You use your mattress every single night, which makes it one of the top-used pieces of furniture in your home. Just like couches and recliners, mattresses get dirty. From sweat to skin oils, your mattress accumulates dirt, substances, and germs that should be removed regularly. Think about it: if you have a mattress for 20 years and have never cleaned it, who knows what’s built up on it? You wouldn’t go that long without vacuuming or cleaning your couches, so why go so long without cleaning your mattress, where you sleep for eight hours or more a night?
Hiring a professional mattress cleaner in Metro Detroit can keep germs, bacteria, and even bed bugs out of your mattress and home.
You may assume your mattress is fine because you use mattress protectors and sheets, but those things are not impenetrable. Thanks to tiny holes in those layers, dust and oils still find their way onto your mattress. Throughout the night, our bodies shed dead skin, fluids and hair which all build up over time. This debris is a breeding ground for dust mites, fungi and bacteria which can cause health problems and also lead to odors. Plus, they can degrade the mattress materials over time.
Dust mites thrive in unclean mattress because they feed on dead skin. Did you know that humans shed 1 1/2 grams of skin a day, which can feed one million dust mites? These tiny bugs are pretty much invisible, so just because you don’t see or feel them doesn’t mean they’re not there, making a home in your mattress. Dust mites, which can poop twice their body weight each day, cause allergic reactions in humans and pets.
When mattresses are not professional cleaned regularly, that excrement can fill and ruin your mattress. Hiring professional mattress cleaners twice a year will keep dust mites from taking over your bed and affecting your health.
Mold and Dander
Dirty mattresses are breeding grounds for all sorts of allergens, with mold and pet dander being the top culprits, aside from dust mites, that thrive in those environments. This can cause sneezing, allergic reactions, itching, and even asthma attacks for susceptible people. These allergens can lead to poor indoor air quality throughout your home as well. Plus, soiled mattresses harbor harmful bacteria and viruses which could compromise the immune system.
Keeping a clean mattress dramatically reduces the risk of bed bugs. These blood-thirsty insects are miniscule and nocturnal, which means they feed on your skin cells and blood, resulting in itchy rashes and allergies. They burrow into your mattresses’ crevices and seams in the day, then come out at night when you’re sleeping. Keep these guys from setting up shop with regular mattress cleaning in Michigan.
Stains and Odors
Mattresses accumulate stains and odors caused by spills, sweat, and child and pet accidents. Those stains look nasty but also lead to unpleasant odors, which can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.
