How Do You Clean A Mattress?

About one third of our lives is spent asleep.

Just think about that for one second. OK, time’s up. Now, think about how much time you actually spend in your bed. And, think about how often we crawl into our bed after a long day. Seems oh-so-relaxing, right?

WRONG. Throughout the day, you are working, going outside, and exposing yourself to dirt, dust, oils, and other particles. If you climb into your bed looking for a relaxing night’s sleep, where do you think all of that grime goes? Even if you happen to shower before getting into bed, you’re sleeping for around eight hours per night — body oils, skin cells, and more are still going to seep into the mattress.

That’s why it’s imperative that you clean your mattress on a regular basis. Most manufacturers recommend that you have your mattress cleaned by a professional at least once per year. It’s important for our peace of mind, and it’s important for our health.

But just how in the world do you clean a mattress? Well, in addition to the simple do-it-yourself methods for maintenance, you must enlist the aid of a professional. If you’re in San Antonio, steam cleaning from the professionals at Alamo Steam Team is the way to go. Keep reading to learn more and schedule a mattress cleaning appointment today.

Do-It-Yourself Maintenance

Of course, while professional mattress cleaning is recommended once every 12 months, there are a few necessary methods you should be doing for yourself. That includes changing pillowcases and sheets regularly, washing them with each change, at least once a week. You can also prevent wear and the accumulation of excess gunk by turning your mattress four times per year.

Additionally, you can (and should) vacuum your mattress on a regular basis. It would be wise to do this when you are changing/washing your sheets.

However, even these routine maintenance methods can’t fully mitigate the problem. Microscopic contaminants, such as dust mites, often have a sneaky way of escaping our inspection. This can lead to health problems, foul odors, and a nasty, worn out mattress. That’s where mattress steam cleaning comes in.

Professional Mattress Cleaning

The benefits of having your mattress cleaned by the San Antonio steam cleaning experts are far-reaching. Not only does a steam cleaning job remove odors, dirt, and more in the most efficient way, but it can also help to remove things like urine and other stains.

Pet dander also meets its match when steam cleaning methods are used, ensuring that those pesky dust mites and other crawlies are eliminated without harmful chemical pesticides.

Because your mattress is an investment, it’s imperative that you treat it as such. Having a professionally steam cleaned mattress can help to ensure your bed’s longevity, while also creating a healthier, hypo-allergenic environment.
