Meet the Dust Mites, Tiny Roommates That Feast On Your Skin | Deep Look

https://www.youtube.com/embed/ACrLMtPyRM0

 

Long ago — around the time we started growing our own food – humans settled down. We went home, inside. We built permanent shelters to protect us from the elements… and keep the wild animals at bay. Or so we thought. Surprise! The animals were right there with us. They still are. This is dust. Zoom in and you find an ecosystem almost as elaborate as the one we left outside. But small enough for us to forget it exists. Dust is pretty much anything small. But the most important ingredient of dust — at least for the purposes of this story — is skin. Your skin. Her skin. His skin. Tiny flakes that fall off our bodies..

All day long. Researchers at The California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco collect and study house dust to find out what, exactly makes up this micro-universe. Even the cleanest homes are teeming with tiny, almost invisible roommates. — and even more so if you have pets or kids or live on the ground floor. Most homes have over 100 species – no matter how often you vacuum. Not just these guys, but these and these.

Most of these microscopic roommates are harmless. Just freeloaders, basically…But one can cause real trouble: the house dust mite.

This is like the roommate who leaves his crap around and makes you sick.

Dust mites don’t bite people. They don’t need to. We feed them. Constantly. Skin flakes are hard to digest. It’s like eating hair or feathers. So dust mites have powerful digestive enzymes to break the skin down. Those enzymes turn up in dust mite poop. And let’s just say you probably don’t want to know how much dust mite poop is in your house…

When people breathe dust, they breathe in the poop — and the enzymes, too — which irritate the lungs and can aggravate asthma, especially in kids. Like us humans, dust mites haven’t always lived inside either. These tiny relatives of spiders and scorpions once lived in birds nests. But then, some intrepid dust mites made the jump… from bird’s homes, to ours.. And as our society thrived and grew, so did theirs.

Low Moisture Mattress Cleaning


When was the last time you had your Mattress or Electric Blanket Cleaned?

If you answered NEVER, you're not alone. You see a lot of people are unaware of what is lurking inside their mattress, pillows and electric blankets and don't know how to clean them.

They wonder why they have Allergies, runny nose, streaming eyes, sore throat and a terrible night's sleep.

The dust mites that live in your mattress are the culprits...

Take a look at what came out of the Mattress in the Video below!

We shed skin every single day, kilos of it per year and this ends up in your mattress as food for the dust mites, along with moisture from perspiration, hair and skin particles, bacteria but the worst thing is the dead dust mites and dust mite excrement, this is what can trigger Allergies or even an Asthma attack.

It builds up over time until you body can no longer tolerate it and it reacts with symptoms of a runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, itchy eyes etc. 

What we do is extract all of that debris out of your mattress and pillows and take it down to a tolerable level and you're back to enjoying a good night's sleep.

We use a Dry Process, using a strong extraction vacuum, as mentioned in the video, the "normal" house hold vacuum or Hotel Housekeepers vac won't cut it.

It's just not powerful enough to life all of the debris out of the mattress.

Plus we turn the mattress over for your and treat the underside as well as the ensemble, or if you have slats on your base we remove the dust and treat them with our specialised anti-dust mite sanitising spray which has a build in Odour Neutraliser and Mould Inhibitor.

If you're going to have your mattress cleaned, we advise against using Hot Water Extraction because it soaks the mattress and this only feeds the dust mites, they thrive on moisture, wetting the mattress could void your warranty, and it could rust the springs on your bed.

Also, it takes hours to dry thoroughly, the only time we ever use hot water extraction is if there has been an accident on the mattress, if we have to remove urine or faeces we will need to use hot water extraction on that section of the mattress for health reasons, But, we only use it where the accident has occurred, we don't soak the whole mattress.

9 times out of 10 we only use the Dry Process for all of the reasons above. Which means your Mattress and Pillows are Dry In Minutes not Hours!

It's important to remember that if you have pets sleeping on your bed, you will need to have your bed cleaned more often because of pet dander and other debris that your pets bring into the bed.

Most people can get away with having their beds done once a year, but if you suffer from Asthma or Allergies, you may need to have it done at the start of every season.

Ring us now to have your bed smelling clean and fresh for the start of the season.

Hotel/Motel Owners – Why A House Keepers Vacuum Isn’t Enough…

Why You Need A Super Power Vacuum To Do The Job...

As cute as they are... the Housekeepers Vacuum Cleaner is not strong enough to remove all the build up of dirt, hair & skin particles, food crumbs, dust mites, dead and alive! skin particles and all the other yucky debris you could expect to find in a Hotel/Motel carpet or mattress.

The extraction unit that we use is super powerful and nothing escapes its strong suction!

Here are some facts about dust mites and mattresses...

Dust mites are found in any mattress where a food source is available. Dust mites feed off human skin flakes and sweat, of which we shed up to 1 gram and 1 litre per night respectively.

As they grow, reproduce and die, they shed up to 200 times their microscopic body weight in excrement, which when mixed with their bodies forms a highly allergenic dust, called guanine.

 Simply sitting on a mattress will emit a puff of this dust which is mostly invisible. However when your nose and mouth inhale it all night, the symptoms are far from invisible.

To remove the dust mites, a four stage process is used. First, a custom designed, industrial strength extraction system pulverizes and extracts the dust mites and their waste.

An anti-dust mite sanitizing treatment is applied, to neutralizing these health threats, and protects you from the main triggers which relate to respiratory, allergy and asthma attacks and illness. These Australian sprays are non-toxic, non-irritating, don’t contain alcohol and form a protective layer over the mattress. Dealing with bacteria and viruses and leaving the mattress clean and sanitised for the next guest.

How Creepy Is This?

When you think that most Hotel/Motel mattresses are probably never cleaned and these little guys breed and feed on dead skin cells, hair and skin particles and the moisture that is trapped inside a mattress from perspiration.

Whether it's your own mattress at home or a Hotel/Motel mattress... they need to be sanitised and the debris extracted at least twice per year to maintain a clean and healthy sleeping  environment.

The build up of live and dead dust mites, bacteria, hair and skin particles can trigger an Asthma attack with some people, while with others it can cause an Allergic reaction.

Plus when you think about it, you don't know who has been sleeping in that bed before you!

And clean sheets are not enough to protect you, even mattress protectors do little to stop the debris coming to the surface every time you turn over in bed.

I think you'd agree that the modern day mattresses need to be maintained regularly, whether it's at home or in Accommodation premises...

We've found using a dry process is the best practice because Dust Mites THRIVE on moisture, so adding water into the mattress is not a good idea, the same with Steam cleaning, Steam is not a dry process,..

With our process the mattress is dry in minutes because we extract all the debris out of the mattress  and then finish off with a very light spray of our safe, sanitising agent, it has no fragrance and it removes any odours that are lurking in the mattress as well.

We know there may be times when Hot Water Extraction is need in a small area of the mattress, for instance when a child has wet the bed or a pet has had an accident, in these cases, which are few, we need to use Hot Water Extraction for health and sanitising reasons.

But 9 times out of 10 , we can bring your mattresses and pillows back to a fresh clean state by using our Dry Mattress Cleaning & Sanitising Process.

You'll sleep so peacefully knowing that the creepy Dust Mites and all other debris has been removed from your bed.

Pets Sleeping on Your Bed…

Dogs sleeping on the bedDoes Your Dog or Cat Sleep On Your Bed?

For many people the answer is YES!

And that’s fine, but when you think of how often you pay to get your dog groomed, usually around $80 every 6 – 8 weeks, and compare that to how many  times you’ve had your mattress cleaned and sanitised for the same price, it’s definitely something you should consider.

And even if you don’t have Pets on your bed, you still need to have your mattress cleaned and sanitised to give you a good night’s sleep in a Fresh, Allergy Free environment.

You don’t need to have your mattress cleaned and treated every 6  – 8 weeks though, twice a year is sufficient to get rid of the build up of Dust Mites, dead and alive! Hair and Skin Particles, (we shed kilos of skin every year) and there’s the Perspiration smell left over from those hot summer nights, it’s not pleasant. Oh and pet dander if you have a pet. Pets on your bed

People think that putting clean sheets on the bed is sufficient, but it doesn’t remove all of the above,  plus when you turn over in bed, several times a night, the dust from all that stuff trapped in your mattress gets puffed up your nose and down your throat, causing severe allergies in some people, especially if you are allergic to Dust Mites.

Or you might suffer from Asthma and not having your bed cleaned and sanitised regularly to keep these things in check can sometimes trigger an Asthma attack.

You might notice that you’re not sleeping well and you’re waking up with red itchy eyes and a sore throat, this can be caused from the build up in your mattress.

When we treat your mattress, we use a dry process, so that you’re mattress is ready to sleep on in minutes, not hours.

We start by extracting with a very powerful machine, we then flip your mattress and do the same of the underside, we also extract and treat the ensemble (base) , or if you have a slatted base, we remove all the dust and build up on that too.

We then treat your mattress with a SAFE odour neutraliser and sanitiser and we’ll even do the pillows.

The pillows are important when you consider that Dust Mites thrive on moisture and there is plenty of moisture in your pillow along with Bacteria, Mould and Hair/Skin particles. People want to keep their favourite pillows for years and that’s fine, if they are maintained.

Tip:  We always use a dry process, unless there has been a urine “accident” where we need to extract with a hot water extraction machine to remove it.

But 99% of the time we use a dry process, this is because Dust Mites thrive on moisture and wetting the mattress (even with steam) can make the problem worse, plus if someone wets your whole mattress it can rust the springs and void your sales warranty, as well as encourage mould!

We really do have the BEST method for modern day mattress cleaning and sanitising, that’s why you’ll find us No 1 on Google searches.

It’s really worthwhile maintaining  your mattress, it’s not a lot of money for the benefit and peace of mind it will give you.

Removing Pet Urine & Odours Professionally…

Removing Pet Urine & Odours Professionally

SAFE2use® Odour Neutraliser has been  formulated to ELIMINATE Urine Odours on contact.

Does your cat or dog sleep on your bed or your sofa? Pets on your bed

It’s all good until they’re sick or have an accident!

Because if this happens on your carpet, bed or rug, it needs more than just simply cleaning the area, it needs to be extracted and treated with a sanitising solution that will break down the odour, not just mask it…

The SAFE2use® Odour Neutraliser is designed to do just that.

What happens is when the urine dries into your carpet or rug, it becomes even more pungent and if it’s not treated properly and the odour will entice your pet to re-soil again and again in the area.

Oh NOoooo!

Also, the urine from your pet can penetrate through to your carpet backing and underlay and through to the floor beneath (whether it’s cement of timber) then the area needs to be thoroughly treated with the SAFE2use® Odour Neutraliser.

And by the time we’ve finished, you won’t even know there’s been an accident, the area will be stain free and smelling fresh and clean.

In some severe cases the carpet may need to be pulled back and depending on the damage to the underlay, a section of the underlay may need to be replaced. But this is fairly rare, usually we can penetrate the effected area without having to remove the underlay.

The Odour Neutraliser will address this problem beautifully. It will be applied deep into the carpet or fabric where it will immediately start a chemical reaction with the urine crystals to sanitise and neutralise the odour at its source. Problem solved!!

Accidents sometimes happen with pets on your bed!

How to share your home with your family pets and still keep it smelling beautifully fresh and sanitised…

Here are the Steps we take to neutralise the Odour and Sanitise the contaminated area

If the exact spot cannot be located, our technicians will use a black light to detect the area to be treated, this allows a more intense treatment in the correct areas and removes the guess work.

The area will be rinsed and extracted to remove the urine and rinse the carpet thoroughly.

If necessary the carpet will be pulled back to reveal the underlay and if need be the underlay may have to be replace in that section, depending on the severity of the case.

The SAFE2use® Odour Neutraliser will be liberally applied to the floor boards or concrete and the backing of the carpet including the tacking boards.

Dwell time will be needed to allow the Neutraliser/Sanitiser to continue to break down the urine crystals, this process will be complete within 24/36 hours.
