Bed linen needs to be washed regularly on a hot wash. Ensure you wash your mattress and pillow protectors every six weeks to remove the build-up of dead skin cells.
Vacuum carpets frequently
Dust mites love to live in carpets, so you need to vacuum rugs and carpets often. Or better yet, replace carpets with hard floors. Sufferers of serious allergies should invest in a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.
Declutter your bedroom
Remove unnecessary knick-knacks and clutter that gathers dust. Replace curtains with easy to clean blinds.
Make your bedroom a pet-free zone
This is a controversial tip, since many people love the comfort and closeness of sharing their beds with their pets. But for those with serious allergies, sharing a room all night with a pet can significantly exacerbate allergy symptoms. For the sake of your health, you may need to keep furry friends out of your room, or at least off your bed. Dust mites also feed off pet dander, so it is best to keep pets out of the bedroom altogether if possible.
