Dust mites often build up in your home. That said, it’s easy to miss them because of how busy life can be. Since dust is such a common allergy, you need to be vigilant of how it can get into the air circulated throughout your home, primarily through the return vents and then are pushed out through the supply vents.. With summer temperatures soaring, you’ll be leaning on your home’s HVAC unit more and more, which can make any problems worse.
Some Quick Facts about Dust Mites
Without a doubt, dust mites are the most common trigger for allergies and asthma problems that could affect you and your family. The mites leaving their limbs and droppings around your home is what triggers the allergies, even if we don’t notice them right away. Typical symptoms of allergic reactions include sneezing, coughing, postnasal drip, runny nose, itchy, and irritated eyes; other symptoms include stuffy nose, itchy throat, and itchy skin.
Plus, asthma can make you feel even worse. You’ll struggle to breathe, your chest will feel tight, and you’ll notice a whistling or wheezing sound every time you exhale. Because of coughing, wheezing, and trouble breathing, you might also see you’ll have trouble sleeping.
Why Do Dust Mites Follow Us Around?
If you have a large family or a group of pets, then you might notice that your dust problem is much worse than usual. Dust mites especially enjoy areas with higher levels of moisture and humidity. It may surprise you just how many bugs can lurk inside your home. For instance, there could be up to 100,000 only in one square yard of carpet. Now take a minute to think about how much carpet you have in your home and how often you have those carpets cleaned. Mattresses and pillows can be loaded with even more.
