It is on the carpet where the house mites most often make their homes. It’s their nest! While removing bedroom carpet is a step many reluctant to take, it is the best way to reduce mites. Many studies show the importance of carpet removal in limiting both your exposure to mites and the symptoms they cause. These same studies also suggest that if the carpet is not removed, your symptoms likely to continue.
If removing your carpet is simply not an option, vacuuming using a power nozzle is recommended at least twice a year. Actually, it is the mites dropping, not the mites themselves, to which mite-allergic people react.
