Interesting facts about dust mites
Dust mites are too small to be seen by the naked human eye. They measure only 0.2-0.3mm in length and have translucent bodies. Dust mites feed on organic material such as flakes of shed human skin. One person shed enough skin in a few days to keep 1 million dust mites alive and happy. Our lovable pets like cats and dogs create even more dander for the mites to feed on.
Dust mites are harmless, but…
It does not sound good, but we share our beds with anything between 100,000 to 10 million dust mites if they are not controlled. Luckily the do not bite, sting or hurt one. It is when we breathe in their excrement that causes the allergies like asthma and coughing. One day’s excrement of a dust mite weights 6 times their body weight.
And dust mites love Brisbane & surroundings
Brisbane and surroundings is a preferable area as they prefer warm, humid environments. Dust mites live in our beds and in dust collecting carpet.
They got their name because they eat dust and dead skin cells. Their residue then becomes airborne with dust and causes allergies when people inhale the particles in the air. Children and the elderly are mostly affected by dust mites.
Dust mites are active throughout the year in your bed
During the colder winter months we close our homes and the concentration of the dust and faeces increases in our homes as there are less ventilation in the house. Most dust mites are found in beds and bedding, because we provide a good meal for them when we revisit our beds every day. The worst is that we spend more than a quarter of our life in bed, together with these nasty creatures.
Dust mites can cause nasty problems
In some people the affect might be minor like the irritation of the respiratory passages which causes nasal congestion. This will give effect to symptoms like a running nose, hay fever, sneezing or coughing. Blocked sinuses will eventually give result in headaches which can be chronic if the cause of the problem is not treated.
Difficult to detect dust mites, but there are treatments
Due to the fact that they cannot be seen, one would suspect a dust mite problem if one of the above symptoms exists. The fact that they are so common, makes it unnecessary to test for them, as they would probably be present in a sample.
Measures that you can take to control dust mites
Something common and easy to do, but we do not often vacuum our beds. Normally we would vacuum our carpets once a week, and it would be a good idea to do the same with our mattresses. Because they are so tiny and light, millions of them can be removed this way.
Before vacuuming, always dust the window sills, skirtings and areas that keeps dust. Bedding should be washed regularly in very hot water.
A more controversial suggestion is not to make your bed in the morning. Kingston University in London has made a study and have shown that if your sheets are exposed to air, so that they can dry out, the will be a considerable reduction in the amount of dust mites in your bed. There you go – now you have a good reason not to make your bed.
