It might not seem like it, but your mattress is one of your most important possessions. Your mattress affects your sleep, which in turn affects nearly every aspect of your life. A quality mattress is also a significant investment – and one you’ll want to protect. That means learning how to clean a mattress, and how to maintain it, can help you get the most bang for your buck.

If left unchecked, your mattress can accumulate dead skin, dust mites, dirt, and a whole lot more. Regular mattress cleaning is important to extend the lifespan of your bed, and also to reduce allergies. Fortunately, cleaning a mattress doesn’t need to be complex. Keep reading to learn how to clean a mattress properly.



First and foremost, you’ll want to completely strip the bed and wash the sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Check the label on your pillows to see if they are machine washable. Ideally, you’ll want to wash bedding in hot water in order to get rid of dust mites, but it’s important to follow the recommended care instructions to avoid potential shrinkage or fading. We recommend washing sheets weekly to help keep your mattress clean.



Secondly, the best way to clean a mattress depends on how dirty it is and what stains are present. The technique for routine mattress cleaning will be different from the technique used to remove a spill or stain. You’ll want to closely check your mattress for stains, discoloration, smells, and other signs that will indicate that a specific area will need extra attention. When it comes to using soaps and cleaning products on your mattress, it’s important to be careful. You don’t want to use anything too harsh that could damage the delicate fabric of your mattress. Also, keep in mind that it’s difficult to completely remove detergents from a mattress, so you may wish to choose products with a mild scent. We suggest using baking soda, any type of all-natural, bleach free and unscented cleansers or detergents.



And now the most important step, vacuum your mattress! We recommend using the HYLA EST, as it’s a powerful and versatile system that can deep clean anything. Using the upholstery attachment, clean the entire surface of the mattress. Make sure to vacuum the sides of the bed to remove dust and stretch the fabric to remove debris from seams.

When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.



The cleaning power of water is truly underestimated, but the HYLA takes full advantage of its capabilities to ensure your home feels as fresh inside as it can be outside. No filters necessary, as the water acts as its OWN filter, and the unique DEFENDER Separator Technology safely and naturally eliminates the dust and other harmful particles. Don’t settle for less than what you and your home deserve!
