It is surprising what lurks in your upholstery! First up, dust mites. Living off your dead skin cells, these microscopic organisms stay living in your upholstery for up to 10 weeks. Over those weeks they are reproducing rapidly with 60-100 eggs at a time. Besides the fact that dust mites are unattractive and discomforting to think about, they also contribute to allergies. Even if you do not typically have allergies, you become at risk of developing a reaction when there are millions of dust mites lurking in your carpet and upholstery.
