You can’t see it but dust mites are everywhere in your home. Each individual dust mite is microscopic but there are millions that live in homes in Laramie, WY. The good news is you can get rid of them. Here is how:

Here is a little information about dust mites. There are 13 different species of these little critters. Each one is an allergen. They love to live in damp or humid areas of your home where the temperature is around 65-75 degrees. You will often find them in basements or in bedding, furniture and carpet.

The reason that dust mites love to live in bedding, furniture and carpet is because that is where there are comfortable temperatures and because humans spend most of their time there. A human adult sheds about 1.5 grams of skin every single day. The dust mites eat human skin flakes and 1.5 grams can feed nearly one million of them each day.

This means dust mites surround you when you sleep or when you sit on your sofa or recliner. This isn’t fun to think of. Dust mites love to live in carpet too because as you travel around your home your skin flakes drop to the floor for them to eat.

You don’t want dust mites in your home. Their presence can cause allergic reactions. Symptoms of dust mites include itchiness, eye and nose irritation, coughing and headaches. People who suffer from asthma might experience trouble breathing or chest pains in homes that have too many dust mites.

You can reduce the amount of these critters in your home with better ventilation. This will decrease the humidity in your bedroom and living room and other common places you find the little bugs. You should also vacuum regularly and schedule deep carpet cleaning often.
