Mattress Cleaning Helps Allergy Sufferers

When You Go to Bed Do You Know What You Are Sleeping With?


Most people would be horrified to realise their mattress is full of contaminants such as dead skin cells, dust, animal dander, perspiration, bacteria, dust mites and bed bugs.
Mattress cleaning specialist Glen Carbis said most people do not realise the long term affect these contaminants found in their mattresses have on their health.
“Quite often we see people suffering from respiratory problems, sniffles or sore eyes which could be a result of a dirty mattress,” Carbis said. “The sad thing is they have no idea that their mattresses are even dirty.”
“For allergy sufferers, the bedroom is the primary source of dust mite exposure in the home. About 60 precent of the mites in the home are found in the mattress, as we spend one third of our life in bed—shedding skin, hence feeding dust mites,” stated Carbis. “The average person perspires approximately 250ml per night. This liquid then stains our mattresses, linen and pillows. Perspiration in unprotected beds can lead to bacteria and mould causing health conditions such as asthma.”
“To effectively kill dust mites and control dust mite allergens, the mattress should be regularly cleaned and properly treated with the Healthgard treatment suitable for your situation, about every 6 months for people with allergies. Invest in mattress and pillow protection that will improve your sleep hygiene and protect your bed from bacteria, mould, dust mites, spills, perspiration stains and allergens.”
Carbis runs Jumbuck Cleaning and Restoration in Melbourne.
