Tempur-Pedic mattresses are known for their memory foam which is design that conforms to the shape of your body when they’re sleeping in bed. They’re durable and high-quality, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to be cleaned. Like any other kind of mattress without a mattress protector, your Tempur-Pedic mattress can become dirty with time and use.
Many aren’t sure of how to clean their Tempur-Pedic mattress correctly. Below we are going to talk you through the correct way to clean a Tempur-pedic mattress so keep reading to find out more:
Making a Cleaning Solution
The first thing you need to do is create the cleaning solution that you’ll use to clean your Tempur-Pedic mattress. You first combine 3 cups of warm water with a cup of laundry detergent. Wear cleaning gloves while mixing it all together in order to keep your hands dry.
When the mixture has blended well together, you need to transfer it into a spray bottle so that it’s easy to use later on in the process. Once the cleaning solution is in the spray bottle, you should give it a gentle shake to ensure it’s all still mixed up before you use it. You can then remove the linen from your mattress as that won’t be cleaned as part of this cleaning process.
Cleaning the Foam Material
Now it’s time to start with the actual cleaning process. You should start by spraying the cleaning solution onto the mattress without letting the mixture soak in. You can do this by immediately dabbing the foam material with a sponge. Doing so will remove dust, dirt and stains that are present on the surface of the material.
If you’re looking to clean heavier stains that are present on the mattress, you can let the mixture soak into that particular spot where the stain is located for around 3 minutes. After that, you can repeatedly blot the stain with the sponge. You should then use a damp cloth to wipe down the foam mattress and remove residual soap before drying it with a towel.
It’s sometimes necessary to remove odors from the mattress. This is something that won’t necessarily happen by using the cleaning methods above, although it might help. You can remove odors by sprinkling baking soda on the mattress and letting it sit there for around 5 minutes.
You can then remove the baking soda when it’s had the chance to work its magic on your mattress. This is done by using a vacuum cleaner or something similar to suck up the baking soda from your mattress. When you’ve done that, those odors should be gone.
It’s important to clean your Tempur-Pedic mattress properly if you want to get the most out of it and keep your sleeping area hygienic. There are lots of people who don’t do this or don’t do it correctly, but now you’re armed with the information you need, you should have no problem keeping your Tempur-Pedic mattress clean.
