2. Maintain low humidity

Dust mites thrive in humid areas, so maintaining proper humidity levels in your home will help you manage the dust. A relative humidity under 50% is recommended for your home, and you can pick up a hygrometer at your local hardware store to monitor these levels. A reliable air conditioner or dehumidifier will take care of the humidity in the background as you handle the rest of your home maintenance.
