26 Apr Mattress Cleaning Importance: Skin Issues, Aesthetics, Odors
In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the most important reasons why cleaning a mattress regularly matters. Some mattress owners neglect this theme a bit too often, and it may lead to issues that could have been easily prevented by just cleaning the mattress periodically.
At 2 Brothers Mattress, in addition to our wide selection of mattresses, with prices ranging from under $600 up to luxury mattresses with four-figure price tags, we also regularly offer clients basic tips and expertise on how to care for their products (and many other areas). What are some additional reasons why this is such an important task to carry out regularly? Here are a few.
Steering Clear of Skin Problems
Especially for those with sensitive skin, but even for those who don’t have skin conditions, it’s important to keep the sleeping surface as clean as possible. Our skin cells are constantly shedding, and when they mix with sweat, dirt and other particles that may be on the surface of our bodies or in our bedding, it can create a perfect storm for breakouts, rashes and other skin problems.
This is one reason why it’s important to not only clean your mattress, but also to regularly wash your bedding in hot water (and, if possible, to use a drying cycle with high heat as well). If you have pets that sleep in the bed with you, their fur and dander can also exacerbate skin issues, so be sure to take them into account as well.
In certain cases, mattresses that become overly dirty or stained may not be salvageable – meaning you’d have to replace them entirely. Not only does this come with a monetary cost, but it also creates an unnecessary strain on our environment in terms of the resources needed to create a new mattress.
Aesthetics are important for many people when it comes to their bedroom and bed, so taking steps to keep the mattress clean can be vital. If you want your bed to look and feel as inviting as possible, regular cleaning is a must.
Even if you can’t see them, dirt, sweat, skin cells and other particles can build up on your mattress over time – and this can lead to some pretty unpleasant odors. If you’ve ever noticed your mattress starting to smell musty, this is likely the culprit.
Cleaning it regularly can help to eliminate these odors, and in some cases, you may be able to use essential oils or other products to keep your mattress smelling fresh as well. This can be especially important if you suffer from allergies or other respiratory conditions that are exacerbated by strong smells.
A Comfortable Sleep
Finally, one of the most important reasons to keep your mattress clean is that it can help to ensure a comfortable sleep. If your mattress is full of dirt, sweat, skin cells and other particles, it’s going to be much harder to get comfortable – and you may find yourself tossing and turning all night long.
A clean mattress is a comfortable mattress, and this is something that’s important for everyone to keep in mind. If you want to get the best night’s sleep possible, regular cleaning is a must.
