House dust mites are everywhere. They enter the home from the outside on every vehicle possible: clothes, shoes, pets, pollution, and the open air. Once they get inside, they make themselves at home by multiplying and invading every inch of your house. Wherever there is dust, rest assured, there are dust mites. While routinely dusting and cleaning your house will rid the dwelling of thousands of dust mites, you should also hire a professional HVAC cleaning company to purify your duct system.


Are Dust Mites Harmful?

Dust mites feed on skin flakes from humans and animals. They also thrive in areas where mold is present. While this may give you chills, you’ll be relieved to know that mites are relatively harmless. So why, then, are mites an issue? The answer is simple: allergies.


Mites carry enzymes that trigger allergic reactions such as coughing and sneezing. If you have severe allergies and you live in a house filled with mites, you’re probably suffering the most from their presence. They can also trigger symptoms of allergic rhinitis and asthma. If you’re wondering why you have these symptoms all the time, dust mites could be the culprit.


How Do You Get Rid of Dust Mites?

You can’t get rid of dust mites 100% of the time. You can drastically reduce their population, however, by purifying the air in your home and keeping it clean. You can start by hiring a Dust Doctors HVAC cleaning technician to inspect your entire system and clean out the ductwork as well as the vents. We should clean your ductwork, vents, and central furnace at least one to two times per year. This keeps dust from piling up in your home, thereby, making it less inhabitable to mites. You can supplement an HVAC cleaning by changing out your linens weekly and maintaining a relative humidity of 45% with a dehumidifier during the summer.
