Regular mattress cleaning is more important than ever before due to the modern day environment created by double glazing and central heating, and the resulting increase in dust mites, bacteria, viruses and other filthy residues in our beds can also increase health problems such as Asthma, Eczema, Hay Fever and allergies.
Your grandparents and possibly your parents, regularly dragged theirs out into the garden on a cold day and beat them for half an hour or more. They knew what was good for you! The cold killed the dust mites and the beating removed their excrement and other contaminants. But due to the weight and composition of the modern mattress, which makes them too heavy to carry outside, and the time pressure created by today’s hectic world, we don’t do that any more.
