How To Control Dust Mites & Allergens

Cairns Carpet Cleaning & Cairns Tile, Concrete & Vinyl Floor Cleaning


Dust mites are a common cause of allergies and allergic reactions. They are also a common trigger for asthma attacks. They live in our furniture, carpets and bedding, feeding on the dead skin cells that we shed every day of our lives. Symptoms of a dust mite allergy might include all or some of the following, sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, itchy nose, mouth or throat, itchy red or watery eyes, itchy skin and coughing. For people suffering from asthma dust mites can increase the risk of dangerous asthma attacks, causing difficulty breathing, chest pain, chest tightness, and wheezing, coughing and poor sleep because of breathing difficulties.

While there are prescription and non-prescription medicines designed to help reduce the symptoms of dust mite allergies. Many of the people that suffer from dust mite allergies claim drugs often don’t offer complete relief from their symptoms. For this reason and to limit reliance on drugs and possible side effects, it’s very important to reduce the numbers of dust mites in your home. Being exposed to high levels of dust mites at home, especially during childhood increases the risks of complications now and in later life. Limiting exposure to dust mites and their waste products can dramatically reduce the symptoms and suffering.

Regular vacuuming of carpets, mattresses and upholstery with an HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner will help prevent the build-up of allergens. The HEPA filter will greatly limit the ability for dust mite particles, pollen, mold spores and pet dander from escaping back into the room. Hard floors and surfaces should be mopped and wiped down with wet clothes were possible.
