Why is cleaning your mattress important?

How often should you be cleaning your mattress?
Many people would bat an eye at the thought of cleaning their mattress. It’s just not on their to-do list. Cleaning their sheets seems to be enough for them.
Your bedding itself should be washed at least once a week. This will minimize the amount of oil, sweat, skin, and fluids that get into your mattress. And your pillows should be cleaned at least four times a year. But this doesn’t exclude your mattress from needing to be cleaned. When it comes to the mattress itself you should try to clean it twice a year.
Are you worried about what might be hiding in your mattress while you sleep?
If you are worried about what type of pests might be hiding under your sheets, aside from cleaning your mattress yourself, you can always get your mattress professionally cleaned. Professional mattress cleaning is one of the easiest steps you can take to protect your health from a dirty mattress.
