[Where Do Mites Live?]

According to the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, Koreans sleep average 7 hours and 49 minutes a day. It is about an hour less than French and Americans. All in all, humans spend 1/3 of a day in a bed. While many people want to have good beddings, not many seem to care hygiene side because it is bothersome to wash and dry. However, mites parasitizing on the beddings can cause skin troubles and rhinitis. The dead skins dropped from our skin are the best source of nutrition. Mites are 0.1 to 0.35 mm in size which is hard to see with naked eye. They live off dead skins, dandruffs and plant fiber in ideally around 25℃. A paper from a regional nursery journal in 2000 showed a shocking result: researchers investigated 178 households and found approximately 900 mites in sofas and 1,000 mites in beddings. Surprise!


[Armor Mattress]

Armor Mattress is a bedding washing, drying and sterilizing service introduced by Wholetem. The service works this way: call for service – staff drives at your door – collect out the beddings – procedure washing, driving and sterilizing on site in a specially designed and equipped trailer within an hour. The 66℃ heat wind works in 15 minutes to kill all mites. According to university research papers, keeping temperature more than 65℃ at 20% moisture for 15 minutes kills all mites. The same applies to sterilizing imported timbers. Alongside this, 120 UV-C lamps work for 15 minutes to completely remove germs and viruses. Wholetem joined hands with JeonBuk National University to carry out a test and found that 10 minute application of UV-C killed 99.8% coli, 15 minutes killed 99.9% coli, 3 minutes killed 98.2% COVID-19 and 5 minutes killed 99% COVID-19. Mites are known to cause skin troubles and asthma. Sukjoong Hong, CEO of Wholetem, recommends you to do Armor Mattress service once every three months to stay mite-free because mites lay eggs once every three months. 


[Joining the Boat]

Mattress cleaning services are rising fast with good prospects in South Korea. Taking the momentum, CEO Hong is busy looking for business partners. You can start right away on purchasing a patented ‘armor trailer’ designed and developed by Wholetem. The truck and the trailer are separable and the process works itself. It can cover as big as 1200 mm mattresses and does the work for two at once. Customers who use Armor Mattress service can pile up happy points. <PowerKorea>
