Goodnight. We say this at the end of every day and then hop into bed. We have spent over 25% of our life sleeping. With that much of our life spent in bed, it makes sense that a clean, fresh, and comfortable mattress can go a long way toward mitigating stress and pressure and improving our health.
A good night's sleep starts with a good bed. Mattresses deserve proper care, just like our bodies and minds need great rest.
Did you ever clean your mattress? (I hope your answer is yes) If not, you are doing the dust mites a favor, letting them live and reproduce undisturbed. Mattresses accumulate dust mites and gather dust, skin oil, shed skin flakes, various bodily fluids, hair, and sweat. Added to that are indoor pollution, pet dander, and allergens. Your mattress is RIPE for a cleaning.

Note: You should clean your mattress every six months at least. However, we recommend doing it each season.
