6 Reasons Why It’s So Important To Clean Your Mattress

A lot of people think that cleaning their house in places where they can see the dirt is how they need to keep a home clean but the truth is that there are a lot of places in our homes that we cannot see how dirty they get.

Ever heard the expression, “What you don’t know can’t kill you?”, well, in this case, it’s “what you don’t see won’t kill you” and it’s the absolute wrong way to go about keeping your house clean.

One of the places you need to be paying (extremely) close attention to is your mattress and considering how much time you spend using it as well as how close you get to it, it’s worth knowing why it’s that important.

Dust mite haven
Dust mites love these areas in your home because of the fibres that mattresses have. Also, you sleeping on the mattress and shedding your skin on it gives the dust mites all the warmth, comfort, protection and nourishment they need to thrive. Do you think you could sleep as soundly as you do knowing that your mattress could be a bed bug infested haven? It is really important to get rid of these mites from your mattress primarily because not doing it can have serious health implications for you and your family. Using your Kirby Avalir 2 to vacuum your mattress will not only ensure you are breathing easier at night but that the dirt is not staying trapped deep in the mattress. Sadly, most vacuum cleaners these days are not powerful enough to draw the dirt from deep inside the mattress, therefore leaving it trapped and leaving yourself exposed to the health risks.

Dust is unhealthy
If you suffer from allergies or someone you live with suffers from allergies then you will understand how painful and annoying it can be when something triggers your sinuses. Going to sleep on a dirty mattress every night doesn’t only aggravate your allergies but if you are not someone who suffers from allergies or asthma, the dust can actually eventually make you allergic. The longer you keep sleeping on a dirty mattress, the more you are putting yourself at risk.

A clean mattress means a healthier nights sleep
Think about it, sleeping on a dirty mattress every day, breathing the impurities in while you sleep is bound to get to you after a while. If you haven’t already picked up allergies, chances are the dust in your bed is causing you health problems that you may not even be aware of. A clean mattress means you are able to breathe freely and not be at risk to inhale all of the dust, impurities and dust mites lurking below. Plus a clean mattress and clean sheets feel really great.

Avoid skin issues
If you are someone who has problems with sensitive skin then you should know that continuing to sleep on a mattress that is not clean only puts your skin at further risk. Dust and impurities can be a nightmare for people who have sensitive skin as well as leave you feeling itchy all over, all the time. It only takes a slight interaction with dust to have a reaction to it and the effects can last for hours after. The last thing you should feel after waking up is itchy and uncomfortable.

Improve your comfort level
There’s a reason we don’t simply throw all our garbage in the middle of our living room and sit on it to eat, relax or watch tv. Apart from it being totally unhygienic, it is not comfortable. The same goes for your mattress, just because you cannot see the dirt, does not mean it’s not there. Humans are creatures of comfort and who can blame us, relaxing on a nice comfortable bed is a great way to end the day. Wouldn’t it be great to feel like this all the time and not worry about what could be crawling around beneath you or even on you?

This is why it is essential that you keep your mattress clean. It’s just the best thing you can do for you and your family’s health.
