Do you think it’s important to keep your mattress clean?

The majority of doctors and allergist think so. Unfortunately mattresses are often overlooked because they are out of site and out of mind. Mattresses are the forgotten necessity of sleep and good health. People don’t buy new ones until a spring pokes them in the rump or it has more craters in its surface than the earth’s moon. So why would cleaning mattresses be any different? Well it’s not and we all need to keep our mattress clean as possible for a safer and healthier sleep environment throughout the life of our bed.
