Dust is all around us. Whether you vacuum, wash, or clean, there’s no way you can get completely away from particles of dust. The thing is, dust is composed of certain things, but it’s mainly dead skin particles! It’s pretty gross, but it’s true. We shed our skin every day, usually overnight in bed.
You guess it: that means your bed is where the most dust is! Along with all these dead skin cells, there are little creatures that eat these dead skin cells, meaning there are a lot in our bed, too. Dust mites can be pretty bad for our allergies if we’re allergic to them!
Other than allergies, dust mites aren’t harmful. We can’t even see them. They don’t do anything to us as a whole, but people who breathe in these tiny creatures can suffer from allergic reactions. That can be troublesome, especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Thankfully, there are ways to control this.
As said on Damage Control 911 of Orlando, you can get an air purifier with a HEPA filter. When dust mites die, they become almost weightless and can be pulled into an air purifier, trapping them in the HEPA filter that is inside of it. If you’re having problems sleeping, consider getting one of these!
