When it will fit in there, I use the microwave to make sure nothing live gets into my enclosures.

If mites show up at some point, they are not harmful to your tarantula, and you can kill them off by temporarily allowing the enclosure to dry out (and thats if you keep a t who needs moist substrate. With dry species it's unlikely you'll get mites).
There are a few species of predatory mites that can parasitise your t. But they tend to only be seen in wild caught T's that already had them
