Ewww, Gross! Dust mites are probably in your home!

The Green Screen offers a great way to reduce many issues that cause poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Many of us suffer from allergies or asthma from one thing or another. There are tree and weed pollens, pet dander smoke, other airborne pollutants and then there is the issue of dust mites.

The Green Screen Green Screen Difference is good for all these issues, but today we are going to talk about dust mites. Want to take a guess at what the allergen consists of? Fecal matter and body fragments…. GROSS! Dust mites are detectable in about 4 out of 5 homes in the USA so they are a big source of allergy issues.

Dust mites are microscopic insect like critters but one positive is that they don’t bite or sting. They hide out in bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets and curtains and feed on the dead human skin cells found in dust.

Most people’s exposure to the dust mite allergens is at bedtime and symptoms are sneezing, runny nose and even wheezing and difficulties with breathing.

There are ways to reduce the number of dust mites in your home. The Green Screen Testamonies is a HVAC air filter that is very good at catching dust and fine allergens including dust mite debris. They are a step above the pleated filters because they catch more dust, dirt and allergens while allowing the good air flow the HVAC system needs to run efficiently. You can read more about and shop for these fantastic filters at

Here are some other ways to reduce dust mites:

-Reduce humidity in the home because that is their water source.

-Replace upholstered furniture with smooth surface materials such as leather.

-Eliminate drapes and curtains or keep them dust free.

- Wash bedding in hot water once a week. Keep clean covers on mattresses and pillows.

-Remove carpets or use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

-Use a damp cloth when dusting to keep dust from being stirred up.

-Use a air purifier to filter out dust and allergens. MORE INFO HERE
