If you have a problem with condensation, you’re likely to also have a problem with dust mites. Dust mites thrive in humid conditions, as their only source of water is from the air. This means that if there are high levels of relative humidity in a home it’s the perfect breeding ground for dust mites. The higher the humidity, the quicker they will breed.One of the main triggers in aggravating asthma symptoms is the house dust mite and their droppings. Researchers estimate that these microscopic creatures may cause up to 80% of asthma attacks as well as countless cases of eczema.
