How to Clean a Mattress

mattress cleaningOur poor mattresses, they help us get a good night sleep and we neglect them pitifully over time. We think they will last forever and just keep serving us.

But did you know that you need to clean your mattress from time to time to make sure it stays in good shape and healthy to sleep on?

Well you do. It just needs to be done in such a way as to not hurt the mattress’s stuffing.

First you need to remove the mattress from the bed and vacuum it top and bottom along with the sides. This removes dust, debris and any dust mites that might be hanging out in your bed.

These can be such allergens that this step alone can help you breathe better.

Now with upholstery shampoo or other mild detergent lightly wash the surface of both sides. Careful not to get the mattress too wet though. If it is a nice sunny day just set the mattress out on a clean tarp or cloth and let it dry. Alternative method of drying can be to let a fan blow on it indoors.

Make sure it is thoroughly dry before you place it back on the box springs. Then, if you are not using a mattress protector you should be. This will make it easier to keep the mattress clean. You will only have to wash the protector each time you change the sheets. The mattress will always need to be vacuumed, but with a protector you will not have to shampoo it quite as often.

Taking care of your mattress will make it last longer and create a healthier environment to sleep in. It cost quite a bit of money these days to buy a new one, so be sure to protect your investment.
