As spring approaches, you may begin to think of blooming flowers, dewy grass in the morning, and of course an overwhelming amount of pollen. Thousands of people across Georgia dread the thought of springtime pollen stuffy noses, watery eyes, and allergy headaches. People with asthma or those affected by allergies often try and seek refuge indoors during high pollen days. However, there can be just as many allergens inside causing respiratory issues. While pollen may feel like the obvious culprit of rising allergies, it may actually be the partner-in-crime to the main criminal: your bed. More specifically, the dust mites within your bed. What’s the solution? Join our mattress store pros in Metro Atlanta, serving the Sandy Springs area, as we explore the connection between allergies and your bed and what you can do about it.
Most people use their bed on a nightly basis, of course. As you can imagine, anything that gets used as often as a bed is bound to become dirty after years of use, whether you can see it or not. That’s part of the reason why experts recommend that mattresses should be replaced about every six to eight years.
Mattresses can collect anything from dirt to mold to dust mites and their waste. In fact, dust mites are one of the leading contributors to year-round allergies. Their waste products accumulate within the mattress as they feed on the skin cells that also accumulate from nightly use. Unfortunately, allergies aren’t the only issue that can occur from dust mite waste as research shows that people who suffer from dust mite allergies and have asthma can actually have asthma attacks triggered by them.
Dust Mite Allergies May Result In:
People who experience allergies when indoors have their most severe symptoms after spending time in their bedrooms, specifically after waking up from bed, due to the long exposure and their head resting right against the allergens. Furthermore, allergen-causing agents tend to occur in rooms that contain lots of “stuff” and that receive high amounts of traffic throughout the day. Eliminating everything that contributes to allergies is not realistic as some of the leading contributors are family members like cats and dogs or pricey renovations like replacing wall-to-wall carpeting with a hard flooring option.
A Few Habits to Help:

“If a person has allergies to indoor things, then they should focus their cleaning and other efforts on the rooms in which they spend the most time. This is usually the bedroom and often one other room, such as the study or TV room, in which they typically relax.”
— Anna Feldweg, MD
