Leather Sofas Thought To Help Allergy Sufferers Alleviate Dust Mite Symptoms
While you know to stay away from fresh flowers and gardening when pollen levels are high, did you also know that your fabric sofa could be a cause of itchy eyes, irritated skin, scratchy throat and a blocked nose?

According to allergy research, the microscopic dust mite is the most popular irritant in Britain. It’s thought that 80% of asthma sufferers are allergic to dust mites, while the microscopic mite is also known to provoke eczema and rhinitis. The house mite thrives in warm conditions which are well supplied with skin and dander to feast on – this makes them a pest even in winter. While swapping carpets for wooden floors and washing bed linen at 60 degrees can help, exchanging your old fabric sofa for a real leather sofa will also go a long way towards alleviating symptoms.
As dust particles can collect in the swatches of a fabric sofa just as they can in carpets, removing them from the home removes the breeding ground for the mites. Allergy experts explain that mite faeces around the same size as a single grain of pollen are released in dust, which is kicked up when you sit down on a fabric sofa or when a carpet or woollen rug is vacuumed. Investing in a genuine leather sofa or aniline leather sofa removes this breeding ground for the bugs and keeps the irritants out of the air.
Keeping a leather sofa clean and dust free is a simple process, you can simply wipe over with a specialist leather cleaner or dust with an electrostatic duster which the dust clings to (normal dusters simply push the dust particles around and into the air).
