7 Easy Ways to Eradicate Dust Mites

Dust mites are small insects that do not spread the disease, but aggravate allergies and asthma. Dust mites also quickly multiply in damp places.

Dust mites are usually found in frequently used areas such as mattresses, sofas, to carpets that are rarely washed regularly.  For it, you need to clean the house daily to get rid of dust mites.

Here's how to get rid of dust mites from the house, cited The Spruce.

1. Clean the bed

The bed is so warm and damp that it becomes a breeding ground for dust mites. This is why you should change the sheets and periodically clean the bedding.

Wash bed linen, blankets to pillowcases and roll them with warm water to kill dust mites. Dry to ensure that the mites die, and dry in the scorching sun.

2. Use mattress protection

One of the easiest ways to control dust mites is to add a cover or protector to your mattress and pillow. Use special antiallergic materials. 

Usually such a material has a dense weave and a small pore size so that dust mites are difficult to get into the bed.

Even if you use antiallergic protection, cleaning the bed should still be done every day.

3. Clean carpets

Carpets are playgrounds for dust mites because many dead skin cells stick to them. Carpets are also more difficult to clean than floors. 

If family members in your home have severe allergies, replace the carpet with laminated wood, tiles, or vinyl that can be wiped easily.

If the carpet at home is difficult to remove, use a vacuum cleaner that uses a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter or steam cleaning that can kill dust mites.

4. Maintain rungan temperature

Dust mites love a warm room, for which by keeping the room cool you can prevent the breeding of mites.

5. Reduce humidity in the house

Dust mite loves moisture. To help control dust mites, you can use a dehumidifier, open windows, check ventilation, use exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom.

6. Change and wash curtains

Curtains should be periodically washed and replaced, especially in the bedroom area. Replace thick curtains with thinner, easy-to-wash ones.

7. Reduce goods

The more items you display the more dusty surfaces there are. Store collectibles in sealed boxes or glass storage cabinets.
