Useful tips to keep your mattress clean
Good sleep is essential for the proper functioning of our body, as during it we regain our physical, spiritual and mental abilities.
One of the most important criteria of good sleep is our mattress, as its condition combined with its cleanliness can significantly improve the quality of our sleep.
It is very common for a dirty mattress to cause great difficulty in sleeping or even while moving in the space around it. These difficulties may be due to allergic (and non-allergic) symptoms, such as:
- nasal congestion
- runny nose
- dermatological issues (redness, irritation)
Therefore, regular mattress cleaning is critical not only for improving our sleep, but also for our overall health.
Is it easy to clean our mattress?
Cleaning and protecting your mattresses from pathogenic microorganisms may seem like an easy task, as it is not exposed to the external environment, however it is not as simple as you might think.
In our mattress we will find a combination of the following:
- Dead cells (from us)
- Various types of moisture (e.g. sweat)
Germs and viruses are scattered and invisible, both outdoors and indoors while at the same time the natural wear and tear of our mattress due to age and season seems to be inevitable.
Maintaining the cleanliness of our mattress is essential in order to make it healthy and safe for us.
5 tips to clean and protect your mattresses
Multiclean is here with helpful tips to help you maintain the health and cleanliness of your mattress as much as possible, despite the difficulties mentioned above.
For this purpose, here are 5 basic tips:
1. Get a waterproof mattress protector
The mattress protector is a cover that protects your mattress from dirt, moisture, leaks and dust mites.
Prefer mattress protectors with waterproof properties as they are more effective than non-waterproof ones, which usually only help to remove small dirt particles.
The mattress protector is easy to apply as it is placed directly on the surface of the mattress, covering the entire part that comes in contact with our body.
Try to wash the protector often, at least 5 times a year, especially if you are allergic to dust mites.
The choice of mattress protector is considered very important for the good health of your mattress and is the first step for its successful protection and long-term preservation.
2. Regularly turn your mattress from side to side
We understand that our mattress can be used on both sides when we can easily use it and alternate its sides.
Spring mattresses and foam mattresses should be turned from side to side at least 3 times a year so as not to spoil the shape and appearance of our mattress in the long run.
At the same time, during the process of changing the side of the mattress, the side that touches our body with a vacuum cleaner should be cleaned.
Keep in mind that the space should properly ventilated before each rotation.
3. Detect and clean "fresh stains" in a timely manner
The faster we locate and clean the stain from our mattress, the more effectively we prevent its wear, as the stain will not sink deeper. Fresh stains are much easier to remove even with the use of water and liquid dishwashing liquid with the help of a towel or sponge.
It is best not to eat on the bed, as this maximizes the risk of stains on our mattress. Finally, for the best possible protection and preservation of the mattress, we recommend washing your mattresses every six months.

4. Wash bed linen often and ventilate the room
Humidity is a source of production and multiplication of germs in your mattress, for this reason it is necessary to ventilate the room frequently.
In addition, due to the sweat and the frequent contact of our body with the sheets and consequently with our mattress, it is necessary to change the bed linen often in order to keep our mattress clean and healthy.
5. Extend the life of your mattress by using a topper
As a final secret for the maintenance and protection of our mattress, we suggest that you use a mattress topper.
Of course, the quality of the mattress also plays a key role in maintaining its longevity, but the main cleaning factors are proper maintenance and the way the mattress is managed.
We understand that our mattress is worn out or old when we wake up tired and caught, or when we no longer feel comfortable on it. The maintenance of the mattress is therefore very important and can be achieved, among other things, through its additional protection with a top layer.
The mattress topper is a layer of foam with a small thickness, which has dual property. Firstly, it is an extra protection for your mattress and secondly, it makes your sleep more comfortable. The top coat can be an economical method that can upgrade your mattress, since even if your mattress is hard and does not suit you during sleep, applying it you can feel more comfortable and light.
In addition, there are memory foam mattress toppers on the market, which take the inclination and shape of your body to improve your sleep.
And in the case of the top layer, regular cleaning and washing is necessary in order to avoid germs and stains that may penetrate deeper and wear your mattress.
With your advice, can I ensure a complete mattress cleaning?
