Junk and Debris Removal – Help for Asthma Sufferers

You may be one of the 57 million Americans who suffer from severe allergies and asthma. Then beware the microscopic dust mite.

40,000 per dust particle!House dust mites are the most common trigger of asthma. In addition, they can cause mild skin and allergic reactions,  including eczema.
Dust mites live in house dust. The feces of the dust mite is the actual allergen that causes breathing problems. You get about 40,000 dust mites per speck of dust, and each of the buggers produce feces 20 times per day. That’s a lot of dust mite poo that you’re inhaling.
Here are three tips that can help you battle dust mites:

1. Get rid of the junk and debris. All that extra stuff attracts dust, traps moisture, and become a breeding ground for dust mites. Junk King can help you with this important first step.

2. Vacuum rugs and carpets regularly.  Occasionally, steam clean carpets and other furniture with heavy fabrics such as couches.

3. Keep the air dry with air-conditioning or a dehumidifier. Dust mites like humidity.

4. Use a HEPA filter to 3 microns. Or you may prefer a negative ion and ozone generator. If your house doesn’t have an air filter, then your lungs are the air filter.
