We've found an excellent article from the ABC about the dangers of mould & dust mites in our mattresses and pillows and how often you should be replacing them to avoid it! It gives some really great insight on the topic from some excellent industry professionals.

How often should you change your mattress and pillows to avoid mould and dust mites?

As we know, a top-quality Dehumidifier can be just a fantastic solution to really dry out that mattress and pillows. This helps stop those mould & dust mite nasties in their tracks and even extends the life of your mattress and pillows. We put together a handy Bedroom Mattress Dehumidifier Drying Guide for this a little while back that gives some excellent tips! You can check it out here:

In addition to a dehumidifier, a top-quality air purifier will also do an excellent job of actively ridding the air in your bedroom of these airborne nasties (i.e. mould spores, dust mites and dust mite faeces). Find out all about it on the website:

We also did a great little Healthy Home Moment video here with Nicole Bijlsma with some excellent tips about reducing those bedroom allergens:
