The application of acaricides is not recommended, which involve the use of chemical products in the home, which can also be irritant to asthmatic people.
Reduction or elimination of mites requires a change in domestic habits, especially in bedrooms.
It is advisable to avoid everything that helps their proliferation such as books, stuffed toys or tapestries. Regular cleaning of bed linen at 60ºC and suction with HEPA filters also helps to eliminate them.
Humidity that does not exceed the range of 40-50% ensures poor conditions for the development of mites. However, there are some homes that naturally present excessive humidity. They are usually homes with the presence of thermal bridges and with excessive sealing.
In these homes the application of strict ventilation protocols is not usually sufficient to place humidity below 50% and additional actions that help to regulate the natural humidity are required, especially in the construction finishes , as well as elements of interior furniture.
