How To Maintain Clean And Dust Your Mattress

Jul 4, 2011

The bed is the focal point of every room. But sadly, this is also the one most neglected. Mattresses are not regularly cleaned. As a result, dust mites and bed bugs collect in it.

Minuscule creatures inside your bed can actually cause skin problems. Bed bugs, for instance, usually feed on your dead skin cells. They cause rashes and skin infection. Dust mites also have similar effects. When inhaled, they can also trigger an abnormal production of histamine in your system. This leads to unwanted physical problems such as wheezing, coughing, trouble breathing, sneezing and watery eyes.

Needless to say, you have to maintain the cleanliness of your mattress all the time. Try the following bedroom cleaning tips:

Tip 1: Always use a vacuum cleaner when cleaning the area below the bed and the mattress. Using other cleaners without a suction formula might only transfer dust particles into the air. You are merely scattering dust everywhere in your room. Choose a vacuum cleaner that has HEPA or high-efficiency particular air filter in order to remove dust in the air.

Tip 2: Vacuum all sides of your mattress at least once a month. Run the vacuum cleaner using one direction only for more effective cleaning. Make sure you cover all areas, especially the sides and the edges of the bed.

Tip 3: To avoid collection of dust, try using mattress covers or try placing mattress toppers. Many people tend to shy away from mattress covers because they usually have the plastic interior that is quite uncomfortable. But today, you can find covers with more comfortable materials. Also, use mattress topper that is resistant to dust mites.

Tip 4: Change your bed sheets and pillow cases once a week. Dust particles and bed bugs are not the only ones you are in danger of. Your skin also sheds off dead skin cells and sebum. They can encourage bacteria and germs to breed in your sheets and pillow cases.

Wash them in lukewarm water and use a mild detergent. Hang them up to dry completely.

Tip 5: Avoid lounging on your bed while eating. Also, avoid hopping into bed if you just went outdoors. Your clothes can contain sweat, bacteria, and germs that will surely get transferred to the mattress. Change into clean clothes first if you want to maintain a clean mattress.

Tip 6: Close windows during windy days. The wind can carry dust into your room and they can easily travel to the surface of your bed.
