MARIA Dust Testing Will Show The Presence Of Dog And Cat Dander, Mouse And Rodent Feces And Urine, And Dust Mites By Type.
ERMI dust testing shows the presence of molds.
If your Allergist or Medical Team find you are allergic to dog or cat dander, mice or rodent feces or urine, or dust mites, then MARIA dust testing it is worthwhile.
Many people are allergic to dust that usually contains molds, pollen, cockroach parts, and dust mites. This dust will be found in highest levels in carpeting and carpets as well as upholstered furniture.
To eliminate dust mites from a stuffed toy or a pillow, put the item in the freezer for 24 hours before laundering. Be sure to place items in the dryer until no more lint is collected.
If Dust Mites Are Your Primary Concern, There Are Less Expensive Tests Than MARIA Dust Testing That Show Dust Mites.
Most carpets, carpeting, and upholstered furniture have dust mites. Frequent vacuuming with a HEPA vacuum will help. To most effective cure for dust mites is to remove the carpets and carpeting. That’s not always realistic, so vacuuming will help. We don’t recommend pesticide to kill dust mites. Of course, we will perform MARIA testing for you at your request. We want to be sure you will benefit from this expensive testing. We can request our lab analyze for a specific animal, such as horse, if needed.
MARIA dust Testing Limitations
MARIA dust testing is a composite sample of the dust in your home, office, or vehicle. As a composite sample of dust taken from multiple areas the sources can’t be identified. As an example, we couldn’t say where or, more importantly, when a mouse was present in your home.
It can be important in your medical treatment plan to know if these MARIA dust allergens are present in your environment; and how much of these allergens is present.
