Dust mites are far too small to be seen with the human eye. Dust
mites and their feces are the single most common allergen that
people inhale in their home. As microscopic animals, they are
found in dust which produce a common allergen.
Dust mites, although much smaller, belong to the same family
as spiders and ticks. Over 22 million Americans are allergic to
mite residue that is small enough to be airborne. When disturbed
such as vacuuming with a standard vacuum or sweepign with a broom
on hard surfaces, they and their fecal dust may remain airborne for up
to 10 minutes in your home's interior air. Even walking across your
carpet will disturb their fecal pellets. The membrane that covers the
outside of these pellets-doesn't  break down quickly - which means that
the pellets may keep their allergy causing potential for months.













Dust mites are most commonly found in textured upholstery,
mattresses and long or loose pile carpeting. Their population
increases and decreases with seasonal changes due to the rising
and falling of both temperature and humidity.
There are over 50,000 species of dust mites and most species
greatly increase their reproduction rate and thrive during period
of high (over 70%) humidity.

To control dust mites it is highly recommended that humidity
be controlled in your home. Rid your carpets in your home of
dust mites, dust mite fecal matter and residue, settled airborne
pollution contaminants, microorganisms and other harmful
allergens with a thorough carpet cleaning.
