There's something about the start of a new year that increase the appetite for a really good clear out.
No matter how well you clean your home, you may be overlooking one important area that impacts your indoor air quality: your mattress.
Every night, our bodies make about half a litre of sweat and shed nearly a gram of skin. Your mattress can easily become home to fungal spores, bacteria, and dust mites that feed on your shed skin.
The average mattress is home to about 2 million dust mites. It's no surprise that without regular mattress cleaning, your mattress can be the dirtiest thing in your entire house.
We spend an average of one-third of our entire lives cosily snuggled up on our mattress so why is it so far down on our list of priorities when it comes to cleaning? Mattresses, just like every other part of your home, need to be regularly cleaned and properly maintained.
You probably are not aware about the quantities of dust mites and other harmful germs residing in your mattress, but the truth is there are millions of them feeding on the dead skin cells which flake of us continuously.
