First of all, you need to declutter your house properly, so, you can start by throwing away all the things you donít need or putting them in a drawer. Sharon Lowenheim, MBA, MSE, certified professional organizer, and founder of Organizing Goddess, Inc., suggests you “pick up and put away everything [that] has gathered on the floor. Then, do the same with all the surfaces.” Kate Pawlowski, founding partner of Done & Done Home, echoes Lowenheim’s sentiment, added that “we always suggest that doing a big declutter will make cleaning so much faster since everything is put away in its home.”

After you do this, you can start by washing your bedding properly. Of course, every human being spends about a third of their lives in bed, which means that you leave behind about 56 hours a week of sweat, body oil, dead skin cells and other secretions (as well as dust) that create a perfect environment for mites to grow there. However, did you know that there are a lot of people who are actually allergic to those mites? Perhaps, you are one of them. Who knows?! P.S. You can see what these mites look like in the image above.
