Even the cleanest homes are susceptible to Dust Mites. They are found in homes everywhere and they are known to be the trigger of many allergic reactions in some people.

Dust mites are smaller than a full stop, they have no eyes, cannot drink and have no organised breathing system and they live for approximately three months.

Furthermore, they can get sustenance from their droppings and will eat them up to 3 times over if necessary.
