ALLERGY TREATMENT
This Guidebook was written
with one goal in mind:
to help you help yourself.
It is our belief that the first
line of defense against allergy
is environmental control.
Scientific studies over the
last several years have shown
which environmental control
measures are effective and
which are not. The advice
given in this guidebook is
based on those studies.
By following our simple
plan, you can significantly
decrease your exposure to
allergy-causing substances,
and significantly improve
your health.
Substances capable of provoking allergic
reactions are called allergens. Allergies to
airborne allergens—such as house dust
mites, mold, pollen and animal dander—
affect over 50 million people in America
today. Although widespread, allergies are

treatable and the symptoms are controllable.

all three of the following treatments:
1. ALLERGEN AVOIDANCE:
Eliminating or decreasing your exposure to the substance to which you are
allergic. The less of the allergy-causing material you breathe in, the more
comfortable you will be, and the less medication you will require.
2. MEDICATION:
Using pharmaceuticals in various forms to block the symptoms of allergy.
Although this does not do anything to eliminate the specific allergy causing
those symptoms, it is at times a necessary part of treatment, especially in
asthma or severe nasal allergy.
3. IMMUNOTHERAPY (ALLERGY INJECTIONS):
Injecting the actual substances to which you are allergic, in order to
produce a degree of tolerance to them. The allergist at first injects very
minute amounts of the allergens, and then very slowly and gradually increases
the dose over time, thereby decreasing your degree of sensitivity.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hello. I’m Dr. Jeffrey Miller, a Board Certified Allergist in clinical allergy
practice since 1976, a dust mite researcher, and President of Mission:
Allergy. Twenty years ago, I saw a need for a reliable source of allergenavoidance products for my patients, and started a company to fill that need.
The result today is Mission: Allergy.
Over the last two decades, many companies devoted to the allergic patient
have appeared. But Mission: Allergy is unique in its focus on medical and

are many products that you will not see in this Guide. That is because
they either have not been proven to work, or have actually been shown to
be ineffective.
We are proud that our company is recommended by many of the finest
allergists and academic allergy departments in the country. We have earned
their trust by our high scientific and ethical standards. We look forward to
serving your needs with those same high standards and with our exceptional
customer service.

HOUSE DUST MITE ALLERGY
WHAT IS DUST ALLERGY?
Dust allergy is actually a sensitivity to substances
in the waste particles and body fragments of house
dust mites.
IS EVERYONE ALLERGIC TO DUST?
While almost everyone is irritated by exposure to
large amounts of dust, only some people have a true
allergic reaction to house dust. This true allergic
sensitivity is just as real and just as specific as an
allergy to ragweed, tree pollen or cat dander. It may
cause nasal symptoms, eye inflammation, asthma
or eczema.
WHAT ARE DUST MITES?
Dust mites are microscopic creatures that live in
pillows, mattresses, blankets, carpets and other soft
materials. They are often thought of as insects, but are
actually tiny arachnids, relatives of spiders and ticks. They
do not live on people, but live near them. Their food is the
dead skin scales that we all shed every day.
Dust mites avoid the light, and require at least 50%
relative humidity to survive. They are therefore
plentiful in soft materials, such as pillows, mattresses
and blankets, where they can burrow into the fabric to
get away from the light. Beds provide the warmth,
darkness, high humidity and shed skin scales that
mites crave, and they are the source of the biggest
mite exposure for most of us. A mattress may contain
over a million dust mites. A female mite lays about
60 eggs in her lifetime. Each mite lives for about 80
days, during which time it produces one thousand
allergy-causing waste particles.
Live mites themselves are not inhaled. Rather, it is the
waste particles that they have produced, and the body
fragments of dead dust mites, that become airborne,
are inhaled and cause allergy symptoms. This is
because mites do not live in the air, but are burrowed
in soft materials. Mite waste particles become briefly
airborne when one walks on a carpet, sits on an
upholstered chair, places one’s face on a pillow,
makes a bed, or otherwise disturbs the soft materials
where the dust mites are living.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO DECREASE
EXPOSURE TO HOUSE DUST MITES?
Efforts should focus on the bedroom, where mite
numbers are highest, and where most people spend a
third of their life. Steps should be prioritized, taking
first those actions that are relatively easy, but that
produce large decreases in exposure.

HOUSE DUST MITE ALLERGY
START WITH THE BEDROOM:
IMPORTANT STEPS
1. Encase pillows, mattress and box spring in allergen
impermeable covers, to prevent mite allergens from
escaping and being inhaled. An alternative is to
purchase a new pillow manufactured with an allergen
barrier outer fabric.
If there is more than one pillow on the bed, all of
them should be encased, or replaced with barrier
fabric pillows.
2. Use washable blankets, and wash all bedding in
hot water every 2 weeks. This will kill any live mites,
and also wash out accumulated allergen.
Replace comforters with a special comforter
manufactured with an allergen-barrier outer fabric.
Since such comforters can not be colonized by mites,
they need not be washed frequently.
3. If possible, remove the bedroom carpet, leaving a
wipeable floor (hardwood or tile).
Washable throw rugs may be used, if washed every 2
weeks in hot water.
4. Remove stuffed toys, throw pillows, pennants,
upholstered furniture, and other non-washable,
non-wipeable items from the bedroom.
Washable toys may be kept in limited number if they
are hot water washed regularly.
OPTIONAL STEPS
1. Remove curtains from the bedroom, using instead
wipeable blinds or shades. Alternatively, wash or dry
clean curtains frequently.
2. If you can not remove the bedroom carpet, use a
dry carpet cleaning product to remove dust and mite
allergens.
Avoid shampooing carpets, as the residual moisture
can actually increase mite growth.
2. Use a good quality vacuum that entraps allergen
and prevents it from blowing out through the exhaust.
Many vacuum cleaners can be inexpensively
improved simply by using high filtration bags.
OPTIONAL STEPS
1. Extend the measures described for the bedroom to
the family room: remove carpets, and use wipeable
(wood, leather or plastic) rather than upholstered
furniture.
2. Wash and dry-clean clothing frequently, and keep
clothing in a closet with the door shut. Store cleaned
woolens in individual plastic bags.
CONTROL YOUR AIR:
IMPORTANT STEPS
1. Keep humidity below 50% to prevent dust mite
growth entirely. Lesser decreases in humidity still
suppress dust mite growth and allergen production
somewhat. Use air conditioning in the summer,
supplemented with an additional dehumidifier.
2. Avoid using a humidifier in the winter, or if one is
used, monitor humidity with a gauge, and keep
relative humidity below 45-50%.
The following steps are of questionable benefit, and we
can not recommend them based on current information:
• The role of chemical treatment of mites in carpets is unclear.
Benzyl benzoate works very well in the laboratory to kill dust
mites on contact, but has not been shown to decrease mite
allergen levels in homes enough to decrease symptoms. Tannic
acid does not affect the mites themselves, but works to inactivate
the allergen in their waste particles. It is less effective and
shorter lasting than previously believed. Neither of these is
recommended by the current National Heart, Lung and Blood
Institute guidelines.
• Air cleaners, although widely used, have not been shown to be
of significant benefit for mite allergy. This is probably because
mite allergens in the air settle to the floor within a half-hour after

• Studies have shown little or no allergen in hot air ducts. Hot
air duct cleaning has not been shown to be helpful or needed.

ANIMAL DANDER ALLERGY
WHAT ARE ANIMAL ALLERGENS?
Cats, dogs and other mammals produce proteins in
their skin that can become airborne and cause
allergic symptoms. Because of their very small size
(much smaller than pollen grains or dust mite
particles) these particles remain suspended in the air
for long periods of time. It is not the hair of the
animal, but rather the dander produced by the skin,
that causes the allergic reaction. Even a non-shedding
pet produces dander, so the sad truth is that there is no
such thing as a non-allergenic breed of cat or dog.
However, it is true that some individual cats or dogs
produce more allergenic dander than other individual
cats or dogs.
START WITH THE BEDROOM:
1. Keep the pet out of the patient’s bedroom at all times.
2. Encase the pillow, mattress and box spring in allergenproof covers, to prevent previously accumulated
dander from becoming airborne and being inhaled.
[Not all encasings sold today will block animal
allergen. Verify that the encasing blocks dander as
well as mite allergens before purchasing.]
3. Wash all bedding including blankets repeatedly,
or replace.
4. Remove the bedroom carpet, if possible.

Whether or not they will be sufficient to relieve

MISSION : ALLERGY ©2008
The following steps are of questionable benefit, and we
can not recommend them based on current information:
• Despite claims to the contrary, there is no evidence that certain
breeds of dogs or cats are less allergenic than others.
• Products claiming to remove cat or dog allergen from the skin
of the pet have not been shown to be more effective than
ordinary washing.
MOLD ALLERGY
WHAT IS MOLD?
Molds are microscopic fungal organisms. They grow
as networks of interlocking filaments that spread on
and into organic matter, leading to its decomposition.
When clusters of these filaments become large
enough, they are visible as fuzzy growths of mold or
mildew. Bread mold is a familiar example.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO DECREASE
EXPOSURE TO MOLD?
CLEAN YOUR HOME:
1. Use diluted bleach to eliminate visible mold growth
in showers and on shower curtains.
2. Avoid carpets in bathrooms, or use only washable
throw rugs.

the quality service.”

What is an encasing?
An encasing is an allergen-proof barrier that completely surrounds a pillow, mattress or boxspring,
preventing the escape and subsequent inhalation of allergy-causing particles. All Mission: Allergy
pillow and mattress encasings are made from breathable barrier fabric that allows air and water
vapor to pass, while blocking all allergens.
Why are encasings important?
If you sleep 8 hours a night, you spend one-third of your life in bed! And dust mites are
present in very high numbers in beds, where warmth, humidity, and dead human skin cells
promote their growth.
Are they uncomfortable? Do they make noise?
Not in the least—if they are good quality. Mission: Allergy encasings are soft and breathable,
never stiff, hot or noisy.
Do I still use a pillow case and sheets?
Yes. The pillow case goes over the allergen-proof pillow encasing, and sheets go over the
allergen proof mattress encasing. The pillow case and sheets should be washed in hot or
warm water every one or two weeks.
Should the encasing be washed?
The allergen-proof encasings should not be washed frequently. Although they are machine washable,
frequent washing is unnecessary, since the surface of a high-quality encasing is too smooth to
allow dust mite growth. Washing may even be counterproductive, since allergen escapes into
the air every time the encasing is taken off.
How should encasings be cared for?
Simply wipe with a damp cloth or vacuum monthly to remove surface dusts. Wash encasings
only if they become soiled.
How are Mission: Allergy encasings different from other encasings?
“We recommend Mission:
Allergy. They not only
provide excellent products at
competitive prices, but they
also educate patients for
better overall allergy care.”

They are far superior to other encasings in both the quality of the barrier fabric and the quality
of the sewing construction. The differences are immediately obvious.
Do I need to tape over the zipper?
All Mission: Allergy encasings are manufactured with interior flaps of barrier fabric that prevent
the escape of allergens through the zipper. They do not need to be taped.
What is the pore size of Mission: Allergy encasings and comforters?
Mission: Allergy Premium Microfiber has a pore size of only 2 microns…the smallest of any
microfiber encasing fabric on the market. Mission: Allergy Barrier Fabric II has a pore size of
6 microns.
Why are some items in other catalogs but not yours?
Because we only sell products that work. If you do not see a product for allergen-avoidance
in our catalog, you very likely don’t need it!

are made with the same MISSION: ALLERGY
Premium Microfiber® fabric used in our
best encasings, so they are completely
impermeable to all allergens, yet feel as
soft as silk. They cannot become colonized
with mites, and will thus never contain any
interior mite allergen. Neither will they retain
animal dander allergen.
MISSION: ALLERGY® Premium Microfiber
Allergen-Proof Comforters 100% polyester. Made in USA.
Unlike ordinary blankets or comforters, these
comforters do not need to be washed weekly
to eliminate allergens, but only need to be
washed infrequently, when soiled. They are
a good alternative to encasing an existing pillow
or comforter. If desired, they may be covered
with decorative duvet covers, with only the
decorative cover requiring regular washing.

These pillows and comforters are available in your choice of two quality fillings: premium Sensuelle® and Quallofil® -each covered with the same luxurious MISSION: ALLERGY Premium Microfiber® fabric.
SENSUELLE® is made from ultra-fine fibers that are as soft and as fine as silk, for a true down-like feeling. Its superior lofting quality
provides the ultimate in comfort, softness and resilience, for a warm, lightweight, and luxurious pillow or comforter.
pillows and comforters offer an economical alternative. The patented fiber structure of the Quallofil® stuffing assures
excellent warmth and softness, while the Premium Microfiber outer cover still protects you from all allergens.

Typical
bedskirts
("dust-ruffles")
must be washed
in hot water weekly
for dust mite control,
but are difficult to
remove and replace. We
offer two solutions to this
problem: an Easy On Easy Off
Washable Bedskirt that tucks under
the mattress for easy removal and
washing, and a Microfiber Bedskirt that
completely covers the box spring, but is
constructed from Mission: Allergy barrier
fabric and therefore does not require washing.
Easy Care Bedskirts
Easy On Easy Off Washable Bedskirts
These bedskirts are held in place by an eightinch strip of fabric that is tucked into place.
They are therefore easy to remove, wash and
re-insert. Fourteen inches from seam to bottom.

CONSUMER ALERT:
These pillows, comforters and mattress pads are available
exclusively from MISSION:ALLERGY®. Do not confuse them with
other “hypoallergenic” items, even those stuffed with Sensuelle® or
Quallofil®. The term hypoallergenic refers only to the fact that the
interior stuffing does not itself cause allergy_it can still become
colonized with dust mites! Our pillows, comforters and mattress
pads have an allergen-barrier exterior, and thus cannot become
colonized with mites. They therefore do NOT require frequent
hot water washing.
MISSION: ALLERGY® Microfiber Allergen-Proof
Comforter Covers. If you already have a comforter to which
you are attached, one option is to simply place it within a cover
made from our allergen-proof Premium Microfiber fabric.
A decorative comforter cover may then be used on top of the
barrier encasing, with only the decorative cover needing hot
water washing. Our microfiber encasings are imperceptible in
use, and do not give the comforter a stiff feeling. Made in USA.

“I am always on the lookout for products that will make my life less itchy, sneezy and

canister vacuum cleaner ideal for the allergic family. Its three-stage
filter system ends with a true HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of
particles as small as 0.3 microns. Powerful 1100-Watt motor
produces unusually high suction power (102” of waterlift) and airflow (85 cubic feet/minute), yet operates at only 59 decibels, much
quieter than most vacuum cleaners. Large, impact-resistant tank
holds 1.3-gallon disposable bags, and features heavy-duty wheels
and an extra long 30’ cord. Comes with 5 bags, crevice cone, dust
brush, floor tool and upholstery nozzle. Two-year warranty.

Home Cleaning
Allows you to measure the amount of dust
mite allergen in your home. Dust mites are
invisible, but this easy test will tell you in ten
minutes whether there is a low, medium or
high level of mite allergen in samples of
carpet or bedding dust, allowing you to take
corrective action. Kit contains everything
needed to perform 2 tests: contact-free dust
collector system, testing solution, 2 test
cassettes with built-in color charts, and
complete, easy to follow instructions. This
kit uses test reagents developed at the
University of Virginia, and is the most
accurate allergen test kit available for
home use.
#RT $29.95
This dry treatment has been shown to
remove significant amounts of dust mite
allergen from carpets. Capture® cleans without water, unlike wet carpet cleaners, which
leave a damp residue that actually promotes
dust mite growth. When rubbed into the
carpet, these porous, microscopic particles
work like tiny sponges, absorbing dirt, dust
and allergen, which are then vacuumed with
the Capture® particles from the carpet. Kit
includes 24oz. Soil Release Pre-Mist, 4lb. pail
of Capture® Carpet and Rug Dry Cleaner, and
cleaning brush.

Delonghi®
Dehumidifiers
Delonghi® Model DE-400P
Removes up to 40 pints of water per day from the air, to lower mite
and mold growth. It also features a built-in pump that if desired
immediately removes water from the collection tank. The water is
pumped through the supplied 16-foot hose up to a height of 15 feet,
allowing continuous action by the dehumidifier. Other dehumidifiers
can remove a maximum of 25 pints per day, but will shut themselves
off once the tank is full, so that unless you can frequently empty the
water collection tank, they will not remove humidity up to their listed
capacity. With the model DE400P, the automatic draining action of the
pump allows the unit to function continuously, actually removing up to 40
pints of water from the air daily. Lateral intake and outflow grilles allow the unit
to be placed directly against a wall, if desired. Quiet operation. Fully portable with
Easy-Roll casters and convenient hand grip. Energy Star rated—meets strict energy
efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy. Adjustable electronic humidistat with easy to read LCD digital display and easy to use electronic
controls. For rooms up to 2,200 sq.ft. 15.5”W x 14.5”D x 23”H; 48 lbs.

Keep your lungs safe from the cold with the BreathXchange®
respiratory heat exchange mask. These high quality masks use QXtec thermal conversion technology to retain your nasal

when you inhale, the module adds the warmth and moisture back into the inspired fresh air. No batteries or
electronics are used. Your air passages will stay warm even when you’re facing the cold—important for those
with sensitive airways.

Air Control
Add moisture to the air without the risk of
mold and microorganisms. Care must be
taken with any humidifier to not overhumidify the air. But other humidifiers can
actually allow mold and bacteria to grow in
them, and then spray those organisms into
the air. Slant/Fin humidifiers are unique in
having a dual germicidal process using both
ultra-violet light and boiling, to create a mist
99.999% free of mold, mold spores and
bacteria. Units feature a stainless steel hot
water reservoir and variable humidity
control. Three-year warranty.

Blueair® 501 HEPA
Air Cleaner
Clean Air Delivery Rate:
377 cubic feet per minute
for dust
388 cubic feet per minute
for smoke
378 cubic feet per minute
for pollen
The Blueair® 501 is the
ultimate consumer air cleaner,
rated #1 in its category by the
Association of Home Appliance
Manufacturers (see www.cadr.org).
The Blueair® 501 has the highest
CADR of all units tested, cleaning twice the
amount of air per minute as the average air cleaner. No other air
cleaner delivers as much clean air. To minimize drafts, the Blueair®
501 disperses clean air on three sides through an area six times
larger than the average air cleaner. Also an energy-saver, the 501
uses the energy of a 15W bulb on the lowest speed and a 70W bulb
on the highest speed. This means that the Blueair® 501 will cost
$600 less to operate over five years* and will still clean more air
than any other air-cleaner.
Produced in Sweden by Blueair®, Europe’s leading manufacturer of
air-cleaners, the 501’s elegant contemporary design
has received several European design awards, including the
prestigious “Excellent Swedish Design” award. The Blueair® 501
is also featured in the permanent collection of the National
Museum of Stockholm.
The Blueair® 501 is constructed almost entirely of galvanized steel,
the material used in high-quality telecom equipment. The fan is
made by EBM, the largest fan and blower company in the world
and supplier to many major manufacturers of medical equipment.
The 501 can operate at an unbelievably quiet 30
decibels. This unit is extremely well built and carries a ten year
limited warranty. With four speeds, the 501 is capable of
cleaning the air in a 24’ x 24’ (580 square foot) room.
Contains three HEPA filters. 19.7”W x 13.4”D x 25.6”H; 35 lbs.

who suffer from respiratory allergies, and also provides an excellent
resource for reliable products that are appropriate for allergic patients."

How to Choose an Air Cleaner
What HEPA means and doesn’t mean.
The filter is one of the key components of an air cleaner. Filter types are defined
by the size and number of microscopic particles that they remove from the air
passing through them. Microscopic particles are measured in microns. The
period at the end of this sentence is approximately 400 microns in size. Pollen
grains are 30 microns, dust mite waste particles are about 20 microns, and cat
allergen particles vary from about 1 to 20 microns in size.
Clinically proven better sleep for allergy
sufferers. The PureNight® Pure Air System takes a
different approach from that of other air cleaners.
Rather than attempting to remove most of the particles
from an entire room, it removes essentially all of the
particles from the air you breathe at night. Using
“laminar flow” technology, the PureNight® bathes you
in an envelope of 99% pure allergen-free air. Although
there is no practical way to eliminate all of your
allergen exposure over the 24-hour day, you can
eliminate allergen exposure during the third of your
life that you spend in bed.
The system consists of a 6 1/2 inch tall HEPA filtration
unit that slides inconspicuously beneath your bed and
is connected by a vertical column to a horizontal
Laminar Arm that extends over the head of the bed.
Purified air from that arm flows in a “laminar”
(non-turbulent) pattern over the head of the sleeper. In
the morning, you can remove the laminar arm, attach
the supplied daytime cap, and turn the unit into an
all-day room air purifier.
The PureNight® assembles easily without tools, thanks
to precise interlock connections. Use the quiet low
speed during sleep, and the high speed for daytime
operation. The HEPA filter should be changed once a
year, the prefilter every 3 months. The PureNight is
unique…in design and effectiveness.
Limited 5 year warranty.

What CADR means.
The Clean Air Delivery Rate is a measure of the amount of particle-free air being
delivered into the room. It is the best measure of the true cleaning capacity of
the air cleaner, since it reflects both the effectiveness of the filter and the amount
of air going through the filter. The higher the clean air delivery rate, the larger
the size room that can be effectively cleaned of airborne particles. Clean air
delivery rates are measured using procedures standardized by the Association of
Home Appliance Manufactures (AHAM). This allows the capacities of various
air cleaners to be compared. Please note that most air cleaners have more than
one fan speed, and that the advertised clean air delivery rate applies to the
highest speed.
How to choose the right size unit.
Air cleaners are usually advertised with the room size for which they are
recommended. Keep in mind however, that this recommendation is based on
the unit’s ability to provide five or six air changes per hour in a room of that size.
That rate is sufficient to decrease particle levels in the room by about 70%. A
larger unit in the same size room can produce eight or more air changes per
hour, decreasing levels by 90% or more. This is the correct target in medical
situations. Remember also that these figures are based on using the machine at
its highest speed. This is also the noisiest speed. For less disturbance (and longer
motor life) you may want to run the unit at less than its maximum blower speed,
especially when you are in the room.
What is a laminar flow air system?
This alternative approach works by creating a small zone of totally particlefree air, for example around the head of a bed or around a working desk area.
A typical room air cleaner is constantly mixing purified air with the room air,
creating turbulent flow. A laminar flow system produces layered, nonturbulent air flow limited to a small area. This option may be considered as
a supplement to, or in place of, a whole room air cleaner.

PureNight® Pure Air System
A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter removes 99.97% of all particles as
small as 0.3 microns from the air that passes through it. But note that these
percentages refer to the air that passes through the filter, not necessarily to all of
the air in the room. Many advertisements give the misleading impression that
any HEPA filter will clean the air in a room of more than 99% of its particles. The
reality is that the amount of cleaning of the air in the room depends not just on
the filter, but on the amount of air moving through the filter. This is expressed as
the “clean air delivery rate”, or CADR. Both the EPA and the American Lung
Association recognize CADR as the appropriate test of air cleaner effectiveness.
