Allergic To Your Own Home?

Written by on 16 Nov 2011

Who are you sharing your bed with?

It could be with up to 2million dust mites….and their waste!!!

The household dust mite is not anybody’s first choice of a bed mate but there might be 2 million of them hiding in your mattress ready to snuggle up when your fast asleep. Its a common misconception that the irritation that dust mites cause is due to their bite but in actual fact it’s their waste that people are allergic to.

Recently the news had been full of stories about the current ‘Dust Mite Epidemic‘ in Britain. Take Gabrielle Crabb and his story on how he copes with his allergy and comments from the NHS about dust mite allergies as just two examples. Allergy UK estimates that a massive 12 million people in the UK are now allergic to their own homes with the majority of these allergies caused by the tiny dust mite.

This figure has not been helped by the fact that in modern homes dust mites have thrived, especially those incubated by central heating with little ventilation. Usually dust mites can be found hiding in the bedroom, where a single mattress may contain more than two million dust mites!

The situation has become so severe that doctors revealed plans last month to expose babies to dust mites in an attempt to halt the rising issue. Experts hope that exposing babies to the common bug will strengthen the defenses of the next generation.

Get to know the Dust Mites Living With You

The house dust mite is nearly impossible to see without magnification meaning that nearly 100,000 of them can live in a single square yard of carpet! They primarily feed on dead skin shed by humans and other animals but they can also absorb moisture from the air. A single dust mite produces about 20 waste droppings each day, each containing a protein to which many people are allergic. Disgusting!

Indian sandstone floor

Really impressed with Rhinorocks - remarkable transformation on our sandstone floors which we had not taken care of and it looked very tatty. Looks great now and will also be much easier to clean and maintain in future with the finish Tom and Martin applied. Fair price for a great job. We would definitely recommend.Thanks again guys.Ed and Martina

Slate Floor Clean

Thank you to Tom and Martin who have rescued my slate floor. It was in an awful state and I didn’t think it was possible get such a result. They worked so hard, were friendly and extremely professional and provided an excellent service going well beyond what I expected of them. I can’t thank them enough and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I’ll definitely be giving them a call again to help me maintain my floor in the future now I know what a great job they do. Many thanks.
