How to clean a mattress Step by Step

1. Take off bed linen and take it to wash

Take off bed linen

First, strip your bed of all bedding. This includes the comforter, sheets, and cushion. Put them all in the washer. Dry them. You don’t have to wash pillows every time. But, you should give them a good wash at least four times a calendar year, if they are allowed by their label care instructions.

2. Vacuum the mattress thoroughly

Vacuum the mattress

Vacuum your mattress. If you own an upholstery attachment, you can use it for this task. Do not use an attachment that is not designed for rolling brushes, as it could damage the mattress surface.

Use narrow, overlapping movements to clean the sides and tops of your mattress. Pressing too hard will cause your machine to lose its suction. Make sure to clean the edges and seams, as they can collect dust and dead skin cells. For this part of the mattress, you can switch to the crevice attach.

3. Remove stains and odors from the mattress using home remedies or special cleaners

Remove stains and odors from the mattress

The mattress should be flipped on its side. Securely prop it in place. Place a fan near the end to blow down both sides. You can also use two fans to direct the mattress directly. To increase airflow in the room, open the windows and turn on the ceiling fan if necessary. The best way to accelerate drying is to turn up the heat using a space heater that is set at a safe distance away from the mattress.

Or, take the mattress outside. You can also use concrete blocks or sawhorses as platforms to support the mattress and allow air to circulate. To make it easier, flip the mattress over and hold it in place. Leave the mattress outside to dry in the sun and wind. You can speed up the drying process by attaching a couple of fans to extension cords and pointing at the mattress. When the mattress has completely dried, it can be returned inside.

7. Protect your mattress with a mattress topper

Protect your mattress with a mattress topper

Protect your mattress from damage with the mattress topper. Even though you want to avoid spilling anything onto your mattress topper, accidental spillages are quite common. You may also be exposed to bodily fluids, like sweat, urine, or other fluids. They can also get absorbed while you sleep.

The mattress topper cover is made from a water-resistant layer. This prevents any liquids from entering the mattress. The mattress topper can be easily washed with normal sheets and pillowcases in the event of liquids spilling onto the bed. This is an effective and simple way to save your mattress.
