Dust Mites

Safety Shield Mattress Protectors and Pillow Protectors create an impermeable layer between you and the dust mites and allergens in your mattress.
Dust mites can create the perfect storm of allergy triggers causing chronic health issues. Some main signs of house dust mite allergies are itchiness, sneezing, inflamed or infected eczema, watering/reddening eyes, runny nose and clogging in the lungs.
Dust mites are tiny insects that are invisible to the naked eye. They feed on flakes of shed human skin and flourish in the stable indoor environment provided by homes. Dust mites survive well in mattresses, bedding, carpets, and furniture. Even in dry climates, house dust mites survive and reproduce easily in bedding (especially in pillows), deriving moisture from the humidity generated by human breathing, perspiration, and saliva.
Your bed may be housing as many as 10 million dust mites. The dust mite favors a warm, almost moist surrounding, which is the condition of your mattress while you are sleeping on it without a mattress protector. Unless you had an allergic reaction caused by dust mites waste droppings, you’d probably never know they were there. However, exposure, especially as a young child, can cause complications including asthma, eczema, and hay fever that will last a lifetime.
Protect yourself and your family from dust mites in your bedding, where you spend hours a day, by using your Safety Shield Mattress and Pillow Protectors.
