3 Reasons Why You Need to Keep Your Mattress Clean

If you’re like most people, your mattress is one of the dirtiest things in your home. But did you know that it’s also one of the most important? Your mattress can carry and store a ton of dust, dirt particles, dead skin flakes, and microorganisms. 

Dirty and unhygienic mattresses may disrupt your sleep, they can also lead to health problems down the road. That’s why we recommend using HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner to clean your mattress every month and changing the bed sheets every week! 

Here are three reasons why:

1. You’ll get better sleep

Losing just one hour of sleep per day reduces life expectancy. Sleep deprivation decreases immune function, raises stress levels, and causes depression. These are three things you definitely don’t want to deal with on a daily basis.

Not only will regular cleaning your mattress help you get better sleep, it can also improve the quality of your sleep. This is because when your mattress is clean, there could be fewer dirt particles and insects on the mattress that may irritate you when you sleep.

2. Prevent rapid dust mites infestation 

No Dust MitesDust mites are tiny creatures that love to live in moist and dusty areas with plenty of dead skin as food. And as you probably guessed, your mattress is the perfect place for them! Dust mites not only can cause asthma and other respiratory problems, but they can also lead to skin irritation.

Dust mites feed on our dead skin flakes that drop into the mattress when we lay on the mattress and moisture from our body fluid. The best way to prevent dust mites from accumulating is by removing embedded dust and dead skin in the mattress regularly.  De Hygienique uses a specially formulated anti-dust mite solution that can be applied on the mattress to reduce the reproduction of dust mites in the mattress.

3. Expose those nasty stains

Have you ever looked at your mattress and noticed a couple of stains? If so, we’re sorry to say that the stains are probably not going anywhere anytime soon. That’s because the longer something stays on fabric or upholstery (like your mattress), the harder it is to remove once the stain has integrated with the fabric fibre.

It doesn’t matter if you spilled some juice one night, got bloodstains from an injury or even had food coloring bleed onto your sheets, being able to see those stains will make everything feel less clean than it actually is! So what can be done about this problem?

When the mattress is freshly soiled, you can blot the spillage and use warm water to clean the mattress. But if there is a stain, better get a mattress cleaning professional to do the stain removal treatment. Mattress stains can be stubborn to remove, therefore it is best to seek professional help as soon as possible.
