Ward Off Dust Mites with Polished Concrete Floors

Copyright (c) 2010 Nadine Davis

Have you ever had a rash that looked a lot like eczema, and weren't sure where it came from or how you got it? There's a very good chance that the rash was caused by dust mites. Contrary to popular belief, though, the mites don't produce those rashes by biting you. Instead, rashes develop as an allergic reaction to the faeces and other wastes that are produced by them. You can get relief from a dust mite allergy by tearing out carpeting and replacing it with polished concrete Brisbane floors.

What Are Dust Mites:

Dust mites are tiny bugs that live primarily off of the dead skin cells that people and animals shed. While the mites themselves don't pose any dangers to humans or animals, their faeces and other waste products can trigger allergic reactions. A single mattress can house thousands and thousands of dust mites; the critters not only love beds, but virtually anyplace where shed skin cells can be found - including carpets.

Carpets: Prime Breeding Grounds for Dust Mites:

Whenever you vacuum, you're probably concentrating on the visible debris that is scattered across your carpeting, and give little thought to the things that you can't see. One way to reduce the number of microscopic dust mites in the home is by vacuuming on a regular basis. However, this is an imperfect solution since most vacuums simply can't hope to eliminate even half of the wily critters. As people learn more about dust mite allergies, they are increasing tearing out their carpeting altogether.

Ditch the Carpeting:

Since there's no hope of sucking every last dust mite out of the carpets in your home, the next best solution is to replace those carpets with flooring that doesn't double as a housing development for these mites. These days, one of the best options is concrete polished Brisbane flooring. Polished concrete is not only attractive, but it gives dust mites no where to hide. When combined with eliminating over-stuffed couches, stuffed animals and other dust mite havens, polished concrete flooring can dramatically reduce the severity and frequency of mite allergies.

Breathe Easier with Polished Concrete Floors:

One of the biggest concerns that people have when presented with the option of tearing out all of their carpeting is the impact that it will have on their interior decor. Happily, polished concrete flooring is truly stunning and enhances the appearance and the aesthetic appeal of just about any home. After having polished concrete flooring installed, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner - especially when the rashes and other allergic reactions caused by dust mites begin to subside. Without a doubt, polished concrete is an allergy sufferer's best friend - and a dust mite's worst enemy.
