If your child suffers from asthma or eczema, a dust mite allergy may be the cause. Once a skin-prick test has confirmed a dust-mite allergy, it’s essential to do what you can to reduce your child being exposed to the allergens from dust mites. The key focus should be on the child’s bedroom, specifically preventing dust mites from the mattress and pillow getting near your child.
The weave on these cotton MiteGuard covers is 6.1 microns, ie they are made from an incredibly tightly woven fabric with almost no space between fibres.
In comparison, regular cotton sheets have spaces between the fibres of approx 300 microns. Since the average dust mite measures approx 20 microns, dust mites are not able to pass through your MiteGuard mattress cover.
MiteGuard covers should be fitted to your mattress, duvet and pillow. Your usual outer sheets and covers are then fitted over the top of the MiteGuard covers.
Regular (weekly) washing of the outer sheets and covers in hot water (>55oC) will maintain a low allergen environment in the bed.
