How Dust Mites Affect Your Mattress and Pillow

An average queen-sized mattress hosts around 2 million dust mites, feeding on your flaked skin cells, excreting 20 to 30 faecal pellets, 15 microns in size, twice their body weight, every day. A 6 year old pillow can hold up to a tenth of it’s weight in dustmite bodies and faecal matter.

Just consider, each morning you awaken to an extra 40-60 million faecal pellets in your mattress! If dust mites allergy related symptoms are affecting you, encasing mattresses, pillows and doonas may provide welcome relief.

This is the number one most important environmental dust mite control for dust mite allergic patients. Combined with dust mites mattress protectors, pillow covers are the first line of defense against dust mite allergen for allergic and asthmatic sufferers.

Dust mite mattress protectors can be custom made to provide a proper fit, avoid movement or material slipping under you whilst lying in bed. Regarding pillow and doona protectors, you buy the standard size that best fits the item you want to cover. Countries around the world will have different “standard” sizes. Here at Mitey Fresh we can custom make dust mite bedding to your measurements.
