Dust Mite Cleaning
Dust mites are too small to be seen, but are the most common cause of year-round allergy and asthma. They live in soft furnishings - mattresses, pillows, curtains, carpets, lounges, chairs, bedcovers, clothes and even baby capsules. Basically anywhere they get to eat dead flakes of human skin.
The problem is what the dust mites leave behind, their waste products are highly allergenic. People with dust allergies and/or mold allergies very frequently have a dust mite allergy to dust mite droppings.
Allergy symptoms for allergies to dust, dust mites and/or dust mite droppings include, asthma, bronchitis, inflammation of mucous membranes, eczema, and itchy red eyes. There are other allergy related conditions, including chronic fatigue, irritability, mood swings, and depression – but you need to check with your doctor to make sure that there are no other causes.
The best way to control and prevent dust mite allergies is a weekly hot water wash for your sheets, pillow cases, blankets and mattress covers to temporarily eliminate dust mites in your bedding. But you still need to deal with the problem in the mattress and pillows. Cleaning, sanitising and having an anti-allergen treatment at least twice a year is highly recommended to keep dust mite infestation and dust mite droppings to a minimum.
