How to clean a mattress
Most of your time is spent on a mattress, so it is important so it should be comfortable and kept clean. To achieve those things, you should clean your mattress every now and then. In this blog we will give you ideas and recommendations on how you should clean and maintain your mattress.
Why you need to clean your mattress
Your mattress is a place where you sleep every night, so it obviously collects dirt. The dirt it collects its usually dead skin, sweat, stains and dust mites. The build up of the dirt can make its way through your linen and onto your mattress, resulting in lingering smells, grime (dirt ingrained on the surface of something), and bad air quality. A dirty mattress can lead you to allergies, insomnia, and even respiratory problems in more severe cases. Clean your mattress every now and then to get better night’s sleep and look after your health
How to clean a used mattress
It is recommended that one should clean spills as quickly as possible with warm, soapy water and a cloth. Dust mites and debris (scattered pieces of rubbish or remains) are removed with a soft brush. Cleaning products are not usually recommended, and vacuuming is also not recommended as it might ruin your mattresses.
How often do you need to clean your mattresses?
The recommended time that one should clean their mattress is twice a year but that does not mean that one should not clean the spillages that will happen over time. Technically it is once every six months and around spring or autumn for long lasting freshness.
Other mattress care tips
To avoid the dirt building up on your mattress one should wash their bed linen and any mattress protectors. Washing it at least once a week should do the trick. One should also consider investing in a mattress protector and for those who do not know what it does, the name suggests. A mattress protector goes in between the mattress and bed linen to protect your mattress from any spills or damage. These can be waterproof to absorb any moisture or anti-allergy to help sensitive skin. It is also recommended to rotate your mattress in between cleans. This means rotating head to food, not flipping because many mattresses do not have the soft foam padding at the bottom. Rotating your mattress helps avoid dirt from gathering in one place. It also helps avoid sagging and extends the life of your mattress.
