The SANOVAC CONCEPT safely Eliminates Dust Mites, Bacteria, Viruses, Pollen, Mold, Mildew and Fungal Spores and numerous other Harmful Contaminants found in Mattresses and Upholstered items as well as on hard, nonporous surfaces found in homes, hotels and all types of multi-bed facilities.

Process

The scientifically proven Sanovac® Mattress Cleaning and Sanitizing process is an all-natural, chemical-free, dry treatment procedure that thurley removes and destroys dust mites, bacteria, common viruses, mold, mildew and fungal spores and other contaminants found in all mattresses.

It is a non-invasive and totally safe way to disinfect your or any mattress or upholstered item regardless of its age, size or style. The process we have developed is merely an extension of the same UV-C germicidal sanitizing methods that the medical profession has been using for many years.

For the past years, we have always directed our efforts educating people and coordinating with various healthcare organizations, and it will not be very long before the entire world recognizes that a clean mattress can make a tremendous difference in the way we feel. When it comes to most common allergies, it’s very likely that a dust mite infested mattress is the cause.

How Do Dust Mite Allergens Affect Health?

Mites are one of the major indoor offsets for people with allergies and asthma. Dust mite exposure can even cause asthma.

Chronic, ongoing exposure to dust mites at home can gravely impact the health of people with asthma and those who are allergic or particularly sensitive to mites.  These allergens cause an immune system response, known as allergic rhinitis. A dust mite allergy can range from mild to severe. A mild case may cause an occasional runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. In severe cases, the condition is ongoing, or chronic, resulting in persistent sneezing, cough, congestion, facial pressure or severe asthma attack.   People with asthma who are sensitive to mites face an increased risk of flare-ups or an asthma attack.

What Are Dust Mites?

Dust mites are microscopic, insect-like pests that generate some of the most common indoor substances – or allergens – that can trigger allergic reactions and asthma in many people. Millions of dust mites can live in the bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets or curtains in homes, hotels and all types of multi-bed facilities. They feed on the dead human skin cells found in dust.

Dust mites are not parasites; they don’t bite, sting or burrow into our bodies. The harmful allergen they create comes from their fecal pellets and body fragments.  Dust mites are almost everywhere; roughly 8 out of 10 homes in the United States have detectable levels of dust mite allergen in at least one bed.

Where Do Dust Mites Come From?

Dust mites occur naturally and can appear in nearly all homes and multi-bed facilities.  Humidity is a factor in determining whether the local environment has a low or high concentrations of dust mites.  Dust mites do not drink water like we do; they absorb moisture from the air and from a warm body.

HEALTH RISKS

A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP IS A HEALTHY NIGHT’S SLEEP

Recent studies have determined that a shocking number of harmful germs exist in sleeping environments, including Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These two contaminants in particular were found in more than 50% of mattresses tested and are major triggers of sickness and allergies. These statistics were based on 151 mattresses that were tested in hospitals and other institutional type multi-bed facilities. Key experts have concluded that you would have a much greater reading in hotel and resort mattresses, as well as mattresses found in private homes due to the less sanitary nature of the surrounding environment.

The reason for the testing was to determine how constructive the decontamination of the bed was once the occupant had been moved, using a commercial grade of disinfectant spray.

The study results suggest that the usual disinfection procedures, instead of diminishing the number of microbes, marginally displace them from one part of the mattress to another. The number of microorganisms remains the same. This is where we come in.

The good news is that the Sanonvac™ 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.

10 DUST MITE AND MATTRESS FACTS:

  1. A dust mite produces 200 times it body weight in excrement.
  2. The primary cause of allergies are dust mite excrement.
  3. The little dust mite has a life span of 70 to 180 days
  4. A  dust mite can lay around 300 eggs.
  5. Surprisingly the dust mite has no natural enemy
  6. A gram of dust typically contains 2500 dust mites
  7. The human body sheds +- 2kgs of skin a year
  8. A person will spend 1/3 of their living day sleeping on a mattress
  9. The dust mite is invisible to the naked eye.
  10. A mattress will weigh double its original weight around 5 to 7 years old

Danger of Dust Mites

Pollen, animal-related allergens, dust mites and mite excrement are also a danger to asthma and hay fever sufferers, causing great discomfort. The fine dust that we breathe in while sleeping in our beds each night can disrupt an intended peaceful night’s rest, trigger allergic reactions or result in symptoms such as itchy eyes, a running nose, sneezing, scratchy or irritated throat, headaches, fatigue, depression and so on. Many people mistake these symptoms for unavoidable allergic reactions, without realizing that the cause is likely the cleanliness of the environment in which they are sleeping.
