Forget About Vampires and Zombies, Dust Mites are Scary
I admit it. I love a good horror movie; don’t you? I’m talking real horror, not slasher style guts and gore but real terror invoking, edge of your seat horror. The kind of horror that made you break into a sweat as you read ‘Salems Lot or Cujo. The Legend of Hill House is a great haunted house story that has withstood the test of time. But you’ve got some pretty scary things in your house and in your bed right now. And you sleep with these terrors every night! Dust mites are scary.
The Invasion of the Dust Mites is the scariest show in town and it is featured in your bedroom every night.
Dust mites are microscopic bugs that feed on shed human skin cells. Yes, dust mites are skin eaters! Dust mites are scary and just the thought of dust mites should leave you horrified. They love to live where it is dark, warm, and abundantly filled with food. Do you realize that is a description of your mattress and pillow?
Ever wonder why old mattresses are so incredibly heavy? The added weight comes from an accumulation of years and years of dust mites and their feces along with your shed skin.
The dust mite body and feces contain a protein that is the most common household allergen. Every time you move or shift on your bed you send a cloud of these allergen-rich particles into the air. Just sitting on the edge of the bed or moving a decorative pillow can create an invisible allergen cloud. Airborne particles are easily inhaled. The dust mite exposure causes a cascade of events in your immune system and you feel the results. Runny or stopped up nose, itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, wheezing, itching, hives, sore throat, or a host of other symptoms.
This scene doesn't have to play out in your bedroom each night. It’s pretty easy to stop it. Just encase all your pillows, mattress and boxspring in our specially-designed dust mite proof allergy bedding covers. The special fabrics and design of these zippered dust mite encasements will stop the allergens from becoming airborne. To prevent a sequel, just wash the sheets and pillowcases every 7 days in De-Mite.
You can't save Drew Barrymore (as Casey Beckler) in the Scream movie, but you can save yourself and your loved ones from a nightly Invasion of the Dust Mites!
