Dust Mites and Bed Mattresses: 3 Tips to Reduce Your Allergy Symptoms

Do you suffer from allergies? Well, if you often find yourself itching, red-eyed, and sneezy in the morning as you wake up, it might be because you’ve been sharing your bed with dust mites. These tiny creatures are one of the main causes of allergies at home and when there’s a lot of them in your bed, you most certainly won’t get a good night’s sleep.
