Studies show that our mattresses and sheets can be breeding grounds for bacteria and other harmful pathogens. You wash your sheets, but when was the last time you cleaned your mattress?
What’s Hiding In Your Mattress?
Luckily (or maybe not so luckily), Zerorez® Tucson has pulled some facts together for you, to show you just how gross mattress’ really is.
Between dead skin cells, dust mites, dust, dirt, bacteria and fungi, hair, and dander, there are more than enough reasons to have your mattress professionally cleaned twice a year.
Humans shed half a billion skin cells everday, most of which finds it’s way into your mattress, just in time for those hungry dust mites to feast.
Yes, this is a thing…
An Ohio State University study estimates that 100,000 to 10 million of them may be hanging out in your mattress…
Did anyone else feel that cold breeze?
According to WebMD:
The average adult sweats 26 gallons a year in bed. That makes your mattress a warm, moist home for fungus and bacteria. Recent lab tests from swabs taken from 7-year-old mattresses found more than 16 million colony-forming units of bacteria per square inch.
That’s more than five times the amount in a mattress bought a year ago. Yeast, mold, and bacteria including E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus all can be bunking in your mattress.WebMD
It’s not a bad idea to have your mattress professionally cleaned even after buying a brand new one. A culprit many of us don’t tend to think of is harsh chemicals that lie in a brand new mattress.
A recent study found that body heat may help release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from your mattress. These come mainly from petroleum-based polyurethane and chemicals like formaldehyde and flame retardants in the mattress.WebMD
Now that we’ve covered that dirty details, let’s talk about some steps we can take to minimize tracking all of these things into our slumber, and learning more about the Zerorez® Mattress Cleaning In Tucson service.
Zerorez® Mattress Cleaning In Tucson
We wash our sheets pretty often, but when was the last time we cleaned our mattress‘?
It’s kind of ridiculous isn’t it?!
The patented Zerorez® process is perfect for your mattress.
The process works much the same way as our carpet cleaning. We’ll begin with a pre-soak to agitate and loosen deeply embedded dirt, germs, and other miscellaneous nasties.
Next, we’ll clean the heck out of that mattress using our Powered Water® cleaning solution at a high-pressure, while simultaneously suctioning out the dirty water left behind.
Using Powered Water® allows us to thoroughly clean the important surfaces of your home without the use of harmful chemicals or cleaning agents.
This leaves your mattress and other home surfaces, residue free® and safe for children & pets.
Much like your carpets and tile, you can even choose to apply a mattress protectant after your cleaning service, to keep that mattress cleaner, longer.
Our anti-microbial protectant helps to keep your mattress a safe sleeping environment, and adds to your mattress’ precious life span!
Keeping Your Mattress Cleaner Longer
While there might not always be a perfect method for keeping your mattress clean in between cleaning, there are some things we can do to minimize tracking all of the dirt/germs into our slumber.
You’ll find these steps are much like the steps we take to keep our carpets and tile clean:
- Refrain from wearing your shoes on the bed. The bottom of your shoes are home to more than 400,000 types of bacteria after just 2 weeks of wear.
- In addition to cleaning your mattress twice a year, it’s not a bad habit to thoroughly vacuum that puppy beforehand as well. More if you’re feeling ambitious!
- Like your carpets and rugs, you’ll want to clean any spills or accidents immediately by applying Powered Water® and dabbing up the spill or accident with a clean handcloth or paper towel.
- Rotating your mattress every 6 months is ideal for controlling natural wear, tear, and staining.
- Using a waterproof mattress cover or washable mattress protector is never a bad idea, especially for the little ones.
Get more life out of your mattress with a twice-yearly Zerorez® cleaning! And it’s a lot less expensive than buying a whole new mattress every couple of years…
