Dust mites are microscopic creatures that thrive in indoor environments, feeding primarily on human skin flakes and other organic matter. They are most commonly found in bedding, upholstery, carpets, and curtains—any place where dust accumulates. While dust mites themselves are harmless, their feces and body parts can cause allergic reactions in some people, including sneezing, coughing, and even asthma.


What Are Dust Mites?

Dust mites are tiny arachnids, closely related to spiders, that are typically less than a third of a millimeter long. They thrive in environments with high humidity and moderate temperatures, such as bedrooms, living rooms, and other indoor areas where people spend a lot of time. Their small size allows them to stay hidden from view, but they can multiply quickly and become a significant allergen source.



Preventing Dust Mites

To minimize the presence of dust mites and the allergies they may cause, consider implementing these prevention strategies:

Maintain Low Humidity: Dust mites thrive in environments with humidity levels above 50%. Use a dehumidifier to keep indoor humidity at a lower level.

Regular Cleaning: Vacuum carpets and upholstery regularly to reduce dust accumulation. Use a vacuum with a strong filter to trap dust and allergens effectively. Nothing gets deeper than the HYLA!

Wash Bedding in Hot Water: Dust mites are commonly found in pillows, mattresses, and blankets. Washing bedding in hot water (130°F or higher) kills dust mites and removes allergens.

Use Dust Mite-Proof Covers: Encase pillows, mattresses, and box springs in dust mite-proof covers to prevent mites from accessing these areas.

Limit Upholstered Furniture and Heavy Drapes: These items can trap dust and provide a haven for dust mites. Choose easy-to-clean furnishings and washable curtains.

Keep Pets Out of Bedrooms: Pet dander can attract dust mites and exacerbate allergies. Keeping pets out of sleeping areas can help reduce exposure.



How the HYLA EST Can Help

The HYLA EST is an innovative home cleaning system designed to efficiently remove dust mites, allergens, and other indoor pollutants. This system combines air and water filtration technologies to capture and neutralize dust and allergens effectively.

Water Filtration: The HYLA EST uses water to trap dust and allergens. As the system vacuums your home, it draws air through water, which captures dust, pollen, and other particles, preventing them from escaping back into the air.

Powerful Suction: The HYLA EST boasts strong suction power, which helps to lift dust and debris from carpets, upholstery, and other surfaces. This deep-cleaning capability ensures a thorough removal of dust mites and other allergens.

Air Purification: In addition to its vacuuming function, the HYLA EST can operate as an air purifier. By circulating air through its water-based filtration system, the unit helps purify indoor air, reducing airborne allergens.

Versatility: The HYLA EST is designed for use on a variety of surfaces, including carpets, floors, and upholstery. This versatility allows you to target dust mites wherever they may be hiding.


By combining regular cleaning routines with the advanced technology of the HYLA EST, you can effectively reduce the presence of dust mites and allergens in your home. This can lead to a healthier indoor environment, particularly for individuals with allergies or respiratory conditions.



When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.
