Dust Mites - The Invisible Enemy
Did you know . . .
Most harmful and deadly contaminates in
your home are invisible to the naked eye!
It is widely known that the common
household dust mite is the reason you
need to clean frequently & treat certain
areas of your home with an anti-allergen.
We spend most of our time indoors, usually in our homes & about a third of our lives in bed!
Skin! We shed a layer of skin every few days & this dead skin is a good food source for dust mites. Like any other living being, dust mites leave behind waste matter.
A dust mite molts several times during its' life, producing over 200 times it's own weight in waste alone! In fact, a single dust mite will produce 40 - 100 faecal pellets every day. These pellets are coated in an enzymatic slimy
substance, which after drying become mixed with other particles creating 70% of the dust
in your home.
It also lays over 300 eggs, which go on to produce even more dust mites, which all do the
same thing. Since dust contains such harmful contaminates, you can just imagine the
effect this has on all of us, not to mention those with asthma, emphysema & other breathing
Over 2 million dust mites live in the average home & that number continues to grow the longer you wait to clean & treat a home.
