“Cultures of dust mites released onto a sofa migrate through clothing to other parts of the home and the family car over a l0-day period. The highest concentrations are found in carpeted basements, human bedding and dog beds. Older mattresses and carpets have higher mite populations.”

—Alice M. Jeromin, DVM, DACVD
