Dust mites eat skin cells people shed; they thrive in warm, humid temperature environments such as the weather we’re having now. According to the Mayo Clinic, dust mites are relatives of spiders, but are too small to see without a microscope. Ricotta Heating and Air offers humidifiers and air purification systems which improve indoor air quality and decrease health risks such as dust mites.
Mayo Clinic recommends a few steps to help reduce the number of dust mites in your home; these include:
- Keeping humidity low
- Washing bedding weekly
- Vacuuming and dusting regularly
- Cutting down on Clutter
- Air purifiers
There is more to air quality than heating and cooling. Ricotta Heating and Air, the St. Louis area indoor air quality specialists (IAQ), can provide air-quality improvement products, design and implement solutions to your needs. Ricotta services and equipment include:
- Air Cleaners
- Zoned cooling and heating systems
- Carbon Monoxide monitors
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is important, because most people spent over 80% of their time indoors. Our exposure to indoor pollutants and airborne particles has increased with airtight building construction. The use of strong chemicals in household cleaners has also increased. These allergens may cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems, coughs or even asthma.
Humidifiers and air purification systems, such as those used by Ricotta Heating and Air help keep the air in your home clean. They are a great way to help alleviate dust mites!
