We are often very careful to make sure that our homes are clean. It is important to our health to have clean floors, clothing, bathrooms, kitchens and more. We have learnt that dust and grime not only looks bad but can affect our health too.
Nevertheless, there are some spots that are overlooked that need to be kept clean too. If you are changing your bed sheets regularly and you use a mattress protector, you probably think that your bed is clean. But did you know that despite doing these things you still could be sleeping with a build up of skin, hair, dirt and bacteria?
Skin, hair and cleanliness
Each day humans shed skin, approximately 10 million scales of it. This is a lot of skin and if you think about it, the vast majority would be in our beds as we spend at least eight hours sleeping in the one spot.
Even if you are diligent about showering before you go to bed your skin and hair shedding will still cause bacteria and allergies as it settles there in the cloth of your mattress. But think about the times you haven’t showered.
There are those occasions where after a long day you are too tired to do anything but climb into bed. How clean were your feet, your hands, and the rest of your body? Sure you wash the sheets but what about the dirt that made its way through the cloth into your mattress? It does happen.
Bed bugs and other creepy crawlies will soon catch on to the fact that there is a meal to be had in your mattress. Dust mites, amongst others, feed off the hair and skin that you shed which makes your mattress a lovely warm home with plenty to eat. Not ideal for your sleeping area.
Your health is at risk
Mattresses that are not cleaned regularly by a professional such as someone from our team at Best 1 Cleaning are bad news for health. All kinds of bacteria and mould can start to take over and cause sickness and even asthma in some cases. Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are two strains of bacteria that can be found, plus more.
Don’t wait for your bed to be taken over; keep it the safe haven of sleeping it’s meant to be. Contact us at Best 1 Cleaning today for a professional clean that will leave your mattress as good as new again.
