Why Clean a Mattress?

The mattress is, without a doubt, the dirtiest object we have close contact with. The average mattress contains millions of Dust Mites.

While the dust mites are relatively harmless, the faecal pellets of these Dust Mites contains a substance called Guanine which is a potent allergen. This makes your bed the unhealthiest place around you.

Health Facts

    »   There are various types of dust mite allergies. Most common is Asthma, and it is estimated that 85% of asthmatics are allergic to dust mites. Other dust mite allergies will also include eczema, rhinitis and symptoms such as morning sneezes, Nasal congestion, itchy red eyes. 

   »   Doctors and researchers agree that the single most important thing to be done to avoid asthma ,in the first place, is to eliminate or significantly reduce dust mite allergens in the home. 

Medical Research

    »   “Clinical studies have revealed that avoidance of dust mite allergens in early childhood can prevent the onset of asthma…” – Michael LeNoir Md 

   »   “Measures for reducing the levels of mite allergens in houses include removal of carpets from bedrooms as well as humidity control, vacuum cleaning, and the use of acaricides in the rest of the house. There is already evidence that these procedures can cause a major improvement in the symptoms of asthma” – International Workshop held in Bad Kreuznach, Federal Republic of Germany in collaboration with WHO 

What are Dust Mites

    »   House dust mites are tiny (up to 0.3 mm) animals related to ticks and spiders and live in house dust. There is not a house without them.

   »   It is estimated that there are up to 2 million house dust mites living in a mattress and in an average pillow, 10% of its weight is made up of dead skin and dust mites. 

   »   While the dust mites themselves are harmless, it is their droppings which are a potent allergen known as Guanine. 

   »   It is a scientific fact that exposure to the allergen guanine found in dust mite excrement is directly responsible for allergies and the resultant problems. 

   »   In fact, house dust mites and their droppings are the most important cause of asthma worldwide

We spend one third of our lives sleeping on mattresses that are soiled and as such, potentially dangerous to our health. This applies equally to a mattress that is only a few months old as it does to a mattress several years old.

Mattresses contain house dust mites (about 2 million in a mattress) and the excrements of dust mites contains allergen. With every movement of the body in bed this mix of house dust mites, their excrements, allergen and dust gets into our mouth, eyes, nose. This will cause allergy, itching, cough and other side effects such as inflammation of the mucous membrane and bronchitis.

It is incorrect to believe that bed sheets will protect against soil and dust mites. A bed sheet protects against these particles about as much as fishing net would protect against sand.

The solution

Hygiene and allergy problems can only be solved by eliminating the cause. Maxemirates uses a scientifically proven system which has been used in homes, hospitals and hotels over the years. Maxemirates utilize a 3-step cleaning process to ensure the allergen level is reduced to normal. The allergen testing and cleaning takes place on-site and the mattress remains on the bed during the entire cleaning process. The cleaning process takes no longer than 20 to 30 minutes and the bed can be used immediately after the cleaning is done.

Step 1:
Our HP cleaning head system generates high frequency waves which pulsate and loosen particles of dust, dirt and excrement in the mattress. These are then eliminated with a high power vacuum with a special HEPA filter which traps 99.97 per cent of everything it collects.
Step 2:
We use UVC Radiation Sterilising Unit to sterilise the mattress killing bacteria, viruses and spores. The efficacy of this chemical free disinfecting method is proven in the medical field.
Step 3:
We spray the surface of the mattress with a specially formulated Mattress Hygiene Spray. The spray is harmless to humans and animals and is based on several natural ingredients. It has antibacterial and insect repellent property.
