  • I have a dust mite cover on my mattress. Do I still need your hygiene and dust mite treatment procedure?
    Yes. Your mattress should be clean and healthy before placing your dust mite cover. If this is not the case, dust mites will reproduce even faster inside your mattress, you are simply masking this serious problem. When you take your cover off to wash it, there will be so much dust and droppings released that you risk having a serious allergic reaction. In addition, an anti-mite cover prevents proper ventilation of your mattress, which can create a feeling of discomfort while you sleep.

  • Can I treat my mattress with an anti dust mite spray?
    No. This is not a solution.

This dirt will therefore always be present inside your mattress. In addition, you will breathe in chemicals that can be harmful to your health.
