Tips for Preventing Dust Mites

Written by 

Dust mites can cause allergies and discomfort, and getting rid of them can be a pain. Although you might not be able to completely prevent them from appearing in your home, following these tips for prevention can help you drastically reduce the number of dust mites that make their way into your household.

Wash Your Bedding

It's important to wash your sheets and blankets frequently to keep dust mites at bay. For best results, you should wash all of your family's bedding at least once a week. It's also important to pay attention to pillows, throw pillows, shams and dust ruffles. Not only will this help cut down on dust mite problems, but your family is also sure to enjoy a nice, clean and comfortable bed.

Keep the Humidity Low

High levels of humidity within your home can cause dust mites, so be careful. If your home is overly humid, consider using an air conditioner or dehumidifier to get rid of excess moisture in the air.

Dust Regularly

Dusting might not be fun, but it sure does help you get rid of and prevent dust mites. Use a microfiber cloth, and dust all of your furniture and surfaces when you see dust. You should also take the time to dust the tops of your appliances and the tops of your cabinets every now and then; these often-forgotten spots are often home to a lot of dust.

Vacuum Frequently

Along with dusting, vacuuming your home frequently can have an impact on the dust levels and dust mites in your home. Invest in a good-quality vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter for best results.

Wash Everything

If possible, only buy washable toys for your kids and washable toys and bedding for your pets. Keeping everything nice and clean can help you drastically reduce the dust mite issue in your home.

These tips are simple and will help you prevent dust mites while keeping a clean and happy household.
