Spring cleaning should feel good, right? Any process that ushers out the “gunk” that builds up in our homes over winter ought to inspire us to start daydreaming about warm, springtime weather. But in reality, spring cleaning can feel pretty darn daunting. Instead, you just might start a Hulu binge instead of picking up a broom.
As it turns out, if you suffer from allergies and asthma, overlooking spring cleaning isn’t so great for your body. In fact, all that dust and pet dander can impact your respiratory and immune systems in a big way.
