Doctor's Report

JUNE 2007

Dr. Glen Needham, Ph.D.:
Dr. Needham is a leading expert on dust mites (Dermatophagoides farinae). He is a professor of Entomology and Acarology (the study of dust mites) at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. His team at The Ohio State University has conducted multiple tests over the last 18 months using the UV-C Germicidal lights on dust mites, fleas and lice. Dr. Needham and his team's study concluded that: "Even small doses of UV-C seem to have a fairly significant effect on American house dust mite reproduction. We have found that as little as one second of UV-C results in the death of the American house dust mite eggs. UV-C has the potential to break the life cycle of the American house dust mite by killing the embryonic stage thus stopping the production of allergenic proteins in feces and exuviae (cast skins)." After his studies on fleas and lice, Dr. Needham concluded, "The UV-C emitted in the proper doses eliminates or inhibits the development of lice and fleas and the nuisances that accompany them."  HYGIENITECH IS THE ANSWER.

Dr. Charles P. Gerba, Ph.D.:
Dr. Gerba is a leading expert on immunology and environmental microbiology, including particularly bacteria and viruses. He is a professor of Environmental Microbiology, Departments of Microbiology and Immunology and Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences at the University of Arizona. He has authored more than 400 works, including several text books, and is affectionately known within the industry as "Dr. Germ." His team at the University of Arizona conducted multiple tests using UC-C lights on bacteria and viruses. Dr. Gerba's team concluded: "This data reveals a greater than 99.99% reduction in dust mites at the one second time point. Results in Test 2 again show a 99.99% reduction dust mites after one second of exposure. CALL HYGIENITECH TODAY.

Recent studies have determined that an alarming number of harmful germs exist in your sleeping environment, including Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These two contaminants in particular were found in 50% of mattresses and are major triggers of sickness and diarhoea.

These statistics were based on 154 mattresses that were tested in hospitals and other institutional type multi-bed facilities. Leading experts have concluded that you would have a much higher reading in hotel and resort mattresses, as well as mattresses found in private homes due to the less sanitary nature of the surrounding environment.

The good news is that the Hygienitech™ process is a totally "green," no-chemical, no-moisture process that is capable of destroying all impurities found in a mattress. This is only possible by sanitizing both the surface and the inside of the mattress by combining a UV-C Germicidal lamp with a powerful extraction device.

Indoor air quality also plays a big part in people's overall well-being and health. Pollen, animal-related allergens, dust mites and mite excrement are also a danger to asthma and hay fever sufferers, causing great discomfort. The fine dust that we breathe in while sleeping in our beds each night can disrupt an intended peaceful night's rest, trigger allergic reactions or result in symptoms such as itchy eyes, a running nose, sneezing, scratchy or irritated throat, headaches, fatigue, depression and so on. Many people mistake these symptoms for unavoidable allergic reactions, without realizing that the cause is likely the cleanliness of the environment in which they are sleeping.

We don't like to think that the environment we are sleeping in is dirty, however,  the mattress serves as a ready and willing depository for organic and inorganic impurities.

In your lifetime your body will have more close contact with your bed than with any other piece of furniture and the simple truth is we all release as much as a pint of sweat each night and our bodies are permanently shedding skin. Adding these to the bacteria that is formed from the other fluids our bodies release and deposit onto the mattress. It makes you wonder why this problem has never been studied and remedied until now.

You now have the choice to sleep in a healthy and sanitized environment in the comfort of your own home and there should be no excuse for you to be sleeping in an accommodation provider's mattress that has not been sanitized by a certified Hygienitech Anti-Allergen Services Provider.
