How To Deep Clean Your Mattress

All right, who's ready to really get into spring cleaning this year? Let the fresh air in, get ready to roll up your sleeves, and get excited: we're going to talk about how to give your mattress a thorough cleaning. A mattress may be used more often than any other furniture in our home, although it is seldom included in our regular cleaning procedures. To improve your sleep quality and decrease the accumulation of perspiration, dust mites, and allergies, consider cleaning your mattress twice a year. It's a great way to keep your bedroom free of pests and clean and comfortable all night.

It's recommended to replace your mattress every 7–10 years because of the gradual degradation of the mattress's materials. The layers and fibers in your mattress will last longer, and you'll get better rest if you clean it once every six months.

Here, therefore, are the steps for a thorough mattress cleaning.

1. Vacuuming the entire mattress.

Use a different vacuum cleaner than you have at home. To ensure that you remove all of the dust, grime, hair, and dead skin from the mattress, you should use tiny circular movements over the whole surface. An upholstery attachment for your vacuum might simplify cleaning, but it's not required. For the following stages to work well, you'll need a spotless surface, so take your time and be thorough. Using a vacuum with a HEPA filter may help keep allergens at bay and clean the air in an allergy sufferer's home. In addition to washing your sheets regularly, maintaining an air filter in your room might help prevent allergens that would otherwise collect into your bedding.

2. Use Hydrogen Peroxide and Microfiber cloth.

Get a spray bottle and fill it with your own cleaning solution. Put one cup of hydrogen peroxide, one cup of cold water, and two generous squirts of dish soap into the container. If it doesn't work, try a slight shaking! You should spray the solution all over your mattress and then use your hands to feel for any dry places. This cleaning solution can safely come into contact with your bare hands without fear. To clean the stains away, try using a Microfiber cloth. Hydrogen peroxide has the potential to lighten or even bleach dark beds, so tread carefully.

3. Use a Spotter machine.

Because of in-bed eating, night perspiration, or the presence of young children or pets, you may need to clean up a few stains. Chemically dissolving stains and smells may be aided by an upholstery cleaning or enzyme-based odor remover. Using the product's recommended method, spot-treat any visible stains on the bed's surface, then wait for it to dry entirely before recreating it. Another approach to removing stains from a mattress is using a steam cleaner. As it works through the layers, it dislodges oils and blasts away any germs lurking.
