Dust Mite Control

We spend approximately one third of our lives sleeping. If you’re wondering what this fact has to do with dust mite control, here’s the thing; as we sleep, we shed dead skin cells, which dust mites feed on. In short, dust mites can only live in an environment (i.e.: your bed) that has an abundant source of food. Besides being a microscopic unwanted bedfellow, dust mite droppings contain an allergen which can aggravate respiratory ailments including asthma.


Proper dust mite control is crucial for family homes, as well as facilities such as hotels, old age homes and hospitals.  Effective dust mite control requires regular, professional deep-cleaning of your mattress. We’ll provide you with effective mattress cleaning using a UV-C light that kills dust mites, as well as viruses and bacteria.
