The pandemic has brought to fore the importance of keeping our immunity strong. Key factors affecting our immunity are health and hygiene. So while we try to keep our surrounding clean, there are two places in our homes where we spend a third of our day but yet we don’t clean it as often. They are none other than our mattresses and sofas.
Our sofa is a key focal area in the home where the family sit and gather to catch-up, read and watch TV. Sometimes, straight from coming in from outdoors. In our humid climate, sofas and mattresses trap moisture and are good breeding grounds for dust-mites. We had admittedly taken for granted that they won’t be dirty (or not THAT dirty) to actually warrant a good deep clean. We couldn’t be more wrong. Especially with construction works being carried out right next to our block.

4 Inches with a Blue Light
The team arrived on time and went immediately to work. They asked about the age and the condition of our mattresses and sofa. The staff whipped out their sanitizing device which is like a huge hand-held vacuum cleaner except it has the capacity to suck 4 inches deep into the mattress and keeps all the dust trapped in a Hepa-certified vacuum bag. The device emits a blue ultra violet light that kills all dust mites as it vacuums. Super.
The team helped to remove the mattress protectors and pillow covers. They did a a 20 second deep vacuuming of the mattress before showing us how much dust, dead-skin and possibly dust mites (not visible to the human eyes) that were sucked up.
The deep-cleaning and sanitizing process of our King-sized mattress and pillows took 40 minutes. After that, the team sanitized the children’s mattresses and pillows. We are glad that the hand-held sanitizing device is compact, space saving (not bulky at all!) and doesn’t require any water.
While a staff was busy with the bedrooms, another staff was getting ready to sanitize the living room sofa. De Hygienique sanitizes sofas using a European cleaning technology and pH7 low moisture shampoo formula. The shampoo leaves the sofa surface with a thick layer of foam that penetrates into the sofa’s surface to clean stains and remove odour. Then, using a water-based vacuum device, the foam is vacuumed up together with any sediments of dirt. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ sight of the clean clear water (before) versus the dark and dirty ‘after’ water. This was unsettling as our brand new sofa is barely 12 months old.
The team cleaned every inch of the sofa thoroughly, leaving nothing unturned, literally.
After about 45 minute, the sofa sanitizing is done. As the foam is a water-based one, we were told to ‘air’ the sofa for at least 3 hours before sitting on it. Since we had planned to go out for dinner, it did not inconvenience us at all.
We are very glad we found De Hygienique. The staff were prompt, experienced and took their tasks very seriously. The equipment they used were high-tech and effective. Their method transparent – showing us evidences of their hard work as we went along. We are very pleased with their service and level of professionalism and couldn’t recommend them enough.
