Bed bugs and dust mites are like unwanted house guests. Hundreds of thousands of them all living off of your dead skin and invading your bed and upholstery. And what do they give in return? Bites, allergies, rashes, and even nausea. It is important to note that neither one of these microorganisms are dangerous for your life, however, bed bugs are often associated with allergic reactions and dust mites can leave your whole body with puffy and itchy bite marks. That said, where these pests lack in serious health risks, they make up for in their annoying presence. Just like that unwanted house guest, they have to be removed by force.
Bed bugs are named as such because as nocturnal creatures, their feeding on warm mammal blood occurs when we are fast asleep. Dust mites, on the other hand, enjoy a meal of dead skin flakes that are shed by both humans and animals, any time of the day. For these reasons, bed bugs are usually found along the edges of the mattress and in between the mattress and the baseboard while dust mites can be found in mattresses as well as in the crevices of upholstery, in carpet, and even near organic-based food items.
Bed bug or dust mite infestation is a common culprit of allergic reactions. In the case of dust mite allergies, the symptoms are actually caused by their feces. Whereas the allergic reactions from bed bugs are thought to be caused by their saliva.
Are you wondering what kills bed bugs and dust mites? Both of these species cannot withstand high temperatures. This makes the high temperature of steam cleaning an effective and safe method of killing these tiny arthropods.
For pillowcases, blankets, sheets, blinds, curtains, and other easily washable items, regular washing in extreme heat is enough. But what to do with carpets, furniture, and mattresses? Most experts recommend professional steam and deep cleaning services as the most effective method of extermination.
