Why do I need a bed sanitizer?
Beds are the prime habitat for Dust Mites and where we spend a third of our lives with millions of these uninvited guests. Whilst in bed we shed our dead skin which makes its way into the fibres of our bedding and mattress. The Dust Mites feed on this dead skin, and, in turn it is their faeces that many people are allergic to. The warmth and moisture from our bodies help cultivate fungi and bacteria, which also live on the dead skin, leaving our beds a breeding ground for allergies.
Dust Mites and their faeces are proven to cause allergies, asthma and some skin reactions.
The UVEE is designed to improve the environment in our bedrooms and has 4 key functions that will kill bacteria, eradicate Dust Mites which are a catalyst for allergies, asthma and your general ill health and help you to sleep.

Cleaning your mattress with the UVEE
The age of your mattress determines how often you need to use your UVEE. The cleaning routine below is recommended to produce the best results.
- New mattress – use the UVEE once a month
- Used mattress – use the UVEE daily for the first week and then once a month.
If cleaning a double bed only attempt to clean one side at a time. Position the UVEE flat on the mattress, switch the UVEE on and move the unit following either pattern A or B to cover and clean the whole mattress. Keep the UVEE flat on the surface and ensure you move the UVEE smoothly and steadily as you would with a household vacuum
Cleaning and Maintenance of the UVEE
Regularly clean the HEPA filter, because the collection of dust mites into the filter may not always kill them, and they may continue to breed. In order to avoid secondary pollution, please clean the HEPA filter and re-use after drying, or replace a new HEPA filter.

- Remove the dust container
- Hold the dust container and pull out the filter assembly as indicated by the arrow
- Hold the filter following the illustration below, rotate the HEPA assembly in the unlocking direction, and then take the HEPA assembly outwards to clean the dust. The HEPA filter is suitable for hand washing in water, but must be completely dry before re-use. Install the filter assembly by aligning the symbols and rotate the filter to lock in place.
