How to Clean a Mattress - Bedzzz Express

Untitled-2Every day the average person spends six to eight hours a night sleeping on their mattress. While sheets do a good job or protecting the mattress, it is still advised to clean it every now and then to remove the dust, stains and odors that build up over the years.

How to remove dust

Over time, mattresses accumulate dust which can aggravate allergies. The easiest way to rid your mattress of dust is to use a vacuum with an upholstery attachment. Make sure to press down firmly to get the dust out from beneath the surface and in quilting creases. Garment steamers can also be used to go over the mattress to help remove dust mites on the surface. If you have dust allergies, vacuuming surface allergens might not be enough. Removable allergy covers are available for all sizes that will protect your mattress from dust, dust mites, pet dander and pollen.

How to Remove Mattress Stains

Whether it's from eating in bed, pets or children, many mattresses eventually get unsightly stains. Do not use harsh stain removers but instead use upholstery cleaner or a sensitive dish soap or detergent. Mattresses do not dry quickly and if they remain wet for long periods of time can mildew and develop unpleasant odors. Try and use as little water and product as possible to remove the stain. Once the stain is removed blot the area with towels to remove excess water. Do not put bedding back on the mattress till the spot has completely dried.

How to Remove Mattress Odors

Over time mattress can begin to develop unwanted odors. Any disinfecting/odor killing spray that is safe to use on fabric is safe to use on a mattress. Baking soda can also be used to absorb unwanted smell. Sprinkle on the top of the mattress and let sit for 15-30 minutes. Then vacuum up before putting the bedding back on.
