‘Use al­ler­gen­proof bar­rier cov­ers on du­vets, mat­tresses and pil­lows and wash your bed­ding reg­u­larly at at least 60º. Re­place your car­pets with hard floor­ing as this ac­cu­mu­lates fewer al­ler­gens. Wash rugs, and vac­uum reg­u­larly, in­clud­ing beds and soft fur­nish­ings. Use a high fil­tra­tion vac­uum cleaner** that can col­lect and con­tain tiny par­ti­cles and clean a va­ri­ety of sur­faces. De­crease home hu­mid­ity by in­creas­ing the ven­ti­la­tion. Use ex­trac­tor fans to keep the house dry.’
