Are Dust Mites Ruining Your Good Night’s Sleep?
Dust mite allergy is an allergic reaction to tiny bugs that commonly live in house dust, furniture and mattresses. Dust mites are tiny, eight-legged creatures, so microscopic that 7,000 of them can fit on your fingernail. These mites live off of the skin cells that people shed. Then they produce dust mite feces, up to 200 times their own body weight’s worth in their short lifetimes. These dust mite droppings/feces are the cause of allergy problems for many people.

Signs of dust mite allergy include those common to hay fever, such as sneezing and runny nose. Many people with dust mite allergy also experience signs of asthma, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing. 60% of the dust mites found in your home are contained in your mattresses. In fact, there can be millions of mites in a single mattress. That thought does not make for a good night’s sleep, and it is not appealing to most, but unfortunately, it is a fact of reality.
