The Importance of Vacuuming Your Mattress


Vacuuming your mattress is essential for several reasons. Unknown to many, the mattress collects a high amount of dust and dirt particles daily. The more often you lie on the bed, the more dust and dead skin particles are collected within the mattress.

So, just like any soft furnishing, the mattress needs regular cleaning to ensure you don’t sleep on a dusty and filthy bed.

Unlike fabric sofas or carpets, mattress manufacturers do not recommend any form of wet cleaning for mattresses as moisture may damage the mattress components, especially the inner layers of thick padding. 

Thus, thorough mattress vacuuming would be recommended for regular maintenance to clean and remove the embedded dirt and dust particles. 

Engage professional mattress cleaners to deep clean mattresses, especially when mattress stains are spotted. The professionals are equipped with the necessary equipment and cleaning products to ensure the cleaning treatment is safe and appropriately carried out.

Why is Vacuuming Mattress Important?

Removes Dust and Dirt

Though often ignored, vacuuming your mattress is essential to keeping it clean. Your mattress collects dust and dirt like any other piece of upholstery in your home. Over time, these particles can work their way deep into the center portion of the thick mattress, making them difficult to remove. 

Food crumbs can sometimes settle on the mattress for mattress owners who eat on the bed. Food particles often attract pests like ants and cockroaches. So, to sleep in a hygienic environment, regular mattress vacuuming helps remove fine dirt particles before they can settle in the mattress.

Remove Allergens

Another reason you should vacuum your mattress is to remove potential allergens like house dust mites that thrive very well within the mattress. 

Dust mites are tiny creatures that thrive in dusty environments. They feed on the dead skin cells we shed each day, commonly found in mattresses and pillows.

While dust mites don’t usually cause problems, their feces can trigger allergies in some people. If you suffer from asthma or allergies, frequently vacuum your mattress  to remove these allergens and improve your symptoms.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Most people don’t give much thought to the air quality in their homes. However, the air we breathe has a big impact on our health. Dust, dust mites, pollen, and other allergens can cause respiratory problems like asthma attacks.

Poor air quality can also lead to headaches, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. Given the importance of indoor air quality, it’s important to take steps to maintain good bedroom hygiene – a very important area where we sleep and rest for at least 6 hours a day!

Prolonged Mattress Lifespan

Finally, regular vacuuming will help extend your mattress’s life by preventing the accumulation of dirt and other debris in the bed. As dust and dirt particles build up in the mattress, the mattress can wear down prematurely over time. The mattress upholstery may weaken and become more susceptible to wear and tear.

So, if you wish to prolong the life of your mattress, give your mattress a thorough vacuum regularly using a good HEPA filter vacuum machine.
