Dust Mites: What Can You Do?

It's almost the weekend and my laundry hamper is calling my name. Can't you hear it? Yours probably is, too. I have a question for you, though. How often do you wash your bedding?

Dust mites are a fact of life. We try not to think about their number, their ubiquitousness, their eating habits, but they are there--in our sofas, pillows, blankets. And what they leave behind can cause respiratory problems, even asthma attacks in the sensitive.

What is the one best thing you can do to prevent dust mites from being a problem?

Wash your bedding frequently and dry it on a high temperature. Don't forget the pillows and duvets.

Dust mites and their droppings may be the biggest allergen in your home. Vacuum, especially under the couch cushions, and keep your bedroom linens clean.

For sensitive people, it is a great idea to get a fresh start and Alliance can help. Heat treatment for your whole house kills off all dust mites, giving you a chance to get into a maintenance routine that can work wonders for you and your family's health. Talk to an Alliance representative today!
