Of all the things that need to be done around the house, mattress cleaning is often the one that is overlooked. Every night, our bodies make about half a liter of sweat and shed nearly a gram of skin. Your mattress can easily become home to fungal spores, bacteria, and dust mites that feed on your shed skin.
Having your mattress cleaned is even more important than having the carpets and upholstery in your home cleaned. You may believe that a mattress doesn’t need cleaning unless there’s a spill or accident, but the truth is that it requires more regular cleaning because of how often you use it.
Reasons Why Mattress Cleaning Is Important
The average mattress is home to about 2 million dust mites. It's no surprise that without regular mattress cleaning, your mattress can be the dirtiest thing in your entire house.
Indoor Air Quality
Many allergies, headaches and respiratory illnesses can be traced back to a soiled bed. Dust mites produce feces that are a common allergen in humans when inhaled. Bacteria and fungal spores can also trigger an immune response when taken into the body. Even worse, these pests have no natural enemies in their environment, so they reproduce at alarmingly quick rates. It’s not uncommon for a bed to harbor more than a million dust mites. In some cases, the sheer amount of dust mites can be enough to increase the weight of the bed.
House dust mites live mainly in mattresses, and they’re a highly common trigger for allergy issues including asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Removing them from mattresses reduces their presence. Doctors recommend regular mattress cleaning for their allergy patients because they often have bad allergy attacks while sleeping as their bodies react to the dust mites in the mattress.
How Often Should You Clean Your Mattress?
Most of us either turn a blind eye to whatever is living in our mattress or fail to give it any thought at all after we remove our sheets and put them in the washing machine.
The bedding itself should be washed at least once a week to minimize the amount of oil, sweat, skin, and fluids that get into your mattress, while your pillows should be cleaned at least twice a year.
When it comes to the mattress itself, aim for a minimum of twice a year or once every season.
