How to care for your foam mattress
By: EzySleep

How often do you clean your mattress? If you're anything like the average person, it's probably not as often as you should be. The truth is that mattresses collect a lot of dirt and dust over time-and not just on the surface. Allergens like mold and fungi can accumulate in the material if it isn't cleaned regularly. And while some people may think that washing their bedding will get rid of all these things, this is actually not true at all!

So what's to be done about this problem? One option for keeping your foam mattress clean is to vacuum it every week or so. However, there are other options too-ranging from professional cleaning services to DIY projects at home. In this blog post, we'll explore all of these methods, so read on for different ways to keep your foam mattress clean-and rest easy knowing that it's taken care of!

1) Use a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment to suck up all the dirt and dust on the surface of your mattress. This is a quick and easy way to get rid of most of the build-up, and it's something you can do yourself without any special equipment or products.

2) If your vacuum cleaner doesn't have a hose attachment, use the upholstery brush instead. This will help to dislodge any dirt or dust that may be trapped in the fabric of your mattress.

3) For really tough stains or areas with a lot of built-up dirt, use a spot cleaner or carpet cleaner to clean them up. Just be sure to test this product in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it won't damage mattress.

4) If you have a pet that likes to sleep on the bed, try using a pet hair remover to get rid of all the fur. This will help reduce the amount of allergens in the mattress and make it easier to vacuum or clean later on.

5) Use mattress encasements and protectors for elongating the life of foam mattresses. Using a quality mattress encasement cover will protect your foam from moisture and dust mites. A protector is also great for keeping the bed bug, dust mites population and allergens down to zero. If you want to get more out of these two items, then invest in a good pillow protector or even box spring covers, which can be very helpful if you have pets. Make sure that the mattress protector you choose is waterproof and breathable, to avoid trapping any moisture which could damage your foam mattress over time.

6) Periodically strip your mattress and wash all of the sheets, blankets, and pillowcases that go with it. This is a more thorough way of cleaning than just vacuuming, but it's also more time-consuming.

7) Use baking soda to clean your foam mattress. Sprinkle some baking soda over the entire surface of the mattress and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then use a brush or broom to sweep it up and dispose

8) Once a month, use a cup of white distilled vinegar to one cup of water. Mop the solution onto your mattress and let it sit for 15 minutes before wiping away with a damp cloth or sponge.

9) Give your mattress some air by storing it out in the sun once every couple of months. UV rays can't penetrate through more than just a few layers of fabric, so putting it outside won't damage anything underneath-and will actually help to kill off any mold spores too!

If there are still stains left after doing all these things, consider having them professionally cleaned instead. There are many companies that offer mattress cleaning services, and it's usually pretty affordable too.
