9. You Sleep Tight With Dust Mites
You could be sharing your bed with anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites, and the residue they leave behind can trigger mild to very severe allergies.
Fix It: To reduce allergens, vacuum and dust regularly; use linens that block mites, and replace mattresses that are more than 10 years old. Finally, open the windows and doors. Increasing a room's airflow is one of the most effective ways to cut down on dust mites.
