THE HOUSE DUST MITE

Living in decaying dead skin flakes, with eight legs shaped liked a turtle are too small to been seen with the naked eye.

Survival doesn’t only depend on the amount of dust but the humidity in house and their are very few houses without them.

Female dust mites will lay between 25 to 50 eggs and will produce every 3 months, thriving on humidity of the house living for 3 to 4 months.

Our waste product (skin) the dust mite digests is what we become allergic to but the dust mite will produce around 20 droppings per day everywhere it goes.  Each of these droppings holds around 10-12 sub pellets that are about 2-10 micron in size and contain their leftover enzymes.

Cleaning your carpets and upholstery by a qualified NCCA member on a regular basis will significantly reduce the risk to your family, prevention is better than a cure.  Protecting against the effects of dust mites will also create a barrier against most household soils and spills not allowing them to get hold on your valuable furnishings and carpets
