Updated: Apr 20

If you've never thought about having your mattress professionally cleaned, you're not alone! Find out why it's a good service to consider.




What is a mattress cleaning service?


If you're like most of the population, it may have never crossed your mind to have your mattress professionally cleaned. But if you've slept in a hotel you probably have!


Steam cleaning a mattress is the best way to deep clean a mattress. By using very hot water, a high powered vacuum and eco-friendly cleaning solutions Mr. Steam Carpet Cleaning can remove body oils, dead skin cells, bed bugs, urine, stains and odors.


Why is Deep Cleaning a Mattress Important?


Dust mites and fungi can grow and in your mattress and trigger allergies. This can disrupt your sleeping and make it uncomfortable for you when laying in bed.


If a child or older adult is experiencing incontinence issues the urine can penetrate deeper into the fabric than a towel or surface cleaner can affect. Left alone, the top layer may be dry but harmful bacteria can grow deeper down in the material leaving a very unpleasant odor.


Food and drink spills are also common and can leave behind residues that stain the mattress, allowing different kinds of bacteria to flourish.


Cleaning your mattress reduces the risk of allergies, itching, and prevents certain illnesses by getting rid of harmful bacteria. It is important to clean your mattress at least twice a year or, better yet, with the change of the seasons.


How Can I Protect My Mattress Between Deep Cleanings?


Bed sheets are the most common barrier used to protect a mattress during daily use. Sheets are very breathable though, which means it allows air flow from the mattress up and back down. They aren't great at protecting your mattress.


Plastic-lined mattress protectors can be very effective to prevent moisture and liquids from absorbing into your mattress.


Foam pads will also protect your mattress but will still have the same absorption issues, gathering up body oils and dead skin cells, the way an unprotected mattress will. This will mean you need to discard and purchase a new pad every year since we can't clean these.
