Lower the humidity

You can keep dust mites from surviving by running a dehumidifier and lowering the humidity to about 35%. However, this method has three major drawbacks. The first reason is that when you sleep on your bed at night, perspiration can increase the humidity on your bedding, which could encourage dust mites to grow again. Secondly, a very low humidity such as 35% may be very uncomfortable for some people. Thirdly, running a humidifier constantly costs a lot of money in electricity charges. Additionally, this method won't remove any of the dust mite fecal matter from your bed, which is the actual cause of allergies. To put it simply, this method works best in combination with other methods that physically remove dust mites and their by-products.
