Environmental Control Measures

Dust Mites

Dust mites are microscopic bugs that live in carpets, upholstered furniture, mattresses, and bedding. They are present even in the cleanest of homes, and it is extremely difficult to completely rid your home of their presence. However, an allergist can help you limit your exposure.


Pollen is everywhere and, in most places, it is around for the majority of the year. It travels through the air and it is inhaled, causing both sensitization and symptoms in those already sensitized. Although difficult to avoid, there are some ways to limit your exposure that an allergist can teach you.


Mold spores are found indoors and outdoors. Any home can develop a mold problem under the right conditions. Mold will grow anywhere in the home; however, they thrive in damp basements and closets, bathrooms, refrigerator drip trays, house plants, garbage canisters, air conditioners, and humidifiers. An allergist can teach you ways to limit mold in your home.


The cockroach allergen is contained in their stool and skin. Cockroaches thrive in damp environments where food is present. They are difficult to avoid, since they more than likely occupy all public buildings. But an allergist can teach you ways to control them in your home.
