Over time mattresses will begin to accumulate dead skin, dust, dust mites, oils, bacteria, odors and other contaminants. These can lead to allergic responses in some people causing or aggravating asthma, eczema, wheezing, coughing, runny or stuffy nose, irritated eyes and poor sleep.

My mattress is only a year old - Why should I bother?

Your bed is where you spend one-third of your life, and the overall health of your mattress, what you deposit into it, and what you breathe out of it does affect your day-to-day life. Dead skin cells, dust mites, dust mite feces, sweat, bacteria, oils, lotions, pollen, and pet dander all build up in your mattress. An average night of sleep can yield over 12,000,000 dead skin flakes. This is what dust mites thrive on, and the heat from your body creates a perfect environment for them to live.

How long does the service take?

A typical mattress service will take approximately 20-30 minutes.

Is this safe for children and animals?

Absolutely! As this is a dry, chemical-free process, there are no harsh odors left behind and there are no chemicals that will remain in or on the mattress after the process. We can clean children’s mattresses, cots or even pet beds.

How long after the treatment do I need to leave the bed?

As there are no chemicals and we do not use steam that can penetrate the mattress, there is no moisture and no drying time is needed. You can make the bed as soon as you like after the treatment.

Why is me vacuuming the mattress not the same?

Vacuums or other devices that are not specifically designed to treat mattresses not only run the risk of damaging the mattress surface and they do not have the power or high intensity vibration required to extract the deeply embedded debris from your mattress. Additionally they have not been specifically designed with the powerful integrated commercial UV-C light which is proven to kill and eradicate bacteria, viruses, dust mites and other harmful allergy inducing debris.
