Many of us in my family suffer from allergies. My son is allergic to dogs, my husband is allergic to everything I can think of, and my seasonal allergies always kick me in the butt.

One of the most important things that we do in our home to make sure our allergies are in control is to change out the furnace filter on a regular basis with a Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter.

The new Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter helps remove odors throughout the entire home while improving indoor air quality and helping to reduce airborne allergens such as pollen, mold spores and dust mite debris from the air passing through the filter. 
Did you know this about Filtrete Odor Reduction Filters?

  • They are 65 times more effective at removing odors that come from cooking, tobacco smoke, pets, mildew, and cleaning chemicals
  • When the furnace fan is turned on, they will start to remove even the strongest odors in minutes
  • Captures large airborne allergens such as household dust, pollen, mold spores and dust mite debris
  • Last up to three months for odor removal and particle capture for air passing through the filter

Changing the furnace filter is just one way to keep your home healthy. Healthy living expert, Building Biologist and author Lisa Beres has shared just a few tips that you can use in your home to keep your family healthy.

Source: Cooking
Solution: Prevent unappealing cooking odors, such as fish, from spreading and lingering throughout the entire home by upgrading to the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter.  It traps odors and gases from the air passing through the filter and helps keep the home fresh for families and houseguests. Synthetic air fresheners, candles and incense only provide temporary relief from odors by masking them in one particular room but will do nothing to remove the odors from the entire home.

Source: Pests and repellants
Solution: Pesky ants and other insects can make their way into your kitchen pantry when they’re on a mission to find food, but dousing them and your kitchen’s surfaces in toxic repellent isn’t a healthy solution for the home or the family. Instead, set a line of coffee grinds, lemon juice, cinnamon or cayenne pepper around doors and windows to create an effective barrier they won’t cross.

Source: Pet odors
Solution: Furry companions are considered family members to many — 72 percent of American households today own either a dog or a cat.  Reduce the unpleasant smell of pet dander by bathing and grooming your pet weekly and establishing pet-free zones in the home, such as the bedroom.

These last two tips that Lisa mentioned were my favorite as they are dealt with in my house at some point every year. We have ant problems in the Spring and my dog just stinks sometimes! We are trying to incorporate these tips into our home and hope that they may help you become healthier too.
