Eradicate roaches from your home. Cockroaches thrive in dirty households that give them plenty of warmth and nourishment for sustenance. Take your trash out regularly and seal food. Any cracks and entryways through which insects can enter your house should be sealed. Use of mild insecticides may come in handy.

Rid allergens from pillows and mattresses. Seal pillows and mattresses with quality covers that are allergen-resistant. On a weekly basis, wash bedding in hot water and make sure it dries completely before folding sheets or making the bed.
