Professional Cleaning Of Your Mattress
Why should Mattresses be cleaned regularly? Bed Mates!
Constant room climate, temperature and humidity in particular make the mattress an ideal environment and breeding place for house dust mites, bacteria, viruses and spores. One third of our life is spent asleep in our beds. Each night we loose an average of 1.5 grams of dry skin, which settles on the mattress or is drawn into it, where it provides a rich source of food for the house dust mite.
The house dust mite produces 200 times its body weight in excrement during its lifespan. This excrement at first adheres to the fibres in the fabric as small mucus coated balls. These decompose into a fine powder like dust containing allergen called GUANINE, which is known to cause allergic reactions in humans.
As is the case with many things in life, it is only when things reach high concentration, that they become dangerous. With as many as one million dust mites in a mattress the concentration of GUANINE containing mite excrement is extremely high and this is where the danger, which should not be underestimated, begins.
Numerous scientific reports and studies confirm that GUANINE represents a real health risk and is the major cause of asthma attacks, inflammation of the skin, reddening of the eyes, coughing and inflammation of the mucous membrane, particularly in the nose. The real risk though lies in the fact, that once an allergy has developed against a certain substance, the person has this for the rest of his or her life.

The only logical solution is to eliminate the cause of the problem. It is unreasonable to expect people to change their mattresses frequently nor is it practical to lower room temperature and humidity.
allerx™ eliminates the dust and dust mites and kills the disease carrying and spreading materials in you mattress. This is especially important for the elderly and infants, who are more sensitive and at risk of suffering serious problems related to allergies.
How Does it Work?
The allerx™ mattress cleaner generates high frequency waves which loosen the particles of dirt in the mattress, pulverizes them and eliminates them with a vacuum that is adjusted to suit the mattress. At the same time, UVC rays are used to kill bacteria, viruses and fungal spores.
The method of chemical free disinfecting is already proven in the medical field. It is the easiest and most effective way to control allergen in the mattresses with a guaranteed chemical free cleaning process. The equipment’s operation is simple and causes neither noise or dust. It is not dangerous to humans or animals. Mattresses may be left on the bed frame during cleaning.
House dust mites are not restricted to the mattress, their excrement can be found in carpets, rugs, upholstered furniture, window curtains and soft toys.
With new developments, we are able to guarantee a dust mite allergen free environment for a period of six months!
