Sleeping with the Enemy? You May Need a Mattress Sanitizing


April 06, 2016

Do you wake up sneezing and itching, with watery eyes or a runny nose? Then you may be allergic to indoor pollutants that include dust mites, dog and cat dander, and cockroach allergens. The worst part is that these pollutants multiply easily in bedding and mattresses because there are a lot of dead flakes of human skin there. A typical mattress can contain tens of thousands of dust mites and nearly 100,000 dust mites can live in one square yard of carpet. They even live in the cleanest of homes, making them somewhat difficult to remove. Dust mites may not be difficult to completely eliminate, but mattress sanitizing on a regular basis can surely reduce their concentration by millions and with that reduction, improve allergy symptoms.

Dust mites are the No. 1 indoor allergen. They are microscopic, eight-legged (arachnoid), invisible to the human eye, and so small that they can crawl through the bed's fabrics. They feed on flakes of shed human skin cells and pet dander, and they live in temperatures of 68-77F with humidity levels of 70-80%. They are mostly found in mattresses, carpets, bedding, furniture, and stuffed toys.

Dust mites themselves are not the actual problem the problem is a protein found in fecal matter that is lighter than air. It becomes airborne when disturbed by activity, like tossing and turning during the night. People can have an allergic reaction to that protein, causing annoying symptoms like coughing, sneezing, wheezing, or watery eyes. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), over 20 million people suffer from dust mite allergies.

Dust mites are not easily eliminated due to their microscopic nature and fast reproduction. The amount of dust mites that can be found in the bedroom, where people spend about one third of their time, is alarming, even if you don't suffer from dust allergies. A good way to minimize the amount of dust mites and pet dander from your mattresses and bedding is with a mattress sanitizing service that combines ozone and heat. How does this work? Ozone is a 100% organic, safe, and natural way to sanitize your mattresses. It penetrates the fibers, eliminating germs, harmful bacteria, viruses, and pests from your mattresses. Germinator Mobile Sanitizing uses ozone gas and heat.
