Why Mattress Cleaning is so Important

Thursday, March 1, 2018

You may be the cleanest and tidiest person you know but you also may be looking over one very important area that impacts your home daily: your mattress.

Did you know, every night our bodies shed a gram of skin, and produce a half liter of sweat? Yuck! Then that sweat, and skin is seeping into your mattress creating bacteria and dust mites.

What steps should you take to properly clean a mattress?

  1. Vacuum. Use the upholstery attachment on your device to properly remove skin cells, dust, and debris.
  2. Deodorize. The sweat on your body seeping into the mattress will cause an odor. Deodorizing the mattress will prevent and neutralize any odors that have settled over time.
  3. Stain Removal. Bodily fluids can transfer right through your sheets causing mattress stains. Removing the stains is time consuming but on the other hand, keeps your mattress new and stops mites from feeding on the bacteria.
  4. Steam Cleaning. This is the best form of cleaning your mattress to prevent allergies.

It is best to clean your mattress once every season.
