Download the guide to sleeping well
Did you know that we spend about a third of our life in our bed? Yet we rarely, if ever, consider our mattress.

To ensure pleasant sleep, the bed must not only be of good quality but it must also be clean. Quality of sleep depends directly on the comfort and hygiene of the mattress.

In general, the mattress is the ideal environment for bacteria, mites and viruses. Even thick bed linen can not protect us against these micro-particles. 90% of mattresses are infected with hundreds of thousands of mites and bacteria.
