Mattress Cleaning For Your Health

What's In Your Mattress?


 It has been said that the average person spends between 7 and 8 hours in bed each day. That equates to almost 3,000 hours per year; yet, very few of us are having our mattress professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Most people just don't think about it. We have too much to do as it is.

You wash your sheets and pillow cases on a regular basis. You often wash your blankets and your pillow, as well. That's enough, right?  NO.

Not having a clean mattress means that dirt, bacteria, sweat, dust mites, body oil, dead skin cells, bodily fluids, fungus, pet dander, and bugs may be sharing your bed with you. There are reports that claim a mattress doubles in weight every ten years due to the accumulation of these items.

A good night's sleep is considered a major factor for a healthy lifestyle.

It is crucial that the most advantageous conditions are maintained for a high quality rest.

Although comfort is critical for achieving a good night’s sleep, so is hygiene. 

How Often Do You Clean Your Mattress?

The fastest and easiest way of improving the quality of air you breathe while sleeping is to have your mattress professionally cleaned regularly. 

How often?  There are experts who say cleaning a mattress once per year is sufficient, while others say a minimum cleaning of once every six months is needed to maintain a healthy sleeping area.

If your mattress is seven years old or older, you may benefit from skipping the professional mattress cleaning and consider purchasing a new mattress. I say this because studies have shown that most mattresses have a life span of only 8-10 years.

For Your Health


Studies show that a good night's sleep is extremely important for your health. Good sleep is as crucial as exercising and eating healthy .

Sleep works with the mending and improving of your heart and blood vessels. Constant sleep deficiency is associated with high blood pressure, kidney disease, increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. 

Sleep triggers the shift in your brain that strengthens remembrance and awareness. It does this by way of strengthening relations between brain cells and relocating data from one brain region to another. 

The amazing effects of a good night's sleep are shown in your daily life. You will notice increased productivity, creativity, and memory.

So, DON'T FORGET to schedule your mattress cleaning.

Cleaning Your Mattress For Your Health

Not all stains can be 100% removed from the delicate materials used to manufacture mattresses.

However, our mattress cleaning service includes the use of an herbal, green certified, medical-grade disinfectant (Benefect).

This allows Chem-Dry of San Angelo to remove the harmful bacteria and any agent

that can contribute to the growth of dust mites, fecal remains, or even bed bugs.

Used in co-ordination with our powerful cleaning equipment and experienced technicians,

you can rest assured that you have a clean and sanitized mattress. So what are you waiting for?

We spend a third of our lives sleeping yet we rarely think of the million dust mites

that can inhabit a single mattress or the soil that lurks beneath the surface of our bedding.

Dust mites are tiny pests (invisible to the naked eye) that have the tendency to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.

Our Mattress Cleaning Service specializes in reducing and controlling dust mite populations.

Having your mattress professionally deep cleaned can make a significant impact on your health and that of your family.

To help extend the life of your expensive investment, flip or rotate your mattress.

For conventional mattresses that don’t have a designated top and bottom,

turn the mattress over so you're sleeping on the other side.

For mattresses that do have a designated top and bottom, rotate the mattress 180 degrees.

This will ensure even wear over the surface of the mattress.

You should flip or rotate your mattress every three to six months to ensure even wear.

The seldom-used living room sofa probably feels the bristle of a vacuum brush more often than your trusty mattress.

It’s time to change that. Besides promoting a more pleasant and productive night's sleep,

a professionally cleaned, cared for mattress can last longer—and it might even help prevent nasty,

not to mention costly, pest infestations.

Dust Mite Allergen and Asthma in the US

Children and asthma.

The preponderance of asthma in America has continually inflated since 1980.

This growth in numbers has often been associated with the amount of time we are indoors increasing by as much as 90%.

This has led to numerous conclusions linking indoor air quality and its part in those suffering from asthma. 


Our children’s immune systems are in the early stages of development when they are young.

This is a time when children are most helpless to attacks. This is known to be one of the chief causes of asthma.

This is why we say that the cleanliness of a child’s mattress is critical during a small child's developmental stages. 

A great deal of analysis by research teams indicates children that sleep on older mattresses

during the first year of their life are more vulnerable to developing breathing ailments such as asthma. 

One study conducted by New Zealand's largest university, The University of Auckland, stated that wheezing at ages 3-1/2 & 7

years of age was more prevalent in the kids who had slept on a used mattress for the first year of their life. They further went to say that the prevalence of asthma found in 3-1/2 year old children was 23.8% and those at 7 years of age, asthma was found in 18.1% of the children studied.

We find ourselves spending a lot of time in bed.

Has any of us truly thought about the health implications our mattress has on us? 

We spend upwards of three thousand hours each year laying on our mattresses.

That's almost 11 million seconds per year for your body to breathe in bacteria and contaminates!

The University of Auckland's study concluded that their study of 871 children made the novel observation

that sleeping on a used/dirty mattress in the first year of life was a risk factor for wheezing at 3-1/2 and 7 years of age. 

Now, if you decide to begin using a mattress cover, it is very crucial that your mattress is properly cleaned

before you enclose it in a cover. If this is not done, you will be trapping all of the dust mites,

allergens, dirt, and germs inside the mattress cover. 

There are several articles in Reuters Health and a few other sources which site studies from

Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The research finds costly mattress covers make zero difference in reducing dust mite allergies or their symptoms.

The articles continue stating that doctors still recommend costly mattress covers and pillow covers,

despite the absence of evidence they relieve the problem.

Do some research. Ask questions. At Chem-Dry of San Angelo, we want you to feel as safe as possible while enjoying 

a healthier night of sleep in your cleaned and sanitized bed. Remember this; It is essential to visit with an

allergist to determine what allergies you may have. This will allow your allergist to create a treatment plan

to help you with all of your allergies. 

If you are unsure who to visit, know that an allergist is a medical physician specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma

and other allergic diseases. They will have been trained to identify the causes that set off asthma or allergies. 

Allergists are doctors who help people, just like you and me, treat or prevent their allergy problems.
