Children on bunk beds
- Curtains attract more dust, try washable blinds if able.
- Laminate floors gather less dust than carpets and can be easier for damp dust cleaning.
- Avoid lower bunk beds as dust constantly falls on top of person in the bottom bunk. The dust includes dead skin cells which we all shed daily.
- Fabric covered furniture and cushions in your living room can also be a source of dust mites. If your child is unwell resting or sleeping on this kind of furniture is not a good idea.
