1. Reduce Dust Mites

Dust mites can exist on both fabric and other surfaces throughout your home. To reduce dust mite allergens, clean every week, including washing toys and vacuuming areas where dust mites thrive, like carpets and furniture. 

2. Minimise Mould 

Mould is another common indoor allergy trigger. To keep mould to a minimum, regularly clean bathrooms, basements and other damp areas where your child may go.

3. Groom Pets 

Children love to pet animals which can leave them exposed to pet allergens. To reduce your child’s reaction to pet dander, have pets groomed regularly, and clean carpets often.

4. Alert Caregivers 

Allergies can affect kids in other indoor spaces besides just your home. Tell babysitters, teachers, the school nurse and other caregivers about your child’s allergies and medications.

5. Stay Informed 

Know your child’s triggers and ways to avoid or reduce exposure. You should also keep track of when seasonal allergies peak and teach your child allergy awareness.
