Germ Busters enhance hygiene and improving health at home by a non- toxic treatment!

We always want our homes and work places to be clean and hygienic. However, as a microbiologist I realized that there are few areas in the house which are not only difficult to clean but also next to impossible to render germ free. We can sanitize the floor and table tops with disinfectants but mattresses and carpets could only be vacuumed which practically don’t render them germ free. Bacteria, mites, bed bugs and a myriad of parasites build their housing colonies in these carpets and gift us itching, allergies as well as infections.
These dangerous bacteria are harmful not only to adults but children in particular due to their low immunity. Steam sterilization or treatment is the best method to destroy bacteria as they are killed at temperatures above 121°C. As a mother cum microbiologist, I got my entire home treated by the radical germ free treatment procedures of Germ Busters. Their multilevel treatment ensured that dust; mites and bacteria were thoroughly removed from the common reservoirs and literally busted the germs out of my house.


Germ Busters Pvt. Ltd. is a company specializing in chemical-free cleaning and hygiene solutions. They have been servicing various organizations, including hospitals and homes. Their team is actively working on making inroads in the hospitality industry across the country. Set up in April this year, the Mumbai-based company, which focuses on sanitizing mattresses, sofas, carpets, curtains, duvets, pillows and soft toys, has already established its presence in Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata and Bengaluru. Germ Busters provides dynamic cleaning solutions not only to hotels and corporate offices but can also is very effective in ensuring that hygiene at home  is maintained and protected against infectious bacteria and allergens.


According to Prabodh Hamilton, Director - Business Development of Germ Busters “We adopted some of the best practices of the top anti-allergen mattress sanitizing companies in the US and UK, their procedures are known to get rid of allergens like dust mites and itch mites from mattresses and sofas with a super efficiency level of 99%. The treatment procedure followed by our team involves vacuuming which is dry extraction of the allergens, dust mites, itch mites and its feces from mattresses and sofas. The second step is Ultra Violet - Sterilization (UV-C). This kills 99.5% of E. coli, Staphylococcus sp. and Candida sp. It effectively eliminates more than 93.5% of dust mites, 99.5 % of H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) virus and Micro Allergy filtration gets rid of over 96.77% of remnants.  The third step is Steam Vapor (SV), which involves steaming the furnishing at 135° C, ensuring maximum hygiene and sterilization. The process further eliminates all traces of micro-organisms, mites and fungal spores. Steam Vapor penetrates into upholstery and carpets terminating any left-over allergens. Steam Vapor is safe for people because it does not involve chemicals (fungicides) and leaves no residue.”
We are surrounded by dust and it is a recurrent phenomenon so it is important to control & ensure that measures are taken to make our personal spaces allergy free.
The multilevel treatment ensures that harmful pathogenic bacteria, allergens and viruses are removed and thus the overall hygiene and in turn the health of the family members can be protected. We can now provide a safe, clean and healthy environment for our children and family members due to the non-toxic cleaning treatment offered by Germ Busters.

Like the old adage says Prevention is better than Cure!

In today's fast paced world we have to take cognizance of the fact that we should be sensitive to the environment and undertake processes which are eco – friendly. We at Germ Busters are conscious to the fact that we ought to set the bench mark for the future generations and to pass on important examples of how we clean and treat various mattresses, sofas & carpets.


Ours is a non-toxic approach to cleaning sofas, mattresses, carpets & pillows. We follow a simple 3 step process which involves deep extraction, UV treatment and steam vapour processing. Most of us are not aware of the various germs and viruses that surrounded every part of our work places and personal spaces. We give companionship to dust mites, itch mites, e coli, and various allergy causing bacteria. Our job is to prevent the germs from re –appearing and sleeping with you. Once we do a demo and acquire a sample we test it in a lab which is right here in Modern College and the Department of Biotechnology was immensely helpful in analyzing and processes the reports. The authenticity of these reports helped us to show to the big hotels how many allergy causing bacteria are part of their beds and carpets. We work in the hospitality space and understand that service is everything…if a guest gets their cuppa tea late in the room…it can lead to a bad mood and also escalated heart rate. In our modern world our tolerance levels are just not the same anymore as we all live in an age in which instant gratification is a benchmark. We are able to service and treat a hotel room in less than 30 minutes and at times some of my clients feel that we should speed up that process too.

Our motto is prevention is better than cure!

  • Germ Busters Pvt. Ltd. is a company specializing in chemical-free cleaning and hygiene solutions. They have been servicing various organizations, including hospitals and homes. Their team is actively working on making inroads in the hospitality industry across the country. Set up in April this year, the Mumbai-based company, which focuses on sanitizing mattresses, sofas, carpets, curtains, duvets, pillows and soft toys, has already established its presence in Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata. According to Prabodh Hamilton, Director - Business Development, Germ Busters, the new-age technology used by them will be a boon to the hospitality sector.

    "So far we have provided services to hotels like Fortune Select Dasve, and at Ecole Hotelier Lavasa. Our processes and services follow a unique USP, which makes the process brief and non-toxic. This ensures hotels to provide a germ free area for their guests. The treatment process takes about 20 minutes to sanitize a mattress. What distinguishes us from other service providers is that we use the dry extraction / sanitization method, whereas the others opt for wet cleaning. Wet cleaning takes much longer for drying the furnishings and in the long run is likely to do some damage to the health of the mattress, sofa and carpets due to the use of chemicals," stated Hamilton. He informed that they plan to launch their brand in every metro and key city in India and will establish presence in Goa, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Delhi very soon.

    Elaborating further about the USP of Germ Busters and the process, Hamilton said, "Our products are approved by FDA, The British Allergy Foundation, and Asthma & Allergy Resource Centre. Our methods are adapted from the best practices of the top mattress sanitizing companies in the US and UK. We have contracts with local doctors and service their clinics on a regular basis. Our procedures are known to get rid of allergens like dust mites and itch mites from mattresses and sofas with a super efficiency level of 99 per cent." The treatment procedure followed by Germ Busters involves three steps. The first is vacuuming which involves dry extraction of the allergens, dust mites, itch mites and its feces from mattresses and sofas that are up to ten inches in thickness. The second step is Ultra Violet - Sterilization (UV-C). "It kills 99.9 per cent of E. Coli, Staphylococcus and Candida. It effectively eliminates more than 93.5 per cent of dust mites, 99.9 per cent of H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) virus and Micro Allergy filtration gets rid of over 96.77 per cent of remnants," stated Hamilton. The third step is Steam Vapor (SV), which involves steaming the furnishing at 135° C, ensuring maximum hygiene and sterilization. "The process further eliminates all traces of micro-organisms, mites and fungal spores. Steam Vapor penetrates into upholstery and carpets terminating any left over allergens. Steam Vapor is safe for people because it does not involve chemicals (fungicides) and leaves no residue."

    Hamilton added, "The hospitality sector can look forward to some exciting sanitizing processes that will ensure that all their mattresses, sofas, carpets, pillows and soft toys are germs busted! Guests can now get a healthier option when they check into their favorite hotel."
