The Dust Mites Are Coming! The Dust Mites Are Coming!
Did you know that a poorly maintained air conditioning system is a leading cause of indoor allergy issues? Did you also know that you can effectively fight indoor allergies with AC service? Okay, maybe you did. Still, we have a sneaking suspicion that this image may put it in a whole new perspective! Ladies and gentlemen, take a good look at one of the most prevalent and numerous of all uninvited house guests, the common House Dust Mite.
He’s pretty ugly, isn’t he? What’s more, he tends to enjoy roaming freely around your home with a small army of his closest friends. Do you know why he likes it so much there? Well, for one, the Dust Mite loves finding a nice warm and cozy place to relax – like within a luxuriously dirty air filter within a poorly maintained air conditioner. Once they’re safely tucked in, they get right down to business, and your dust mite population quickly multiplies. Another reason he loves your home so much is the 24 hour buffet you provide. Dust Mites feast on dead skin cells provided by you, your pets, and your family, found all throughout your home. Are you starting to feel your skin crawl yet?
Dust Mite Fecal Matter… Where?
Don’t worry – they’ll never munch on you directly. Dust mites are not parasitic. They won‘t bite, sting or attempt to lodge themselves under our skin and into our bodies. The trouble caused by Dust Mites is due to the allergen created from their feces and body parts. This allergen can come to exist in many places around the home, such as the pillow you rest your head upon each night. That’s right – traces of Dust Mite fecal matter upon your pillow. Doesn’t just the thought of it make you shudder?!
What to Do, What to Do.
As one of the leading culprits behind indoor allergy issues, the common House Dust Mite is one of the most unwelcome house guests around. It’s estimated that about 20 million people suffer from Dust Mite allergies. Just what’s a sneezy, itching homeowner to do? How do you defend yourself and your family from this tiny, filthy creature? The answer is surprisingly simple. The best thing you can do to prevent dust mites from overtaking your home is to destroy their favorite place to cozy up and take residence; the dust, dirt and grime within an old, unchanged air filter. That’s right. Take back your home by destroying theirs. Change the air filter – and often! You will also want to make sure you have your HVAC system regularly cleaned and maintained. Once you’ve disposed of their comfortable domicile, we certainly don’t want them discovering a new place to take up secondary residence! Remember, if you are the Dust Mite allergy sufferer, you will want to be sure to leave all AC cleaning and filter changes to someone else.
