Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What types of mattress are found with highest level of existence of Dust-mites?
The older the mattresses, the higher level of existence of dust-mite are found, and particular types of mattresses found with high level of existence of dust-mites are Kapok-filled mattresses, coconut-fiber filled mattresses, synthetic-fiber filled mattresses, and rubber mattresses in decending order.
Would exposure to direct sunlight eradicate dust-mite?
Exposure to direct sunlight can eradicate about 10% of dust-mites because temperature of sunlight is about 40-50 degree Celsius. When a mattress is placed to expose to sunlight, all dust-mites would migrate themselves to lower level, whereas PUMI Anti Dust-mites spray attacks dust-mites directly and with the fumigation effect will effectively eradicate them. Therefore, it is advisable to cover the mattress with bed-spread after spray application and to keep doors and windows closed for more effective result. The recommended procedure is to apply PUMI Anti Dust-mite spray in the morning and leave doors and windows closed for 1-2 hours or until evening before bed time, only then open doors and windows for air ventilation.
Would the remains of inactive dust-mites left on the mattress still cause allergy?
After the dust-mites have been killed, their harmful affect or
their protein would gradually be subsiding, but slowly.
However, if a speedy result is desired, vacuum cleaning is
recommended. But vacuum cleaning alone without the prior
application of PUMI Anti Dust-mites spray would be
ineffective since dust-mites themselves can resist being
sucked away by vacuum cleaning.
Would the use of Air Purifier be effective against dust-mites?
Air purifier is more suited to handle cigarette smoke which are air-borne and can be easily detected by the air purifier, but dust-mites are heavier than smoke.
When we turn our body on the mattress, allergen get pumped up into the air, but only for 5 minutes duration before they again settle themselves on
the mattress or sofa, therefore, the air purifier cannot
eradicate them effectively. More importantly, the dust-mites themselves were not killed, and therefore, continued to produce fecal discharges.
Would covering the mattress with a densely woven fabric, plastic sheet or vinyl and nylon sheets or fabric pre-coated with protective substance be effective?
It is probably effective for a short period at the beginning but severely reduced ventilation would be counter beneficial to desire for a naturally well-rested sleep because of discomfort caused by accumulation of body heat. Moreover, after a number of laundry, the densely-woven fabric would be altered structurally opening up gaps between yarns and allow allergen to escape into the air.
Does PUMI spray use chemical substance in its formulation, if it does, is it harmful to human? If it is effective in killing dust-mites, is it also effective in killing harmful bacterial too?
PUMI Spray do not use any chemical at all in its formulation, instead it uses
oil which naturally evaporates fumigant, will effectively kills dust-mites and yet it is capable of killing fungus and harmful bacteria as well. The addition of alcohol in PUMI Anti Dust-mites spray formulation promotes sanitization and clean air which enhance relaxation and well-rested sleep, with “The Garden” giving out the
aroma of Lavender or with “Deep Forest” with the aroma of its eucalyptus providing relieve to breathing congestion, combat against cold.
Would the use of “PUMI Spray” be recommended if a new born baby is present?
Strongly recommended, since new born baby has much lower immunization level than adults and if the baby is left exposed to fecal discharge of dust-mites over a period of time, the child could develop asthma condition.
Would a brand new mattress benefit from use of “PUMI Spray”?
The problem with allergy is that it may be disguised as mere skin irritation or frequently recurring cold or feeling unwell due to minor immunization deficiency.
