Execution of the Carpet Mites    "But my carpets don’t look dirty” Well, guess what...
Even if you don’t think your carpets and furnishings need to be thoroughly cleaned, they do. On average there are over two million dust mites feeding on dead skin scales in every home! They hide in your carpets, upholstery, rugs, mattress and pillows.

Mites can double their numbers in ten hours and produce ten to twenty pieces of faeces per day. A gram of house dust (approximately half a teaspoon) contains as many as 1000 dust mite, that same gram of dust mite can hold 250,000 of their faecal pellets.

The development of the house dust mite from an egg to an adult takes just three to four weeks. Adults live for about six weeks during which time the female produce forty to eighty eggs. Dust mites survive by eating dead skin cells, which make up to 80% of house dust. They also live off water vapour, which we provide for them through perspiring and breathing, approximately one pint per person per night.

House dust mites are found in virtually all homes, no matter how clean. They live in the dust that accumulates in your carpet fabrics, furniture and bedding.

A primary source of dust mite exposure in the home is in the bedroom, which provides the best conditions of humidity, warmth and food for their growth. The average room can be infested by millions of microscopic dust mites.

They can be present in carpets, upholstered furniture, curtains, mattresses, pillows, blankets and similar fabrics.

Asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis are the three main allergic diseases where the cause of most attacks had been linked to the house dust mite allergen. It is not only the dust mite that causes the problem. The allergen which causes asthma attacks, allergies and eczema is actually a protein found in their droppings and their carcasses. In the average house these allergens get expelled into the air, once airborne dried dust mite droppings are easily inhaled into our airways causing allergic reactions such as wheezing, coughs, itchy eyes, sniffles and in more serious cases, asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis.

The facts are clean every six to eighteen months before traffic lanes begin to appear, your carpets and furnishings will last far longer and much better, any build up of allergens that cause asthma and/or respiratory and allergic problems get removed so you will breathe easier too.
