Did you know that most of the truly harmful and deadly contaminates in your home are those which cannot be seen with the naked eye. As many people already know, the common household dust mite is the real reason you have to clean frequently and treat certain areas of your home with an Anti-Allergan. As you know, we spend most of our time indoors, usually at home, and one third of our lives in bed. Additionally, we shed a layer of skin every few days. This dead skin is a great food source for dust mites, and just like any other living being, dust mites leave behind a lot of waste.
A dust mite molts several times during it''s lifetime, producing 200 times it''s weight in waste. It will also lay over 300 eggs producing even more dust mites doing the same thing. Each mite produces 40 to 100 faecal pellets per day. These are coated in an enzymatic slimy substance, which after drying become mixed with other particles creating 70% of the dust in your home.
Since dust contains such harmful contaminates, you can just imagine the effect this has on all of us, not to mention those with asthma, emphysema and other breathing problems.
Did you know that there are over 2 million dust mites living in your average home, and that number continues to grow the longer you wait to clean and treat a home.
