Dust Mite Resistant Mattresses
Dust mites are tiny, little microscopic bugs that live and thrive in the same type of environment that humans do. That is because they enjoy the same types of temperatures that we do, and because their food source is us. Actually, it’s not like they are eating us alive, but rather eating our dead skin cells. And that’s the biggest composition of dust – dead skin cells, that is. Dust mites make their home many surfaces that we come into contact with daily – that furniture which we sit on (our couches), that which we walk on (our carpets), and that which we sleep on (ewe, our pillows and mattresses!). This is why it is important that we make sure as much as possible that our mattresses are dust mite resistant mattresses. Who wants to sleep in and breathe the fecal material of dust mites?!
Natural latex mattresses are some of the best types of mattresses to avoid dust mites, since they are naturally dust mite resistant mattresses. Being hypoallergenic, latex mattresses are also antimicrobial and antifungal. Since they don’t have a hollow core they are also more resistant to bed bugs, which thrive in open spaces like is present with an innerspring mattress.
One of the reasons that dust mites like mattresses so well is not only because of the favorable surrounding temperatures in the environment, but also because of the humidity. Because we sweat and breathe continuously, dust mites thrive in our beds along with us. What people are allergic to is the fecal matter that comes from the dust mites after they ingest and then excrete the dust coming from our dead skin cells. But who wants to wear a dust mask to bed to avoid breathing in the fecal material, much less lay in the waste of the mites? It is much better to prevent having the experience at all by buying a latex mattress, which does a great job of eliminating the problem almost entirely. This is one of the many benefits of a latex mattress. Not only will you sleep more soundly and comfortably, but you will also rest assured that your mattress is dust mite resistant. You won’t have a flare up of allergies due to the dust mites or due to the mattress being made of harsh petrochemicals like other foam mattresses are made from (such as memory foam).
