Mattress Cleaning Cairns

This page might cause shivers to go up and down your spine, because we are going to discuss your mattress, dust-mites, and poop – yes, poop – and how our cleaning service can help you not worry about all that.
 
Dust-mites are tiny; hardly a ¼ of a millimetre long, so small that to see that, you need a microscope – which we wouldn’t advice as they look like alien monsters. They have a life span of about 100 days and they eat the skin flakes you shed. The females can lay at least 60, sometimes 100 eggs, and everyday they excrete twice their bodyweight.

Oh, and on any normal mattress that’s been used for a while, there could be as many as 10 million of them living there. And if you needed one last bit of creepy data, here it is: 10% of the weight of a pillow that has been used for 2 years or so is probably made up of these dead mites and their excrement.
 
Yeah … that makes me want to swap my pyjamas for a hazmat suit, too.
 
The real problem with dust-mites is that many people are allergic to their feces; contact with them either by the skin or being inhaled into your lungs could cause asthma, sneezing, coughing and eczema.
 
So, what can you do to get rid of the problem? Here’s the thing. The problem can’t be totally eliminated, but it can be reduced substantially. You have already predicted what one of those solutions are – it’s in the main heading of this page, and we’ll get there – but firstly, you can regularly wash your pillow cases and sheets in hot (not luke warm, not even warm, but hot) water. Dust mites much prefer warming, humid temperatures, which is not great news for Cairns, but keeping your room temperature under 21 degrees, and lowering the humidity can help. And using mattress covers also has some effect in reducing dust mite levels.
 
But as you have probably guessed, a good professional mattress clean by cleaning professionals such as the ones at 3C Carpet Cleaning Cairns can really get rid of the dead dust mites, their excrement and cut down drastically the number of live dust-mites on your mattress.

Unfortunately, vacuuming isn’t enough. Vacuuming might suck up the top layer of contaminants on your mattress, but it will not get to the deep layers of the fibres, where the dust-mites live.

And cleaning the mattress yourself may work out for you, but more often than not, what you will be left with is a wet mattress (which then introduces the problem of mould) that still carries an infestation of dust-mites.
 
To be confident that you have done the best you can possibly do to ensure a clean mattress, you need a professional cleaner like us. We only use environmentally friendly chemicals in our cleaning process, so you don’t have to worry about it affecting you, your family or pets.
