Regular mattress cleaning is essential to improve your health and the health of your mattress. That’s because over time, dust, dead skin, mites, bacteria, odours, and pet hair all find their way into your bed. (Think about it for too long and it may well give you nightmares.) Worse than that, these bed-dwelling nasties often cause nighttime coughing, sneezing, and wheezing. Luckily, you can hire a mattress cleaner professional who will restore your mattress to its former, healthier glory.

Putting clean linen on your bed every 1-2 weeks and airing helps your mattress stay cleaner for longer. But for a proper clean to get rid of dust, dead skin, stains, or mould, it’s best to hire a professional mattress cleaning service to do a thorough clean.
It’s a good idea to professionally dry or steam cleaning your mattress once every 6 months. In between professional cleans, you can strip your bed weekly so it can air out, or use a vacuum to remove surface dust.
Mattress cleaning usually takes a minimum of 2 hours. Your mattress cleaning professional will consider the size and condition of your mattress when deciding how long the service is likely to take.
The average cost for mattress cleaning in Australia is $85-$150 on Airtasker, although your service could cost more or less than this. The size of your mattress, condition, and the number of mattresses you want cleaned will affect the price.
Mattress cleaning requires a range of specialist tools and cleaning products designed to get great results, without damaging your mattress. Never had your mattress professionally cleaned before? Here’s what you can expect:
Strip your bed of all linen before your professional mattress cleaner arrives. This makes it easier for your cleaner to look at the fabric and assess any spots, stains, or other cleaning challenges. They’ll then decide which cleaning products and tools they need.
Surface dust and mites are quickly banished using a high powered vacuum for mattresses. (Meaning it won’t have been run over any dirty floors.) Some professional mattress vacuums include a UV light that kills germs and bacteria.
Depending on what’s decided during the inspection, your mattress will be deep cleaned using a dry cleaning method or a mattress steam cleaning technique. Mattress dry cleaning involves sprinkling cleaning powder over the mattress. Left to sit for several minutes, it will loosen dirt and oils trapped in the mattress. When enough time has passed, your cleaner will vacuum up the powder, taking the bed-based nasties with it.
Mattress steam cleaning uses hot water and pressure. This technique is best for eliminating mattress stains. Your cleaner may also combine steam cleaning with other stain removal products. If your mattress can be flipped, they’ll clean both sides.
Your mattress will need drying if it’s been steam cleaned. To speed this up, your cleaner will use extra drying equipment. Whether your mattress is steam or dry cleaned it’s a good idea to let your mattress air for a few hours afterwards. Deodorisers and sanitisers may have been added to your mattress so it smells fresh and clean, so it’s a good idea to let these settle. Your professional cleaner will advise what’s best based on the cleaning methods and product used.
Before leaving your property, your cleaner will do a final mattress inspection. They’ll check that stains are gone, there’s no lingering dust, and that the mattress is as dry as possible. Finally, they’ll pack away their equipment and let you know when you can make your bed.
