Dust mites thrive on the skin flakes we shed every night. The recommended service interval is once every four to six months.
Traditional household or commercial vacuums do not have the power to remove the highly resilient dust mites and other harmful debris that are deeply embedded in the mattress. And, they do not utilize the all important germ killing UV-C light, the key to effective disinfection.
It depends on the size of mattress, but between 15-20 minutes for a single mattress and about 20-25 minutes for a double mattress.
You only need to wait for the cleaning process between 15-25 minutes. You can then make the bed and go straight to sleep. You don’t even need to air the room unless you want to.
No. We make no mess and leave the room exactly how we found it. All you will have to do is to make the bed when we leave.
No, it doesn’t offer any cure, but it will help to reduce the severity and frequency of allergies. Many of our customers have found that their particular allergy disappears altogether and in the case of asthmatics, about 90% of sufferers are allergic to House Dust Mite droppings, so the chances of us helping an asthma sufferer is very high.
We have found that a new mattress, if used on a regular basis, would benefit from a clean after about 6 months use.
Yes, most definitely. Mattresses that are old will have much higher levels of dust mites and droppings, dead skin, fungal spores, bacteria and germs. This will also apply to hand me down ones as well. Our process is extremely effective and will make them clean and fresh again.
There have been studies that show them not to work effectively. Also, from our experience, whenever we have tested a mattress with a protective cover, the mattress has always tested positive for contamination. However, if you have got them already or you are intending to buy some, then only use them on a brand new mattress or one that has just been cleaned and sterilized by us. If you don’t, all you are doing is incubating the mould, bacteria and fungus that is already present.
The dust mite season is actually quite erratic. It may be higher in the summer in many climates because of the warmth and higher humidity. But people who are sensitive to dust mites often will have symptoms all year-round. And in the winter time, when people spend more time indoors and keep windows and doors closed, dust mite particles are often still in the house, and they still can be a problem.
The main area of concern is in very young children growing up in environments where there’s high dust mite exposure — or other types of allergen exposure. There is some evidence that if an infant or a young child grows up where there’s a high exposure to sensitising substances, he or she will be more likely to develop allergy problems, asthma or both.
