Dust Mites Are NOT Your Friends

Did you know that dust mites thrive in warm, humid conditions such as in your AC ducts, bedding and carpets? According to Local Allergists, in the Los Angeles area nearly one in four homes contain extremely high levels of dust mite allergens.

Add to that the fact that a shocking 20 million Americans, or 10 percent of the population, are seriously affected by dust mite allergies every year, and it’s easy to see we’re facing a real dust mite epidemic.

Dust mite feces and decaying bodies are responsible for our allergic reactions. Allergic reactions can range from very mild to severe. If you have existing air sensitivities, your reaction could be even more intense.

Routine cleaning of your air ducts, bedding and carpeting are your front line defenses against dust mite allergens.
