If you are like most people, you probably spend more time in your bedroom than you do in any other room in your home. There are several simple but important steps you can take to limit and reduce your exposure to common problem areas that can occur in any bedroom. If you suffer from nighttime induced asthma, airborne allergies or have other respiratory issues, these preventative measures can make a significant difference. Read more on our blog!

  1. Encase every mattress, pillow, duvet and box spring in your home with CleanRest® products featuring MicronOne® fabric technology. Block allergens from migrating from your bedding to you. Encasing your bedding is the number one step that many doctors recommend.

  2. Wash your sheets and bed linens at least once a week in very hot water. Washing and drying your bed lines often will help with bed bugs.

  3. Remove carpets, drapes and curtains from your bedroom and replace them with hardwood floors and wooden or plastic blinds.

  4. Use a dehumidifier and keep it set to less than 50% relative humidity.

  5. Vacuum your bedroom floors and furniture once a week. Consider wearing a protective dust mask while you vacuum.

  6. Freeze children’s plush toys in your freezer for 12 hours then wash them in hot water once a week to kill and remove dust mites and other allergens.

  7. If your bedroom contains a fireplace, do not use it.

  8. Keep your bedroom windows closed during peak allergy season.

  9. While we all love our family pets, we strongly suggest that you do not allow them into your bedroom. This will help reduce transmission of pet dander and other allergens.

  10. For Bed Bugs: Remove all the clutter from your home, which makes finding bed bugs easier. Closely inspect any second-hand furniture for bed bugs before you bring it into your residence. Inspect your residence regularly- after a move-in, a trip, a service worker comes in, or guests stay overnight.
