Make Sure Your Dust Mite
Allergy Is Covered With Protective Bedding
Dust mites are one of the most common causes of
allergies. These tiny bugs are not visible to the naked eye but they leave
behind a trail that can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms in allergy
sufferers. The protein in dust mite waste can cause everything from sneezing and
itching eyes to asthma attacks, which is why most doctors recommend taking steps
to protect yourself from mites.
The most common protective measure when it
comes to allergies is
dust mite covers. These are extra layers that can be added to pillows,
mattresses and box springs to help prevent dust mites from reaching you as you
sleep. By taking the simple measure of using anti-allergy covers, you can reduce
your instance of allergy attacks dramatically.
Allergy bedding comes in a variety of fabrics
and sizes, all of which are effective at controlling not only dust mites but pet
dander, pollen, bed bugs and other airborne allergens as well. Because we spend
a significant amount of time in bed and come in such close contact with our
bedding, doctors highly recommend taking this kind of protection as the first
step in allergy control.
In order to be truly effective, dust mite
covers have to be made of a fabric that is tightly woven to prevent even the
smallest of allergens to penetrate it.
Allergy bedding is
available in everything from linen to 100% cotton and even Bed Bug Stretch Knit,
a special fabric available at the Allergy Store. All of these fibers have
extremely small pores, enabling them to protect against airborne allergens.
Some fabrics even include a special urethane
membrane, which can also keep liquids out, making them resistant to staining as
well as effective against dust mites. Even without the membrane, allergy control
bedding is still a quick and easy way of preventing uncomfortable symptoms.
Before you sink hundreds of dollars into other supposed “cures”, you should
seriously consider investing in some protective bedding.
Of course, there are many other steps you can
take to make sure your home is free from allergens, but dust mite covers for
your beds are extremely important. And because they can zip on and off easily,
you can even carry them with you when you travel so that you can be assured of
an allergen free environment wherever you go.
Dust mites are almost impossible to avoid, but
you can help minimize your exposure and the nasty after effects by securing your
bed with protective covers. That way, you can rest easy knowing your bed isn’t a
breeding ground for allergy causing bugs. Of course, you’ll want to wash your
covers regularly just as you do your bedding, to keep them as clean and allergen
free as possible.
Your bed can be the biggest cause of allergy
symptoms but it doesn’t have to be. By using specially made allergy control bed
covers, you can make your bed safer and wake up feeling refreshed and allergy
free every day!
