Dust Mite Allergy

Dust Mite Allergies

Eighty percent of allergy and asthma sufferers test positive for dust mite allergy. Dust mites lurk in carpet and a variety of places, but your bed is the perfect place for dust mites. It is important to protect your bed with allergy bedding to keep dust mites out or trapped inside. Removing dust mites from your bed, carpet, or furniture is tricky, but we recommend that you focus on the bedroom by protecting your bed with allergy bedding and placing an air purifier in the bedroom. Lastly, you should vacuum regularly with a HEPA vacuum cleaner and treat your carpet and laundry to eliminate dust mites.

       Dust Mite Facts

Dust Mite Allergen

Each time you take a step on dirty carpet or lie down on a bed that is not protected by dust mite bedding, a cloud of dust mite allergen rises into the air. Dust mite allergen primarily consists of dust mite fecal pellets. Even though they are microscopic, dust mites are too large to inhale; however, their excrement easily becomes airborne. Dust mite allergen not only irritates the lungs, but it also contains an enzyme that destroys the protective function of the skin.  This leaves your body vulnerable to other allergens and irritants.

Dust Mite Allergy Symptoms

Do you often wake up congested or with a runny nose? Itchy eyes or itchy skin? If you answered yes to any of the above you are likely allergic to dust mites. People who are sensitive to dust mites often experience rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nose and sinuses). Others experience eczema, inflammation of the skin. Many people who have dust mite allergies also suffer from chronic sleep problems.

How to Kill Dust Mites

You can kill dust mites on rugs or stuffed animals by placing the items in the sunlight for a few hours or by storing them in the freezer over night. Unfortunately, you cannot do this with your bed, carpet, or furniture, so you will need to resort to other methods. A first good step is cutting off dust mites from the source of their food, your dead skin cells. Allergy bedding provides a barrier between you and dust mites. This effectively starves dust mites already in your mattress and pillow while trapping the allergen and keeping it away from you while you sleep. The next most effective step is to place an air purifier in the bedroom. A HEPA air purifier will reduce the amount of airborne dust while filtering out and trapping dust mite and other allergens from your indoor air. Lastly, you should vacuum regularly with a HEPA vacuum cleaner and treat your carpet and laundry to eliminate dust mites. This reduces dust, dust mite allergen and other allergens, like pollen, throughout your home.

Allergy Armor Ultra, our highest quality fabric, was recommended by Women's Health magazine as "better than anything else on the market at keeping mites out."

Dust Mite Sprays & Powders

Anti-Allergen Solution is a non-toxic, plant-based formula that denatures allergens on contact. It neutralizes dust mite feces, cockroach droppings, and animal dander by altering the shape of the allergenic proteins. It is safe for people, pets, and the planet; and you can use it on carpet, upholstery, bedding, or in your washing machine.

Allersearch X-Mite is a non-toxic powder that deactivates most household allergens, while our DustMite powder and the premixed DustMite-X spray are specially formulated borate compounds that provides long-lasting control of dust mites in carpet and furniture.

Dust Mite Laundry Products

Standard laundry methods do not kill dust mites. To kill dust mites, the water must be extremely hot, but most people do not use hot wash cycles for every load. De-Mite laundry additive can be used with your regular laundry detergent and will remove dust mite allergens in any temperature water. Allergen Wash is a special detergent for allergy sufferers. It denatures dust mite allergen, pollen, mold, and mildew in any temperature water. Plus, Allergen Wash contains no perfumes, dyes, or other irritating additives. Lastly, we offer Anti-Allergen detergent that works in the same fashion as the Anti-Allergen Solution.

Dust Mite Control

So you have allergy-proofed your bedroom, and now you are ready for the rest of your house. Remember to use a vacuum with a HEPA filter; otherwise, whenever you vacuum, you are simply stirring up allergens and not actually capturing them. For those who are extremely allergic to dust mites, we recommend a Miele vacuum cleaner. With a sealed system and HEPA filtration, Miele has long placed emphasis and been recognized for superior cleaning and air filtration. Vacuum attachments help eliminate dust in hard-to-reach spots like ceiling fan blades and blinds. Electrostatic dust cloths allow you to effectively dust without using harsh chemicals that can make your allergies worse. Finally, vapor steam cleaning will kill dust mites and germs. The Reliable T1 Steamboy steam mop works great for sanitizing smooth floors and comes with a carpet glide attachment that you can use on carpeting.
