Have you ever thought about how much time you spend on your bed throughout your life? Has cleaning your mattress ever crossed your mind?
To put it in perspective, the average person will spend about a third of their life—or 318 months—sleeping. Makes you think twice about the condition of your mattress, doesn’t it?
Not Cleaning Your Mattress Impacts Your Health
Each night, your body produces around half of a liter of sweat and sheds about a gram of skin. So where does all of that end up? You guessed it—on your mattress.
Unfortunately, your mattress is actually likely one of the most significant sources of bacteria, fungal spores, and dust mites in your home. In fact, the average mattress holds close to 2 million dust mites.
So what’s the big deal about being exposed to all of this? First, it impacts the air quality in your home, which in turn affects your health. Basically, whatever is on your mattress—pollen, mold, viruses, bacteria, pet dander, and more—is transferred into the air you breathe and into your body.
The quality of the oxygen you breathe in as you rest and recuperate each night can greatly influence your health. The air of your room can even cause allergies, respiratory issues, a compromised immune system, and more. Your mattress plays a bigger role than you might think.
The Best Way To Clean Your Mattress
Cleaning your mattress twice a year is essential to promote better sleep, improved health, and to extend the life of your mattress (because we all know how much they cost to replace).
Vacuuming your mattress regularly and using disinfecting sprays also helps. However, these cleaners can deposit chemicals onto your mattress that cause allergies, skin irritations, respiratory issues, and other health concerns when inhaled or ingested.
