According to the Malta & Gozo’s annual government statistics over 95% of homes are infested with dust mites.This is pretty shocking. Dust mites eat skin cells shed by people, and they thrive in warm, humid environments just like Malta. In most homes, bedding, upholstered furniture and carpeting provide an ideal environment for dust mites but they are almost always present in the mattress of any home in Malta. This is because Dust mites live in an environment between 20-35 degrees. While dust mites are too microscopic to bite or sting, their presence can be felt in other ways, as illustrated below.

Common symptoms of an allergic reaction to dust mites include:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy, red or watery eyes
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat
  • Postnasal drip
  • Cough
  • Facial pressure and pain
  • Frequent awakening
  • Swollen, blue-colored skin under your eyes

These symptoms can often be confused with the common cold. However, for an allergy sufferer in a home infested with dust mites, this ‘cold’ never ends unless action is taken to solve the problem. Fortunately Buffer Boys cleaning service offers a totally free in-home inspection for dust mite removal.
