You may clean the sheets regularly, but what about the mattress? We may not clean up once a year.
It should be known that the human body loses about 300-500ml of water during sleep, and metabolizes about 1.5 million dander cells every day, as well as oil and dust on the skin surface, which are directly absorbed by the mattress.
If cleaning is carried out irregularly, the mattress will penetrate from the outside to the inside over time, and the mattress will become a breeding ground for mites.
Among them are not only fungi that can cause allergies and asthma symptoms, but also Escherichia coli that can cause diarrhea, and even Staphylococcus aureus, which is extremely deadly, and produces unpleasant odors.
In order to keep your mattress clean and hygienic, please follow the following mattress cleaning methods to make you sleep healthier.
Before starting to vacuum, remove the sheets and bedding, and then use the vacuum cleaner to move slowly and regularly to ensure complete vacuuming.
Vacuuming takes place approximately every 2 months. If you or your family have severe allergies, you should vacuum every time you change the sheets. If the mattress has been used for a long time, you can also pat the mattress with a stick and use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum, so that you can sink into the bed. Cushion the debris in the deep layer to beat out, to achieve a better vacuum effect.
In addition to regular vacuuming, it is also essential to air the mattress every year. Move it outside to dry and pat to make the dust fall. If you need to clean in a small area, you can clean it with an enzyme cleaner, which can decompose the blood. The protein in sweat, oil stains and other biological stains can also help eliminate odors. Note: If it is a latex mattress, please do not dry it. Drying the latex mattress will easily cause the latex to oxidize, yellow, age and become hard. If the mattress is wet and moisture, it can be placed in a ventilated and cool place to dry.
Baking soda cleans and deodorizes
Avoid using a lot of water to clean the mattress. If you need to clean and deodorize, you can use baking soda to clean. Specific methods:
Sprinkle the baking soda evenly on the surface of the mattress and let it sit on the mattress for at least 1 hour. Alkaline baking soda can decompose acidic substances and absorb the peculiar smell on the mattress.
The vacuum cleaner continues to come in handy, and then use a vacuum cleaner to remove the baking soda until the baking soda is absorbed.
Mattress maintenance tips
For mattresses that do not clearly specify the front and back sides, they should be turned over or rotated every 3 months or so to ensure that the mattress is used evenly and to prevent the mattress from being overused in the same direction and losing its support.
