Time to Tackle Mattresses Cleaning in Vancouver

February 12th, 2018 | by Angelo |    0   

Freshening up a bed sometimes takes more than a clean set of sheets. Mattresses are a haven for dust mites, mould, and other allergens—and this doesn’t even account for spills and staining. When a fresh set of sheets just isn’t cutting it, mattress cleaning might be the key to resting easier.

As a professional rug and carpet cleaning company, the team at Angelo’s FabriClean regularly handles mattress cleaning in Vancouver. Aside from dust mites, the team uses deep steam cleaning technology to purge your mattress of sweat, blood, and other bodily fluids, which can trigger mould growth.

To prepare for a professional mattress cleaning service, strip the bed and wash the sheets, duvet, and any blankets or pillows. Vacuum the mattress, beginning at the top and working down in overlapping strips. If the bed smells musty, sprinkle the mattress with baking soda and rub it in with a scrub brush—you can also request your cleaner to deodorize the mattress.

When the technician arrives, point out any stains or areas that need extra care. A DIY treatment for dried blood is a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and table salt in a 4-1-1 ratio. Spread it on the stain and allow it to sit until it dries, then scrape off. Dab whatever’s left over with a clean white rag dipped in hydrogen peroxide.

For urine, try a 5-1 ratio mix of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, along with a drop or two of dish soap. Dab this on the spot. Wait until it’s dry, and if the stain is still there, mix a 3-1 ratio of dry laundry powder and water (but not Oxiclean or anything like it). Work it into a dry foam and spread on the stain. Let it sit for a half hour or so and scrape away the dry paste. Then use a white cloth dipped in hydrogen peroxide to remove anything left over.

Remember, even if you vacuum and clean your mattress regularly, it’s always advisable to periodically call-in a professional mattress cleaner who can provide a deep cleaning service thanks to professional equipment and solvents.
