Dust mites covers and protectors for your home
The fastest growing company in the industry. Our dust mites mattress covers and protectors are allergy specialists certified which cover all the 6 sides of your mattress and give you complete protection against dust mites and allergies.
Are you suffering from allergic rhinitis (nasal congestion, itching, watery eyes, sneezing and asthma)? Does your flu in the winter seem endless?
There are great chances that you are allergic to dust mites, like 30% of the world population. We are perfect hosts for mites which feed on our dead skin particles and can be found in large quantities in our beds. Up to 10,000,000 mites can be found in a bed. The life cycle of a mite is between 30 to 90 days. Females produce between 1 and 3 eggs per day. The best way to prevent allergic rhinitis is to avoid the allergen that triggers it.
Despite their small size, dust mites produce between 10 to 20 particles of wastes per day, each containing a protein known to cause allergic reactions and asthma. These particles are so small that they float in the air when they are disturbed and they disperse easily. The most recent studies show that 30% of the world population is allergic to dust mites and these are responsible for 70% of respiratory allergies. 60 to 80% of children with asthma are susceptible to dust mites. A female will evacuate 200 times their weight in excrement in their life and after two years, the mites represent 10% of the weight of an unprotected pillow.
When a person sits on an unprotected 360 degree (zippered) bed, dust mite particles escape into the air and cause allergies and discomfort for sensitive people. Allergists recommend dust mite covers that protect the 6 sides of the mattress with an ultimate protection barrier that protects against the extremely fine particles (<2,5 microns). Mattress protectors that only cover the top of beds are totally ineffective for people with allergies. More and more people are relying on our proven ProTech Allergies mattress covers.
