If your allergies come from several different irritants (pollen, dust, dirt, etc.), a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter may be the answer to your stuffy-nosed prayers.
HEPA filters clean and sanitize the air so it’s free from allergens such as pollen, dust and smoke. They’re even helpful in eliminating general odors.
There are several different air filtration devices with true HEPA filters, ranging in price from $30 and up.
Some are free standing, like a fan, while others are small plug-ins, like a night light. You can even purchase HEPA filters for your heating and A/C ducts. Whichever type you choose, make sure you choose a filter that is compatible with your room’s square footage.
And when you’re using your filter, take extra care to keep windows and doors shut and properly sealed. It may sound like an extreme measure to essentially seal your room off from the outside world, but doing so is one of the best ways to ward off allergens.
