Over 70 million Americans suffer from allergies, asthma, or sinusitis. If you’re one of those people, you know how miserable they can be. Dust mites and pet allergens found indoors are one of the leading causes of these diseases. People with mild allergies can develop very serious, chronic, and even life-threatening illnesses if they continue to be exposed to these allergens.
Dust mites are microscopic creatures that are invisible to the naked eye. (7,000 can fit on a fingernail!) It is the dust mite feces that causes the development and aggravation of allergies. A dust mite will produce 200 times its own body weight in feces during its short lifetime! Mattresses contain 60% of the dust mites found in the home. We spend up to one-third of our lives in the bedroom and are exposed to this highly potent allergen for long periods of time.
Over 15% of the U.S. population is allergic to pets. Many are unaware that they suffer from pet allergies. Symptoms include watery and itching eyes, hives, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. Over 75% of families with pet allergies don’t take their physician’s advice to remove the pets from their home.
Cleaning your home isn’t enough. No matter how spotless your home, it’s impossible to clean away dust mites. Most families can’t bear to part with their family pets.
One way to address the dust mite and pet allergen problem is to treat carpets, mattresses, upholstery, rugs and bedding with an allergy relief treatment that changes the shape of the allergen proteins, making them unrecognizable to the body, which prevents them from causing an allergic reaction. Products used for treatment that are hypoallergenic, non-toxic, dye and perfume-free, contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phosphates, or other hazardous materials and are biodegradable and environmentally safe are the best to treat these areas. These products are odor free and have been formulated for use around people with allergic illnesses and chemical sensitivities and can be used in homes with children and pets. In some cases, multiple applications may be needed to complete the treatment. Look for a guarantee when determining which treatment plan to use.
If you or your family members are suffering from allergy and asthma symptoms, consider instituting a dust mite and pet allergen treatment program.
