While many people put a lot of thought into buying their new mattress, not many think about how to clean it after they bring it home. Mattresses are one of the most frequently used items in the home, but one of the ones that is cleaned the least. Of course the reason isn’t household neglect, but simply a lack of acknowledgment. Thankfully, cleaning a Sealy mattress in Jackson is exceptionally easy, and when done every few months, hardly takes any time at all.
The easiest and best way to start is to use the upholstery tool on your vacuum and run it over the entirety of the mattress. Be sure to get in any nooks or other depressions within the mattress to satisfy yourself that you’ve vacuumed up as much as possible. Be sure you use a firm hand, and if your mattress has a ton of crevices, use the crevice tool to reach into any areas the upholstery tool won’t. If you have a hand held steamer, or if you have access to one, use it first to kill any dust mites living on the surface. Let the mattress dry before going over it with the vacuum.
Don’t Let Stains Sit
There are as many ways to remove a stain as there are to put one on a Sealy mattress in Jackson. It can be tempting to let the stain sit and clean it the next day, but don’t cave into this type of temptation. The longer a stain sits in a mattress the harder it can be to remove, not to mention the bugs and other critters the stain will attract. When you are removing the stains, be sure to avoid soaking the mattress, and be sure to let it dry completely before making it again to avoid the build up of mold.
Chances are you, or at least one member of your family, eats in bed. This can cause the mattress to absorb all sorts of odors, some less pleasant than others. The best way to kill gross odors is to sprinkle some baking soda directly on the mattress, let it sit for about fifteen minutes, and then vacuum it up. Another way to get out odors is to use a Febreeze like solution, which will also kill any lingering bacteria. Again, be sure to avoid over soaking the mattress, which could cause a buildup of mold and the resurgence of odor.
