Mattress Cleaning

When you go to sleep at night, the last thing that you probably worry about is your mattress. If you have fresh linens, you probably feel that your bed is clean.

But what if your mattress is full of dirt, dust, mites and other allergens? It’s unhealthy for you to be sleeping on.

You don’t have to replace your mattress if it is in good shape. But, by having a professional mattress clean performed you can remove these unwanted particles and mites so that you can get a good healthy night’s sleep.

Is Your Mattress Affecting Your Health?

The older your mattress gets the more dead skin cells, body oils, dirt, dust, dander and other allergens collect on and in it. They can be affecting your health as well as damaging the mattress itself. When you are in your bed and move around disturbing these particles, and they are being released into the air.

Have you ever woken up from a night’s sleep, and your allergies were worse than when you went to bed? Were you coughing, did your eyes itch, maybe you had a sore throat? A mattress cleaning may help to eliminate these problems.

Perform an inspection of your mattress. Do you see any stains or loose particles? Mattress cleaning can remove these and make the air quality in your home healthier, in turn, giving you a better nights sleep.

Mattress cleaning will also help keep your mattress in good shape so that it will last for many years.

Dust Mites

Dust mites are a major problem, especially for those who battle allergies. 8 out of 10 people that have asthma are allergic to dust mites. These around 1000 of these microscopic pests can fit on the head of a pin. A professional mattress steam clean can kill these insect-like organisms while removing other allergens and mould.

Health Benefits of Mattress Cleaning

Proper mattress cleaning is very important. A dirty mattress is constantly exposing your family members to dirt, perspiration, body oils, pet hair and food particles. These unwanted pollutants can be causing allergies, respiratory issues and other health issues.

Steam cleaning is the most effective mattress cleaning method. The steam is able to penetrate your mattress and remove harmful particles while killing 99.99% of bacteria, germs and dust mites.

Tips for Taking Care of Your Mattress

A mattress is an investment, and if taken care of properly will provide you with a comfortable nights sleep for many years to come. Typical mattresses are intended to last from five to ten years, but this all depends on how well maintained it is.

The first step in taking care of your mattress is knowing the proper way to do so. Here are 12 tips that will help you protect your investment.

Use Proper Support

Mattresses need support to preserve their shape and prevent wear. A spring mattress generally requires that you use a box spring, while a foam mattress requires more firm support. To determine the correct type of support, check the manufacturer or warranty policy for their recommendations.

Beds frames should be designed to handle the weight of your mattress and the sleepers. Larger frames such as queen and king should have a central support bar. Platform beds use slats, but they still may need extra support depending on the type of mattress that you purchase.

You should perform an inspection of your bed frame regularly to make sure that it is giving your mattress the support that it requires.

Use a Mattress Protector

The best and easiest way to protect your mattress is by using a mattress protector. A high-quality mattress protector will offer waterproof protection while protecting your mattress from dust, dirt and debris. They also protect the mattress from sweat, oil, allergens, dust mites and pests.

Newer protectors are soft and comfortable, and you will not even be able to tell that you have it on your bed. Older mattress protectors were of plastic and were uncomfortable to sleep on. You no longer have to deal with the unpleasantness of these old designs.

Vacuum Your Mattress

To help reduce the building up of dust and allergens vacuum your mattress at least twice a year. First, remove all the linens and the mattress protector. Then use your vacuum’s upholstery attachment to remove any loose particles. Take your time and pay extra attention to the seams.

Wash the Linens Frequently

Bed linens should be washed every week to every two weeks. Your sheets collect your sweat, body oil, hair and dead skin cells. They become a breeding ground for bacteria and encourage dust mites.

Rotate the Mattress

All mattresses need to be rotated regularly. This helps to promote even wear. Sleeping on the same area night after night will lead to depressions and softening.

Depending on the type of mattress that you own you may also benefit from flipping it along with rotating it.

No jumping on the bed

You were a kid once and probably jumped on your bed. Were your parents wrong in scolding you for doing so? No, because rough-housing can cause serious damage to the mattress. It can break springs, damage the fabric and tear a foam mattress. The bed frame can also be damaged, and the child could fall off and injure themselves.

No Pets Allowed

Pets love to cuddle, but it is best to give them a bed of their own. Even the best-groomed pets bring dirt, dander and droll up onto the bed. They also have accidents from time to time which can completely ruin a perfectly good mattress.

Air it Out

Take off the sheets and open your windows. Allow your mattress to get some fresh air and direct sunlight. The fresh air will help to remove odours, and the sunlight is a natural disinfectant.

Don’t Bring Home Pests

Bedbugs are almost impossible to get rid of once you have an infestation. Whenever you are staying away from home, take precautions so that you do not transport them back with you.

The number of bedbug infestations are increasing at an alarming rate. These insects can be transported long distances and will take over your home if given the chance.

Don’t Eat in Bed

A bedtime snack might seem harmless, but can leave behind crumbs which will invite bugs. The most common types of bugs that are attracted are ants and cockroaches.

Spills are also common when eating in bed, and they can easily cause damage to your mattress.

Mattress Steam Cleaning

Follow your manufactures recommendations and have mattress cleaning performed regularly. We recommend that you have your mattress professionally steam cleaned every 6 months.

Move it Properly

If you need to move your mattress, it is a good idea to wrap it in plastic. In doing so you will be protecting it from dust, dirt, allergens and bed bugs. It will also protect the mattress from the weather.
