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 mattress and 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!
Wishing you the best of health
