Make Your Child’s Bedroom Allergy-Free
Cockroach droppings can cause severe allergy symptoms in some people. They're often found in kitchens. They can easily make their way to other rooms.
Crumbs are a calling card to cockroaches. Make bedrooms no-food zones.
Better yet, hire a service to rid your home of cockroaches. Seal any cracks or leaks that they may use to get into your house.
These overall home strategies can also help:
from the house.
Tobacco smoke is not an allergen, but it can be an irritant and aggravate allergy or asthma symptoms.
Dust and vacuum the house using a HEPA filter at least once a week.
Change the filter in your furnace before winter and every 3 months.
Keep windows closed during high-pollen time. Use air conditioning instead.
Don’t wear your shoes in the house. Leave them at the door to lessen the outside allergens you track in.
