Backcare Beds - Cleaning a Pocket Spring Mattress | The easy way!

Mattresses are one of the most important investments we make in our homes, and they play a crucial role in ensuring we get a good night's sleep. But let's be honest; they can also be a magnet for dirt, sweat, and stains. Backcare pocket spring mattresses were designed for comfort and support, but we also made sure to use a durable topper fabric that's easy to clean. In this blog post, we will look into the specifics of cleaning pocket spring mattresses and how to get rid of those pesky stains that seem to pop up out of nowhere. So, grab your cleaning supplies and let's get started!

How to clean mattress stains in a few easy steps

Before we get into specific stain removal techniques, let's review some basic cleaning steps for your Mattress. First remove all the sheets, blankets, and pillows. Next, vacuum the entire mattress surface to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. If you have lingering odours, sprinkle some baking soda over the surface and let it sit for a few hours before vacuuming it up. Now let's get into more specific stain removal.

Perspiration stains

We all sweat in our sleep, but that doesn't mean we have to live with perspiration stains on our mattresses. To remove these stains, mix together equal parts hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and water. Apply the mixture to the stain and let it sit for 30 minutes before blotting it up with a clean, damp cloth. 

Blood stains

If you've ever woken up to find a blood stain on your Mattress, you know how frustrating it can be to remove it. First, blot the stain with a clean, damp cloth to remove as much blood as possible. Then, mix a tablespoon of salt and a cup of cold water and apply the mixture to the stain. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes before blotting it up with a clean cloth.

Urine stains

If you have young children or pets, you may have to deal with urine stains on your Mattress from time to time. But simply cleaning the surface of the Mattress may not be enough to remove the stain and the lingering odour altogether. Using an enzyme-based cleaning solution is best to permanently remove the acid, odour, and bacteria and properly clean urine from mattress fabric and bedding. Enzyme cleaners break down the proteins in the urine, eliminating the stain and unpleasant smells. Follow the instructions on the cleaner and let it sit for the recommended amount of time before blotting it up with a clean, damp cloth. With a little patience and the right cleaning solution, you can say goodbye to urine stains for good!

Cleaning your Mattress doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a few simple steps and some basic stain removal techniques, you can keep your Mattress looking and feeling fresh for years to come. So go ahead, enjoy that coffee in bed and rest easy knowing you have the tools to keep your Mattress clean and comfortable.

Mattress Protection

Now that we know how to remove pesky stains from your Mattress, let's talk about preventing them in the first place! The best way to keep your Mattress clean and free of stains is by using a good quality mattress protector. Not just any old protector will do - opt for a dust mite and waterproof one for maximum protection.

A good quality mattress protector helps prevent stains and keeps your Mattress safe from allergens, dust mites, and even bed bugs. Plus, it's much easier to wash a mattress protector than it is to clean your entire Mattress. So, it's a win-win situation!
