How Often Should Mattress Cleaning Be Done and Why?
Have you ever thought about the fact that you probably have your upholstered furniture cleaned once or twice a year, yet you probably spend less time on it than you do your mattress? You spend roughly a third of your life in bed – more if the family hangs out there from time to time. Doesn’t it make sense that it should be cleaned at least as often? It used to be that mattresses needed to be flipped a couple times a year and that was when you’d dig out your vacuum and do a bit of cleaning. Now that most mattresses cannot be flipped, few of us take the time to do a proper mattress cleaning even though it is still needed.
Mattress cleaning is important for a few reasons. First, it can make your mattress smell fresher and provide a more pleasant sleeping environment. In addition, it can remove dust mites, dead skin cells, and other debris that can exacerbate your allergy symptoms. Mattress cleaning also removes fleas, mites, and other pests you don’t want to share your bed with. Finally, regular mattress cleaning will extend the life of your mattress.
Doing your own mattress cleaning is possible, but it is far from being an easy task. It is also time consuming and if you don’t do it properly, you could end up damaging your mattress. The best solution is to call a professional. A good rule of thumb is to have mattress cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and carpet cleaning done together a couple times a year.
