Rid Your Home of Dust Mites and Bed Bugs


Dust mites are tiny living organisms, which are impossible for someone to detect with bare eyes. In order to detect them one must use a microscope. They belong to the category of arthropod-arachnoid. The most important and most well-known species in Europe are Dermatophagoides Pteronyssinus and Dermatophagoides Farina.

Dust mites are microscopic organisms, invisible to the eye, that thrive in furry surfaces like carpets, mattresses, pillows or blankets. As they feed on dead human skin cells, on dandruff and on hair, they are always in close proximity to us. These pose many different health hazards, from poor quality of sleep and allergies to asthma, heart issues and lung failure.

Dust Mite and Bed Bug Infestation Management 

What measures should be followed to reduce the existence of mites in the environment:

  • Humidity in the house should be between <50% or lower and this can be succeeded through a thorough ventilation process of the house and the correct use of air conditioning systems.
  • The ideal space of dust mite development in large numbers is mattresses, which is natural since humans spend a long time there during the night and even daytime as well. It is proper to wash pillows and bedsheets at a temperature higher than 60 degrees Celsius so that mites are completely destroyed.
  • We should use dry pieces of cloth when cleaning surfaces so that mites don’t spread into the atmosphere.
  • It is extremely important to remove permanent carpets or floor mats inside or outside buildings.
