Dust Mite Treatment
Dust mites are disgusting little creatures that survive off shed skin cells from humans and animals. They are in nearly every home in America, but their presence is sure to bring a shudder when you find out that you home is infested.
Green Carpet Brooklyn can remove dust mites from your carpets, rugs, and upholstery to give you peace of mind and rid your home of a major allergen. Call us for dust mite treatment services that can be used on any soft surface in your home!
Identifying Dust Mites in Your Area Rug
It’s impossible to rid your home completely of dust mites, so accept the fact that they are present in your home. At Green Carpet Brooklyn, we’re concerned with lowering their numbers to a point that they do not cause you or a loved one severe allergic reactions.
An allergic reaction to dust mite droppings can include sneezing, itchy eyes, or even a rash in some people. Those with severe allergies and asthma will fair far worse if there is a high level of dust mites in the home.
Dust mite treatment is designed to remove dust mites from carpets, rugs, upholstery, mattresses, and many other areas where these creatures call home.
Professional Dust Mite Rug Treatment
Regular household cleaning will help control dust mites in your home, but the best way to combat dust mites is with professional rug and carpet cleaning!
Steam cleaning is an excellent way to rid carpets and rugs of dust mites, not to mention bed bugs, lice, fleas, and many other pests you’d rather not think about.
Not only is rug steam cleaning effective for killing dust mites, it is also a safe, non-toxic cleaning method for your home. There are no chemicals involved in steam cleaning, so no waste disposal is necessary. You and your family (and pets) can enjoy your freshly cleaned carpets and rugs as soon as they are dry without being exposed to products that can cause allergic reactions themselves!
Green carpet cleaning is especially important in dust mite treatment, so it’s the type of cleaning we will recommend in nearly every instance.
Creating Less Ideal Conditions for Dust Mites
A few things you can do between professional cleanings to discourage dust mites from making your home their home include the following:
- Cover your mattress with a plastic or polyurethane cover that dust mites cannot penetrate.
- Lower the temperature and humidity in your home. Below 70 degrees, dust mites cannot thrive.
- Clean often, washing bed sheets in hot water. Use a damp mop or cloth to remove dust from the floor instead of your trusty dry broom, which will only stir up dust.
- If you’re serious about dust mites, you have the option to remove carpet from your home and replace it with hardwood, tile, or laminate.
