Ever wonder why your mattress seems heavier years after using it? After years dust, dead skin cells, insect parts, and animal hair can accumulate. When you think of your mattress, think of it as a large air filter. The dust and debris in the air will be pulled downwards naturally by gravity.
You may be thinking it is just time to replace the old one. Before you throw it out, consider cleaning. Mattresses are not cheap. A new king size mattress could cost upwards of a few thousand dollars.
Here is what accumulates over time:
- Dust Mites & Dust Mite Fecal Matter
- Mold Spores
- Insect Parts
- Dead Skin Cells
What are some tips on How to Clean?
- Upholstery Cleaner
- Any household cleaners will work. Removing stains and odors with cleaners will help

Like all maintenance items there should be a schedule and repetition to ensure the life and quality of what is being maintained. You should be cleaning your mattress twice a year, with vacuuming critical in terms of keeping your mattress clean. How often are you spending time on your mattress? Dust mites produce roughly about 2 times their body weight in waste – yuck.
Consider cleaning your mattress to prevent mold and other particles from building up and effecting your health. If you are really not up for it we can do it for you.
