Dust Mites

ottawa mattress cleaningDust mites feed off of all kinds of organic detritus, mostly dead skin cells, that you leave in your mattress. They rely on the stable environment of your mattress and bedroom, keeping to dry, airy areas in order to propagate.

Dust mites have a combination of powerful digestive enzymes that cause symptoms like wheezing, asthma attacks, and general throat and lung irritation. These enzymes are contained in their fecal matter, which dust mites leave all throughout your mattress. When you move in your sleep, you disturb it and send it into the air, eventually to be inhaled.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs feed off blood. Like vampires, they’re nearly immortal, and can go over an entire year without eating. As soon as you fall asleep in your bed, they will be attracted to your body and begin to feed.

Depending on your susceptibility, they can also cause allergic reactions that can range from mild to severe. In the worst cases, the chemical compounds within a bedbugs saliva can also have significant psychological ramifications.

Bed-Bug Madness

In some of the worst cases, the psychological consequences of bedbug infestations can be quite severe. Known as ‘bed-bug madness’, bad bed-bug infestations can cause nightmares, severe anxiety, insomnia, hyper vigilance, and personal dysfunction in day-to-day life.


Lice love to spread. All it takes is an infected individual coming into contact with a mattress once for the mattress to become infected as well, spreading lice to any and everyone that gets too close to the mattress.
