Q. How can I "allergy proof" the house?

My nephew will be coming to stay with me for a couple of months and he is highly allergic. How can I allergy proof the house so he'll be protected?
A1Excellent tips :)
In the meantime everything is fine.
Thanks..
A2Webmd.com has a great article about how to do so in every part of the house. Kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathrooms:

A3Depends on the allergen…if it's dust mites- get a very good vacuum cleaner and use it once a week on everything in the house. If it's mold- buy cleaning detergent that kills mold (but be carful with them- they can destroy sealing material). Ask his parents- what they do to prevent it?
