Dust mites are a common dweller in many UK households but don’t cause much of a problem for the majority of people. House dust mites specifically like to live in bedrooms and kitchens and thrive in mattresses, furniture, bedding and carpets. If you vacuum the carpet regularly, clean your house to keep dust to a minimum and regularly change your bedding sheets, quilts and pillows cases then you most likely won’t find them a problem. If though you are one of the 300 million plus people worldwide who are affected by asthma or suffer from certain kinds of allergies then dust mites can be a big problem and affect you.
If you suffer from asthma and allergies then there are certain things you can do to stop the dust mites getting comfy in your house and causing you problems. Examples of things that can be done to reduce the chance of dust mites are having a vinyl floor in the kitchen or wooden flooring in the bedroom which removes the need for carpets. This means that you have removed one of the mite’s favorite nesting grounds. Your bed is also another favorite dwelling for dust mites with your bedding, pillow and mattress all used as a home by them.
To massively reduce the chance of you snuggling up with some nasty bed bugs at night you could change your mattress from a standard mattress to a memory foam mattress since the dust mites do not like and cannot live in the conditions offered by memory foam. To really give them no place to hide in your bed you can also swap your pillows for memory foam pillows which will really reduce the places for them to feed and nest.
The dense structure of memory foam means that it’s difficult for dust mites to nest and feed in the mattress which makes mattresses made of memory foam a great choice for your bed if you are a suffer of asthma or allergies due to dust mites. All memory foam mattresses manufactured by Sleepshaper are all resistant to dust mites which means you will be able to sleep safely and comfortably in the knowledge there are no horrible bed bugs in there with you
