Is Your Bed Making You Sick?

Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant effects. These levels of indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because it is estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors.

Allergies are an over reaction of the immune system to foreign substances. This over reaction weakens your immune system, draining your energy and leaving you more susceptible to infectious diseases caused by viruses and bacteria.

Allergic reactions can range from mildly uncomfortable to life threatening, as in a severe asthma attack. Health experts are especially concerned about people with asthma. These people have very sensitive airways that can react to various irritants, making breathing difficult. The estimated number of people with asthma has risen over 59 percent since 1970, to over 100 000 people in the Greater Montreal Area. The number of related deaths has increased by 68 percent.

The household dust mite (otherwise known as a BED BUG!)

The largest source of indoor air pollution is from the common household dust mite. In February, 1993, John W. Maunder, Ph.D., Director of the Medical Entomology Center at the University of Cambridge, UK, published a paper entitled “Carpets, Mattresses House Dust Mites and Asthma” in which he states, “There is no longer room for serious doubt about the dominant role of the house dust mite in both the initial induction of asthma and in the subsequent triggering of wheezy attacks.”

You sleep 1/3 of your life which means you are breathing in the fecal matter more heavily eight hours out of the day.Latest research shows that 40% of the Canadians that suffer from any type of allergy, suffer because of the dust mites that are accumulated in the mattress and the rest of the household. It's also known that 90% of people who suffer from asthma have an allergy to the house dust mite.

Remember also your pets release dust mites the same as humans, and this causes more pet allergies for most people. To cut down on the dust mites caused by pets its best you groom your pets outside. Pets should be bathed on a weekly basis.

How do you eliminate Dust Mites?

Research shows that properly cleaning your mattress is the best way to get rid of dust mites and keep them away. At Evolution cleaners, We are Montreal's experts in dealing with bed bugs! We clean and sanitize the mattress Starting by a high heat steaming all over the entire surface of the mattress. High heat is the most effective way of killing dust mites. We follow by a deep injection/extraction cleaning procedure in order to remove dust mite remains and byproducts as well as any other soiling or contaminants.  A dust mite treatment is then sprayed on the mattress. The dust mite treatment provides extra protection beyond the cleaning up to 6 months. At this point all dust mites are gone and your mattress is like brand new. A treatment of scotch guard on top of this is ideal and will keep the dust mites out. Evolution cleaners recommends cleaning your mattress at least once a year.

Regular cleanings are important… for your entire home (carpets, furniture, curtains, blinds, bedding) not just to maintain the appearance of your home, but for hygienic reasons, as well. Evolution Cleaners is here to help you maintain a clean and most importantly healthy home.
