While it's true that an unclean house can aggravate a dust allergy, keeping your house clean does not guarantee that you'll be free of symptoms. That's because normal cleaning routines such as dusting, vacuuming or mopping won't completely rid your linens or carpets of dust mites. Try eliminating dust-catching curtains and carpets from the bedroom of an allergy sufferer. A damp mop run across a hard floor each day does the best job of minimizing dust mite numbers.
