What Are Dust Mites?
Dust mites are microscopic, insect-like pests that generate some of the most common indoor substances or allergens that can trigger allergic reactions and asthma in many people. Hundreds of thousands of dust mites can live in the bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets or curtains of your home. They feed on the dead human skin cells found in dust.
Who Should Be Concerned about Dust Mites?
Chronic, ongoing exposure to dust mites at home can dramatically impact the health of people and increase the susceptability to asthma and related allergies. These allergens cause an immune system response, known as allergic rhinitis. A dust mite allergy can range from mild to severe. A mild case may cause an occasional runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. In severe cases, the condition is ongoing, or chronic, resulting in persistent sneezing, cough, congestion, facial pressure or severe asthma attack.
Where Do Dust Mites Come From?
Dust mites occur naturally and can appear in nearly all homes. Humidity is the most important factor in determining whether a house has high concentrations of dust mites. Dust mites do not drink water like we do; they absorb moisture from the air.
Where do dust mites reside?
Dust mite allergens settle within minutes into dust or fabrics, such as pillows, bedding or mattresses or upholstered furniture, which serve as nests. Most exposure to dust mite allergens occurs while sleeping and when dust is disturbed during bed-making or other movements.
