Despite the fact that we may spend up to a third of our lives
stretched out on one, the mattress is one of the most underrated pieces of furniture in the home.

When you need to clean a mattress, remember the following tips:

* Never soak a mattress, as it will not dry inside, leading to a breeding ground for mildew inside, which will be near impossible
to get rid of.

• Stains should be removed by using a mild soap and cold water, and by dabbing and rubbing very lightly.

• Once the stain has been removed, sprinkle some baking soda over the area to absorb the remaining moisture and get rid of any odours.

• Leave it on for a good few hours before vacuuming the powder up.
A blessing in accommodation establishments, is that sheets are washed regularly.
This is crucial in preventing dust mites, dead skin and other allergens from getting to the mattress in the first place.
Finally, it’s up to your housekeeping staff to give the mattress a good vacuum each time they flip or rotate it.
Flipping and rotating a mattress
The life of a new mattress can be extended by following a regular maintenance routine.
Firstly, any new mattress should be installed and placed upon a sturdy base that fits the mattress perfectly, as this will prevent sagging.
A mattress should be carried on its side as it is less likely to be damaged and should never be bent, as the inner springs
may be compromised.
Most manufacturers agree that flipping and rotating is the most important way to prolong the life a new mattress. This will break it in evenly, and ensure that the springs react evenly all over. Also note that there are now mattresses on the market that do not require “flipping” or “turning” – all they need is a quick twist or rotation once a month.
