Over 20 million Americans suffer from what are called "indoor allergies." The major trigger of indoor allergies is the common dust mite, a microscopic creature which spends its’ life eating dead skin, reproducing and generating waste products. It is their waste products, not the mites themselves, which cause allergic reactions, including Asthma, Eczema, Rhinitis, headaches, and even depression. Dust mites are in our beds in our home, apartment, dorm room, hotel, and any other place where people sleep or spend considerable time like our favorite easy chair, or couch.
HEPA Cleaning and Sanitizing of mattresses and furnishings is recommended to help prevent:
- Rhinitis (stuffy nose)
- Itchy red eyes
