This test aims to determine the level of contamination of house dust mites on home textiles (e.g. mattresses, sofas & carpets etc.).
House dust mites
House dust mites are tiny, but their effect on some people is huge. The allergic reaction of affected people is initiated by the excretion of the house dust mites. House dust mites can be found in any homes, they feed on dead skin which we all shed regularly. Even with a high sanitation environment, dust mites still can be found from mattresses, pillows, sofas and carpets.
