The Mattress Doctor - Specialist  Mattress  Cleaning for North London and North West London

Why Clean ?

The mattress is, without a doubt, the dirtiest object we have close contact with. Men, women and children spend one third of their lives sleeping on mattresses that are extremely soiled and as such, potentially dangerous to their health. This applies equally to a mattress that is only a few months old as it does to a mattress several years old.

It is erroneous to believe that a sheet will protect against this kind of dirt, consisting of micro particles (1 - 20 microns).

A bed sheet protects against these particles about as much as a fishing net would protect against sand. With every movement of the body in bed, dust and mite excrement are churned up. The mattress acts as a bellows, blowing dirt into mouth, nose, eyes and onto the skin.

This photograph illustrates the contamination we remove from an 'average' mattress.

Some of the many potentially harmful organisms found in this contamination include dust mites, dust mite excrement, bacteria, viruses, fungii and flakes of decaying dry skin.

Mattresses are the perfect environment for Dust Mites. Dust Mites are tiny creatures that are members of the Arachnid (spider) family. They thrive in temperatures of more than 20°C (70°F) with a relative humidity of 60-80%. These are the conditions found almost exclusively within the mattresses you and your family sleep on every night.

Bacteria infested flakes of dry skin from you and your pets offer Dust Mites a rich source of food. Their reproductive rate is very high. Natural enemies, such as predatory mites, are extinct. Up to 2,500 Dust Mites have been counted in one gram of dust. That means there are up to two million Dust Mites in one double size mattress! Each Dust Mite excretes approximately 20 pellets of excrement a day which contain allergens in the form of protease enzymes. These can attack the protective lining of the nose, throat and lungs. Moving around in bed makes the allergens airborne and easy to inhale. This stimulates the body's immune system, triggering the symptoms of asthma and rhinitis.

Those who use our service include:

• People with breathing related health conditions such as asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis, early morning coughing and wheezing.

• Those suffering from eczema and skin irritations.
