Night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite

THE hot, sweaty nights are upon us and with the average adult sweating a pint of water a night, it creates the perfect conditions for dust mites and bed bugs to breed.
Whilst dust mites themselves are harmless, their faeces and body fragments pose a risk to our health by triggering allergic reactions. They can result in coughs, dry eyes and make existing allergies worse.
It is recommended not to make your bed straight away in the morning, but roll back the sheets and open windows to allow it to breath and prevent hot humid conditions in between the sheets.
You should also wash your bed sheets and pillow cases every week with the actual pillow and duvets being washed twice a year. Mattresses should also be vacuumed to remove mites and dead skin cells.
