Having your mattress cleaned is even more important than having the carpets and upholstery in your home cleaned. You may believe that a mattress doesn’t need cleaning unless there’s a spill or accident, but the truth is that it requires more regular cleaning because of how often you use it. There are many benefits of mattress cleaning, here’s why:

Importance of cleaning a mattress

No matter type of mattress you have on your bed, it is still critical to regularly clean your mattress to remove unwanted dust mites, body oils, sweat, dead skin and other residues from pets and children. The material used to make up mattresses isn’t always designed to be stain-resistant, as a mattress is always covered, unlike carpets, rugs or upholstery. Stains may be difficult to remove from mattresses, but the main reason for cleaning in not stain removal but rather to extract soil and disinfect the material. Take note, if your mattress has a warranty (most come with a 10-year warranty), the warranty company may require professional companies, like Pristine Clean, to clean the mattress.

The benefits of cleaning a mattress

Fresh, clean bedding can make you believe that your mattress is just as clean as the sheets and comforter, but that’s not the case. Mattresses can contain the highest amount of dust mites and dirt particles in a home, even with regular bedding changes and anti-dust mite covers. Cleaning your mattress most certainly assists with eliminating dust, dirt and dead skin cell flakes, but there are further benefits.

  • Healthier indoor air quality

The average adult requires 8 hours of sleep a day, which equals 1/3 or your lifetime and gives a very good reason to maintain healthy indoor air quality in your bedroom. When you turn in your bed at night, it stirs up fine dust particles from the mattress that you can breathe in. Those dust particles can lead to poor indoor air quality that causes health issues such as throat and eye irritation, sneezing, upper respiratory congestion, watery eyes and fatigue.

  • Allergy management

The house dust mites mainly live in mattresses and they’re a commonly the reason for allergy issues including asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Doctors highly recommend regular mattress cleaning for patients who suffer from allergy attacks while sleeping as their bodies react to the dust mites in the mattress. Minimizing contact with the allergens can reduce allergy triggers that could lead to a more serious health condition.
