Many people find that keeping their mattress clean is one of the best ways to keep it looking fresh and clean as well as smelling fresh. If you are a new parent and have recently moved into a new home, you might want to invest in a simple dust mop, for your bedroom and perhaps the dining room. If you need to do a quick dusting, or are not sure what exactly to look for to make sure that it’s clean, here are a few tips:
Vacuuming your mattress once a week is a great way to help avoid allergens in the air. Most people who have allergies suffer from the inability to smell certain smells, such as those from pets or smoke. The easiest way to get rid of allergens is to use your vacuum cleaner on the dust particles in your bedding.
If someone in the household suffers from allergies, it is a great idea to get up on the bed and sweep the mattress at least once a week. Be sure to get on top of any loose dirt, and go over the entire mattress, especially the under bedding. Sweep downward as this will pick up much more of the dust than sweeping in a horizontal direction.
Vacuuming a bed takes a lot of time, and can be difficult if there is clutter on the surface of your mattress. If you find that you are unable to get to all the dust, you might want to consider investing in a dusting mat to place underneath your bed. These mats work really well and are easy to set up with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Another option for dusting your mattress is to purchase a dusting brush or an air dryer to use. These can be purchased at many furniture stores and are inexpensive. You simply turn it on, and when you are finished you can get out the brush or air dryer and give the dusting the same gentle treatment that you would give to your floor.
You should never clean your mattress with anything abrasive. If you do, you may end up damaging the foam itself. Never use hot water or bleach, as either of these can cause harm to your mattress.
Dusting your mattress is important, but there is a lot more that you can do to keep your mattress looking great. Using a mild detergent, especially when brushing can help to keep your mattress clean, and in good condition. If you have pets in your home, there are some products that you can use on your mattress to get them off and keep them off the surface.
Keeping your mattress clean is something that you can do on your own. With a little bit of effort, you can maintain a beautiful and comfortable mattress without having to spend a fortune to do so.
