Your talking about the mattresses now. I as only talking about HVAC
prior. They are two different applications. But again you like to argue
and think you right when you have no idea what your talking about. The
mattress aspect has been on the news and used in Europe for 30 years. Th
UV-C Light will penetrate a mattress deep enough to kill, mold, mildew,
viruses, bacterias, dust mite eggs and it alters the DNA of the dust
mites as in other micro- organisms so that they are unable to reproduce
and eventually will die as well. The vacuum is to extract as much as
possible so the UV-C light is more effective and to rid the areas of as
many dust mites as possible. The spray is produced by a major
corporation that is use as maintenance between cleaning for control. You
might want to read more about a topic before you present such strong
opinions. You might want to read more on my website to learn more about
real studies, since you were so kind enough to point it out. I never
said it turns the bad stuff to dust is will disintegrate them. You
really do need some help.
BELOW ARE THE WEBSITES THAT YOU LISTED ABOVE. BELOW EACH OF THE
WEBSITES IS THE INFORMATION THAT I HAVE READ THERE. CAN YOU READ? DO
YOU KNOW HOW TO? YOU JUST KEEP GOING MAKING IGNORANT STATEMENTS AND
CLAIM THAT I NEED TO READ UP ON THE SUBJECT. NOT THE PROBLEM, THE
PROBLEM IS THAT YOU NEED HOW TO READ AND EXPRESS AN OPINION WHEN AND
ONLY WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT NOT JUST BLAH BLAH BLAH
BLAH. FIRST USE YOU BRAIN THEN SPEAK OR TYPE. UNTIL THEN STOP STATING
THINGS ABOUT ME THAT ARE NOT TRUE. I HAVE RESEARCHED AND I CONTINUE TO
DO SO AND I DON'T PASS COMMENTS OR MAKE STATEMENTS UNLESS I AM 100% THAT
I KNOW WITH FACTS ABOUT WHAT I SAY. YOU MIGHT TRY THE SAME.

HABITS AND HABITATS
Dust mites do not live in air ducts in homes. Many people spend much
time and money cleaning the air ducts to reduce dust mites. This is not
necessary because dust mites need about 70 percent relative humidity or
higher to live, and they need food. Areas where people spend much time,
like a bed or a favorite plush chair, are prime sites for dust mites.
top part of mattresses containing fibrous material is a
favorite place for dust mites during warm and humid times. The **
parts of mattresses may provide protected areas for the dust mites
during unfavorable conditions. Clothing is used by dust mites as a means
of transportation from room to room or even from house to house.
Vacuum often with a vacuum cleaner provided with a high
efficiency purifying air (HEPA) filtration system. Throw away vacuum
bags after use because dust mites can leave the bag.

What are dust mites?
Tiny microscopic creatures called dust mites are an important cause of
allergic reactions to house dust. They belong to the family of
eight-legged creatures called arachnids. This family also includes
spiders, chiggers and ticks. Dust mites are hardy creatures that live
well and **
multiply easily in warm, humid places. They prefer
temperatures at or above 70°F with a relative humidity of 75-80 percent
and die when the humidity falls below 40-50 percent. They are rarely
found in dry climates.
As many as **
10 percent of the general population and *** 90 percent of
people with allergic asthma are sensitive to dust mites. *****
studies in the United States suggest that at least 45 percent of young
people with asthma are allergic to dust mites.
People who are allergic to dust mites react to proteins in the bodies
and feces of the mites. ****
* These fecal particles are found in the
highest concentrations in pillows, mattresses, carpeting, and
upholstered furniture. They float into the air when anyone vacuums,
walks on a carpet or disturbs bedding, but settle out of the air once
the disturbance is over. Dust mite-allergic people who inhale these
particles frequently experience allergy symptoms. In fact, a dust mite
allergic patient who sleeps for 8 hours every night spends one third of
his life with his nose in direct contact with a pillow loaded with dust
There may be many as 19,000 dust mites in one gram of dust, but usually
between 100 to 500 mites live in each gram. (A gram is about the weight
of a paper clip.) Each mite produces about 10-20 waste particles per day
and lives for 30 days. Egg-laying females can add 25-30 new mites to the
population during their lifetime.
Mites eat particles of skin and dander, so they thrive in places
where there are people. Dust mites don't bite, cannot spread diseases
and usually do not live on people. They are harmful only to people who
become allergic to them. While usual household insecticides have no
effect on dust mites, there are ways to reduce exposure to dust mites in

The application of frequent vacuuming as a dust control measure is more
likely to aggravate allergic asthmatic conditions because ****
conventional vacuums are very "inefficient." Dust collection by
conventional vacuums results in a significant increase in air borne dust
concentrations. Vacuuming is best accomplished by cleaners that entrain
dust into a "liquid medium" such as water (rather than a dust bag),
which reduces the suspension and dissemination of allergenic dust
particles in the air. Some pest control firms sell ****
* air purifiers
to eliminate the food source of house dust mites. Air purifiers emit a
low level of ozone (activated oxygen). Ozone attaches to fungus, mold,
and bacteria on skin flakes. Machines sell for around $625 and last up
to 15 years. About the size of a bread box, an area up to 2,500 square
feet is protected. There is no maintenance required other than a
thorough cleaning once every three to four months. The air purifier is
placed near a return for air conditioning or heating system or centrally
located within the home.
Various types of air purifiers can be attached to the central air return
to decrease irritants. Most filters remove 50 to 70 percent of material.
HEPA filters will remove up to 99 percent of the material. Indoor air
quality is very important. (One needs to bring in fresh outside air
rather than recirculating dirty air.) Some filters need to be changed
Some feel it is important to focus on decreasing indoor humidity,
especially during the winter period to reduce dust mite populations. One
might forsake humidifier use during winter periods, use of dehumidifiers
during high-humidity periods, or use of central air conditioning.
Effective control of mites would require the maintenance of relative
humidities below 50 percent (mites thrive in humid conditions).
No pesticides are currently labeled for house dust mites. ****
two non-pesticide products, Acarosan and Allergy Control Solution are
available for treatment of house dust mites and their allergens. The
active ingredient of each is benzyl benzoate and tannic acid. Benzoic
acid esters, such as benzyl benzoate, are very effective acaricides in
both laboratory and field evaluations. Health risks appear to be slight
as benzoates are rapidly metabolized in the body to hippuric acid, which
is excreted in the urine. Most acaricidal studies for house dust mite
control have been done in Europe. Before pesticide recommendations are
made in the United States, approval will be needed by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). For additional information, telephone
