How to eliminate dustmites?

What are dustmites?

Dustmites are imperceptible microscopic organisms to the human eye that mainly live in warm (25ºC/30ºC) and humid (60%-80 %) habitats. Since they feed off our dead skin and other wastes from the body, mattresses become the perfect home for them.

How do dustmites affect people?

Dustmite particles, especially feces, are suspended in the air. When inhaling these substances, allergy symptoms such as asthma, rhinitis, conjunctivitis and eczema occur.

Allergy symptoms experienced by people with mite allergy are, mainly, inflammation of the bronchial mucosa, itching and difficulty breathing.
