For a good nights sleep and good health it is essential that your mattress is kept clean.
Further accidents and spills do and more often than not, will happen. We do not recommend simply letting the mattress dry and forget it ever happened. Your mattress may be dry, but the odor will still linger, and the stains will surely set.
Here are bedsonline’s tips for keeping your mattress clean
Cover the Mattress
Purchase a mattress protector to protect the surface of your mattress. A mattress protector will reduce the effects of liquid spills and body fluids staining your mattress. Choose a washable cover that is easy to remove and replace on your mattress. You should wash or replace your mattress protector regularly to keep yourself and your mattress clean and healthy.
Turn your Mattress
Turn the mattress so foot is now the head and bottom is top. Manufacturers usually recommend that you turn your mattress every two weeks in the first three months then, once every two months thereafter but if you don’t have time, do it at least every six months. Depending on the size of your mattress, this can easily be a two person job. Remember that the handles are not intended to be used for turning; only use them to position the mattress on the base.
Vacuum your Mattress
Dust mites can live even in a clean mattress. When removing your mattress protector or turning over your mattresses. Vacuum your mattress using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. If someone does have allergies in your home, you may need to vacuum more frequently.
Clean if the mattress is dirty
Latex is a natural, biodegradable foam derived from rubber trees. Latex foam contours to the body’s curves, and moves with the sleeper as they move, providing continuous orthopedic support. Body weight is spread over the entire sleeping surface, minimizing “pressure points” and creating a more comfortable sleep.
A latex mattress may be a good option for allergy sufferers because they’re less likely to harbour mould and dust mites.
