A Good Night’s Sleep Is a Healthy Night’s Sleep
We don't like to think that the environment we are sleeping in is dirty. However, common sense dictates that the mattress serves as a ready and willing depository for organic and inorganic impurities.
In a normal lifetime, a body will have more close contact with a mattress than with any other piece of furniture, and the simple truth is we all release as much as a pint of sweat each night and our bodies are permanently shedding skin.
Everyone should be sleeping in a healthy and sanitized environment, whether it’s in their home or at a hotel or any other type of multi-bed facility, and you can make this possible by joining the global family of Hygienitech Systems service providers.
Recent studies have shown that exposure to house dust mite allergens is a significant risk factor for the development of allergic diseases, such as asthma and rhinitis or hay fever. According to Dr. Zeldin, of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), "Results from an earlier study suggest that over 45% of U.S. homes, or approximately 44 million dwellings, have bedding with dust mite allergen concentrations that exceed a level that has been associated with allergic sensitization.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), dust mites are the #2 cause of allergy problems while the #1 is topped only by pollen. There are likely millions of them in your home. Here are some interesting facts:
- Humans shed 10,000 million scales of bacteria-laden skin each day, most end up in the mattresses
- Dust mites produce 200 times their body weight in excrement during their normal life span
- Dust mites feast for up to 170 days on our shed skin
- Dust mites spread rapidly, and a female dust mite can lay 300 eggs
- They can live without food for up to a year
The good news is that the Hygienitech Systems process is a totally "green," no-chemical, dry process that is capable of destroying all impurities found in a mattress. This is only possible by sanitizing both the surface and the inside of the mattress by combining a penetrating UV-C germicidal lamp with a powerful extraction device.
