From the outside – mattresses are covered nicely with a clean set of bed sheets that are changed regularly. But does that mean the mattress is actually clean?
When viewed from a microscopic perspective, mattresses are exposed to all sorts of grime. There is dust, body oils, dead skin cells, sweat and other residue from food and pets that get through to the mattress and can accumulate over time. This can eventually build up and become the perfect breeding ground for fungi, bacteria, bugs and dust mites.
If you do not clean your mattress regularly, there’s a high chance that your mattress could become one of the dirtiest places in your home. Other than itching and allergic reactions like rhinitis, eczema, rashes and hives, the accumulated micro-organisms can disturb your sleeping patterns and, worse – can cause other health conditions over time, like asthma.
Having your mattress professionally cleaned is an ideal solution to not only prolonging the lifespan of your mattress but also keep your mattress bacteria free, help you sleep better and improve the air quality in your home.
So what benefits does professional mattress cleaning actually provide?
Reduce the risk of allergies and illnesses
There are times when it’s difficult to sleep at night and you’re continuously itching or your nose is blocked or running. Dust mites and bed bugs can trigger allergies which can disturb your sleep rhythm. Cleaning your mattress professionally removes the irritants and reduces the risk of allergic reactions, itching and other illnesses. More importantly, you get a quality night’s sleep that helps improve emotional wellness and physical health.
Better air quality
It is very important to maintain the air quality of your bedroom – after all, we spend on average, 8 hours a day in our bedroom which is about one third of our life. Just imagine how harmful those fine dust particles and residue that are found on the mattress would be. They can lead to poor indoor air quality that causes health issues such as throat and eye irritation, sneezing, upper respiratory congestion, watery eyes and fatigue. Better air quality also ensures that you are able to relax and sleep on your bed comfortably.
Longer lasting mattresses
While vacuuming carpets and cleaning the house are regular tasks, one part of homes that is often overlooked are the mattresses. The life and usability of a mattress can be extended when it is regularly cleaned from dirt, dust and bacteria. Using the services of a professional cleaner like Organic Carpet Cleaning, who have the equipment and know-how to deep clean the mattress using a non-toxic method, without damaging it, can benefit the lifespan of your mattress greatly.
