-dust and sweep at least once per week
-enclose pillow cases in an allergen reducing cover
-purchase a portable HEPA air filtration unit for the home
-eliminate clutter in the form of knick-knacks
-use your stove's fume hood when cooking (this reduces the amount of Nitrogen in the air-a common asthma trigger)
