Mattress Sanitizing


Sanitizing mattresses are entirely different from us cleaning them. Mattress Sanitizing is a service we provide to rid your mattresses of dust mites, bacteria, germs and other pathogens living in your bedding. If you are looking to have a few stain lifted or removal like blood, urine, vomit, etc., there is a separate type of service; you should visit us at mattress cleaning, and we will be glad to service your needs.

Mattresses are a perfect breeding ground for dust mites. Bacteria-infested flakes of dry skin (we all shed skin) that build up in our beds offer the dust mite a rich source of ongoing food, enhancing their rate of reproduction. Research has shown that the average human body sheds as much as 3-5 grams of skin flakes every day. That's almost 4-5 lbs. of dead skin a year. Whoa!

Allergens produced by house dust mites are among the most common triggers of asthma. There are at least 15 mite allergens which are subdivided into groups. Group 1 and 2 allergens are the most problematic. Studies have shown the mean attributable fraction of adult asthma due to atopic sensitization was 30% for sensitization to dust mites. Taken into consideration this could mean as many as 1.2 billion people could have some form of chronic sensitization to dust mites.

The house dust mite (sometimes referred to by allergists as HDM) is a cosmopolitan guest in human habitation. Dust mites feed on organic detritus such as flakes of shed human skin and flourish in almost all environments. House dust mites are a common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. The mite's gut contains potent digestive enzymes (notably proteases) that persist in their feces and are major inducers of allergic reactions such as wheezing, coughing, itchy red eyes, nasal blocking and other undesirable symptoms that have a negative effect on humans. The mite's exoskeleton can also contribute to allergic reactions. The European house dust mite (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) and the American house dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae) are two different species, but are not necessarily confined to Europe or North America; a third species Euroglyphus maynei also occurs widely.

Method of Sanitizing

The most effective way to treat dust mites allergies is to use a professional service that uses a high-powered HEPA filtration extraction device combined with a UV-C germicidal light on all surfaces that come in contact with humans.


House dust mites reproduce quickly enough that their effect on human health can be significant. Since dust mites depend on moisture to survive, they are most often found in bedding such as pillows and most types of upholstered items found throughout a home, hotel room or any multi-bed facility. Dust mites numbers can be reduced by replacing carpets with hard surfaces that are easier to clean. Dust mites that may exist in linens can be eradicated by washing and drying these items in lethal temperatures of 221 degrees F (221 °F) or more.

Asthma and Allergies

Allergens produced by house dust mites are among the most common triggers of asthma. There are at least 15 mite allergens which are subdivided into groups. Group 1 and 2 allergens are the most problematic. Studies have shown the mean attributable fraction of adult asthma due to atopic sensitization was 30% for sensitization to dust mites. Taken into consideration this could mean as many as 1.2 billion people could have some form of chronic sensitization to dust mites.

The allergy occurs because the immune system of allergy-affected individuals, for reasons not fully understood, misinterprets a usually innocuous substance as a disease agent and begins producing a type of antibody against it. This is called the 'primary antibody response. The antibody produced during this response binds to basophils in the bloodstream and to a similar type of cell called mast cells in the tissues. When the person again encounters the allergen, these basophils and mast cells release histamine, prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which causes inflammation of the surrounding tissues, resulting in allergic symptoms.

Contrary to popular belief, dust mites cannot be removed from bedding by separating the bedding from skin or by using some type of mattress cover. In some cases, that will cause dust mite populations to grow faster on the surface.
