A standard cleaning process usually consists of cleaning floors, wiping down surfaces, doing the dishes and laundry as well as washing your beds’ sheets, blankets, and pillowcases.
If the mattresses in your home are not entirely clean, however, there are still a lot of germs and contaminants in your home that you overlooked. North York Carpet Cleaning Team offers a wide range of cleaning services including mattress cleaning.
You spend a third of your life sleeping and, therefore, a considerable amount of time on your mattress. During a night’s sleep, your body produces around a half a liter of sweat, and you shed about one gram of skin cells – enough food for nearly two million mites and bacteria. Your mattress is also home to a lot of fungal spores.
Apart from parasites, your mattress is also filled with allergens such as pollen, dust particles, mite excretion, pet dander, and mold spores that get trapped in the mattress fibers as air circulates your room. When you sleep on your mattress or when these particles become airborne, you inhale these parasites and allergens. Inhalation can cause or trigger several conditions, including allergies, asthma, irritations, nasal stuffiness, or respiratory problems.
Professional Mattress Cleaning
While the situation may seem dire, the good news is that it is possible to keep your mattress free from harmful pollutants. The North York Carpet Cleaning Team provides extensive mattress cleaning services in the area with long-term results. The process we follow to clean a mattress generally consists of four steps. We start the cleaning process by vacuuming your mattress with an industrial standard vacuum that is fitted with a clean attachment to extract bigger particles like dust, pollen, skin cells, and mold spores.
Dead skin cells, sweat, and other bodily fluid will, over time, result in an unpleasant odor. After vacuuming your mattress, we deodorize it to get rid of odor sources and give your mattress a fresh scent. We then clean your mattress to remove stains and remaining germs and bacteria.
Lastly, we steam clean your mattress to kill any remaining mites or bacteria and to neutralize allergens. After steam cleaning your mattress, we dry it completely to prevent mold development, water damage, and damp odors. We recommend that you have your mattress professionally cleaned at least once every six months. You should also machine wash all pillowcases, sheets, and blankets once a week to get rid of dirt.
