What's Lurking In Your Mattress?
Two million dust mites and their allergenic feces
Dust mites thrive in warm, humid conditions, making our mattresses an ideal place for them to live and breed. They feed on the 28 grams of skin cells that we shed each month. Each mite can produce 20 allergenic droppings per day.
Dust Mite Feces Are Easily Inhaled, Triggering Allergies
Many people don't realize that they could be suffering from allergies triggered by dust mite feces. Moving around in bed disturbs the feces, which then stay airborne for at least 30 minutes. Measuring only 0.3 microns in size, they can easily be inhaled.
Dyson Microbiology Lab
Thirteen years ago Dyson built an in-house microbiology laboratory. Inside, Dyson scientists analyze household allergens and have dust mite farms where they breed house dust mite cultures.This enables Dyson microbiologists to study and fully understand dust mite behavior and the allergens they produce.
Through their research, Dyson microbiologists have discovered the most effective way to reduce dust mite allergens in mattresses. It's not the UV lights or vibrating pads used by other manufacturers — it's powerful suction.
UV Light is Ineffective
Dyson microbiologists found that to have any chance of killing dust mites, UV light would have to be held over a single spot for approximately 60 seconds. And even then, it would work only if the dust mites were stationary and on the surface of the mattress — which they're not.
Vibration is Ineffective
Dust mites hook their legs around mattress fibers at least 10–20mm below the surface. Small, vibrating pads in other mattress cleaners are either too weak to dislodge the dust mites, or the suction is too weak to remove them from the mattress.
Powerful Suction is the Most Effective Way to Reduce House Dust Allergens in the Mattress
Dyson research has shown that the best way to remove allergenic dust mite droppings from mattresses is by using powerful suction. This also removes their food source — our dead skin cells — and reduces dust mite populations.
Expels Air Cleaner Than the Air You Breathe
With whole-machine HEPA filtration, the Dyson V6 Mattress vacuum captures over 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, including allergens and bacteria. Fifteen cyclones, arranged across two tiers, generate powerful centrifugal forces to spin dust and dirt out of the airflow. And because the entire system is engineered to be sealed, the air that leaves the machine is cleaner than the air you breathe.
The Motorized Brush Bar Dislodges Allergens from Mattress Fibers
The Dyson V6 Mattress cleaner head has a powerful motorized brush bar. It pivots to maintain constant contact across the mattress. Its stiff nylon bristles agitate mattress fibers, dislodging dust mite allergens and dirt.
2-Tier Radial Cyclones
Dyson cordless vacuums use patented cyclone technology, just like their corded machines. Powerful centrifugal forces spin dust and dirt out of the air and into the bin. This patented cyclone technology combines with the Dyson digital motor V6 to ensure that Dyson cordless machines provide powerful suction, from the moment you start cleaning to the moment you finish.
Digitally controlled, the motor spins at up to 110,000 rpm — three times faster than conventional motors. It generates powerful suction that penetrates deep into the mattress, removing the most house dust allergens from mattresses and futons.
