House dust mites cause allergies and are most likely living in your home, no matter how clean you believe you keep it. Dust mites survive by eating dead skin cells, which make up to 80% of house dust. They thrive in the dust that accumulates in carpets, fabrics, furniture and bedding. Dust mites also live off of water vapor, which we provide for them through perspiring and breathing at the rate of about one pint per person, per night. Many people suffer allergic reactions from dust mite allergies. You can help solve your dust mite allergy problems here.
A Primary source of dust mite exposure in the home occurs the bedroom, which provides the best conditions of warmth, humidity, and food for their growth. The average bedroom can be infested by literally millions of microscopic dust mites. Since we spend around one third of our lives in the bedroom, we are in close and prolonged contact with dust mites. They are present in mattresses, pillows, blankets, carpets, upholstered furniture, curtains, and similar fabrics. We offer a fast, simple, economical test that lets you determine if you have a dust mite problem called Aclotest.
