Your bed is your home. You spend roughly 1/3 of your life on a mattress, yet you barely clean it. Honestly, it should be on the top of your list of regular cleaning duties. If you aren’t aware of the dangers and health concerns that a dirty mattress has your body, then you’re in for a big surprise.

Health Concerns

When you sleep, you naturally perspire. This ends up leaking through to the mattress. If you wanted a water bed, then you would’ve bought one. Now that you’re completed disgusted, that’s only one of the many interesting things that you’ll find when you look into a foam mattress. There’s also dust mite fecal matter, dirt, allergens, and stains. The only thing separating you from all of these nasty pieces is your clothes and a thin sheet.

Buying a New Mattress

Now, if this isn’t enough for you to take care of your mattress, you can always resort to a mattress replacement instead. Although you might not want to keep buying new mattresses, if you’re long overdue for one, then that’s fairly reasonable. Be sure that when you purchase your new mattress that you ensure its cleanliness. Seriously, it’s a brand new mattress, how are you just going to neglect it and end up in the same position that you were prior to buying this one?

If you want you and your loved one to stay healthy and away from as much of these gross things, then make sure that you take the time to clean your mattress foam every once in a while. It takes less than an hour and you’ll feel comfortable knowing you’re not laying on a graveyard.
