Mattress Cleaning - "Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite"

Make An Appointment Today - Look To The Right, You're Sleeping With Them

Dust mites are extremely microscopic bugs that live in our bed sheets, pillows, curtains, the kids stuffed animals, toys, our rugs, the upholstery and most importantly where we spend over half of our life, our bedroom mattresses.


A typical mattress may have up to 10 million dust mites inside of them.  Dust mites prefer warm, moist surrounding such as the inside of a mattress.  In order to expand and grow, dust mites have a preferred food source of both human and animal skin flakes.  The average human sheds about 1/5 an ounce of dead skin each and every week supplying them with a viable food source.  So if you have a family pet that frequents the carpet or his resting spot, there could be a possibility of 3 to 4 times as many dust mites in those locations as it is in a household mattress.


What makes dust mites so dangerous is the droppings they leave behind which can trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions.  They attack your respiratory system and can cause extreme allergic reactions, especially to people who suffer from asthma.  Other signs of dust mites are coughing and wheezing, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, and sneezing.  All of these symptoms ultimately leads to a reduction in your quality of life.


In order to avoid dust mites and keep them from multiplying, here are some simple steps one can take:


  1. Steam clean your mattresses and upholstery furniture by a professional.  High heat-cleaning is an effective form of dust mite control.
  2. Use a mattress pad and pillowcase all the time.
  3. Consider changing your carpeting to hardwood.
  4. Wash all sheets, blankets, pillowcases, and bedcovers in hot water that is at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Sprinkle or spray some essential eucalyptus oil and mix with baking soda over your mattress and vacuum after 30 minutes of dwell time.
  6. Vacuum daily with a HEPA filter vacuum.
  7. Reduce the amount of heat and humidity in your rooms to 50 percent or lower.  You may also want to lower your room temperature to cool.
  8. Dust with a damp cloth where dust is present.  Dust mites feed on dead skin, dander, and other things that are found in dust.
  9. Keep pets out of the bedroom, dust mites love (Pet Dander)
