200 000 DUST MITE DROPPINGS A DAY
The invisible cloud in your home may be entirely to blame for any non-food allergic reactions experienced by you or your family.
In fact, top local and international GPs, pediatricians and ENTs agree that dust mite droppings are the cause of:
That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can solve the dust mite problem, prevent all of the unpleasant conditions listed above and protect those around you (especially your children!) in one easy step.

And a dust mite infestation does not mean that your house or pet isn’t clean; it just means that it’s comfortable. Comfortable enough for these eight-legged creatures to get settled, breed, eat, excrete and die.
BABIES ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE
Early exposure to dust mites can cause a lifetime of suffering for your child, in the form of asthma or eczema – and, unlike seasonal allergens like pollen, dust mites are present all year round. Your cat or dog may even be infested. How many times a day do you or your children pat the dog or cuddle the cat?
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
How Do Home Air Ducts Add to The Problem?
Dust mite excrement is tiny enough to circulate in your home as part of normal dust. Dust mites can also live in your air ducts. As the layer of dust inside your ducts builds up, it’s constantly re-circulating throughout your home, including the dust mite debris that can trigger allergies. The more debris in your air ducts, the more dust mite debris there is to circulate.

Regular, thorough duct cleaning goes a long way toward minimizing the quantities of dust mite allergens in your home. If there’s no buildup of dust in your air ducts, it can’t add to the allergen load in your home.
