To keep your mattress clean and healthy, you should vacuum it at least once a week. Additionally, you should use a damp cloth to wipe the bed's surface every day or two for easy dust-removal. You can also apply some baking soda or hydrogen peroxide before putting on fresh sheets so that stains are removed from previous sheet additions. If there is an odor in your mattress, try using baking soda with vinegar poured over the entire area. The vinegar will kill the odor and baking soda neutralizes it. If your mattress is in need of cleaning, but you cannot do it yourself, then contact a professional company for help. When you have an older or more delicate-feeling mattress that needs to be washed after every two weeks instead of weekly, choose a vinegar solution rather than one with detergent added into it because doing so allows the natural fibers to remain intact while being cleaned.
How do you clean a mattress with hydrogen peroxide?
To use hydrogen peroxide to clean your mattress, you would need to dilute the liquid in water and then soak the fabric of the bed in it for about half an hour before rinsing out. Follow this process twice more if needed, but be aware that this will result in some staining on your sheets or clothes. The good thing about this method is that it will kill any kind of bacteria and fungi present on your mattress, but be aware that you might damage the fabric if done too much. To get rid of stains from urine, you would need to mix some hydrogen peroxide with salt (sodium chloride or table salt). You can use 1 tsp of powder in a cup filled with water; another option is using 2 tbsp worth of baking soda mixed with 4 drops (1/8th) concentrated liquid. If necessary for heavy stains, add more solution and let it stay overnight before washing out. For light-colored fabrics like microfiber or polyester sheets: Add half a teaspoonful into 1 gallon hot water; let sit for 10 minutes then wash as usual.
What is the best way to deep clean a mattress?
The best way to deep-clean your mattresses is using laundry detergent mixed with borax powder at around 1/5th of what you usually use according as well as chlorine bleach diluted down with water at 8 parts chlorine bleach too 10 parts water. The enzyme cleaner is probably the most effective way to clean a mattress. You can also use baking soda or vinegar mixed with water in 1/4th of what you usually use, but if your sleeping surface has been stained by blood from menstruation , please do not try them on it!

How long does it take to deep clean a mattress?
First, remove your bedding from the mattress and set it aside for washing or dry-cleaning. You should then fill a bucket with warm water and add some soap if you wish (or leave your covers inside on top of the mattress). You can use hydrogen peroxide in place of soap if you want to keep things really simple. Pour about four drops into a bowl or glass, stir until bubbling stops before dumping the solution onto the surface of one side of your bedding/mattress cover. Allow this treatment - which will kill dust mites - to sit for 30 minutes while agitating every 10 minutes by hand so that all surfaces are exposed evenly during this time period. After half an hour has passed pour off excess liquid using another bowl/glass, replace lid tightly before placing away somewhere safe where children won't reach them yet still close enough that they'll be handy when needed again later on at least once more before moving them out to be washed properly according as above instructions. The liquid will now be free of dust mites and their eggs, so no harm done. Wash the liquid off your mattress with a good quality anti-bacterial liquid detergent (or just water if you're lazy). Rinse thoroughly then vacuum away any remaining residue before putting everything back into place for storage or use as required. For those that don't want to do this themselves: For basic dry cleaning there is nothing more than a normal bucket can handle; even used ones should work well enough - make sure they are big enough though due to the size of mattresses! You'll also need 2 packs of duvets/bedding blankets which still have plenty left in them; one pack per cleanable bed sheet (and possibly another small blanket alongside each pair) and possibly an old towel but not much else really unless it's necessary: these might take up some space depending on how many sheets you've got plus pillows etc., but overall smaller amounts would be better since we only need 3 beds rather than 4 at once otherwise things won't fit all together comfortably. If choosing between duvet covers or pillow cases consider making both out from scratch instead however as they weigh less and cost little money either way too save time... No matter what timescale you decide upon try to remember to empty your bins regularly so that waste doesn't pile up over time either forming odours/moulds inside the house, especially during hot summer months when humidity levels rise dramatically!
