Steam Cleaning its perfect for mattress
Because our mattress is always nicely covered and looks spotless clean, we are often misled to think that our mattress is generally clean and would not require any cleaning. While our mattress may look plushy and cosy, covered with a clean set of bed sheets that is changed regularly, this is NOT sufficient to keep our mattress clean for sleeping.
Despite your regular bedsheet changing practice, covering mattress with anti dust mite cover, you will be surprised when you discover the volume of dirt particles, dust, dead skin flakes, dried fluid residue and not to mention millions of dust mites and other micro organism that thrive well within the mattress. In fact, the mattress is known to contain the highest amount of dirt particles and house dust mites in a home. Not a pleasant discovery, isn’t it?
So exactly why you should keep the mattress clean?
We spend an average of 8 hours a day on the bed sleeping, which equates to 1/3 of our lifetime, so it is very important to maintain good indoor air quality in the bedroom. Whenever we turn on the bed while we are sleeping, fine dust particles in the mattress are bellowed out into the air which we then breathe in without our realization.
Poor indoor air quality has been blamed by studies for causing many health ailments from as simple as eye and throat irritation, to as serious as respiratory diseases, causing common symptoms like sneezing, watery eyes, upper respiratory congestion, fatigue, etc.
