How to Clean Your Mattress

You may clean your sheets and your pillow cases, but do you ever clean your mattress? While the covers will prevent a majority of the dirt and bacteria from coming in contact with the bed, they do not provide full protection. On average, you can sweat out a half a pound of perspiration every night, which your mattress then absorbs. With that thought in mind, our expert cleaners have explained how to thoroughly clean your mattress.

Vacuum: Many people do not realize they can use their vacuum on places other than the floor. Once you have the sheets off the bed, vacuum the mattress to remove any dust and dead skin cells that have made their way through the covers. It is important to use the upholstery attachment as running the entire vacuum over it could spread more debris. While you do not need to do this every time you clean your sheets, you should do it every time you rotate the bed.

Deodorizing: With all of the debris and sweat that has been sitting on the mattress for quite some time, you are likely to notice your bed has a distinct smell. Our cleaners, who have years of experience in our janitorial company in Bucks County, have dealt with deodorizing some overpowering smells and have developed highly effective strategies to remove them. We recommend spreading baking soda over the mattress and allowing it to sit for 30 minutes. After the set time has elapsed, vacuum it up with the upholstery attachment.

Stains: As with any stain, immediate action will prevent it from setting and leaving a lasting mark. The first thing that you should do is blot it with a cool, damp cloth and then use a dry cloth to absorb any moisture. When blotting, use a pressing motion, rather than circular, to avoid rubbing in the stain. If there is still a mark after doing this, make a solution of baking soda, salt, and water. You should allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes and then brush it off.

With these tips, you can sleep comfortable knowing that you are laying on a clean mattress. To learn more cleaning tips from Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC, a leading name among commercial cleaning companies in Bucks County, visit our blog page.
