In brief: Dust mites
It depends whether your asthma is related to allergies.
Specifically dust mite avoidance measures are important in asthmatics who are sensitized to dust mites. Obtaining dust mite proof pillow and mattress casings. Washing sheets and covers in hot water weekly, vacuuming with a hepa filter vacuum, cleaning ducts, and considering changing out carpet to hardwood floors.
