You're sleeping with dust mites, how many is debatable, what they do to you isn't. Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201, says they won't kill you. But dust mites can make your respiratory life a nightmare. Those morning itchy eyes? It's those dust mites. Dust contains a lot of dead skin cells from humans and pets, which makes a feast for dust mites. Dust mites like moist, humid environments- which is what your bed feels like when you're sleeping in it. Your pillows too.It's impossible to eliminate them totally but here are a few things Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201 recommends to do to lessen the dust mites effects on us.
Put a dust mite cover around your mattress and pillows. They're available in unbleached, undyed organic cotton.
Use hot water when washing your sheets, pillowcases, blankets, and other bed linens every week. Comforters and pillows should be washed every three months. If they won't fit into your washing machine, take them to a laundromat and have them laundered there. Pillows should also be replaced every year. An easy way to keep track of when you bought these pillows, is to write the date you purchased them on the tag that's attached to the pillow in permanent marker.
Vacuum your mattress, box spring, and headboard at least once per month. More often if you want. Use a vacuum with a genuine HEPA filter.
Stop snacking in bed. Dust mites feast on your crumbs. Find another place to eat. A table, a tray, anything that keeps the crumbs off the floor and away from the dust mites.
Keep a dust free bedroom. All that dust underneath your bed contains phthalates, alkylphenols, flame retardants, and various other pesticides. They got there from the residues of common cleaning and air-freshening products, PVC plastic and other stuff.Phthalates alone have been shown to accumulate in the body, disrupt the reproductive systems in people, and contribute t asthma and other respiratory diseases. Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il 60201, says in shore,household dust is something nobody should be breathing.
