Ultra-Fresh treatment works by preventing the dust mites from feeding.
The mites feed on dead skin cells which we shed continuously. The dead cells are initially quite hard and have to be softened by being broken down by fungal organisms which are present in the environment before the house dust mites can eat them. The Ultra-Fresh treatment prevents this breakdown occurring which deprives the mites of their food source thus preventing them from breeding. There is no insecticide present in the treatment.
The digestive enzymes that are discharged into the mite faeces are the most bothersome of the dust-mite allergens. Less potent allergens are found in the mite bodies. The mite's tiny faecal pellets disintegrate to form a very fine powder that can easily float into the air when disturbed. This commonly occurs during vacuuming, making the bed and turning in bed while sleeping, or walking on the carpet. When an allergic person inhales these particles, asthma or nasal allergy symptoms may occur. There is also evidence that allergic eczema can be aggravated by this exposure.
What about allergies to moulds?
Symptoms of hay fever (allergic rhinitis) and asthma can be caused by the inhalation of the spores of moulds. Moulds, or fungi, tend to grow on wet surfaces, either indoors or outdoors. The body of the mould produces spores or seeds, which are smaller than pollen and less potent as allergens. Large amounts of mould spores can be found in the air, especially in the spring and fall. They are usually most abundant at night, especially when it is damp, foggy, or during the rainy season.
