Dust mites are found in almost every high humidity environment. Research has shown 60% of the dust mite population is found in the bed, mattresses and pillows, 30% in upholstery, and 10% in carpet.
Exposure to this allergen is minimized by keeping indoor surfaces clean. Regular, thorough vacuuming is one of the best weapons against dust mites and will help keep the dust mite population low.
It is important to use a vacuum cleaner that cleans effectively and is equipped with a filter.
Don’t forget to vacuum furniture, carpets, area rugs and floors, and have them regularly deep cleaned with high heat and extracted.
