Mattress Cleaning Have you found yourself waking up in the morning or the middle of night feeling itchy all over, despite having just laundered your sheets and blankets? Chances are that you haven’t developed a sensitivity to your laundry detergent or fabric softener, but the actual problem may well be your mattress. Did you know that the average person spends about 1/3 of their life in bed, yet when it cleaning, our bedroom mattresses are often neglected? The problem is that your bedroom mattresses are subject to collecting all sorts of upleasant little items that can disturb your sleep and even have a negative effect on your health. Here are some things that one might find hiding in the average persons mattress.
Dust | Pollen
Hair and Body Oils and lotions
After shave and perfumes
Dead Skin | Stains
Perspiration and other bodily fluids
Dust mites (that love to feed on those shed dead skin cells)
Bacteria and germs
You can try steam cleaning your mattresses with a made for home use steam cleaner, however these cleaners lack the power to go much beyond the top layer of your mattress so it is unlikely it will remove all the dirt, pollen and odors that are lingering beyond your mattresses surface. In addition, the extractors on most made for home use steam cleaners lack the power to extract the majority of the moisture out your mattress, causing your mattress to remain damp for a longer period of time and given opportunity for bacteria, mold and mildew to grow. Here at Farmingdale Carpet Cleaning we use only state of the art steam cleaners that are powerful enough to clean deep down into your mattress and draw out all the dirt, pollen bodily fluids and other unhealthy pollutants. In addition our steam cleaners powerful extractors draw out more moisture than those made for home steam cleaner’s extractors can. Your mattresses will dry quicker leaving less opportunity for mold, mildew and bacteria to grow.
While many of these things can’t be seen by the naked eye, they can still help to make your mattress dirty and even create unpleasant odors that you don’t notice when you are sleeping, but become magnified during sleep causing your to get less restful sleep and even wake up without knowing why. In addition, cold and flu germs may linger in your mattress long after the initial illness has past just waiting to make you sick again the next time your immune system is compromised. Of course dust and pollen as well as dust mites and their waste can make you itchy and even lower air quality of your bedroom. Unless you take the time to have your mattresses cleaned periodically. .
