Regular Mattress Cleaning – For the “Health” Of It!

Although most people pride themselves on keeping their homes neat, tidy, and clean, it’s surprising how often their mattresses get overlooked.

Because the mattress is covered and looks clean to the naked eye, most of us assume the mattress is “clean.”  The truth is although your mattress may look spotless, you have a mattress pad, and you regularly change your bed sheets, your mattress is not sufficiently clean and can harbor hundreds of thousands of dust mites.

At Tru Clean, we clean hundreds of mattresses annually.  Many of our clients are amazed, and some horrified, at the volume of dead skin flakes, dirt particles and pollen, not to mention millions of dust mites and other organisms that are removed during our thoroughly exhaustive cleaning process.  It’s a well-known fact that over time your mattress gains considerable weight from these contaminants. Pretty gross, isn’t it?

All of that said, what exactly are the benefits of regular mattress cleaning?

Having your mattresses professionally cleaned every 12-18 months will help maintain healthy indoor air quality in the bedroom, extend the life of the mattress, and contribute to a good night’s sleep.

When you consider we spend roughly a third of our lives in bed, maintaining a healthy mattress has health benefits as well.

Whenever a person turns in their sleep, the movement causes dust, pollen, dust mites and other particles to escape from the mattress into the air we breathe. Poor air quality is deemed to be the cause of health ailments from something as simple as throat and eye irritations to more serious respiratory problems which cause symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, watery eyes, and even fatigue.

Dust Mites – Dust Mites – Dust Mites

Fact, any mattress that is slept on has dust mites and the best mattress cover in the world will not prevent dust mites from gaining access to the mattress.

Allergy Management

One of the most common triggers of allergies such as asthma, eczema, and rhinitis is known to be dust mites and their excrement. Since dust mites are commonly found lurking in a mattress then it’s important, particularly if you or a family member suffers from allergies, to have the mattress professionally cleaned on an annual basis to prevent dust mites from taking up residence.

Physicians highly recommend mattress cleaning as many allergy patients have worse attacks at night when they’re sleeping as their bodies react to the dust and mites present in the mattress. Consequently, by minimizing contact with these allergens, you can avoid one more allergy trigger which could cause a serious health condition.

Total Peace of Mind

Knowing that you’re sleeping on a clean mattress rather than one that is full of dust mites and dead skin flakes is sure to help you sleep better and give you total peace of mind. A good night’s sleep is crucial to starting the day right and helps us maintain physical and emotional wellness.

In addition to the health benefits of maintaining a fresh clean mattress, our technicians are able to remove most stains and odor from your mattresses such as coffee, drink, food, and pet or human odor and urine stains.
