Do you suffer from allergies? If so you know all too well the pain and discomfort they can cause.
A surprising fact to many people is that a large range of common allergies are caused by the household dust mite, an invisible microorganism that nests in dust and thrives in household environments like mattresses, carpets and cushions.
The only way to prevent allergic reactions to dust mites is to eliminate them completely, or at least reduce their population in the home as much as possible. The best way to do this is through the use of a steam cleaner.
Dust mites cannot survive high temperature and pressure of a quality steam cleaning machine. In fact, the effectiveness of our Polti range of steam cleaners against dust mites has been thoroughly tested in a multitude of scientific studies worldwide with the results all finding Polti’s steam cleaners to be approximately twice as effective as an ordinary vacuum cleaner in eliminating dust mites.
In fact, the British Allergy Foundation has awarded Polti steam cleaners with its prestigious ‘Seal of Approval’ for effectiveness in eliminating dust mites.
In one particular study conducted at Cambridge University two carpets and two mattresses containing live dust mites were tested. One set were cleaned with an ordinary vacuum cleaner, the other with a Polti steam cleaner. After cleaning the mattresses and carpets were tested for live dust mites.
Impressively, the Polti steam cleaner had eliminated 97% of dustmites from the carpet and 98% from the mattress, cutting allergens by 86%. The ordinary vacuum cleaner, however, had only managed to eliminate 57% of dust mites and 46% of allergens.
A quality steam cleaner will not only radically reduce the number of living dust mites but also neutralize the allergens they produce, providing a powerful tool for allergy sufferers worldwide.
