Relief for Dust Allergies

Dust mites live in everyone’s homes, no matter how clean you are. They live on the skin cells people shed, and absorb their drinking water from humidity in the atmosphere. They thrive in temperatures around 70 F (21 C) and a relative humidity around 70 percent. If you have year round allergies or persistent asthma, you should get tested for dust mites as well as other common indoor allergies like pet dander and mold. If your test comes back positive, you’ll have to do a dust overhaul of your home.

What you can do

  • Cover your mattresses, box springs, and pillows with mite-proof covers. If your mattress is old, consider purchasing a new one.
  • Wash sheets and duvet covers once a week in hot water, at least 130 F.
  • Keep upholstered furniture out of your bedroom, and if you’re in the market for new sofas and chairs, choose wooden or leather over upholstered.
  • Use a dehumidifier to keep humidity lower than 50 percent.
  • Wipe dust with a damp cloth to keep dust from becoming airborne
  • Vacuum once a week with a HEPA filter vacuum. Or have someone else vacuum, because this sends dust into the air.
  • Avoid wall-to-wall carpeting and rugs, especially in the bedroom.
  • Avoid wool or down comforters that trap dust easily.
  • If your child is allergic, cut back on stuffed animals and keep them off the bed. Wash them weekly in hot water.
  • Use an air purifier. It won’t filter out the mites, but it will help control the dust they thrive on.
