If you are among the happy owners of memory foam mattresses in Westminster, sooner or later you need to face the question about their proper cleaning. Is there a difference between cleaning such a mattress and cleaning an ordinary mattress? Mvir Cleaning will answer that question by giving some tips of what to do and what not to do when you perform memory foam mattress cleaning Westminster.
What to not do?
First of all, avoid using any harsh cleaning solutions on your mattress. This automatically excludes all borax, bleaches or hydrogen peroxide from the process of cleaning. Although these cleaning solutions could work effectively with other types of mattresses, they should not be applied on a memory foam mattress, as they could ruin it. If applied, they would result in splotches of discoloration on your mattress surface.
Another thing to strictly avoid is soaking the foam. It is next to possible to make all that moisture out, which will surely result in mildew and mould formation.
Another useful tip to follow is that the mattress should not be exposed to intensive heat even if you try to accelerate its drying time. If you have to dry it fast, rather use a hair dryer that is set on the lowest setting to not damage the fabric. The better option is to well ventilate the room and leave it to dry there.
