We’re back at it today and as part of our Spring Cleaning Series, we’re talking about mattresses! Knowing how to properly clean the mattresses in your home can not only protect your investment but also extend the life of your mattress.
Take a look at these 5 Simple Steps in our Mattress Cleaning Guide and decide if you’re up to the challenge or need the help of professionals. AmeriClean offers in home cleaning for mattress under our upholstery cleaning services.
Step 1: Vacuum
After removing your mattress cover, vacuum the mattress top entirely. This will remove any lint from sheets, pet hair, or crumbs from late night snacks.
Step 2: Spot Clean
Using the AmeriClean “Spot Out” Bottle and a damp rag, begin treating any visible spots on the mattress. In the instance of an old stain, place the “Spot Out” solution directly on to the mattress and let stand for 30-60 minutes.
**AmeriClean “Spot Out” Bottles are given to customers free of charge at time of cleaning for carpet or upholstery. To receive a “Spot Out” Bottle, schedule an appoint with our offices!
Step 3: Deodorize
To get your mattress smelling fresh and clean (enter in Outkast song here), we recommend using a aerosol Febreze to lightly coat the top and sides of the mattress. Please note: some suggest using a dry powder; such as baking soda. We do notsuggest this method because the powder can get within the mattress and not be thoroughly removed simply by vacuuming.
Step 4: Air It out
One of the best things you can do for your mattress is to allow it time to air out. Once you have thoroughly cleaned the mattress, allow it to sit without sheets or a protector in order for the fabrics to breathe.
Step 5: Protect
If you are not already using a mattress pad, this would be a great time to add one. Mattress pads and protectors act as a safe guard for your mattress and protect from future dirt, stains, and dust that can accumulate over time. Using either a mattress pad or protect will help protect the condition of your mattress and extend the life.
