vacuum your carpets use a vacuum cleaner that has a built in HEPA filter

 When you vacuum your carpets use a vacuum cleaner that has a built in HEPA filter. If you use a canister vacuum attach a filter to the exhaust port. Most stores will carry a HEPA filter you need to use this type of filter or you will just blow the dust mites back into the air. All your bedding sheets, pillow cases, blankets should be washed in hot water since dust mites like to live in the bed rooms.
 Make sure to dust your furniture and do not use feather dusters which spread the mites into the air. When you dust make sure to use a furniture polish or damp cloth, wash the cloth after dusting. Dust mites love a humid environment this allows them to reproduce and spread through out the home. You should try and use a dehumidifier and run your air condition this will help keep the dust mite population down. Keep exhaust fans running in the bath room and when cooking food. This will remove the moist air. If you have a wet spill on the carpets make sure to thoroughly clean and dry the area.  Dust mites can be controlled with these suggestions and you can breath better for it.
