Dust Mite Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

FAQ: What are dust mites, and what do they look like?

Dust mites are microscopic, spider-like bugs that are 45% found in significant numbers in mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets, curtains, and other dusty surfaces. Dead skin flakes are their meal of choice, and they like to survive at 50% humidity. Auckland averages 60% humidity levels. So, it is notably easier to control them with additional measures.

What do the world’s leading scientists recommend for heat-killing dust mites?

International scientists and government agencies NCBI, NLM, and NIH studies prove that 70°C + heated steam kills dust mites. Thus, it also kills germs, viruses, and allergens. Most carpet manufacturers recommend a state-of-the-art truck-mounted method, Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry mattress, upholstery, and carpet cleaners in Auckland. It uses 84°C hot steam at the point of contact, killing dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and other allergens. Then, a powerful vacuum removes the germs and allergens exhausted outside the home.

FAQ: Can you see dust mites?

Due to their microscopic size (0.3 mm), you can only spot the creepy crawlies using a magnifying glass and looking in all the right places. Dust mites are tiny pests (smaller than a quarter of a millimetre), like in warm, dark areas with RH humidity levels over 50%. They love bedding and soft furnishings because they have an excellent food source. They eat human and animal skin.

FAQ: What about dust mite control treatments?

There are safe and effective dust mite treatments, such as Hydrogen peroxide-based dust mite control treatment applications. Depending on the infestation scenario, the dust mite control treatment is either:

  1. Applied 15 minutes before the hot steam extraction method
  2. After the hot steam cleaning, they are applied, which neutralises in 3 days. This is often suitable for hotel-type mattresses with potential bed bug combination control.

FAQ: Do dust mites bite?

The opinion that dust mites can bite is not valid in the slightest. However, the skin they shed and faeces are so lightweight. They can become airborne and cause a long list of dust mite allergies. The bugs also release potent enzymes to break down delicate lungs, noses, eyes, or skin cells. Thereby causing an autoimmune inflammatory response. Asthmatics are particularly affected.

FAQ: Do dust mite control treatments use pesticides?

We don’t use pesticides on mattresses or upholstery for dust mites. However, we use MAF-approved and safe synthetic pyrethroids on carpets and upholstery. Our FDA hydrogen peroxide-based approved dust mite treatment is even safer on mats, mattresses, curtains, draperies, and upholstery.

FAQ: What health and diseases can dust mites cause?

Dust mites in your home can result in numerous complications, such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, and related conditions. They can trigger conjunctivitis, dermatitis, and hypersensitive pneumonia. Contribute to inflammation and the onset of allergic migraine headaches.

FAQ: How can I kill dust mites in my home?

The areas where we sleep are usually teeming with dust mites. Thus, it’s a good idea to cover your mattress, pillows, and duvets with micro-porous covers. You can also get rid of the clutter. Carpet removal is an option; however, some studies suggest they are more airborne and allergy-causing when walking on hard floors.

Purchase a HEPA-filtered vacuum and keep humidity levels as low as possible. Dust mites die when exposed to over 70 Celsius temperatures. It’s also well known that vacuuming reduces dust mites and their faeces. However, household vacuums only generate approximately 1-2 HG of vacuum power. Generally, an exhausts contaminated waste air back inside the home. Thus, it is where Steam N Dry Auckland can help.

Does Hot Steam kill Dust Mites?

Steam cleaning can eliminate dust mites and other pests due to high temperatures. The heat generated can penetrate various surfaces and fabrics, potentially killing dust mites and their allergens.

Dust mites are microscopic arachnids that thrive in warm and humid environments. They are a common cause of allergies and asthma and can be found in bedding, upholstery, and carpets. These tiny creatures feed on dead skin cells and can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

When combatting dust mites, it’s crucial to ensure that steam is hot enough to kill them. Most steam cleaning devices produce heat at temperatures between 212°F (100°C) and 302°F (150°C). At these temperatures, dust mites and their eggs are to be destroyed.

High heat

The high heat can directly impact dust mites by denaturing their proteins and disrupting their bodily functions. This can lead to their death and significantly reduce their population in treated areas. It can also help remove allergens, dust, and debris from surfaces, reducing the dust mite allergens.

To effectively kill dust mites, focus on treating areas where dust mites are prevalent, such as mattresses, pillows, upholstered furniture, and carpets. Thoroughly steam these surfaces, ensuring deep penetration into the fabric to reach any hidden house dust mites or eggs.

If you have concerns about dust mite allergies or infestations, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or an expert in pest control.
