Tips for Reducing Dust Mites in Your Home

Dust mites, as small as they are, produce waste that is a common cause of allergies and asthma.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to help you get rid of dust mites:

Cover your mattress in a dust-proof cover with a tight weave.

Wash all bed linens weekly in very hot water.

Place pillows in dust-proof covers or wash them weekly.
Avoid putting carpeting in your bedroom.

Vacuum all carpeting and upholstery in your home weekly.

Use an air filter that helps get rid of dust mites.

Wipe down hard surfaces.
