4 Tips for Keeping Your House Mite-Free

Did you know that according to our internal resources, an astonishing 80 to 90 percent of dust in a home is waste from dust mite bugs? That’s a startling fact that should make you think twice about how to keep your home mite-free! From cleaning dirty area rugs to regular home maintenance, below are some of the ways you can keep dust mites out of your house.


    1. Clean Dirty Area Rugs

    Rugs are one of the biggest culprits for harboring dust mites. Unfortunately, dirty area rugs can also be a breeding ground for mites and other pests. To help maintain your home’s cleanliness and keep dust mites away, it’s important to vacuum dirty area rugs on a regular basis. Once a week is usually enough, but if you have pets or high-traffic areas, you may want to vacuum them more often. Vacuuming will help remove dirt, debris, and allergens that can attract dust mites. On top of this, you should also have dirty area rugs professionally cleaned twice a year to keep mites away.


      2. Regularly Dust Surfaces

      Dusting your home regularly is key to keeping mites away. Dust surfaces such as window sills, furniture, and countertops with a damp cloth or microfiber duster to pick up dust, dirt, and debris. This will help reduce the number of allergens in your home that can attract dust mites. Additionally, use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to clean carpets and upholstery, as this will help reduce dust and other allergens in the air.


        3. Purify the Air

        Air purifiers are an excellent way to help keep your home mite-free. Air purifiers help reduce allergens in the air by trapping dust particles, pet dander, smoke, and other airborne contaminants. An air purifier with a HEPA filter is best, as this will help remove even the smallest particles of dust and dirt that can attract dust mites. To help keep your air purifier in good condition, it’s important to replace the filter regularly.


          4. Use Mattress Covers

          Mattress covers are another great way to help keep your home mite-free. Mattress covers are designed to block dust mites from entering the mattress and can help reduce the amount of dust mite waste on your bedding. Additionally, mattress covers are easy to clean in a washing machine, making them an easy way to maintain a clean, mite-free bed.

          Taking these simple steps and regularly cleaning dirty area rugs, you can help keep your home mite-free and make sure it remains a safe, healthy environment for you and your family.
