Millions of people from all over the globe suffer from allergies. Sadly, most of the homes of these allergy sufferers have never had the carpets and furnishings cleaned for allergens. Many of these families are not even aware that they need allergy treatments for their home.
Since most household allergies come from dust mites, it is vital to rid the home of as many of them as possible. A few simple steps can help ensure that you do this efficiently, and prevent the allergens from becoming a problem again.
Most people will wash their sheets and pillowcases at least once every week, but many have never had their mattresses cleaned by a professional. Many of those people do not even know that the service of cleaning mattresses even exists. When mattresses are not cleaned on a regular basis, they become an excellent breeding ground for dust mites, which leads to many allergy problems.
Allergy Cleaning removes Dust Mites
The dust mites which live in mattresses and other household upholsteries will thrive in the dead skin cells which are left in your home. These skin cells are shed by humans and pets. Since there are no diseases which come directly from dead skin cells, most people consider them to be harmless, however, they contribute to the expansion of a home’s dust mite population. Dust mites can cause serious reactions to anyone who is allergic to their faeces, as well as asthmatics and others with breathing problems.
Knowing that dust mites thrive in warm, moist surroundings, you can see why it is very important to have mattresses, upholsteries, and carpets cleaned on a regular basis. Most mattresses will have as many as ten million of these creatures living in them at one time. Literally thousands of them can fit on one of your fingernails. Unlike bedbugs, they do not bite humans, but their faeces causes the allergy issues.
