Nowadays, it’s become important to keep the house clean, not only to get rid of harmful viruses and bacteria, but also to help keep allergens at bay. If you’re bringing home a newborn, it’s essential to do a thorough, deep clean before their arrival, according to an expert.
“We want to make sure our area is as dust-free as possible, so [this includes] constant cleaning, punas ng sides, sweeping a lot,” suggests Ria Campos-Lopez, a child behavior specialist and certified baby sleep coach at Stratum Health Partners.
One area you need to focus on: Your little one’s sleeping space. We might not notice it, but dust and dirt also stick to our mattresses and pillows. If you find yourself scratching a lot or “bahing ng bahing” when lying on your bed, it’s possible that it’s accumulated dirt or worse — dust mites.
But trust moms to find a solution! On our parenting community, Smart Parenting Village, nanays shared a very useful and affordable find: The Deerma CM800 Anti-Dust Mites UV Vacuum.

The handheld, mattress UV vacuum cleaner uses advanced HEPA filtration to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns. The ultraviolet light also claims to be capable of eliminating dust mites, with a sterilization rate up to 99.99%. It also leaves surfaces dry and comfy thanks to a warm air outlet which removes dampness.
And it’s not just for your bed — use it for your little one’s crib, pillows, sheets, and sofas. You’ll be impressed with how much dust it can pick up!
One member who was convinced by her fellow moms to buy it even left a glowing review: “Ito na si Deerma. Na-amaze ako. Deep-seated dirt from beds and pillows.” Sulit!
