Mattresses can easily become storage for dust mites, dirt, mold, fungus, dead skin, and many more things that can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms if left unchecked.

Here are some tips on how to take care of your mattress and keep your mattress healthy and durable.
To start with, wash sheets, mattress covers and pillowcases for hygiene reasons, as sweat, body oils and dirt naturally accumulate and penetrate deep into the mattress over time if not cleaned regularly.
Ideally, wash bedding in hot water to remove dust mites. Pillows can also be washed, depending on their type (follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully).
In general, wash sheets and pillowcases weekly or more often if pets are sleeping in your bed too. People who live in warmer climates or those with seasonal allergies may also require more frequent washing during certain times of the year.
However, items that do not come in close contact with sleeping people need less frequent washing. Therefore, wash your duvets and blankets once every 2-3 months, pillows every 4-6 months, and duvet covers every 1-2 times a month.
Vacuum the mattress
Using the vacuum cleaner's upholstery attachment, gently vacuum the mattress surface, including the sides and seams, to remove every last drop of hidden dirt and dust.
Make sure to vacuum under the bed as well. Turn the mattress over, if it is double-sided; With a one-sided mattress, turn it from head to toe and vacuum both sides.
