The Flaws of Vacuuming and Steam Cleaning for Mattress Hygiene
Do you take the time to vacuum or steam clean your mattresses in pursuit of a cleaner, healthier sleep? These intentions are commendable, and you’re on the right track but the stark reality is —vacuuming and steam cleaning, as common as they may be, are far from effective solutions. In fact, they might be making things worse.
The Vacuuming Dilemma
For those who opt for vacuuming their mattresses, there’s an alarming downside that many are unaware of. While standard vacuum cleaners can indeed remove some debris, they lack a critical feature: the HEPA 13 filter. This absence means that much of what you’re sucking out of your bed doesn’t just disappear; it goes right back into the air, only to settle back onto your mattress later. In essence, you’re merely shifting these unwanted particles around, not eliminating them.
The Pitfalls of Steam Cleaning
Another common approach is steam cleaning. While it might remove surface stains, it has its own set of issues. Steam introduces moisture into the mattress, which can affect its longevity, and worse, it can create a breeding ground for mould among other issues. Mould not only damages your mattress but also exacerbates the problems you’re trying to combat.
A Medical-Grade Solution
CleanMyBed offers a revolutionary alternative that’s dry, chemical-free and medical-grade. Our two-step process uses cutting-edge technology focused on the sanitisation and allergen removal in mattresses and pillows. We utilise HEPA 13 filtered vacuum technology to remove 99.9% of contaminants without reintroducing them into your sleeping environment. This medical-grade extraction process has earned the seal of approval from the Allergy Foundation of South Africa, assuring you of a thorough and effective clean that doesn’t compromise your air quality.
But we don’t just stop at extraction; we go a step further to sanitise your sleeping environment with germicidal light (UVC) technology, a medical-grade solution straight from hospitals. This ensures that your mattress is not only clean but also free from harmful microorganisms that can compromise your health and well-being.
Vacuuming and steam cleaning may seem like the go-to methods for mattress hygiene, but their effectiveness leaves much to be desired. It’s time to embrace a cleaner, healthier sleep environment that goes beyond the surface and targets the root causes of poor sleep, allergies, and health concerns. Welcome to a new era of mattress hygiene!
