What is CleanMyBed?

Pillows, mattresses, blankets and sheets are all home to dust mites – microscopic creatures that trigger allergies in children. Children’s immune systems are vulnerable and the cleanliness of their mattresses and pillows is essential during their developmental years. Little ones exposed to excessive allergens are likely to suffer from numerous allergies as they grow older.
Like all parents, you want to do the best for your children’s health. No matter how often you change your sheets or vacuum your mattress, you can’t completely rid your bed of the debris that accumulates. The dust mites, dead skin cells, dust mite fecal matter and pet dander build up over time, triggering a host of health issues for your family, including asthma, eczema and other common allergies.

“House Dust Mite is probably the commonest allergy in South Africa, and the one space we consistently spend the most amount of time in is in our bed! Removing pet dander, dead skin cells and other particulate matter from our mattresses can effectively reduce the replication of dust mites in our mattresses. I highly recommend CleanMyBed. Their technology is world-class, and they provide an efficient and thorough service!”

Dr Thulja Trikamjee,
Paediatrician and Allergologist, UCT (University of Cape Town) Lung Institute, Board member of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), and the World Allergy Organization (WAO)”

Why you’ll love CleanMyBed

But there is something you can do. By providing at least one area where your children’s bodies are not constantly under attack from allergens and other contaminants can make a difference to their health and wellbeing.

Why CleanMyBed works

CleanMyBed brings medical-grade cleaning technology straight to your home. Our service sanitises mattresses by removing all allergens, in particular dust mite fecal matter, which is the main cause of allergies. It also removes the millions of colony-forming viruses and bacteria that thrive in mattresses.

‘Allergy control starts in the bedroom. Protect and clean your bed.’

Peace of mind

UVC sanitisation has been around for over a century and is endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and trusted by hospitals around the world. You’ll be doing everything you can to ensure a healthy, clean, safe home, for you and your family.

Saves you time and money

Life is just too busy, but with regularly scheduled CleanMyBed appointments, it’s one less chore to think about, and it’s  uncompromisingly affordable. (And let’s face it,  you can’t stuff a mattress in the washing machine or guarantee a sunny day to dry it !)

Effective

Used in hospitals, hotels, and care homes globally, the technology uses short-wave germicidal ultraviolet (UVC) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms and as a surface disinfectant is 99.99% effective, empowering you to be in control of your children’s health.

“We don’t wash our clothes and get dressed without washing our bodies, so why do we wash our linen and make our beds without regularly and properly cleaning our mattress?”

FAQ’s

What is UVC?

UVC (ultraviolet) germicidal light is a process of sanitisation using short wavelength ultraviolet light to inactivate or kill microorganisms and pathogens. CleanMyBed uses RemUVe technology – the only process of UVC sanitisation using medically certified technology to ensure a clean, healthy bed that removes allergens and promotes a good night’s sleep.

How often does a bed need to be cleaned?

Allergists, paediatricians, allergy foundations and doctors alike recommend regular cleaning of beds. The American Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (AAAI) advises vacuuming your beds every two to three months. Good Housekeeping magazine recommends vacuuming your mattress every three weeks, while other sources recommend vacuuming on a monthly basis. At the very least, make the mattress vacuum a part of your seasonal cleaning.

In hospitality, every time guests check out you should sanitise the bed, the same way you change the sheets.

How is this different to steam cleaning?

No consumables are used. No water, no chemicals, so no odour, no residue and no drying time is needed. The CleanMyBed service is safe, fast, simple and effective.

Is the process different depending on the size of the bed?

No. The dose and the process are exactly the same, irrespective of size. Dosage in any sanitising process is always calculated by energy and exposure time, which must be constant. The further away from the surface, the less effective the dosage. So, energy x time = dose.

Will my mattress cover protect me?
If you use mattress covers, it is vital the mattress is cleaned prior to covering it again as you risk trapping everything inside the cover otherwise.
I am a small guesthouse owner. How will my guests know the bed has been sanitised?
For hospitality and enhanced cleaning protocols CleanMyBed will leave you with a verification certificate for each bed after every visit, giving you and your guest peace of mind that they are sleeping in the cleanest beds in the country. It’s an excellent service for boutique hotels, yacht charters and AirBnB accommodation too.
Can mattress cleaning and sanitising cure my allergy?
No, it does not cure to pre-existing allergies, but regular cleaning will help to reduce the severity and frequency of allergy reactions. In the case of asthmatics 85% of sufferers are allergic to house dust mite fecal matter.
Remind me how the process works?

The CleanMyBed process first removes dead skin cells using HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuum technology, and then UVC germicidal light to sanitise. This dual process ensures no allergens or pathogens, or their food source, physically remain on and in your mattress.
It’s powered by RemUVe, an Australian medical grade technology, and endorsed by the WHO, the World Trade Organisation and medical facilities around the world with 99.99% success for over 100 years.

How long does the process take?

The entire process takes about five minutes per bed.

Is this applicable for my home?

Absolutely. Sanitising your family’s beds is essential and should be part of your home cleaning routine. Did you know, we shed over 500g’s of dead skin cells every year? Skin cells contain bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, and beds contain millions of colony-forming viruses and bacteria, and it’s not just dead skin cell they feed off. With CleanMyBed, you can bring hospital grade hygiene and allergen removal to your home, safeguarding you and your family from allergy triggers.

What chemicals or detergents are used?

None. The process is chemical-free, with no odours or liquid residue, and no drying time is needed. CleanMyBed sanitises your mattress and pillows with UVC germicidal light to remove skin cells and other pathogen fodder which in turn helps protect your family from asthma, eczema and other common allergies.

How long must I wait until I can use the bed?

You can curl up in bed immediately. Unlike the alternatives, with UVC there is no down time which, if you are an Airbnb host or guesthouse, is ideal and will save you money.

Once I’ve used the CleanMyBed service, how else can I keep my child’s bedroom dust-mite-free?

Wash your child’s bedding weekly, and that includes all sheets, blankets, pillowcases and bedcovers in hot water that is at least 54.4 C, to kill dust mites and remove allergens. Vacuum carpets and upholstered furniture regularly. Use a vacuum cleaner with a double-layered microfilter bag or a HEPA filter to help decrease house-dust emissions from the cleaner. If your child’s allergies are severe, he or she should wait about two hours before going back in the vacuumed room.

Are children more prone to dust mite sensitivity or are you born allergic to dust mites?
There is evidence to show that growing up in environments where there’s high dust mite exposure they will be more likely to develop allergy problems, asthma or both.
