Did you know that The Lung Association reports that controlling allergies and asthma begins at home.
By reducing the allergens around your home that trigger attacks, you can breathe easier and reduce your susceptibility to future episodes.
When it comes to allergies, there are thousands of irritants that can potentially cause allergy and asthma attacks, but researchers estimate that at least 80% of these attacks are triggered by one common culprit: Dust mite feces. Yuck!
Have you ever seen a dust mite up close? Chances are you wouldn’t. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that lurk about your home unseen. When magnified, however, these itty, bitty insects look like spiders!
Seven thousand of these creatures can fit on a single fingernail. Up to two hundred million dust mites can infest your home at any given time, and they can double their population in ten hours. But this isn’t the real problem, the trouble is each dust mites can produce up to 40 pieces of feces a day and it is a protein in this refuse that research reveals causes most allergy and asthma attacks.
Carpeting, furniture, mattresses, pillows and stuffed animals serve as breeding grounds for dust mites and are littered with their dead bodies and waste. In fact, it’s estimated that at least one-tenth of the weight of your two year old pillow is dust mite feces.
To get all the dirt, allergens, chemicals and other pollutants out, major carpet manufacturers recommend one cleaning method over all the others—hot water extraction, like Victoria Carpet Care uses. A shampooer that you rent from the grocery store can’t even begin to deliver the same results.
