  • Pillow-Fresh kills dust mites and removes them from the pillow. This is the primary reason people are allergic to feather/down.
  • Discarding the old cover eliminates the sloughed skin, and body secretions that build up over time.
  • UVC/Ozone kills bacteria, viruses and mold that live inside the pillow.
  • Down and to a lesser extent feathers and synthetic filling become compressed over time.
  • The agitation caused by the equipment allows the filling to regain its lost loft.
  • The cleaned pillow will be lump free and look and feel like new.
