We are frequently mislead into believing that our mattress is generally clean and does not require cleaning because it is constantly well covered and appears perfectly clean. While our mattress may appear luxurious and comfortable when covered with a clean pair of bed sheets that is changed on a regular basis, this is NOT enough to maintain our mattress clean for sleeping.
Regardless matter how frequently you change your bedsheets and cover your mattress with an anti-dust mite cover, you will be amazed by the volume of dirt particles, dust, dead skin flakes, dried fluid residue, and millions of dust mites and other microorganisms that live within the mattress. The mattress, in fact, is known to have the largest concentration of dirt particles and house dust mites in a home. Isn’t this a disappointing discovery?
So why should you maintain your mattress clean?
1. Maintaining a healthy level of indoor air quality in the bedroom
We spend an average of 8 hours per day in bed sleeping, which equates to one-third of our lives, thus maintaining good indoor air quality in the bedroom is critical. When we turn on our beds while sleeping, fine dust particles in the mattress are expelled into the air, which we then inadvertently breathe in.
Poor indoor air quality has been linked to a variety of health issues ranging from minor eye and throat irritation to significant respiratory infections, resulting in symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, upper respiratory congestion, exhaustion, and more.
2. Recommendation for allergy prevention practice
Dust mites and their faeces are a common cause of allergies such as asthma, rhinitis, and eczema. Because house dust mites are mostly located in mattresses, it is critical to ensure that dust and house dust mites are fully removed from the mattress to keep their presence to a minimum. Doctors strongly advise allergy sufferers to clean their mattresses on a regular basis since allergy patients sometimes have their worst episodes while sleeping because their bodies are reacting to dust and house dust mites from the mattress. As a result, by limiting one’s exposure to certain allergens, one will have fewer allergy triggers, which may result in major health problems.
3. Good sleeping hygiene provides complete peace of mind.
Sleeping on a clean and hygienic mattress gives you complete peace of mind at night, especially when you know you’re sleeping on a mattress that contains kilograms of dead skin flakes and dust particles, as well as millions of home dust mites crawling in the mattress every night!
A good night’s sleep is essential for a productive day. In fact, research have proven that getting enough sleep is essential for improving our physical and emotional health, which is equivalent to our overall well-being.
