Give Your Clients Optimum Health with a Deep Cleaning Mattress Service

Give Your Clients Optimum Health with a Deep Cleaning Mattress Service

For a super simple way to set your cleaning business apart, or even that of your employer, provided you’re in the domestic sector of the cleaning industry, the sure-fire way to stand out from the crowd, is to include a deep clean of the mattress.

In some situations you can find this isn’t even an optional task.

If you aren’t planning to offer it as an advertised service, you can use the service to surprise your clients, by giving their mattress a deep clean, while the sheets are in the wash.

This is particularly essential for those cleaning the homes of elderly, when residents may have bowel problems, leading to soiled mattresses. It can, on the other be hand, need to be a scheduled appointment in situations where home care provision is in place, to cater to the personal needs of bed bound residents.

In those situations, you’d need to work beside care providers to ensure you’re meeting the highest standard of cleaning, maintaining optimum health of patients.

The problem with the mattress is the amount of bacteria that’s locked up in there. While mattress toppers are advised, and great for a quick wash clean up, there are still dust mites, and harmful bacteria going to be located deep within the mattress itself.

That can contribute to health issues such as eczema, asthma, ticks, and sometimes other bed bugs. Those will need to be eradicated, and it’s up to you as the cleaning provider to take care of that need.

Mattress Cleaning Benefits Every Domestic Client

No matter what age, or even if your client has any mobility issues, or other health problem, you can still provide a much needed service to every household you work with.

The problems from unhygienic mattresses can include any of the following…

  • Asthma
  • Dust mites
  • Ticks
  • Hay fever
  • Eczema
  • Skin allergies

As a result of…

  • Spills
  • Pet hair
  • Vomit
  • Mould
  • Dead skin contamination
  • Body fluid
  • Perspiration

It’s stomach churning to think of all the germs, and even insects that can be worming around inside a mattress, and that’s one of the reasons, if you do want to provide this additional service, it’s pretty easy to add it in, and you can find yourself being in more demand than service providers who don’t offer this, as it’s not a task most people look forward to.

It’s time consuming to do the laundry itself, never mind the thought of the added chores to give the mattress a deep clean for maximum health benefits.

For those starting out their own cleaning business, this is one service you may want to include, setting yourself apart from other services in your area.

Anything you can do that will make your service stand out better than the rest, will give you a competitive advantage.

A cleaning business is all about adding benefit to the client, by freeing up their time, while providing the utmost of the best cleaning service you can.

It’s better to work with one cleaner, who can meet all the cleaning requirements, than to hire multiple “specialist” providers at a higher cost for each area, or item requested to be cleaned.

You could be that person to meet each need of your clients. The mattress service could be the one service to set you above any competitor, when used in addition to your regular services.

    so, what would the right procedure be to clean mattresses. I would visualise that steam cleaning them would be first priority then maybe extraction cleaning with a carpet machine.!!
