The holiday season will soon come to a close, and as many are putting their decorations back in boxes, they should be wary of an allergy attack when they place these boxes back in the attic, basement or storage closet in which they keep the decorations in.

This can be even worse for those who have asthma, as these musty and dusty attics and basements have a lot of triggers that can set off an attack, and it isn't limited to dust mites. So, those who are starting to pack everything away, should consider getting an artificial tree next year or steering clear of fresh plants and flowers, especially if they feel as though this year was quite difficult.

Dust mites feed off a human dead skin cells, and these microscopic creatures can cause quite a fuss for those who suffer from dust mite allergies. The mites can be found in pillows, overstuffed furniture, rugs or carpets. However, there are ways in which people can keep this allergy under control including purchasing a humidifier or allergy free pillows.
