Our 5 essential steps to mite avoidance


  1. Clean The Bed

    Check whether you have house dust mites (HDM) in the first place with a mite detection kit. If mites are detected, strip the bed and hot wash all bedding. Do this in a well ventilated room. Duvets may have to be taken to a launderette for this step. Use a mite killing detergent for blankets or delicate fabrics.

  2. Kill The Mites

    If the mattress is not new it should be vacuumed thoroughly with a high efficiency vacuum then sprayed with a clinically approved mite killing spray. Ideally, pillows should be dry-cleaned or replaced.

  3. Keep Mites Out

    Put micro-porous mattress, allergy pillow covers and duvet covers on the bedding. For best results these should be made from a woven material with a pore size less than 10 microns.

  4. Trap Dust, Sweat Or Traveling Mites

    Place an all-cotton quilted cover over the mattress to act as a barrier to absorb perspiration and collect discarded skin scales, dust or any traveling mites that think they may have found a home.

  5. Keep The Bed Mite Free

    The bed should be remade with freshly cleaned, hot-washed bed linen and duvet cover. Do this every week. Hot wash and dry the cotton quilted mattress cover every two weeks.
