Do you wake up with allergies? The reason could live within your mattress and bedding.
Australia has one of the highest levels of allergy & asthma in the world. To minimize allergy and asthma attacks, the National Asthma Council recommends avoidance of known triggers including dust mites and mould. Dust mites and mould are also associated with eczema and allergic rhinitis (blocked noses).
A major site of exposure to the dust mite allergen is while we are sleeping in our beds (in mattresses, pillows and quilts). Would you believe 100,000 to one million dust mites live in the average mattress (depending on mattress’ age)?! That is why mattresses become heavier over time. It’s the dust mite’s secretions and faeces that are the real culprit of allergic reactions. They contain a protein that triggers allergic reactions such as sneezing and blocked noses.
Dust mites are right at home in our mattresses and bedding. They prefer a warm, humid and dark environment and they feed on human skin flakes. A sign of dust mites, bacteria and mould are the yellow stains seen on unprotected mattresses, quilts and pillows! Yuk! Without Protectors on our bedding, bodily fluids such as perspiration and saliva seep into bedding and combine with skin cells, breeding dust mites and bacteria to form an unhealthy sleep environment. To protect you and your family while sleeping from dust mites, bacteria and mould – mattresses and bedding should be protected with waterproof and breathable protective covers (mattress protectors).
