Even though they are invisible to the eye as they scuttle to and fro, dust mites are all around our homes. They can have a negative impact on your health and contribute to the level of dust on surfaces. This undesirable housemate must be kept under control by regular cleaning.
Dust mites are found in every home, and these tiny creatures live off the human skin cells that we all shed. In return, they excrete waste continually and it is these excretions that cause health problems. As a dust mite loves average levels of moisture and humidity, they will happily set up base in a family home on areas such as mattresses, bedding, furniture, soft toys and any soft furnishings that come into contact with your skin on an ongoing basis.
They can cause asthma and other breathing problems, as the excretion irritates air passages leading to respiratory problems. As bedding, mattresses and pillows are some of the best breeding grounds for the dust mite, you can often experience these breathing difficulties at night and not in the day.
To keep them at bay you need to vacuum regularly and change the vacuum cleaner bag often, especially if you have young children crawling round.
