Are You Sleeping With the Enemy?

5/9/2016 (Permalink)

Do you wake up in the morning with itchy skin, a stuffed up nose, sneezing, wheezing, headaches, or are suffering from asthma? Then your mattress may be contaminated.

The mattress is one of the dirtiest places in the home containing millions of dust mites and may be housing bacteria, mold and mildew, fungal spores or viruses. Mites produce potent digestive enzymes that are allergenic to humans. If your mattress is 8 years old or more, is has more than doubled in weight.

The Simple Truth

We all release as much as a pint of sweat each night and our bodies are permanently shedding skin. Adding these to the bacteria that are formed from other fluids our bodies release and deposit on the mattress, it makes you wonder why this problem has never been remedied until now. The Hygienitech Mattress & Upholstery Cleaning & Sanitizing System uses a high powered HEPA filtration device to extract dust mites and other debris along with suing a UV-C germicidal light to sanitize.

Traditional household or commercial vacuums do not have the extraction power to remove the highly resilient dust mites, bacteria, allergy triggering contaminants and other harmful debris that are deeply embedded in the mattress or the germ killing mechanism to disinfect and sterilize. Studies on protective covers show them not to work effectively. Also from our experience, whenever we have tested a mattress with a protective cover, the mattress has tested positive for contamination.

So how do you determine if you mattress shows contamination? We have a free no obligation detection test that only takes a few minutes. We take collected sediment form your mattress to perform a sample allergen test, which will enable you to see firs-hand the level of contamination that exists.

Once we determine the level of contamination, we then use the Hygienitech Mattress & Upholstery Cleaning & Sanitizing System. This system combines high frequency, pulsating waves, incredible suctions and a patented, high intensity germ killing, UV-C Germicidal lamp to pulverize and extract all the dust mites, bacteria, viruses, fungal spores, harmful organisms and other sediment that accumulated on your mattress or upholstered items. It is a dry and chemical free process that only takes about 15 to 20 minutes for a mattress, and your bed can be made again in 10 minutes after the processThis process is dry and chemical-free, requires no drying time, and has a 72+ hour residual effect to continue destroying allergens. It is also safe on all types of pillows and mattresses, is color safe, will neutralize odor causing bacteria, and does not require the removal of the mattress from the bed. The system is completely portable, and requires no set up time.

We recommend you schedule your mattress to be cleaned every 6 months. However, if you suffer from sever allergies or asthma, then we recommend servicing the mattress once every 3 months.
