So what is the most often overlooked piece of upholstery in your home when it comes to regular cleaning? The mattress. Dust mites are a common problem that plague mattresses. Dust mites are microscopic arachnids that live in mattresses, pillows, rugs and curtains and feed on people's flaked-off dead skin. They aren't harmful in themselves, but according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, some 18% to 30% of Americans are allergic to the mites' waste products. A government-led study found that nearly half of all U.S. homes have levels of allergen significant enough to trigger a sensitivity even in people who weren't previously allergic.
Chem-Dry Carpet Tech specializes in deep cleaning all types of upholstery including mattresses. With our high powered, deep cleaning system, we can not only remove most dust mites and their residue, but can also apply our patented Chem-Dry Anti Allergen.
Pets are not just responsible for annoying urine spots on mattresses, but they're also known to carry dust mites. Because of that it is always a good rule of thumb to groom your pets outside.
The price was significantly more than what we paid a very well known nationwide carpet cleaner for the same job last year, but this is one of those cases where you get what you pay for. We have a white sofa and ottoman that we clean every year before the holidays to keep them looking as new as possible. Chem-Dry Carpet Tech left the furniture looking much cleaner than the last company we used, even though it had taken a lot of abuse from our new dog since last year. I wish I had taken before and after photos, but the top of the ottoman was heavily soiled and now looks pretty much new. Chem-Dry Carpet Tech even removed spots that the previous company missed. We thought they were permanent stains, but apparently the other company was just lazy and/or incompetent. Chem-Dry Carpet Tech started with a harder task and did a better job.- Lauralee G. , Encino, CA
