Dust Mites Your Mattress

Dust Mites love your skin flakes, sweat, and all body secretion. Dust Mites are only less than a millimeter long and for the most part you really can’t even see them with the naked eye. They are so small they can actually penetrate through your sheets and live their life happily in your mattress.

Dust Mites can get into your bed by your clothes and pets. Do you have a four legged furry friend that sleeps with you? If one of these dust mites is a female they will start to lay eggs in your mattress and well you know what happens from there? That’s why it’s extremely important to have your mattresses thoroughly cleaned every 6 Months. A cleaner mattress prevents this from happening. Mark It Clean can help and we have experienced technicians and top of the line equipment to clean your mattresses right. You can call Mark It Clean at 562-726-2929 for a free estimate and to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.

Dust Mites eat our dead skin cells. We shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells a day so this is prime eating for those little pesky dust mites. Your body and mattress has the right temperature and humidity for them to survive. They will actually just suck moisture out of the air. I know they sound like a sci-fi movie monster.

The more air pockets that a mattress has it will attract more of the dead skin cells and dirt. So when this accumulates over time you are setting yourself up for an infestation. That’s why it’s important to keep mattresses clean so that there isn’t a build-up of dirt and skin cells because it will just attract these critters even more.

Some experts say foam mattresses are even better for these awful things. They don’t actually go down very far into the mattress because the top of the mattress holds more heat. No matter what having any sort of bug sleeping where you sleep isn’t ideal. Oddly enough dust mites really don’t harm you unless you are allergic to them. Even if you get an awful infestation it isn’t like they are biting you it’s actually just an awful odor that comes from the mattress. I mean having an awful odor coming from your mattress isn’t pleasant either. The proteins from the dust mites feces is what actually causes allergic reactions. So, if someone is allergic to dust mites they can get a runny nose, watery eyes, and sometimes people can actually have asthma attacks.

Routine mattresses cleaning will help in preventing an unwanted infestation. At least 10% of the human population and approximately 80% of allergy sufferers are allergic to these awful pests. One sign that you may have dust mites is that you wake up with congestion, a runny nose, watery eyes, itching, or sneezing. A gram of dust contains as many as 1,000 dust mites and each egg-laying female can increase the population by 25 or 30 new mites per week. Your mattress can house one million and ten million
dust mites. Dust Mites population peaks during hot months. You can buy HEPA filtration and dust mite allergy covers to help prevent dust mites and those can be bought through Amazon.

Some prevention tips is frequently washing bedding, having routine mattress cleanings every 6 Months at least, vacuum your mattress weekly, and using air purifies are said to help as well. Dust mites thrive at 75-80% humidity and cannot live in environments where humidity levels are below 50%.
