Dust mite allergy: House dust contains dust mite allergens but also, insect proteins, animal dander, molds and many other possible allergens. Dust mites can often be reduced by dropping indoor humidity below 30% with a dehumidifier. Consider a vacuum with a hepa filter. Dust mite covers for a new pillow and mattress could also help. Look for whole house hvac filter with a merv rating of 10 or more.
