House Dust Mites Cleaning Services in Hemel Hempstead
The dust-mite is about 0.3mm long. Ten dust mites could fit onto this full stop.
The dust-mite is a worldwide problem. The dust-mite and the excrement they produce are one of the most widespread causes of allergies. Homes and offices with their improved insulation and controlled, warm temperatures have become excellent breeding grounds for these creatures. Human skin scales, animal dander and other organic particles that form dust (found in abundance where we live) are the main food source for dust-mites.
Dust-mite excrement is held together initially by a layer of slime within carpet and upholstery fibres. It gradually dries out allowing the faecal matter to fall apart into very tiny particles. This allergenic dust becomes airborne and is inevitably inhaled as we breathe. Dust-mite excrement is a trigger for Asthma, Eczema, Nasal Inflammation and other skin and respiratory conditions.
Warm, humid conditions promote mould fungi, mildew and bacteria. This is actually all around us in microscopic amounts. Formed from moisture and bacteria from perspiration and central heating, the growth of these spores in carpets soft furnishings and bedding play a vital part in the food-chain of the dust-mite in the form of nourishment and a digestive aid. The levels, if unchecked can lead to unpleasant odours and illness. Millions of spores also become airborne and are within the air we breathe. Links are being formed between this kind of infestation and certain lung diseases.
