The Truth about Dust Mites

Do you or your family suffer from:
Sneezing, Itching and Watery Eyes?
Asthma, Wheezing, Chest Congestion?
Skin Rashes, Eczema?

One of the reasons could be down to dust mites!

By some estimates there can be 100,000 dust mites living in a square yard area of carpet in your home.  Females live for about 80 days and lay up to 100 eggs.  Dust mites feed on dead skin cells and flakes.  It is a protein found in the faeces and remains of dead mites that causes allergies.  Yuk!!

Every time someone walks over a carpet, mite dust is spread into the air and will take 2 hours to settle.  Babies and young children are especially at risk.

One solution could be to replace carpets with hardwood flooring as this will limit the build up of dust mites in your home enabling thorough cleaning and removal of mites.
