A mattress is a place where we spend a third of our lives sleeping. That's why it needs to be cleaned regularly, as dust and dirt can have a negative impact on your well-being.

Regular airing or frequent bedding changes do not solve this problem completely. That's why House Digest shared a method of effective cleaning with a vacuum cleaner.

People tend to vacuum the floor at least once a week, but in fact, this device is more multifunctional than you thought.

Over time, mattresses, like other household surfaces, accumulate dust, dirt, grease particles, sebum, etc. In addition, dust mites can successfully breed there, so you should take regular measures to get rid of them.

How often should you vacuum your mattress

Experts recommend vacuuming mattresses every 3-6 months, but if you suffer from seasonal allergies or dust allergies, you should do it much more often.

How to vacuum a mattress properly

To begin, remove all mattress covers and bedding and send them to the washing machine. Then, empty the dust and debris bin to better track how much dust the vacuum is pulling out of your mattress, and attach the upholstery attachment to prevent dirt from transferring from the floor to the bed.

Finally, slowly vacuum the surface of the mattress by pressing firmly but gently on the appliance. This approach will allow the appliance to suck up not only dust from the surface but also some of the dirt from the inside.

If your mattress has folds or other hard-to-reach areas, use the smaller nozzle on the vacuum to clean them.

How to freshen your mattress and get rid of odors

If you don't like the smell of your mattress or just want to freshen it up, you can do it with baking soda. Just sprinkle it on the surface and leave it for 30 minutes. The powder will neutralize all odors and also absorb the remaining moisture from sweat. After that, just thoroughly remove the baking soda with a vacuum cleaner and enjoy cleanliness and freshness.
