If you do not clean your mattress on a regular basis it will accumulate all sorts of disgusting things on it. Today Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning is going to talk about some of the nasty things that are probably piling up on your mattress as your read this article.
Yellow Sweat Stains on Mattress
Every single your day produces sweat. Studies report that humans produce up to 26 gallons of sweat while you are sleeping each and every year. If you share your bed with someone else you could have up to 52 gallons of sweat produced on your mattress every 365 days. Combine this sweat with your body heat and you have the perfect environment for fungi and bacteria to grow. No one wants fungi and bacteria growing in their bed!
Dead Skin Buildup in Mattress
In addition to producing sweat each and every day, your body sheds skin cells each and every day. It is estimated that your body sheds about 500 million skin cell per day. As you are sleeping these skin cells slough off of your body and onto your mattress. Microbes on your mattress use these dead skins cells as their source of nutrition.
Toxic Chemicals in Mattress
There are many different types of chemicals that may have found their way onto your mattress. Your mattress, sheets, comforters, and pillows all have chemicals on them. These chemicals can be harmful to your health.
