Dust Mites send 200,000 people a year to the ER!

Last updated 5 years ago

Did you know.....

WebMD reports that "each year, dust mites cause about 200,000 people with asthma to go to the emergency room."

Why is this important for us to know?  Because the biggest haven of dust mites in a person's life is their bedding.  Mattresses, box springs, and especially pillows, harbor millions (even billions) of dust mites.  The person then lays their body and face right on those dust mites for up to 8 hours each day.  This can wreak havoc on anyone with even mild allergy issues.

Customers should purchase mattress and pillow protectors with dust mite barriers for all the beds in their home.  

It is also important to wash sheets and pillowcases once a week, wash comforters and bedspreads once every month or two.  Wash and dry stuffed animals and keep them off the bed.  Also consider replacing wool or feather products with synthetic.

The more you know, the more you grow!
