How to Keep your Memory Foam Mattress Clean

Keeping your home clean is at the top of many different people’s list. The funny thing is people usually forget to clean an item that gets a lot of use. They forget to clean their memory foam mattress, or any other mattress type you may have. This should not be forgotten. Mattresses collect dirt, dust, and other allergens. This can cause your mattress to degrade faster causing you to need a new mattress sooner. While there are companies like Dreamfoam Bedding, that sells mattresses for reasonable prices, there is no reason to buy a new mattress unless you absolutely have to. Below are ways you can both clean your mattress, and reasons why you should make sure you clean your mattress.

All mattresses are known to collect allergens and many other things as mentioned above. This can really be harmful to you and your family. The difficult part is that you cannot usually see the microscopic dust, bacteria and dust mites that are on your mattress, no matter they type of mattress. This means that we breathe in that dust while we sleep. Breathing in this dust can be especially harmful to those with asthma. Breathing in the dust can also trigger a person’s allergies. We can wake up with runny noses, itchy eyes, and much more. Our bodies also deposit dead skin cells while we sleep. Our mattress will just continue to absorb all of those skin cells. This can be really detrimental to your overall beds comfort level. This is another reason why you should make sure that you clean your memory foam mattress.

Making sure that you vacuum your memory foam mattress every few months will keep you and your family healthier.

Just consider vacuuming your mattress every few months when you do a deep cleaning of your entire house.

If you have stains on your mattress you will definitely want to try and get those out. Stains can have an odor and potentially degrade the quality of the mattress. Thankfully there are a few things you can try to get the stains out. One thing to try and get the stain out is to spot clean stains with a small amount of laundry detergent and water. Make sure that you do not soak the mattress, as this can be harmful to the material that makes up the foam in the mattress. Just getting it damp will work to get the stain out.

Laundry detergent may not work to get every stain out. If the laundry detergent does not work, try using a combination of hydrogen peroxide and water. This combination is a little bit stronger than the laundry detergent and may work on stains that have been setting on your mattress longer.
