Clean Sleep Innovative Technology
The process utilizes our patent-pending Clean Sleep Machine, which is a unique, one-of-a-kind process, engineered and developed specifically for the purpose of sterilizing and sanitizing mattresses. There are 5 important steps to our mattress cleaning system, each targeting different issues, but all working together to provide the most effective method to ensure a cleaner mattress in your home.
Our 5-Step Patent-Pending Clean Sleep Technology Includes:
Ultraviolet (UV) Light
UV-C light is short-wavelength (200-280 nanometer) ultraviolet radiation that is harmful to microorganisms. This light is effective in breaking apart germ building blocks or nucleotide pairs that make up deoxyribonucleic acid known as DNA. Damaged DNA halts cell function and reproduction and as a result, the organism dies. UV-C frequency light that causes this germicidal effect rarely reaches the surface of the Earth because our atmosphere filters out the harmful wavelength range. UV-C is incorporated in the Clean Sleep process due to the fact that warmth and moisture on a mattress creates an ideal micro-habitat allowing bacteria and virus cells to grow and multiply. Many studies have produced conclusive evidence that UV-C light provides an effective non-chemical germicidal effect and the application of ultraviolet C light has been studied and proven as a germicidal agent for over 100 years. The process has been effectively utilized to disinfect not only surfaces, but also air and water as early as 1937.
The Clean Sleep Process utilizes a UVC radiant exposure intensity clinically proven to be highly effective for eliminating contaminants. To achieve microbial inactivation for the most virulent of contaminants, the UV radiant exposure delivered by the Clean Sleep machine is at a minimum, 2.2 J/cm2. Critical factors include the transmissivity of the mattress, pillow or cushion, along with the cover fabric properties and weave. The power, wavelength and physical arrangement of the UV source(s), the product movement profile, and the radiation path length remain consistent due to the design of the machine.
Dry Vapor Steam
The Clean Sleep process injects multiple jets of very low-moisture steam that provide sufficient heat to effectively reduce the viability of a wide spectrum of micro-organisms.
When steam is injected through a surface, the very small vapor molecules penetrate pores in the surface. By focusing the heat energy of the steam efficiently to the surfaces, grease, dirt, sweat, and other forms of soils and contaminants are broken down for easier extraction.
The added benefit is that the high temperature of vapor molecules has been proven to kill bacteria, viruses and other living contaminants like mold, fleas, flea eggs, and dust mites. Bio film formation begins when trace amounts of micro-organisms attach to a surface. If not cleaned properly this builds up forming a layer of bacteria on the surface.
The result of the Clean Sleep process is a surface that is sanitized, deodorized, and hypoallergenic. A thorough job of cleaning also means you won’t have to work as hard the next time around!
Airborne particles are some of the most prolific allergy triggers in the home. Disgusting as it may be, the waste matter of dust mites is second only to pollen in causing allergic reactions and are deposited in large quantities in your mattress. That is why your mattress becomes significantly heavier over its lifetime. Some allergic reactions translate into asthma (which is on the rise among children), but some studies show that avoiding allergens in early childhood can prevent the onset of asthma. Our steam cleaning process is a great way to keep everyone in your home healthier by eliminating these allergens from your mattress and pillows.
A high-quality, powerful household vacuum cleaner has a laboratory-measured ASTM F588-13 Standard rating of 200 airwatts. The Clean Sleep machine develops a peak rating of over 2150 airwatts. That is greater than 10 times the suction power of some of the best household vacuums available. Our high-powered vacuum units extract the foreign particles that inevitably build up in your mattress over time. Removal of these contaminants significantly reduces contaminants that can lead to negative health implications for many allergy sufferers.
Oxygen in its natural form occurs as two double-bonded molecules (O2). Ozone is a form of oxygen with 3 molecules (2 double-bonded and one single-bonded) and symbolized as O3. It is formed naturally when an electrical discharge occurs that breaks the bond and provides a free single oxygen molecule to bond with a double-bonded Oxygen molecule. This process is most evident by the clean, fresh smell of the air immediately after a lightning storm, where the electrical discharge of the lightning ionizes the surrounding air, forming Ozone. The third oxygen molecule single bond is relatively weak and is readily donated to other molecules both organic and inorganic, resulting in oxidation of the molecules.
One benefit of the oxidation process is that harmful, odor causing molecules are transformed into molecules that can be safer and it reduces or eliminates offensive odors.
A second benefit is that Ozone has antibacterial properties when used in conjunction with the steam injection (to provide >90% relative humidity). Studies show that ozone can provide a valuable decontamination tool for the removal of bacteria.
When the Clean Sleep Process is complete, your mattress will be dry and immediately ready for use. The microprocessor-controlled infrared heating chamber raises the temperature of the mattress to 150° F to remove residual moisture.
It is important to remove as much moisture as possible to inhibit the growth of molds and other fungi. The standard process heats constantly during the entire cycle and the heating cycle can be extended if additional drying is required.
Clean Sleep Technology provides a comprehensive weapon that targets many common mattress cleanliness issues and is recommended for routine maintenance of your mattress. The mobility the Clean Sleep process allows it to be easily utilized by both residential and commercial customers.
Automation of the process allows for consistency of application for each customer. Automation also safeguards against many of the variables that occur with manually applied methods of cleaning mattresses and other similar surfaces.
