Mattress hygiene is a confronting topic, especially when you take into consideration that every hour, your skin sheds up to 600,000 particles of skin. Over the course of a year, that amount adds up to 1.5 pounds of shed skin! Worse than all this, perhaps, is the fact that your shed skin is pretty much comfort food for the average dust mite. Worse still, is the fact that the average mattress is home to a horrifying number of the critters- a population of any number between 100,000 to 10 million of them, all invisible to the naked eye.
Dust mites love the warm, damp environment that a mattress and a sleeping, sweating, living human being create. Together the two provide the ideal breeding and feeding environment. Given this information, it’s easy to see why regular mattress cleaning is of significant benefit to everyone – which is where our team can step in and make an incredible difference in your sleeping zones.
A dust mite colony can be responsible for: Asthmatic symptoms, Hives, Bronchial distress, Sneezing, Itchy Watery eyes, Sinus inflammation, Respiratory inflammation and more.
As IICRC accredited professionals, our team offer professional mattress sanitising services incorporating the power of steam extraction and extreme suction to completely remove dust mite colonies from your bedding.
Can I sleep on my mattress straight away?
Our process requires 3-4 hours of drying time in which you will not be able to sleep in your bed. The type of mattress you have will dictate how long the drying time should take.
We recommend investing in our Anti-Allergen treatment pre-spray, which is a non-toxic, safe solution free of solvents and perfumes that is particularly useful to allergy sufferers. This solution lasts for up to 6 months, offering prolonged protection from the nasties that cause most sensitivities!
