Why Your Mattress Needs Cleaning

Like any other surface we use and come in contact with regularly, mattresses should be cleaned thoroughly.

And because it is fair to say that we spend a significant proportion of time in contact with our mattress, this is particularly important.

To make matters worse, many of us, especially children and babies will often wake up with a runny nose, watery eyes, headache or other typical allergy symptoms?

In most cases, these symptoms are caused by Dust Mites that feed on the dead skin cells we shed while we sleep.

These creatures are prevalent in mattresses because of the amount of time we spend sleeping on them.

What Are Dust Mites?

House dust mites are microscopic arthropods related to ticks and live in house dust. Unfortunately, there is no escaping them, there in every household.

On the good side though, they don’t do half as much damage as carpet moths do.

If you’re squeamish then read no further!

It is estimated that there are up to 2 million house dust mites living in your mattress.

The good thing is, though, dust mites themselves are harmless, phew!

But interestingly, their excrement is a potent allergen known as Guanine.

The fact is, exposure to the allergen guanine found in dust mite droppings is directly responsible for allergies.

House dust mites are a common cause of asthma worldwide

What Is The Best Option?

We can clean the mattresses in your home and also treat them with an Anti-Allergen Post Spray Treatment.

This treatment de-natures dust mite allergens to prevent you from suffering so severely.

Ideally, we would recommend cleaning and treating your mattresses twice a year.

If you turn your mattress on a regular basis it is necessary to clean both sides. If you do not turn the mattresses it may only be necessary to clean the side you sleep on.

This process is identical to how we would clean a carpet although we would use a special cleaning tool which we use for settee cleaning and is designed specifically for thoroughly cleaning the creases and button indentations of your mattress.
