How to Clean Your Mattress

For a good nights sleep and good health it is essential that your mattress is kept clean. Why clean your mattress?

Better environmental hygiene improves your health. According to Environmental Protection Agency 50% of all illnesses are aggravated by polluted indoor air.

The number 1 source of this pollution is the dust mite. They are microscopic eight legged arachnids, are invisible to the human eye (0.3 mm in length) and can crawl through bedding fabrics and feed off the skin particles we shed as we are lying in bed.

For allergy sufferers the bedroom is the primary source of dust mite exposure in the home. About 60% of mites are found in the mattress as we spend on average 8 hours of every day in bed.

To control the dust mite allergens, the mattress should be regularly cleaned at least every 6 months. Here are simple instructions to keep your mattress clean

When you sleep your body sweat combined with the dead skin provides a great environment for the proliferation of dust mites. Airing of your mattress each morning for a few hours and periodic vacuuming each month will help to keep your mattress aerated and help to minimise any health risks.
