People with allergies know there are plenty of problems lurking around every corner, and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America works hard to educate and inform people about everything allergen. This includes dust mites.

Dust mites are close relatives of the spider and live in virtually all parts of the world. Microscopic, they cannot be seen with a naked eye and normally only with a microscope.

As a general rule, it is not the mites that cause problems. Much like pets and the proteins in pet saliva cause issues with allergies, dust mites themselves are harmless. It is the dead mites along with their waste that  gives so many people issues with their allergies.

Common symptoms are much like any symptom with allergies – headache, sneezing, stuffy nose and the like. More serious symptoms often lead to doctor visits for allergy medications.

Carpet and pets are the most common cause of dust mites, but even hardwood floors with rugs can harbor them. As much as we would like, we cannot completely remove dust mites, but they can be controlled.

Clean Pros Carpet Cleaning is your solution to dust mites. We have the cleaning equipment that pulls stubborn mites, dead mites and dead skin, their food source, from the carpet. Between cleanings there are a few things you can do to keep the dust mites at bay.

Keep the humidity below 50 percent;

  • Do not let pets in carpeted rooms;
  • Use or buy a vacuum with a HEPA filter;
