Mattress cleaning is often one of the most neglected household tasks, but it is also one of the most important. Protect your family from dust mites, bacteria, dirt, and other allergens with our mattress cleaning services. Our team of professional cleaners will come to you, once or on a regular schedule to remove toxins from your mattress and keep it clean. Mattresses need thorough and effective cleaning by a professional cleaner every six months, using an allergen-reducing extraction method.
AllAces is on of Brisbane’s most reputable cleaning companies, offering services beyond upholstery and mattress cleaning. Our technicians are fully trained and qualified to carry out air analysis testing to detect issues with allergy causing mould, dust, and other airborne toxins. We do not just clean your mattress; we ensure your families safety. Mattresses are magnets for all kinds of creepy crawlies, for sweat, oil and fluids – not to mention dirt and dust.
Around a third of our lives are spent on pillows and mattresses, but mattress cleaning is often neglected. Mattresses are an expensive part of your house – often ranging from $100 to $10,000. But they also need professional cleaning every six months.
Mattress contamination can include dust mites and their faeces, sweat stains, body oils, dead skin etc. A dust mite is generally invisible to the naked eye. During their lives dust mites moult several times and lay up to 300 eggs. They produce up to 100 faecal pellets a day, resulting in a total waste production of 200 times their own weight. Dust mite droppings are slimy, but when mixed with other substances will form household dust.
Allergies that are caused by dust mite faeces are a major problem that seems to be increasing. Further, it has been known for some time that they can cause serious health issues. Among these are rhinitis, or inflammation of the nose and eyes, as well as conditions such as eczema and asthma. These are caused by immune system responses, and around 40% of the population are affected at some point in their life.
The microscopic dust mite, which lives indoors, can be controlled to help fight against allergens. Because we spend so much of our lives in our bed and our bedrooms, these rooms are especially problematic for those suffering from allergies. The skin scales that we shed into our carpets, mattresses, pillows, and linen are eaten by dust mites. As a result, the mites can easily breed in these places.
“The WHO found that sensitisation to dust mites had “been observed to be strongly associated with asthma in many areas of the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom, the mid-Atlantic and southern United States and especially New Zealand” and that the prevalence of asthma was rising. The organisation cited research showing that the use of protective mattress covers alone was not sufficient to reduce exposure and allergic reactions in a domestic setting.”
As a partner to hotels across The Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, AllAces provides professional mattress cleaning to protect your guests and your reputation. The World Health Organisation Report on dust mite issues in Australian hotels leaves your accommodation vulnerable to legal action should a guest suffer asthma due to dust mite overpopulation.
Simply replacing mattresses based on occupancy rates is not only insufficient to manage your guest’s health, but also time consuming and costly. Protect your reputation, protect your guests, and protect your hotel from future litigation. Our mattress cleaning services are simple to book, as a one-off service or on a regular basis.
Preventing mattress re-infestation
A neutralising spray can also be added, which will keep allergen irritants to a minimum between standard cleans. Your plan for controlling allergens should include frequent cleaning of upholstery and carpets.
