melissel Posted December 10, 2011 Share Posted December 10, 2011 (edited) DD6 is having a lot of trouble with what seem to be allergies and asthma. She's not having asthma attacks (only has trouble with this when she's sick), but she does have a persistent rough cough and post-nasal drip. The pulmonologist we saw says we need to address indoor allergies. Have you managed to keep your carpeting? DH doesn't want to have ours removed, and I don't blame him (though I can see why we should--it would just be VERY cold in here without it :(). Do you vacuum/dust mop daily? If you do, do you do every room in the house daily? Do you dust everything daily? How do you dust? Do you use HEPA filters? How often do you wash bedding, etc.? Do you use those zip-up mattress covers? Pillow covers? I'm fairly overwhelmed by all this. Dusting is my most loathed chore, and something I almost never do. I did let the kids do it occasionally, but I guess that won't work now :tongue_smilie: It feels like an impossible task to manage dust, but I know many people do it, so I need to figure out where to start! TIA for any advice you can offer. Edited December 10, 2011 by melissel Finishing an unfinished thought! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
