Dust mites

Dust mites love to live in your mattress. It provides warmth and humidity and serves as a home for many allergens. If you suffer from asthma or eczema, dust mites can cause your symptoms to worsen. The best way to prevent your mattress from harbouring dust mites is to clean it regularly. If you do not want to invest in an expensive mattress cleaner, you can try reducing the moisture in your room by using dehumidifiers and air conditioning.

Keep Dust Mites Under Control

The life cycle of dust mites includes the egg, larva and tritonymph stages. These stages are dependent on humidity and temperature. The larva stage develops into six-legged pupae before it moults into a deutonymph. The second and third stages are nymphs and adult mites, with the adult female being larger than the male. It is unclear why dust mites cause allergies, but indoor air pollution is a primary factor. Many people spend most of their time in bed, so it makes sense that dust mites would find a mattress attractive. The bed is a warm, moist environment with an abundance of allergens and food sources. These mites can cause havoc on the sleep of anyone with asthma or eczema.

Cleaning stains

If a mattress is stained, it can be an unattractive place to sleep. While cleaning a mattress, you should blot any spills immediately, to prevent the stain from sinking in deeper. You can also use a spray solution of vinegar or ammonia to remove stains. After applying the solution, you should wait for several hours before reusing the mattress. If the stain is yellow or dingy, you can try using hydrogen peroxide to remove it. For best results, spray the solution onto the stain and leave it for five minutes. If the stain is still present, call Magic Dry to perform a thorough mattress deep-cleaning.

Sanitizing a Mattress

If you want to keep bugs from living in your mattress, sanitize your mattress after every cleaning but make sure you don’t oversaturate it with liquid. A soggy mattress is an open invitation for mould and mildew to grow. Deep cleaning your mattress will help you get rid of any harmful bacteria and mould. Apart from restoring your mattress to its original condition, you will also get a sense of comfort.

Try Cleaning Your Mattress with Baking Soda

You probably know that cleaning a mattress can be a difficult task if you don’t have a mattress protector. This is not a problem, however, because there are some simple steps that you can take to clean your mattress. First of all, sprinkle baking soda liberally all over the surface of your mattress. Let this sit for at least 24 hours before vacuuming it. The baking soda will draw out dirt and moisture. Once it has dried, vacuum it up and your mattress will be fresh and clean.
