Dirty mattresses don’t only house dirt and grime. Dust mites are other unwanted guests in our beds. They are known to contribute to various health issues, including allergies and asthma. Knowing this brings you to the realization of why keeping your mattress clean is important for hygiene and health.
If you have pets that play or sleep in your bed, many harmful residue and microorganisms that are collected from outside can get into your mattress. In addition to these new visitors, your mattress is already a habitat for dust mites, which are tiny spider-like microscopic bugs that feed on dead skin flakes. They themselves aren’t harmful, but up to 30 percent of people are allergic to their waste products.
