Getting a good night’s sleep is so important. Unwinding in bed at night has to be the most relaxing part of the day, and a great sleep can significantly improve both your physical and mental health.

No one likes to think of creepy crawlies in their bed, but the reality is without effective mattress sanitisation your bed is at risk of harbouring bed bugs, dust mites, and more.

  • Germs
  • Dust mites

How to clean your mattress

Household vacuums are great at removing hair, skin cells, dust, and small dirt particles. While an upholstery-specific attachment can help, standard vacuums cannot sanitise or complete a deep clean on their own.

Steam clean

Powerful steam clean equipment is a fantastic way to sanitise your mattress, as long as the weather is warm enough for it to dry within a day, preventing mould or mildew from forming. 

Professional mattress cleaners use top-quality steam cleaners that can reach all nooks and crannies, as well as ensure the mattress dries quickly.

Stain removal
