Maintain the bedroom humidity and temperature low; don’t increase the temperature as this will     encourage dust mite growth. If possible, try to remove all pets or plants as this will help you eliminate dander and pollen that might interfere with your sleep and thus cause some issues.

 

Use a mattress protector. A good protector is basically an amazing barrier against the dust mites as they thrive based on the dead skin particles. Since the protectors are made out of waterproof materials, you will be able to keep it clean for a much longer period of time. Not only that, but you will be able to acquire quite a bit of comfort as well which is amazing in its own right.

 

Try to air the mattress outside if you have a bright sunny day. What this will do is it will help you naturally eliminate all signs of bacteria. If you can’t drag the mattress outside because it’s too heavy or you just have the time to do it, you can always open the windows and let some UV rays and fresh air kick in. This might be the best, simplest way to air your mattress and it’s not that demanding to begin with. You just need to give it a shot and results will be very well worth it.

 

Try to clean all signs of urine and any other stains. Most of the time you will need some dedicated chemical solutions but you can also opt for DIY stuff such as a combination of liquid dish soap and baking soda. These are great options that you should keep in mind as you might get some very good results this way.

 

If you want to clean your mattress properly, you should always keep in mind the age of your mattress as well. Sometimes your mattress might not be suitable for usage any more, and this is why you need to replace it properly. Most of the time a mattress will last for 8 years, but if you have a dirty mattress that just doesn’t get cleaned at all, you should consider purchasing a new one. If not, you can use the tips we mentioned above in order to perform maintenance for your current model!
