What are Dust Mites?
Certain allergies are most easily recognized by symptoms such as itchiness, irritated eyes, skin rash and breathing difficulties.
These type of allergies can often be caused by "house dust".
What is House Dust?
It is a combination of very fine particles, so small that they are easily airborne. It may contain fibers from different types of fabrics, cotton lint, feathers, and other stuffing materials, , bacteria, mold and fungus spores (especially in damp areas), food particles, bits of plants and insects.
Discarded human skin cells, dander from cats, dogs, and other animals often make an amazing amount of the dust inside homes.
This is why bedrooms seem particularly dusty.
A discarded skin cell is organic and full of nutrients. Ever notice how dust starts off light in color, then goes grey and eventually black?
This is the skin cell decomposing. A loose skin cell is the perfect platform for many types of bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
Dust mites love old skin cells.
Many allergies are caused when the feces from mites (that's right! ... bug poop!) invade our breathing passages.
For an increasing number of people, our overworked immune systems just cannot cope with millions of these invaders.
The solution is simple. Remove the dust on a regular basis.
