A good mattress can become very important to providing a high quality nights’ sleep. However, any mattress can also become the best host for many horrible things that you normally don’t want to think about. An average mattress is often contaminated with huge amounts of germs and bacteria, as well as dust mites and their faecal pellets. If the regular maintenance of the mattress is not taken care of seriously, your mattress is sure to become the dirtiest thing in your bedroom.If you have pets or young children at home, you need to sanitize your mattress in order to remove any harmful germs, bacteria, and dust mites that can cause illness. In order to prevent both bacterial and dust mites building up in your mattress that cause skin irritation and/or allergic reactions, you need to thoroughly clean and sanitize your mattress every 6 – 12 months. If you have a pet, or young children sharing your bed or you have just been sick, the frequency needs to be higher.
High exposure to dust mites is an important factor in the development of Asthma, especially for children. Dust mites can trigger a lifelong allergic reaction, but, unfortunately, there is no cure for it. In our daily life, there are some common symptoms that can also tell us dust mites have been harming our health. Those symptoms are usually respiratory- related, such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, running nose, wheezing etc. Other allergic reactions may include headaches, fatigue and depression. If you have young children at home, do pay more attention to some of these signs that could be caused by an allergic reaction due to dust mite contamination, or even worse, an asthmatic allergic reaction. Those symptoms are itchy nose (if your child is frequently rubbing the nose upwards), constant coughing, swollen under eyes, and frequent waking during the night. A general rule of cleaning and sanitizing your mattress is to repeat this procedure every 6 – 12 months.
Ultraviolet (UV)light is well known and practiced for many disinfection applications, such as food, air and water purification. The top feature of UVC technology is that it does not leave any chemical trace, in other words no residues. Wherever the UVC light hits, the item or surface is disinfected. While safe to human beings, it is able to destroy the micro-organisms’ DNA and therefore disable their future to multiply. It is effective for disinfecting micro-organisms such as pathogens, virus, spores and moulds.AllerX International has developed the first Mattress Cleaning System based on UV light, and it has been continuously researching and modifying in search of perfection. AllerX UV light Mattress Cleaning System V7 applies UV treatment for disinfection. Wherever the UV light hits, it disinfects items without chemicals, and it can kill viruses, bacteria, yeast, and fungus in seconds, which are two crucial criteria for cleaning mattresses. Our goal is to achieve a truly clean mattress down to the tiny micro-organisms, and make sure they don’t have a chance to revive within a short period of time.
