Your mattress is probably the dirtiest place in your home.
Day after day, year after year, dead skin settles in your bed providing the ideal breeding ground for viruses, mould spores, fungi and especially dust mites. No matter how house proud you are the fact is you are sharing your bed with millions of them greedily feasting on your dead skin.
Mite excrement in your face! Dust mite excrement is microscopic and contains the chemical guanine triggering asthma and other allergic reactions and can be the cause of lifelong allergies.
Mattress protectors and bedding will not save you from dust mite infestation. When you move on the mattress it acts like a bellows and puffs up minute particles of guanine which easily pass through protectors and bedding landing on your face and skin. We breathe it in and that’s where all the problems can begin.
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms you may be reacting to dust mites. If you are not, then exposure to dust mite can cause allergic reactions to begin.
