Dust Mite

We offer a Specialist Dust Mite and Allergy control service in Cardiff, Newport and the  surrounding areas.

Dust Mites are microscopic little creatures that live by their millions in our homes.
They eat human and animal skin scales (dander) and they thrive in the warm, humid conditions that we create in our homes.

Dust Mites are found everywhere in the home – in bedding, carpets, soft furnishings and clothing and particularly within the mattress.

A mattress is the ideal habitat for them -  it’s warm, dark and moist (each of us sweats about ½ litre of sweat a night) and the mites can eat our shed skin.

    Dust Mites produce an allergen which all medical research shows, is harmful to everyone’s health to a greater or lesser degree. It’s not the dust mites themselves that are harmful to us, but the protein in their droppings.

    Each dust mite produces about 20 droppings a day. We then inhale the microscopic droppings as we lie in bed, tossing and turning and it also goes in our eyes and mouth. Think very fine talcum powder and the mattress acting as a giant bellows.

    Many people may not think that dust mites are a cause for much concern, but research shows that they are the largest contributor to allergies, second only to pollen. House dust mite allergy is extremely common. 85% of people who suffer from asthma are allergic to dust mites.

    Dust mites are also associated with eczema, allergic rhinitis and a host of other ailments (see below).
    Everyone would benefit from reducing the dust mite populations in their homes.

    It would be impossible to remove every single dust mite but, reducing their numbers and then taking measures to control them in future has been shown to significantly improve any allergic symptoms and to be beneficial to health.

    Ailments associated with dust mite allergy:

    • Asthma
    • Eczema
    • Rhinitis
    • Sinusitis
    • Sneezing
    • Itchy skin
    • Nasal congestion
    • Head aches
    • Depression
    • Wheezing
    • Tight chest
    • Sinus aches
    • Rasping voice
    • Dry, unproductive cough
    • Feelings of lethargy
    • Mental fatigue
    • Irritated, watery or reddish eyes
    • Frequent upward rubbing of the nose in children
    • Puffy, swollen or discoloured eyelids

    If you or anyone that you know, suffers from one or more of these conditions especially first thing in the morning, then dust mite control will be of benefit.
