Your bedroom is supposed to be a safe haven, but it can become a nightmare for allergy and asthma sufferers if you’re not careful. Stop Columbia, Maryland, allergens and pollutants in their tracks and keep your bedroom clean and healthy with these tips.

Dust Mites

Dust mites are one of the most insidious allergens in the bedroom. This area offers plenty of flat spaces for dust to collect, such as dresser tops and nightstands. Your mattress, pillows, and bedding provide another welcome place for dust mites to settle. A dust and allergen-proof pillow or mattress cover is your first line of defense. This will prevent dust from getting into these hard-to-reach areas. You can battle dust in sheets and blankets by washing them regularly. Launder your drapes frequently as well, and vacuum as often as possible.

Pet Dander

If you have pets in your home, their dander can be a constant source of allergies and irritation. Dander is often associated with pet hair, but it’s actually the sweat and saliva of your animals. This collects on pet fur, but it can also become airborne as tiny particles independent of the animal hair. Keep pets out of your room if their dander bothers you. Keep your HVAC system well-maintained and change the filter often to prevent dander from getting into your room via the air vents.


Pollen is a common source of allergies. This can make it into your room in a number of ways. If you open the window or keep fresh flowers in your bedroom, you’re inviting pollen into your sleeping space. Keep your window closed to seal the room from outside irritants as much as possible. You should also keep shoes and jackets out of your bedroom. These can track pollen in from outdoors. Create a spot for shoes by the door instead.
