How to Clean a Mattress and Remove Mould

A valued client was in contact with us recently with concerns regarding her very expensive custom made mattress. There was a visible mould issue upon our technician’s inspection and our client was advised the mattress needed to be brought into our factory in Murarrie for intense cleaning.

How to Clean a Mattress Professionally

Upon its arrival to our factory our lead technician begin the cleaning process right away. This began by using a unique upholstery tool to pre-vacuum the mattress to remove up to 80% of the dry soiling from the mattress. With a spraying bottle the appropriate solution is then applied to the mattress from top to toe to both condition the fabric and to start breaking down any soiling.

The agitation process is a key part to the cleaning process as it loosens the soiling and brings it to the surface for up to a 50% cleaner mattress. Our steam extraction tool was then used to extract soil and detergents from the fibres. This tool works using dual action by both applying high pressure steam and extracting the dirty residue simultaneously. Our unique mould remover was then applied using a spraying action to the affected areas and left to sit for half an hour to start breaking down the mould. The steam extraction process was then repeated to ensure all chemical residue was removed. Sometimes, depending on the condition of the mattress, these steps can be repeated up to three times to obtain the best results.

Our technician then applied a deodorising and neutralising solution to the mattress to leave no sticky residue and leave it smelling fresh. Finally the mattress was surrounded by high speed air movers so that when our client collected the mattress it was left perfectly dry and ready to use.

The cleaning of your mattress should happen a minimum of once every 2 years to eradicate any form of mould or allergy prone nasties like bed bugs, dust mites, dust mite faeces, dead skin, hair and fungal spores just to name a few.
