My Healthy Home

Good Morning you all! Past few days I am on a quest of making my home healthy not only for my toddler but for all of us. We spend most of our time at home so it becomes necessary to keep Indoor Environment of our home healthy!

First the routine cleaning of AC filters to make sure we are not breathing air travelled through lot of dust or bacteria. The clean AC filters are most important factors in Indoor Air Quality of our home. So we get them clean at least twice a year.

Next came the issue of dust, dust-mites and bugs at home. In UAE though we are living in nice landscaped communities, this is a desert; so the problem of fine dust is unavoidable. Though we do dusting, vacuuming, moping everyday at home, this is not enough to keep our home dust free. The mattress, rugs, upholsters at our home becomes pool of dust, dust mites, bed bugs, bacteria, mold and fungi. These impurities can cause symptoms and diseases such as hay fever, coughing, red eyes, allergies and many more including even asthma.
The regular domestic vacuum cleaner is insufficient to thoroughly clean those mattresses, sofas and rugs. Frequent changing of sheets and covers is not enough to overcome this problem I can tell you from my experience. If you smell your mattress, which you used for few years, it doesn't smell fresh. You can almost smell the dust!

But since yesterday our mattress is smelling fresh and I got the peace of mind while sleeping that I am not sleeping on a mattress full of dust :). Thank you The Healthy Home guys!

They came with a kind of industrial vacuum machine which has 11 times the suction power of your regular off-the-shelf product. It also confines 99.97% of the extracted dust mites and other dirt particles through special Hypo Allergen High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, preventing them from spreading again in the room. They showed us the amount of dust they collected in just one patch on mattress and our eyes widen in shock!

After the removal of the waste particles containing dead skin, dust mites , hair, food and other dried bodily fluids from mattress and pillows, they applied their exclusive medical grade sanitizing device that uses powerful Ultra Violet light to destroy DNA, eliminating any remaining dust mites, bacteria, mould and other pathogens, leaving the mattress sanitized. They told me 10 second exposure to this machine is equivalent to 48 hours of direct sunlight!
This two steps mattress sanitising process was surprisingly very quick, just 15-20 minutes. But made sense looking at those powerful machines they used. The treatment was completely dry and chemical free. And good news is you don't have to do any preparation for it apart from clearing your mattress (if you tend to throw clothes and towels on it ;)). And nothing is required to do afterwards as well. I would recommend their service from my experience. This kind of service was not previously available here, so I appreciate Mr. Jaber for initiating this kind of service in UAE, which is necessary for keeping our homes healthy!
