Mites live in virtually all mattresses, carpets and bedding. They are one of the main culprits in the development of asthma, conjunctivitis, dermatitis and allergies kinds. Besides them, in the beds, blankets and pillows you collect a huge amount of skin cells, and large amounts of fluids in the form of sweat, saliva and moisture given off during respiration. In fact, these are the prerequisites for the development of domestic mites.

If mites are not your favorite “pets”, follow these tips:

Experts recommend covering mattresses and pillows with impermeable covers that can be washed weekly in hot water (between 55 C and 70 C). Pillows, mattresses and quilts must have a faux wool or synthetic fluff. They are more hygienic - pliable to be washed and dried. You can also use special protective covers from extremely dense tissue to create a barrier against germs.

It is better to leave your mattress in direct sunlight for several hours. This will be lethal for germs. Your chairs and sofas are more problematic. There is no way to put them in the washing machine. The best thing you can do is to vacuum them. If your furniture is much worn, you’d better change it. Mattresses must be replaced in every ten years, and pillows in every five years!

Carpets are a very good shelter for mites, so choose linoleum, wood or laminate flooring in the bedroom. Another important condition for getting rid of mites is to perform carpet cleaning once a day.

Children are the most susceptible to allergies caused by dust mites, so buy your kids toys that can be cleaned regularly.

It sounds incredible, but mattresses increase their weight after 10 years of use - because of the accumulation of human hair, bodily secretions, fungi and their spores, chemicals, dust mites, insect parts, etc. Because of this, the bed we sleep on can be dangerous for our good health, especially if you have a disease such as asthma and certain allergies.
