How do you properly clean a mattress? Everett mattress experts weigh in

If you don’t have a mattress protector, your mattress should ideally be cleaned every six months. While it may be tempting to haul it outside and hose it off, you may want to think again before you get your mattress wet.

“If there is any hint of liquid on the mattress, then the warranty is voided by the manufacturer,” says Josh Rigsby of E.S.C. Mattress Center. “A lot of people think that the companies look for the most minute stain so they can void the warranty.”

Protect your invest and sleep soundly!

That’s why E.S.C. preaches the need of a mattress protector — to the point that they give you 12 months to try the bed if it’s $699 or over and purchased with a mattress protector, or 90 days if not purchased with a protector.

“The reason is; if the protector fails, a professional steam-cleaner team needs to be sent out to clean the bed; and if it fails warranty because of a stain not coming out, they will then replace the mattress,” Rigsby says. “Protectors are far and away our number-one recommended accessory and we recommend them to every guest, no matter what.”

If you want to avoid having to clean your mattress, mattress protectors are a great place to start, but you should also wash your sheets often, and avoid eating in the bed.

Sheets, blankets, and pillowcases also absorb some of the dirt and oils that we give off when we sleep at night, which is why it’s critical to wash the sheets — and your mattress protector — regularly. One study found that unwashed pillowcases and sheets had up to 39 times more bacteria than pet-food bowls and several thousand times more bacteria than a toilet seat.

“When we do delivery, we can tell when a guest had a protector or not,” Rigsby says. “Beds without protectors are gross.”

No one likes cleaning their mattress, so if you take preemptive steps to protect it, you can sleep soundly knowing your mattress is fresh and clean.
