How to Clean a Mattress in Singapore?
If you want your sleep to be as good and comfortable as possible, one of the first things you should do is to ensure that your mattress is clean. Nothing beats the feeling of crawling into your fresh bed after a long tiring day and opening your eyes the next morning surrounded by the smell of clean linen and soft sheets.
As most of your life is spent sleeping, it gives you more than enough reason to learn how to clean a mattress. The last thing you want is to spend your precious rest and sleep time on a smelly and musty bed!
Here are some helpful tips you can follow to keep your mattress as clean as possible:
Remove All Your Bedding
Remove the blankets and sheets from your bed before cleaning the mattress. Put them in the laundry using the hottest allowed setting to kill off dust mites. The fabric mattress toppers and pillows should be washed, too.
Deodorize the Mattress
Get rid of odors on your mattress with baking soda. Sprinkle and gently rub baking soda on the mattress to let it stick to the surface moisture. It will work better if you leave it on the mattress longer, from 15 minutes, and if possible, up to a few hours.
After deodorizing the mattress, you can now vacuum it using the upholstery attachment. Narrow and overlapping paths should be used to clean the sides and top of the mattress. Avoid pressing too hard to ensure that you don’t reduce the suction of the machine. Don’t forget to clean those groves near the edges and seams. If you like, you can use the crevice attachment for the job.
Eliminate the Stains on Your Mattress
Spot treating each stain is recommended to remove them. Never pour anything directly on the cleaner or use a carpet shampooer or steam cleaner. You should avoid making your mattress wet since mold will grow inside once you do, particularly if you have a memory foam one.
The stain remover you use should be matched with the stain’s cause. Clean first the similar types of stains before proceeding to the next. There is no need to wait for the stain remover to dry first before you clean the next type of stain.
If you want to remove sweat stains, for instance, spray hydrogen peroxide lightly on the area until it is damp and not soaking wet. Allow the spot to air dry. Once the peroxide dries off, the stain will also fade away.
Flip Then Repeat
After you have finished cleaning and drying the top of the mattress, you can now flip it then repeat all the steps above for cleaning its other side. However, this should only be done if the construction of the mattress is the same on both sides, like in the case of most spring mattresses.
