Causes and Effects

On average we spend a third of our day, 8 out of 24 hours in bed… But what are you sleeping with in there? 

There are some obvious cues on when bed cleaning is required… Perhaps an accidental urine spill or mattress discolouration or mould after time in storage, simple visual indicators to call the professionals. 

There is also a lot going on within your mattress that you cannot see. We sweat up to 400ml per night, so where does all of this go? Through your sheets and into your mattress! Our warm bodies create the perfect living environment for microscopic dust mites feeding on our dead skin that is shed while sleeping. 

Mattress cleaning is not only for old beds, experts suggest that high levels of dust mites (up to a whopping 2 million) can be reached within the first 6 months of a new mattress purchase!

These nasties can cause some bad effects including irritated eyes, headaches, a runny nose, itchy skin, sneezing, ear infections (especially in children) coughing, allergies and can also trigger asthma attacks.

Luckily, there is a simple solution. Enjoy a mattress cleaning without nasty chemicals, and unbelievably only 60 minutes downtime after treatment. See how with our latest technology bed sanitisation solution leaves your bed fresh and healthy.

  • Allergies

    The funny thing about allergens is that the particles themselves are harmless to the human body. The problem is that the immune system recognises them as foreign substances and launches all-out war against them.
