Six Simple Ways to Keep Your Bedroom Healthy

The bedroom is a sanctuary for most homeowners, which means a lot of time and money is spent to keep this place as tidy and comfortable as possible. Here are some simple DIYs that will keep your room clean, fresh and bacteria-free.

Open windows

Open the windows to allow in some fresh air and prevent the room from getting stuffy. Proper ventilation removes toxins from the room and replaces it with fresher air. Opening the windows for more air allows a homeowner to save energy as well.

Keep indoor plants

House plants do not only beautify the room but they extract carbon dioxide from the air and replace it with oxygen. Potted plants like flamingo lilies and variegated snake plants also keep the atmosphere smelling fresh. These plants take away toxins also.

Clean the room

There could be dust and dirt hiding under certain areas which need special care. Under the bed and furniture are the best hiding places for dirt, even when other parts of the bedroom are tidy. Remember to pay attention to the upholstery and the pillows especially after sweeping the room. Dust may have settled on them.

Wash bedding regularly

Statistics show that after two years, a third of a pillow’s weight contains dead skin, bugs and droppings which cause allergic reactions like asthma and acne in people. That is why it is important to replace pillows after a year of using them. Bed sheets, duvets, cover cloth and pillow cases should be washed at least twice a month.

Air mattresses and blankets

Mattresses and blankets get damp from sweat especially during the warm dry season. Take off the sheets and the blankets and shake off the dust. Raise the mattress and dry them while you are away from the house. Doing this regularly will prevent bugs and other insects from breeding in the mattress.

Consider bed placement

To prevent dust from settling on the bed, keep them away from the window. In smaller apartments, where moving beds around may become a problem, keep the bed away from other equipment which is likely to produce chemicals or heat. This will increase the lifespan of the bed.

The tips listed above will not only keep your house tidy but will make individuals living in the home healthy and happy.
