Dust Mites in your work space ... YUK!

What are dust mites:

Dust mites are related to spiders. They are wingless creatures with oval-shaped bodies that are not visible to the naked eye – which is probably just as well! In an office, dust mites may hide anywhere that there is dust. ….in carpets, furniture, and curtains, keyboards, equipment, etc.

These little critters can cause allergic responses in humans – such as wheezing, coughing, runny nose, itchy eyes and skin, rashes and hives, and breathing difficulties. The allergy is caused by a response to the proteins that dust mites carry, which means even dead mites can cause allergies and need to be removed.

How to reduce dust mites in the workplace:

  • Damp dusting

  • Mopping hard floors

  • Keeping surfaces clean

  • Vacuuming

  • Discarding items that gather dust – such as old papers

  • Maintaining air conditioning systems – such as keeping them clean, cleaning and replacing filters, and maintaining air ducts

  • Washing mats and rugs

  • Reducing the room humidity
