Do you know what’s really lurking in your bed? Studies have shown that a typical used mattress may have anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million mites inside. These mites thrive in warm, humid conditions, making our beds an ideal environment for them to live and breed.  Each live mite produces at least 20 droppings per day, and they feed on the skin cells left on our pillows, blankets and mattresses… Eww!

And if that’s not bad enough, they also cause allergies!

Now, before you run off to go throw all your bedding in the washing machine, just think for a moment; when was the last time you thoroughly cleaned your MATTRESS?

Yes, your mattress. We may wash our sheets, blankets, and pillowcases regularly, but most of us won’t even spare a thought on cleaning the actual mattress itself. And dust mites are just as happy lurking between mattress fibres as they are in the rest of our bedding…

That is where the Dyson DC43H MATTRESS handheld vacuum comes in handy. This vacuum cleaner was specifically designed for cleaning mattresses, and the powerful suction significantly reduces allergens, ensuring an even greater night’s sleep.


You’re probably now thinking; “why would I buy a vacuum that only cleans mattresses?”

Well if you are (or even if you aren’t), the great news is that the DC43HMATTRESS is also powerful and large enough to clean small areas in your home such as the office, or staircase. And thanks to its lightweight design, you can effortlessly move around from room to room.


Just like all Dyson products, the DC43HMATTRESS is built to last, and beautifully designed. And to help put your mind at ease, it also carries a 2-year warranty.


Rid your home of nasty dust mites, annoying allergens, and provide a thorough clean time and time again, with Dyson’s elegant DC43HMATTRESS handheld vacuum cleaner.

  1. handheld vacuum cleaner is a wonderful thing, I bought a dyson firm, but I feel it emanating noise is too loud, so I tried replaced by HOOVER and I felt it was better. and it also works longer than dyson.
