1. Use allergy-proof covers on pillows and mattresses.
Wash bedding weekly in hot water (above 130 degrees F) to get rid of dust mites and use a dehumidifier to reduce excess moisture and help prevent mold in your home.
2. Do not allow pets in bedrooms or on furniture.
Pet dander – a common asthma trigger – is often difficult to avoid entirely because for many of us, our pets are just like members of the family.
