Dust


The real reason dust tends to trigger allergies is because there are creatures that feed on it, called dust mites. Reduce the presence of dust mites in your home by using a dehumidifier to keep the air dry, and vacuum and dust your house weekly. The bedroom is a major center for dust mites; encase your mattress in plastic or an allergen-proof fabric cover to keep them out.
