If you are suffering from allergies, then the most important thing that you can do is find the trigger to alleviate the symptoms. Did you know that seemingly invisible compounds in your home could be triggering your allergy symptoms? Dust mites are one of the most common triggers for people with asthma and allergies, but most people are unaware of the severity of dust mites in their homes.

The Cause of Allergy Symptoms

When your immune system reacts to a foreign substance in the environment, it can result in uncomfortable symptoms: running nose, sneezing, cough, itchy throat and nose, facial pain and pressure, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, chest pain and tightness, and more.

The only way to alleviate these symptoms is by eliminating the compounds that are causing the immune system reaction. Certain cleaning strategies can be used to help with the elements in the environment that are triggering your allergies.

How Home Cleaning Helps with Dust Mites

A professional home cleaning service can be a great way to tackle the dust mite problem in your home. These are the most effective strategies to get rid of dust mites:

  • We use HEPA certified S-class allergy filtration vacuums, which trap particles as small as a dust mite.
  • We pick up and wipe with a damp cloth to trap dust mites carried in the dust.
  • It is important to change bed linens weekly to keep at bay.
  • It is important to wash pillows too.

Consider this: Remember how light a mattress was when you purchased it? Now compare the weight of the mattress when you got rid of it years later. The additional weight is due to the buildup of dead skin and dust mites that collect in the mattress over the years. Purchasing a good mattress cover can help you protect it.

Consistency with Dust Mite Cleaning

You can’t avoid dust mites altogether. But you can be proactive to clean them up in your home. These deep cleaning services need to happen regularly so that you can avoid the build-up of dust mites over time.
