Mattress cleaning is a very important part of helping to keep your family safe from bacteria and germs that can accumulate in the fibres of a mattress.
A mattress can collect a huge amount of dead skin and this skin acts like dust particles and can cause allergies with some people. Regular vacuuming of a mattress is important to help keep it clean and dust free.
The Best Way to Clean Mattresses
The best way to clean a mattress is with a steam clean, this method gets deep down into the fibres and will release dust particulates that normal vacuuming just leaves behind. Most people don’t vacuum their mattresses enough. A mattress should be vacuumed at least twice a year to help stop the build-up of contaminants.
A professional mattress cleaning company would firstly do a thorough deep vacuum with a power headed vacuum cleaner, with hospital grade filters. These high grade filters will stop the dust being blown back onto the mattress during the vacuuming.
After the vacuum a pre stain treatment is applied to the whole mattress and left to dwell for about 10 minutes, this dwell time will allow the cleaning solution to work on releasing the dirt within the fibres. Then the steam cleaning is done this is best done with a high powered cleaning machine.
If there is any signs of urine on the mattress a sanitisation can be sprayed over the mattress after the cleaning process, or if done with a truck mounted machine it can be ran through the steam at the same time as the cleaning.
Mattresses and Bed Bugs
Mattresses can also be a harboring place for bed bugs. These insect will hide under any folds in the mattress and a physical inspection of the whole mattress is very important, bed bugs are very hard to find and kill within a mattress, if there is a tear somewhere on the mattress the bed bugs can harbor deep within the mattress. This is another good reason to hire a professional mattress cleaning company to help prevent a bed bugs problem from occurring.
Mattress protectors are a good way of helping to keep a mattress clean, as the protector can be easily removed and put in the washing machine. This is also the best time to give the mattress a thorough vacuuming.
