Paul Cochrane at the Indoor Air Quality Network recently posted this video about dust mites and their contributions to allergy and asthma attacks.
Did you know…there can be as many as 100 dust mites in 1 gram of household dust?
If you have a dust allergy, it’s probably the dust mites that are the culprits.
What can you do about dust mites?
The video had some great advice:
Launder your bedding once a week
Replace feather pillows with synthetic
Vacuum with a well-filtered machine
But if you need to kill all the dust mites, not just clean them up, heat treatment is an effective method of eliminating dust mites from your indoor environment. Check out the information at Alliance Environmental Group about heat and dust mites!
