On average, we spend about one third of our time in bed - where up to 60% of the dust mites in the home are found! According to the Center for Disease Control, a mattress can contain between 10,000 to 10 million dust mites and you are sleeping with them every night! Although they do not bite or sting, they can make life uncomfortable for you or anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma.
These microscopic pests, which feed on shed skin and modern amenities such as climate control and carpeting, provide favorable conditions for dust mites. Because human homes provide such prime living conditions for dust mites, they reproduce quickly and are a perpetual source of allergens. Dust mites can irritate those who suffer from asthma, rhinitis, conjunctivitis and dermatitis. Dust mite's waste, not the actual mite, contains the antigens which trigger allergy attacks. Keeping the number of dust mites in your home to a minimum can dramatically affect your family's health.
Even if you don't have allergies but value a clean home, dust mites should be at the top of your hit list. Dust mites cannot be killed by bleach or soaps, and you can never completely rid your home of these creepy crawlers, but following these suggestions can offer significant relief from allergies and provide the satisfaction of having a cleaner, healthier home.
If having a healthy home is a top priority for you, Dalworth Clean offers many ways to help you control the dust mite population in your home.
