What's the best way to get rid of house dust mites?

Move house.

Clean your house with a vacum sweeper.

change furnace filters often and vacuum often

I too am severely allergic to dust mites. The pillow and mattress covers made to protect you for this purpose are a great start. Making sure your house is not full of throws, pillows, billowing curtains, or wall-to-wall carpet is the next step. The mites nest in these types of items. Washing bedding in the warmest water possible also aids in keeping the numbers down. Depending on the type of reaction they cause in you (for me it's itchy dry skin), you may also want to avoid using dryer sheets in your laundry as this is an extra irritant to the skin. If your symptoms are bad enough (as mine are), definately see an allergist. There are many medecations which can greatly help if not alleviate your symptoms.

You can't. Dust mites are everywhere, but you can use a HEPA filter vacuum, and use a better grade of furnace filter to reduce the amount.


a vaccum

Get an air cleaner, use a damp cloth to dust a lot, get rid of excess carpet, and wash anything that is washable. It won't get rid of all of them, but it will cut down on them. Unfortunately dust mites are one of those facts of life.

U can't get rid of all of them, but at least you can clean the bed - there are specialists who will clean your matrass and duvets. Just search for them on the internet

Move to Spain where the floors are tiled and moped clean daily !!

frezze them. am allergice to them my mum used to stick my teddys in the frezzer when i was younger to kill them poor teddys. or u can buy specail stuff pillow cases and covers and mattresses

hi i got the advice that house plants and flower help with dust

Hanna that was hilarious.... thanx for the laugh this early in the morning

vacuum regularly

Trick them - they are notoriously stupid.

Simply print out some small invitations to a party down the road (preferably at an address of someone you don't like) with a map and leave them lying around the floors of your house. Them talk in a really loud voice about how you've heard that there's a really great party happening and that they'll have cheese and pineapple on sticks and gooseberry punch (a housemite favourite) there. All of your housemites will go to the fake party and hopefully not bother coming back. In the days following your trick simply be careful not to open the door to anyone who may be a housemate/gang of housemates in disguise and you should be fine.

Get rid of all your carpets, dust & vaccuum often.

Also dust mites can't live in foam mattresses.

Hi T
You can get special allergy vacuum cleaners, ask at your chemist for spray's.

You will never totally rid your house of dust mites but to lower the number you must vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.

Vacuum, wash sheets in very hot water, vacuum, get specialist bedding, spray mattress lightly with pyrethrin fly spray then vacuum. Apparently egyptian cotton bed sheets with a 250 or better thread count will not let dust mites pass thru.
