Dr. Levine ABC's to help maintain a Healthier Home (Filtrete Blog Tour)

My 9 year old daughter was diagnosed with Asthma when she was 4 years old.  We went on a school field trip to the farm, that weekend she was in the hospital.  The doctors said, they technically can't diagnose Asthma after only one attack, but it is clear that is what she has.  She has been struggling with it ever since.  
During our time in the hospital, they gave me a ton of literature on how to clean your home to help prevent Asthma and Allergies.  We had to scrub the walls, and keep up on them; wash sheets weekly in hot water; dust and vacuum constantly just to name a few things.  Another thing we were told to do was to use a good filter in our heater.  We went to the home improvement store and ended up buying a Filtrete filter, and have stuck with that brand after since.  

When I was asked to participate in a blog tour through Mom Central for Filtrete, I was really crossing fingers to get in on it.  I'm actually loyal to the brand, and our family has been using it for 5+ yea…
