Unseen Danger- The House Dust Mite, Brookhaven, Pa and Surrounding Areas (610) 874.1022

Spring is in the air here in Brookhaven PA, and The House Dust Mite might be lingering in your home too.

The causes and effects of allergies have long been known and can be a serious health threat.  Still allergies seem to be on the increase.  They are an unwanted response of the immune system resulting in inflammation of the eyes and nose (rhinitis), lungs (asthma) and skin (eczema).  It is estimated that allergies affect some 40% of the population at some time and the percentage is on the increase.

One controllable culprit in the battle with allergens is the house dust mite, a microscopic insect which is found in our indoor environment.  The bedroom is particularly vulnerable for allergy suffers as we spend one third of our life in bed and a good deal of the other time dressing and preparing for the day.  We shed skin scales (which is food to the dust mite) into our sleeping environment collected by the linens, pillows, mattress and carpet.  All these areas are ideal breeding grounds for the dust mite.

It is the house dust mite waste, and not the mites themselves, that triggers asthmatic and allergic attacks.  Research has revealed this trigger is a microscopic protein in the mite excrement called Der  p1.

The mites’dropping are coated in an enzymatic slimy substance, which after drying becomes mixed with other particles forming household dust.  Mites live on carpets, pillows, upholstered furniture, blankets, mattresses, and even in the air handling system.
