are strong

allergens.

-- Groom all pets outdoors.
