How Well Are You Maintaining Your Mattress?
Avoid mites and bedbugs with these three easy tips
What's the one thing that you look forward to after a long and tiring day? We're sure that a relaxing sleep is on top of your list! Aside from adding many pillows and changing the sheets regularly, you also need to maintain your mattress! Let these easy must-dos help and guide you:
Buy a mattress protector
Having a mattress protector is ideal as it won't expose your mattress to dust and dirt. You can easily wash it as well.
Vacuum your mattress
Even if it’s covered in a mattress protector, vacuum your mattress periodically with a brush attachment to get rid of accumulated dirt, pet hairs (if you let your pet climb in bed), or crumbs (if you eat snacks on your bed). This can also help lessen the allergens in your bedroom.

Sanitize your mattress
Mites, bedbugs, and bacteria accumulate on your mattress as it comes in contact with sweat and dead skin cells. Call a professional mattress cleaning service like My Clean Bed, which uses steam and UV rays to sanitize your mattress and make it more comfy and hygienic.
