We invest a lot of money in our bed to make it as comfortable and enjoyable as possible – after all, we spend up to a third of the day in bed. The mattress is one of the most important elements of bedding. We lay down here night after night. The mattress has to withstand a fair amount of punishment and "staining" of various kinds inevitably occurs. In order to feel comfortable in bed and enjoy the mattress for a long time, proper care and cleaning of the mattress is important..
Aids for cleaning a mattress
A soft brush is ideal for regularly brushing the mattress surface and for removing stains. Cleaning a mattress with a vacuum cleaner is also very popular. However, improper use of the vacuum cleaner can result in damage to the upholstery and lining of the mattress (e.g. shifting of the filling, pilling and the like). Use your vacuum cleaner only in conjunction with special upholstery nozzles and reduced suction power. Some manufacturers also offer special anti-mite vacuum cleaner attachments especially for allergy sufferers. Again, you should be careful not to subject the mattress surface to excessive suction power.
You should refrain from using a carpet beater. This cleaning utensil is totally unsuitable and should not be used for mattress care.
Turn and flip over the mattress
In order to ensure uniform usage and body adaptation of the mattress, we recommend flipping the mattress over regularly. Flip over a new mattress approx. once a month in the first year to ensure that the body weight is evenly distributed. As a result, both mattress sides can be evenly integrated and used. Thereafter, the mattress should be flipped over at least four to six times a year.
Additional protection and greater hygiene
Additional protection and greater hygiene Using a bed sheet or fitted sheet is a matter of course for all of us. For additional mattress protection, there are also wonderfully comfortable mattress toppers.
Particularly popular is the absorbent or moisture-absorbing Molton topper, but also toppers made of natural materials such as down, cashmere/silk, camel hair or cotton provide a wonderfully soft feeling and extra protection for your mattress.
How to remove stains from the mattress
Stains can end up on a mattress in numerous ways. They should be treated with a suitable stain remover as soon as possible – the fresher the stain is, the easier it is to remove. In order to avoid water marks, it is advisable to work from the outside to the middle. Dab the stain gently with a sponge or absorbent paper and ensure good ventilation. Make sure that the mattress does not get too damp. If you are unsure whether you can clean your mattress with one or the other cleaning product, please ask your specialist dealer.
