Vancouver Mattress Cleaning: Dust mites and Bedbugs Begone

June 26th, 2019 | by Angelo |    0   

For people who want a cleaner, healthier sleep, regular mattress cleaning is a must. As steam cleaning specialists, the team at Angelo’s FabriClean provides mattress cleaning in Vancouver using all natural, high-pressurized steam extraction.

Pest control is still the most effective solution for ridding the home of pests, but for those reluctant to pump their home full of poison, regular mattress cleaning can be an effective solution that inhibits the presence of dust mites and bed bugs.

These critters live and breed in your mattresses, blankets, pillows, sofas, and carpets. They thrive in warm, dark conditions and can number in the millions. They feed on the dead skin that people shed every day. Although these creatures are microscopic, the effects of their presence can often be felt. Infestation can trigger mild to severe allergic symptoms that including irritated eyes, runny nose, sneezing, sinus pain, headaches and coughing. And if there’s an asthmatic or allergy sufferer in the house, it can be much worse.

Steam is a very effective method for killing critters like dust mites and bedbugs at all stages of development. It’s important to use a steam cleaner and not a shampooer, which can saturate a mattress, leaving it prone to mould and mildew. Additionally, most carpet cleaning machines simply do not reach the temperatures necessary to eradicate these critters.

Steamers work by delivering lethal temperatures to areas where dust mites and bedbugs live. Steam is an incredibly effective cleaner, penetrating about 3/4″ below the surface. It’s also great for reaching the nooks and crannies critters will be hiding. With surface temperatures that hit about 160-180°F immediately after the nozzle has passed, steam effectively kills these tiny pests that may be disturbing your sleep.

The technicians at Angelo's Carpet Cleaning use a natural, organic, chemical-free process that effectively destroys dust mites, bacteria, spores, allergens, dust, and decaying skill cells. Mattresses are thoroughly cleaned and then sterilized with a chemical-free disinfectant, so there’s no need to worry about inhaling harmful chemicals in your sleep.

For best results, bedding should be washed at least once a week to minimize the presence of oil, sweat, skin, and fluids. When it comes to the mattress itself, aim for a minimum of once or twice a year. If bed bugs are suspected, remember that they can linger in places other than the mattress, so be mindful of any drapes and upholstery that may be present.
