The dust mite droppings are the most potent biological indoor allergens known to man. (WHO).
More than 99% of homes, hotels, motels and resorts are infested with these microscopic spiders, particularly in warm, humid climates like Brisbane, Redlands, Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
We can't totally remove them from our homes but we can take measures to help control the dreaded effects of dust mite allergens.
Following are a few ideas...
Wash your sheets weekly in hot water to help remove allergens and kill dust mites
Air out your bed weekly. Don't make your bed immediately but allow it to dry out for a few hours on a weekly basis
Expose your mattress to sunlight where possible
Wash your pillows every month & hang in the sun to dry
Remove soft stuffed toys from around the bed. They harbour potent allergens. Take them outside and "beat them" before leaving them in the sun. An alternative, place your stuffed toys in a plastic bag and put in the freezer overnight. this will kill the dust mites
In serious cases, consider removing carpets from the bedroom and wash curtains regularly
Use a damp microfibre to dust shelving etc
Use synthetic doonas rather than down or feather. Some evidence shows that this can be very helpful
Regular dry vacuuming is helpful. If however your vacuum isn't fitted with industrial HEPA Filtration, it will release most of the microscopic allergens through the exhaust back into the room
