Shelly does your son suffer from allergies too? If so, does his allergies set off his asthma? If he does have allergies, you might want to see what sort of pollen (tree or otherwise) is in the area. If he does have allergies - do not leave his window
open because spring is notorious for causing a bunch of havoc because of the pollen, mold, mildew etc.
If he doesn't have allergies then the only thing I can think of is taking the carpet out of his room and put in tiles or even pergo flooring. Because even if a carpet is professionally cleaned, carpet will still stir up nasties (dust, carpet fibers) and the cleaning sometimes don't even get into the padding which can hold everything that ever happened in that room.

Hi shelly...I agree with red-34..if possible take up the carpets and lay down laminate fllors or even lino which you can hoover then mop with disinfectant....it worked for me and after doing it my night time asthma wheezing almost vanished..Another hint is put the pillows in the freezer for10-15 minutes..every couple of days....it will kill of any bed mites instantly.Try and use household sprays that are non perfumed and eco friendly.I hope your son keeps well ...all the best...groovey.
