1.Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector

Dust mites are a main trigger for allergies. Preventing a dust mite invasion in your bed is one of the first ways you can allergy proof your house. This hypoallergenic waterproof mattress protector protects your mattress from dust mites, fluids, bacteria, and other allergens. It is made with 100% cotton allowing it to smoothly form to your mattress, while being easy to clean (and disinfect) in the washing machine.

2. Air Purifier

Pollution and bad quality air heavily impact asthma and allergy sufferers. Although we can’t control the air we breathe outside, taking steps to make sure you are breathing clean air at home can greatly improve your allergy symptoms. This air purifier captures 99 percent of common airborne pollutants such as allergens, odors, smoke, mold, dust mites, and pet dander. The purifier is great for home use because it  comes with a washable filter, filters the air at a low noise level, and is compact in size, making it fit in a variety of room sizes.

3. Dust Mite & Allergy Control Pillow Protector

Like mattresses, pillows can also get dust mites. Since pillows are in direct contact with your face, dust mites on a pillow can heavily trigger your allergies. This cotton pillow protector provides a breathable allergy barrier that fits on all standard pillow sizes.

5. Roomba

A clean dust free house is one of the main steps you can take to preventing your allergies from flaring up. But when days get busy and your exhausted on the weekends, vacuuming every week can be a unattainable goal. A Roomba is great alternative to a traditional vacuum because it cleans while you sleep. Its compact circular design also allows it to get in – and under – all of the tight dust filled corners that a regular size vacuum can’t reach.

Allergies flaring up? Set the Roomba to “CLEAN” while you take a nap to snuffle your sniffles. Then, wake up refreshed to a clean, tidy, allergen-free space.
