Why you need to clean your mattress more often

An adult needs an average of 7-9 hours of sleep per day, meaning we would spend at least 1/3 of our lifetime on the bed to rejuvenate for the following days. With the amount of time we spend attaching ourselves onto our beds, we should definitely clean our mattresses more often just like how we maintain our home cleanliness regularly. Most people probably never have the thought of cleaning their mattresses until they spilled something onto it. How often do you clean your mattresses? Rarely or never ever? 

Why do you need to clean your mattress often?

It is recommended to thoroughly clean your mattresses at least twice a year or every 3 months. Getting your mattress deep cleaned can get rid of any dirt and dust, sweat and dead skins that you shed and accumulated underneath the bed sheets. By doing so, you get to remove and prevent the growth of dust mites. Dust mites feed on human dead skin cells and are pests that thrive in humid environments like any upholstery furniture such as the sofa, carpets and mattresses. These creatures cannot be seen with our naked eyes but a tiny amount of the skin cells, sweat and hair we shed daily can feed up to 1.5 million dust mites.

You would not want to belittle these tiny dust mites because they can emit foul odours and are potential allergens that can cause allergy symptoms such as skin rashes, sneezing or coughing. Therefore, it is crucial to thoroughly clean your mattresses regularly to manage the hygiene of your mattress and have a peaceful sleep. 

Isn’t replacing my bedsheets and pillow sheets regularly sufficient?

Well, replacing your bedding and pillow sheets regularly is indeed a good habit to maintain a clean sleeping environment but what you’re essentially doing is just cleaning up the surface of your mattress which might not be sufficient. Hence, regular deep cleaning for your mattresses on top of a weekly or bi-weekly change of sheets is highly recommended.
