How to Prevent Dust Allergies In The Workplace

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

Are you tired of your dust allergies? Who wouldn’t be?

Allergy symptoms can be hard to live with. Aside from coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, and nasal decongestion, some people have a hard time breathing. If you also have asthma, your allergy symptoms can be even more intense.

While it’s a good idea to find an allergy medication that works well for your allergies, it helps if you can cut down on the allergens floating around in your workplace/office. For most people, this means finding ways to mitigate their dust allergies.

In our minds, a clean office is a healthy office. Preventing allergies can be as simple as hiring a commercial cleaning services to help keep your environment clean and sanitized.

Our Top Tips To Reduce Allergy and Dust

Vacuum and Shampoo/Steam Clean the Carpets

To reduce the number of allergens, regularly vacuum your carpets and rugs. However, you shouldn’t stop there. It’s also a good idea to shampoo or steam clean your carpeted areas as well.

If you have particularly bad dust allergies, we recommend vacuuming every couple of days. You can shampoo or steam clean your carpets two to four times a month.

Mop Hard Floors

Most modern offices have a number of hard floors throughout the workplace. This is most common in the kitchen/break room area and bathrooms. Some offices have hardwood or lament flooring throughout the entire space.

While this can certainly cut down on how much dust and dirt that remains in your office, it also makes it easier for dust allergens to become airborne, which will exacerbate your dust allergies. We recommend sweeping every couple of days. However, each day you sweep you should also mop using a damp microfiber cloth or mop sponge.

Deep Clean the Bedroom

One of the most common rooms of the office for dust allergies is the bathroom. Your team and clients spend a large amount of your time in that room every day. Preventing allergies means updating your bathroom cleaning checklist.

We recommend wiping down and cleaning your bathroom frequently. This includes a deep clean on the walls.
