What To Look For

Mattresses should be turned periodically end over end (for pillow topped mattresses) and for all others, flip it bottom to top as WELL as end over end. Rotating a mattress keeps it from wearing out in the same spot night after night! I always find that after I rotate my mattress, I get a much better nights sleep. 

Every time I change my mattress pad, I make sure I vacuum the surface of my mattress as WELL as the boxed springs. Be sure to vacuum the sides and if you can slip beneath your bed, be sure to get the undersides as well. By removing the dust from your mattress, you cut down on dust mites living in your mattress. Recent studies have also discovered all SORTS of critters sleeping in your bed with you … things like disease & allergy causing bacteria, fungi, germs mold & mildew and heaven forbid, dust mites. 

Dust mites like warm, dark and humid conditions like your mattress and get this … 90% of people with asthma have an allergy to the dust mite! YUCK! Do you realize that you can be exposed to up to 2 million mites in your mattress at one time, so for pity’s sake people … clean your mattress!! Keep your mattresses clean! Take care of them and they’ll last for years and years! Be sure to vacuum it regularly and keep the rotation going! Spray it lightly from time to time with a fabric freshener before you turn it … and be sure to buy a pad!

Healthy Tips

Flip your mattress over every six months,.-  To provide even wear, flip the mattress so that the top is now on the bottom, and turn it so that the foot of the mattress is now at the head. Depending on the size of your mattress, this can easily be a two person job.

Cover the mattress, to protect it and extend time between cleanings-  Consider purchasing a mattress cover to protect the surface of your mattress. Choose a washable cover that is easy to remove and replace on your mattress. Some covers are even designed to reduce dust mite allergies, and reduce the need to vacuum your mattress.

Remove dust from the mattress surface.-  Dust, dander, and dust mites build up in your mattress. Even those of us without allergies can begin to notice dust and dirt in our mattress. Vacuum your mattress using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. If someone does have allergies in your home, you may need to vacuum more frequently and/or purchase mattress covers.

If the mattress surface becomes dirty or soiled, use an upholstery shampoo.-  Following the directions exactly, use an upholstery shampoo to clean dirt and soil from your mattress surface. Or, mix a mild detergent with water until suds form. Apply the dry suds only to the soiled area using a sponge. Wipe the area with a sponge that has had warm water wrung from it. Allow the area to dry thoroughly.
