Bedding Sanitation Cleaning
Northern Beaches & Port Macquarie
The thing is by the time we get to bed most of us are usually too tired to consider what we might be lying in, especially if we’ve had a rough day. All we want to plop down on the bedding and sleep the exhaustion away.
Have you ever really thought about what might be in your bedding? And by that we don’t mean the stuffing or the cotton.
What You May Be Lying Down On
Do you think you are alone in bed? Not quite. Chances are likely these things might be tucked in tight with you.
Your Own Bodily Excretions – Our bodies secrete sweat and oil as a natural process. While it’s true that sweat does evaporate eventually, you can be sure at least some of it is absorbed into our beddings.
Dead Skin Cells – We all shed about 80,000 dead skins cells a day. Over the course of a year all cells you have shed will weigh more or less three pounds. This is not to say that all those dead skin cells are in your bedding, but you can probably imagine how much of it is, considering how much time you spend in bed and the movements you make in your sleep.
Dust Mites – These are the little creatures that feed off your dead skin cells. They are smaller than a grain of sand so they can’t be seen by the naked eye, which is a good thing since they look like something out of a nightmare.
About a half teaspoon of dust contains as many as 1,000 dust mites. Dust mite population increases rapidly because each egg-laying female can increase the population by 25 or 30 new mites per week.
You probably think the dust mites actually help by eating your dead skill cells, right? Think again. Where does their poop go?
Dust Mite Poop – That same half teaspoon that contained the 1,000 dust mites can also contain up to 250,000 fecal pellets. Dust mite poop actually contributes to how heavy your bedding weighs.
After reading all that do you think you can still get a good night’s sleep on your bedding?
The ideal is cleaning your beddings every week. Every fortnight is fine. Every third week is still manageable. Any more than that and you’re probably better off not imagining what you’re in bed with.
Say Good Night to Dirty Beddings (Say hello to bedding sanitation)
When it comes to your bedding, cleanliness should not be taken lightly. After all, it’s only where you spend up to eight hours each night, and sometimes even a little more than that when you feel like it. We are professionals when it comes to cleaning and we know what to do when it comes to sanitising beddings.
