Looking after your Mattress

A healthy mattress is a lot more important that you may realise. Not only does it help to reduce allergens, but it can also improve your sleep. Local cleaners Haus Maids are delighted to give you advice on how best to maintain your mattress.

According to Dreams, the bed shop you spend one third of your life on your mattress, so it pays a big part in your general health and well being. They also recommend you change your mattress every 8 years.

So that’s eight years of maintaining your mattress, here are so tips to help your mattress and bed.


  • Use a Protector: A mattress protector just adds an additional washable layer to your mattress. This helps prevent stains and keeps the mattress clean.
  • Don’t forget to Hoover : Mattresses benefit from a hoovering now and then when you change the bed. This removes dust, dirt and hairs. Haus Maids can carry this out for you during our home cleaning domestic service.
  • Keep airing: It’s always good practice to air a mattress now and then by opening a window on a dry day. You could also consider sprinkling bicarbonate of soda over the mattress, leave for several hours, then hoover off, this will help with any odours.
  • Lose the Stains: To remove spot stains, you can use a paste made from lemon juice and salt. Apply to the area, leave for 50 minutes, then clean away with a cloth.
  • No Pets on the Bed: Pets will bring dirt and hair onto your mattress and potentially carry bed bugs, probably best just to keep the pets away from the bed.
  • Turn your Mattress: Turning regularly to prolong its life and prevent it developing an uneven surface..
