Is Your Mattress Making You Sick?
We spend nearly 1/3 of our life sleeping, which amounts to a good deal of time laying on a mattress. A clean mattress is important for a good night’s sleep, and here’s why.
Mattresses can collect mold, mildew, and dust mites, which are microscopic bugs that live in upholstery, carpets, and beds and eat dead skin cells from people and pet dander. 100,000 to ten million mites can be found in used mattresses, and a 2 year old pillow can weigh 10% more due to the mites and their waste.
Dust mites living around your home can cause allergies and asthma, however your symptoms can be significantly lowered if you eliminate the mites by changing your sheets and vacuuming these surfaces once a week, and steam cleaning your upholstery once a month.
If you’ve been going to bed on the exact same mattress for a long time, you possibly haven’t yet detected an odor because you’ve become desensitized to it.
And it doesn’t matter how careful you are, especially if you have kids or pets, you will most likely end up with a few stains on your mattress eventually.
Cleaning stains off your mattress is often a difficult job, most household cleaners contain toxic chemicals that could pose a threat to your health, and shouldn’t be used on your mattress.
You also need to be careful not allow the mattress to become overly wet when cleaning by using excessive amounts of water or cleaning solutions, it should only feel a little damp.
When Was The Last Time You Cleaned Your Mattress?
A professional steam cleaner’s equipment cleans the surface of the mattress and penetrates deep into the mattress foam or springs. Regularly cleaning and sanitizing your mattress can greatly reduce the amount of contaminants you are sleeping on in your mattress, which can ruin your sleep and affect your health.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get a good night’s sleep on a clean, healthy mattress and wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and energetic?
