Austin, Texas is proud to be many things.
In fact, it’s a one-of-a-kind oasis in the middle of the second largest state in the country. The call to stand out and be proud of who she is has led Austin to claim the title as one of the greenest cities in America, setting it apart from the rest of Texas - a state widely believed to be very...um...non-green.
Confession time. I’m not originally from Austin. But this amazing city has adopted me, allowing me to join the ranks of some of the friendliest, most opinionated and (yes, I am going to say it) weirdest people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
So many organizations in the area, such as the Austin Eco-Network, are doing great things to make our world a better place and I have been inspired to be a part of that. When I decided to start my business I was looking for something that held my values. Of course I wanted to make money, but my passion for sustainability and leaving the earth a better place after I am gone is what brought me to Clean Sleep.
Clean Sleep Austin is a franchise, yes, but it’s also ‘me’ and offers an an amazing way for me to live me out my values. Here are a few things that I want you to know:
My company is passionate about helping the environment.
Landfills are becoming a bigger and bigger problem all around the country and mattresses play a big part of that. Because of their make-up, a mattress is bulky, very durable and can take up to 50 years in a landfill to decompose! It might seem like a small thing: cleaning mattresses = longer lifespan = less landfill waste. But think about what a difference we could make if everyone was maintaining their mattress rather than just tossing it out at the first sign of trouble? Since there are an estimated 30-50 million mattresses that get dumped into landfills every year across the country, I say that we could be playing a very big part!
My company is passionate about you.
See, our mattresses are just something that we never really think about, but they can cause problems that most people never even give a second thought to.
- Allergies: Austin is ranked #45 in the top 100 WORST cities for allergy sufferers. Although we can not do anything about the pollen count we can take care of a hidden allergy source in your own house, your mattress. Even a mattress that is a year or two old can contain thousands of dust mites that can cause allergy and asthma attacks.
- Safety: I have two words to sum up why we put your safety first: Chemical Free. Our process is 100% natural. Not only are we able to sanitize and clean your mattress without chemicals we leave it dry and ready to sleep on immediately. This is important because most standard methods of mattress cleaning, even natural method with vinegar and baking soda, cause moisture to get deep inside of a mattress which causes mold to grow and thrive.
- Your Money! Mattresses aren’t cheap and in a short amount of time they can become stained, smelly, and filled with dust mites and other particles just from normal everyday use. Not only does our process save one more mattress from having to go to a landfill, we also save you the money of having to buy a brand new one every time there is an accident. Having your mattress cleaned by Clean Sleep for maintenance even once a year can increase the lifespan of your mattress for years! If your mattress has structural damage and can not be sustained even by a cleaning, we recommend you give a call to a mattress recycling company in the area. We recommend A Bedder World.
Mattress cleaning isn’t sexy work, but I believe it’s important work that gives you and all of your neighbors a better night’s sleep and a greener community. Not to mention it comes with a really awesome truck!
