Here at MCAAS Solutions we strongly believe in cleaning everyone’s mattress and Upholstery.
Why do we need to clean the mattress?
Let us break down for you what happens in your mattress every single day:
An average person sheds about 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells every hour! Just imagine if you spend 5 hours every night sleeping on your mattress; you have a whopping 5 million skin cells in your mattress!
These skin flakes then start to decompose and become food that is able to feed a few million dust mites.
The average relative humidity in Singapore is 70-80% and this allows the dust mite to reproduce at an alarming rate. An average dust mite lays 3 eggs a day.
It gets worse….
A single dust mite produces about 20 waste droppings a day!
Each waste item contains a protein called Der F1 and Der P1. The enzymes in these proteins are used to break down human skin flakes that the dust mites feed on. These protein molecules can create powerful allergic reactions in your loved ones.
IF,there are 5 million skin cells, there will be a few million dust mites, which produce dust mite droppings (these are the particles you see flying around all over your room, under the sunlight, when you tap your bed).
People in the past used to take their thin mattresses outside and hit them thoroughly. As these mattresses grew thicker, people abandoned this practice altogether.
Due to transport costs and the high cost of mattress cleaning, people clean their mattresses 3 months once, 6 months once, 1 year once or not at all!
Due to this fact, people develop skin and respiratory allergies and illnesses and have constant interrupted sleep every night. People are then not able to get much deep sleep and REM sleep and this also affects the performance capability of children in Singapore schools.
All these can be solved by getting the beds cleaned monthly!
To solve your respiratory problems, skin allergies and to have sufficient REM and deep sleep daily, it is essential to clean your mattress every month.
*The things found in the mattress cause allergies, which directly or indirectly affect your sleep. This in turn, affects your performance in work, school, and daily life and increases your health risks.
The only solution to this is monthly mattress cleaning!
The dust mite is named after its habitat - the dust .
The main component of dust is shed skin flakes, which is the primary source of food for dust mites.
Areas around home that are heavily used, such as beds and upholstered furniture, will have a much higher mite population that the rest of the house.
The mite has been associated with dermatological and respiratory allergies in humans, such as eczema and asthma etc.
Symptoms of allergic reactions to dust mites include:
- - Wheezing
- - Coughing
- - Breathlessness
- - Tight feeling in the chest
- - Runny nose
- - Itchy nose
- - Itchy eyes
- - Itchy skin
- - Rashes on skin
