Tips for allergy proofing your home

Doctors say 40% of all people suffer from some sort of allergy.

You can take allergy medicine for relief, but thisoldhouse.com says there are also ways to allergy proof your home.

* Get a full window-sized cloth shade because they don't trap as much dust

* Don't sleep with your pets because dust gets trapped in their fur

* Use door mats when you go in and out of the house

* Keep the air dry, but not too dry

Allergy doctor Gregory Hanissian advises that you know what you're allergic to before making any major changes at home, so check with your doctor first.
