Dust Mites

What's lurking in your mattress?

On average we shed 28g of skin cells per month – the equivalent of a bag of potato chips. As you sleep, many of these skin cells become entrenched in your mattress.

Dust mite feces are easily inhaled, triggering allergies.

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. Many people don't realize that they could be suffering from allergies triggered by dust mite feces.

Dyson microbiology lab

13 years ago Dyson built an in-house microbiology laboratory. Inside, Dyson scientists analyse household allergens. They have dust mite farms where they breed house dust mite cultures.

This enables Dyson microbiologists to study and fully understand dust mite behaviour and the allergens they produce.

Through their research, Dyson microbiologists have discovered a highly 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

Other mattress cleaners claim that their UV lights kill dust mites, but this isn't the case.To have any chance of killing dust mites, Dyson microbiologists found that UV lights would have to be held over a single spot for approximately 60 seconds. And even then, it would only work if the dust mites were stationary on the surface of the mattress - which they're not.

Vibration is ineffective

Some mattress cleaners claim that their vibrating pads shake and remove dust mites from mattresses, but this also isn't the case. Dust mites hook their legs around mattress fibres at least 10-20mm below the surface. Small vibrating pads in other cleaners are often too weak to dislodge them. Even if they are dislodged, the cleaner's suction would be too weak to remove them from the mattress.

Powerful suction

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 starving the mites themselves. By removing their food source - our dead skin cells - dust mite populations are quickly wiped out. The most effective way of removing their food source is with powerful suction.

Expels cleaner air than the air you breathe.

With whole machine HEPA filtration, the Dyson V6 Mattress vacuum captures and retains more dust using patented 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. 15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, generate powerful centrifugal forces to spin dust and dirt out of the airflow. The post motor filter captures over 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, including allergens and bacteria. 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 fibres.

The Dyson V6 Mattress cleaner head has a powerful motorized brush bar. It pivots to maintain constant suction across the mattress. Its stiff nylon bristles agitate mattress fibres, dislodging dust mite allergens and dirt.

The Dyson V6 Mattress cordless handheld vacuum cleaner has patented 2 Tier Radial™ cyclones. Powerful centrifugal forces spin dust and dirt out of the air and into the bin.

2 Tier Radial™ cyclones

Dyson cordless vacuums use patented cyclone technology, just like our 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.

The Dyson V6 Mattress cordless handheld vacuum cleaner has powerful suction generated by the Dyson digital motor V6. It generates powerful suction that penetrates deep into the mattress, removing allergens.

Powerful suction is generated by the Dyson digital motor V6

Digitally controlled, the motor spins at up to 110,000 rpm – up to three times faster than conventional motors. It generates powerful suction that penetrates deep into the mattress, removing allergens.
