How Often Should you be Getting your Mattress Cleaned?

Getting your mattress cleaned occasionally is important. It’s not something many people consider part of basic home cleaning, but it should be addressed. We spend about a third of our lives sleeping (25 years!) on our mattresses, so basic upkeep definitely needed. Here are some of the factors to consider when deciding how often you need to clean your mattress.



If you split your time between multiple homes or simply travel a lot, then your mattress will not get as much use as someone that lives in one place. Air BnB and other sites have led to many people getting extra income from renting rooms or apartments out. If your mattress is being frequently used by travelers, then you may want to have it cleaned more often to prevent things like bed bugs.


If your mattress starts exuding any unpleasant odors, then you should have it cleaned. Odors can be a sign of mold or mildew growing in your mattress which can occur from unattended spills. These problems significantly increase the chances that you will suffer respiratory and other allergy symptoms.

Major Spills Or Stains

Regardless of how well you watch them, it is possible that a child or pet makes a big mess on a mattress. Anytime this happens you may want to get your mattress professionally cleaned to prevent future issues such as mold, allergens, odors, and bacterial growth.

Allergy Symptoms

Dust mites and bed bugs are a big problem all over the place. Bed bugs can come into your home through a variety of ways. Those that work with a lot of people or travel often are at highest risk of getting these insects into their home. Symptoms of allergies to dust mites can include dry and itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, and other cold-like symptoms. Allergies that abate during the day and return when you come home are a definite sign that something in your home is contributing to your symptoms.

Standard Maintenance

Even if you have no symptoms of allergies and your mattress seems to smell okay, it is a good idea to get your mattress cleaned yearly to avoid any future problems. Mattress cleaning and furniture cleaning are important to maintaining a healthy home. Rentals that get a lot of tenants should be cleaned more often.
