How to Control Dust the Spread of Dust Mites

How to Control Dust the Spread of Dust Mites

No matter how spotless you keep your home, no matter how often you dust, sweep, and vacuum, you will never be able to completely control the spread of dust mites.

These microscopic creatures inhabit every home on every continent besides Antarctica. They thrive in warm and humid conditions and feast on dry flakes of human skin and pet dander.

Dust mites are essentially harmless unless, of course, you’re allergic to them. The allergic reaction comes from the protein and waste their bodies produce.

So, to prevent dust allergies or lessen their impact on your sinuses, just follow these

simple steps:

  • Keep indoor relative humidity below 50%, even if it takes a whole-house dehumidifier. Also, use vent fans while cooking and bathing. Open windows regularly to air out your home.
  • Keep your HVAC systems in top working order by cleaning or replacing the filters about once a month or as needed.
  • Consider replacing wall-to-wall carpet with tile, wood, or some other hard flooring material. Wash bed linens in hot water once a week and use mite-proof pillow and mattress covers.
  • When dusting, use a damp cloth or rag. Dry dusters do little more than stir dust around.
  • Limit the number of stuffed animals and soft toys your children keep in their bedrooms.
  • Vacuum carpets, sofas and upholstered chairs once a week (ideally) with a HEPA filter vacuum cleaner. Replace your vacuum filter often.
  • Dust window blinds with a wet duster and wash fabric window coverings at least once a season.
  • Store off-season clothing in zippered bags or tight-closing plastic containers.

Correct Temp can help, too. Call now or anytime to request an air conditioning or heating system cleaning and inspection.  One benefit is cleaner indoor air.  Speaking of which, we also can install a whole-house air cleaner or UV lamp to help rid your home of dust, dust mites, and other contaminants.
