Can You Leave Ceiling Fans Running
Yes: The air blowing can reduce moisture hence causing dryness. ...Read more
No: As long as it's on low, the air circulation and white noise helps some people sleep better. It should not dry out the sinuses. But if you sleep with your mouth open, it can dry out the mouth a little faster. By the time air reaches your sinuses, it's been moisturized from the mouth and nose. ...Read more
If shoes get soaked from rain flooded streets from the hurricane or similar flooding, can you just air-dry shoes or do you have to spray disinfectant?
Dry the shoes .: If shoes are in very good condition then I would dry them well. Try to leave no moisture in shoes. If completely dry and you wear clean socks then I see no dander of deadly infections. Most bacteria likely to be found would be killed with prolonged heat above 180 degrees for 5-19 minutes. Puncture wounds thru wet or dirty sneekers may be risk for pseudamonas organisms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Environmental control is a priority to those allergic to house dust elements (mites, mold, roach). Room surfaces should be vacuumed to avoid dust accumulation.

Nonallergic rhinitis: You may have nonallergic rhinitis - symptoms are triggered by things that irritate your nose like wind, strong odors, diesel exhaust, smoke, even sudden changes in ambient temperature rather than allergens. There are some prescription medications that treat both allergic & nonallergic rhinitis at the same time. No allergy shots for this! your pcp or an allergist can help. ...Read more
Why?: No, you don't have to. If it's shooting out particles or dust, then the container/bag is full or the vacuum is clogged. ...Read more
Good intentions.: It's great that you want to stay fit and take care of your knees. I worry, though, that with the stairs you will be placing unnecessary strain on your knees - which could cause injury and totally undermine any efforts to stay fit. Skip the stairs, and stick to low impact exercise - swimming, elliptical, recline bike. When your knees start to get stronger, then you can do the stairs. ...Read more
Get a long brush: Ceiling fans help circulate air... And dust. Get a long-handled retractable brush with a soft bendable brush head to reach fan blades easily. Use a sturdy stepstool or ladder if you need to get higher. ...Read more
