Everyone would like to sleep well at night and wake up feeling refreshed. However, one of the factors which affects the quality of sleep is the condition of the bed. If a person finds that he is not sleeping well, then there might be a problem with the bed. In some cases bed cleaning is the solution, but in a few cases, bed replacement is necessary. Most families are opting to hire professional bed cleaning services in Singapore. We will discuss the reasons when you should do bed cleaning or bed replacement. 


Signs To Clean Your Bed


The mattress is the most important part of a bed, and the terms mattress and bed are often used interchangeably. Mattresses are known to be expensive, and if a new mattress that is only a few years old is dirty or stained, then there are several ways to clean your mattress or bed. There are some cases wherein the user is not able to sleep due to the foul smell caused by mold or dirt. Although the mattress is firm and shows no sign of deformation, the bed should be cleaned as well to remove the smell.

While sleeping on the mattress, dead skin exfoliates, and the dust mites which feed on the dead skin will multiply rapidly. Dust mites will make the bed dirty, cause allergies, and respiratory problems – these are the consequences homeowners face if bed cleaning is not done. Therefore, to prevent health problems such as sneezing, coughing, itching, and rashes, then bed cleaning is important. Sweat, urine, or other liquids can cause stains on the bed, and even unpleasant odors. If stains or odors are noticed, you should hire professional bed cleaning services.


Signs For A Bed Replacement


The life of a bed will depend on several factors, such as the type of bed, how often the bed is used, weight of the person using the bed, and whether the bed is well maintained. Inner springs and foam of the bed are designed to last for 5 to 8 years. On the other hand, latex mattresses can be used for a longer time, often up to 12 years if properly maintained. Therefore, if you want to know how to maintain your bed for a long time, you should purchase a high-quality bed, and only use it for sleeping or resting. Children must also avoid jumping and playing on the bed. 

Bed experts recommend that mattresses which are more than 8 years old should be replaced. In some cases, you could see visible damages in bed such as broken springs, torn bed covering, holes in the bed cover, and cracked or damaged foam. If the springs of the bed are noisy, then it should be replaced. There are also some cases wherein the bed may be infested with pests like dust mites or bed bugs, and even if you follow the guide to DIY bed cleaning at home it will not not eliminate the pest. Therefore, replacing the bed is the best solution. If the user is suffering from allergies and other problems, instead of bed cleaning, bed replacement is a better option. 


Call Professional Bed Cleaning Services


If the mattress is less than 5 years old, it is better to hire a professional bed cleaning service. Although before hiring, there are points to consider before engaging a professional bed cleaning service. Proper bed cleaning will get rid of 99% of the dirt, dust mites, allergens, bacteria, harmful microbes, and stains. While vacuum cleaning will remove dirt on top of the mattress, the cleaning service provider will usually have the latest cleaning equipment to remove all the dirt and pests from the mattress. A bed cleaning method to use if you want to eliminate dust mites and other microbes is steam cleaning. If the bed is stained, it is advisable to use water extraction, though it is more expensive since the stains are also removed or become lighter.
