Mattress Maintenance

It is probably a pretty accurate thing to say that no one thinks about their mattress that often, you think about your bed sheets, your pillows, your blankets. You wonder if the sheets need to be washed soon. They can get soiled very easily. You could probably also assume that the mattress itself is probably pretty clean as it is always protected by sheets. In reality, this is not the case, if you think about how long you have had your mattress for, it would not take much imagination to realise that over 3-5-10 years the mattress will obviously be picking up a lot of dust and other allergens.

There can be a large number of problems that can occur with an ageing mattress, there can be bacteria, germs, dust mites, dead skin and hair and other unseen allergens. All of these things can cause allergies and respiratory illnesses such as asthma. It is definitely recommended that you clean your mattress regularly as it generally can result in better sleep and just keeping your mattress fresh, clean and free from nasty germs and bacteria.


The mattress cleaning process includes a few steps:

  • A dry cleaning solution is applied to remove dust mite bacteria and germs, these things are a leading cause for asthma and hay fever
  • A stain remover is also applied to remove any stains that might be present.
  • The mattress is then steam cleaned with a high suction machine that removes all the dust and dirt from the mattress.
  • Lastly a the mattress is deodorised which helps to leave it fresh which aids in a good nights sleep.

After all the cleaning is done it is recommended that you apply a Scotch-guard protection, this will help keep the mattress clean from future dirt and spills. This is especially important because you don’t want to dirty up a freshly cleaned mattress. It will also just help in the future for maintaining a healthy mattress. We also recommend you get your mattress cleaned yearly at least, and preferably every six months.
