Unique tips for mattress care

Before buying a mattress, pay attention to the following points, which will further help you make it easier to care for it. Buy a mattress with your bed. The spring bed frame must match the mattress to provide proper support. In some cases, a spring frame that does not match the mattress may void the warranty, damage the mattress, unsatisfactory performance and reduce the life of the mattress. If you buy a mattress separately, then remember that it must have good support. Use a sturdy bed frame. If your mattress is full or king size, make sure your frame has adequate center support to prevent sagging or breaking. Get a thin mattress to provide effective protection and extend the life of your main mattress. A thin mattress makes the bed more hygienic and easy to make. The thin mattress can be ventilated and easily turned over for even wear and long life. Use a mattress topper. The washable mattress topper will keep your bed clean. And a waterproof mattress pad is a good idea if you have small children or pets in the house. The mattress, as a rule, is hidden under the bed linen, and therefore, during the cleaning of the apartment, it is often left unattended. However, it is important to remember that with regular use, the mattress becomes an ideal habitat for a variety of microorganisms that feed on the scales of human skin and multiply rapidly in a humid and warm environment, and therefore needs regular cleaning. The easiest and most effective way to solve the problem is to place your mattress in the hands of specialists. There are many mattress dry cleaning companies in any major city, some of which provide these services at home. However, depending on the complexity of the problem, you can often remove stains and get rid of the smell yourself, using special cleaning agents or natural products.

Ventilate the mattress once every 3 months and turn it over at the same frequency, alternating not only both sides, but also top and bottom. We also recommend that you turn the mattress every two weeks in the first three months after purchase, and then once every 2-3 months. This will ensure uniform wear and prolong the life of the mattress. Let the mattress breathe. If you smell a “new product”, leave the mattress and box spring open and well ventilated. This new aroma of the product will pass over time when exposed to fresh air. Vacuuming will help get rid of dust and microorganisms. However, keep in mind that if you are allergic or have pets, you will need to vacuum the mattress much more often. You can also clean the mattress well with a steam generator, after which the mattress should be well dried. However, if there is a prohibition on such cleaning in the instructions of the mattress, then it will have to be abandoned. Owners of air mattresses sometimes face such a problem as the formation of holes in this very mattress. In order to glue such a hole, you must first degrease the area to be treated with acetone or gasoline, and then put a patch using rubber or silicate glue. When everything is ready, the repaired place needs to be held under pressure for several hours. You can also fix the patch with Moment glue. As a rule, these patches come with the mattress, or they can be purchased separately. If a stain appears on the mattress, use a mild soap and cold water solution or upholstery shampoo. There should be as little water as possible - the mattress should not be wetted too much. After beating the lather, gently apply it to the stain and rub. Do not dry clean the mattress. The chemicals in dry cleaners or stain removers can be harmful to fabrics or base materials, and can also have a negative impact on health. To remove stains, you can use some folk remedies. Remember that the easiest way is to remove the stain that has just appeared, so if you notice that the mattress is dirty, do not hesitate to clean it.

In order to remove not yet dried stains from coffee, sweat, blood and urine, you need to moisten them a little with soda water, sprinkle with salt and leave for several hours. Soon, the salt will begin to change color, which means that it absorbs the stain. Salt mixed with lemon juice to the consistency of a paste will help get rid of stains. This paste should be applied to the stain for 30-60 minutes. 

Then wipe off the paste with a dry brush and blot the required area of the mattress with a sponge soaked in cool water. If it was not possible to completely remove the stain from the first time, then the procedure can be repeated. You can also remove the stain from the mattress with borax or boric acid. To do this, you need to mix the powder with water to get a pasty mass. Then rub this paste into the stain, leave to dry for about an hour, then shake off with a dry brush. Then rub the spot where the stain was with a sponge slightly moistened with soapy water, then remove the solution with a wet rag and wipe the place with a dry towel. Blood stains (even old ones) are removed by hydrogen peroxide. You need to moisten a sponge or a piece of cotton wool with peroxide and blot the stain with it until it disappears. Then wipe the area to be treated with a sponge soaked in cold water. If you stain your mattress with iodine, there are several ways to get rid of the stain. It can be wiped with a sponge dipped in ammonia, and then treated with a wet cloth. You can make a thick gruel from starch and water, apply it to the stain and when it turns blue, rinse it off with a sponge soaked in warm water. If necessary, repeat the procedure again, then wipe the place with a sponge with soapy water, and then with a sponge moistened with clean water. Alternatively, you can simply rub the stain with a cut of fresh potatoes. Sometimes insects can start in the mattress, in this case, the most effective method of struggle will be contacting the disinfection service. Do not remove the shortcut. Contrary to popular belief, it is not prohibited to remove the tag, but the information on the tag will serve as a means of identifying the mattress warranty. Do not bend, fold, stretch, or throw the mattress. Do not jump or walk on the mattress. Jumping or walking can damage internal components and possibly harm you in further use. By following all these rules, you will enjoy relaxing on your mattress for many years. After all, if you handle the mattress well, he will certainly reciprocate you. Most mattresses absorb moisture easily and do not dry out for a long time, creating an environment conducive to mold growth. People living in cool, humid climates or poorly ventilated areas often face the problem of rotten smell in the bedroom. It should be noted that the formation of mold in the mattress poses a serious threat to your health, so the most reliable way to solve the gaps is to replace the mattress with a new one. If you do decide to fight mold at home, try soaking the mattress with a bleach solution, then dry it thoroughly in the sun. Many of the above procedures can be avoided by following a few simple rules. First of all, remember that the mattress is designed for rest and sleep, so do not eat or drink in bed. Special waterproof covers will help protect your mattress from moisture and make regular cleaning easier, especially in the nursery.
