Mattress Cleaning - For Your Health and A Good Nights Sleep!

For A Good Night’s Sleep – A Fresh-Clean Mattress Is The Way To Go!

If you live in SW Florida, you may wonder why mattress cleaning is essential. After all, it’s always hot and sunny here – what could be living in your mattress that needs to be cleaned out?

The answer might surprise you: dust mites and allergens. Dust motes love warm, humid climates like the one found in Southwest Florida and can settle into mattress fibers without ever being noticed. Dust mites excrete a protein that can cause watery eyes, poor sleep, skin rash, breathing issues, and stuffiness. Mattresses also collect pollen and viruses (think when you’re sick and sweating, where does the body sweat and coughing land).

What Are Dust Mites?

Dust mites are tiny cousins to the spider. You cannot see them. They exist on a diet of shed skin cells. They do not bite. A mattress can have anywhere from a few hundred thousand dust mites to several million living in it. They dig in and set up house.

Dust mites like dark, warm, and humid environments and feast on shed skin cells. This perfectly describes your mattress, pillow, and other bedding. While mattress covers may help protect from spills, dust mites, pollen, and other allergens, they are not foolproof.

What Are Allergies and Allergens?

Allergies are a general term referring to an oversensitive immune response from the body. They come from pollen, mold spores, fungal spores, dander, and many other microscopic irritants.

For many people, allergens cause allergic reactions, such as hay fever, eczema, watery eyes, and a poor night’s sleep. These reactions can be mild in some cases but more severe in others.

That’s why mattress cleaning is so important – having your mattress professionally cleaned and treated with an anti-allergen agent to help protect against allergens, and help keep your mattress looking it’s very best while extending your mattress’s comfort and life span.

But getting rid of these pesky pests and allergens is far from the only benefit of mattress cleaning; regular mattress cleanings also help reduce odors and extend the life of your mattress. If you want to ensure your mattress delivers a good night’s sleep while staying in top condition for years, mattress cleaning is the way to go.
