Damaging Effects Of Dust Mites

Dust mites are microscopic, insect-like pests that generate some of the most common indoor allergens that can trigger allergic reactions and asthma in many people. Millions of dust mites can live in the bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets or curtains in homes, hotels and all types of multi-bed facilities.


Dust mites are not parasites. They don't bite, sting or burrow into our bodies. The harmful allergens they create come from their faecal pellets and body fragments. Dust mites are nearly everywhere. Roughly, four out of five homes have detectable levels of dust mite allergens.
