Tempurpedic mattresses require a different type of care than traditional spring coil mattresses do. While spilling a drink or liquid on a spring coil mattresses would be an inconvenience with a spring coil, it can actually cause damage to the mattress if you have a Tempurpedic. Here are a few tips on how to clean stains off of a Tempurpedic mattress in Hattisburg, MS, just in case an accident happens.
Soak Up The Liquid
The first step to take whenever there is a spill near a Tempurpedic mattress is to soak up as much of the liquid as you can, as soon as possible. Use towels and blot around the spill to ensure that you soak up as much of it as possible. Put a fair amount of pressure on the towels once the initial spill is cleaned up to be sure that you got as much liquid as possible.
Use A Mild Soap Or Solution
If the liquid leaves a stain behind, there are a few things that can be done to help remove it from the mattress. While you should not ever get the mattress wet, if it is already stained it is permissible to use water or a gentle cleanser to remove the stain. You can use mild dishwashing soap or laundry detergent. If the stain is particularly stubborn, you can mix peroxide, baking soda, and dishwashing soap in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on the stain, give it a few moments to soak in, and then blot off with a cloth.
Air Dry The Mattress
The mattress may take a considerable length of time to dry. To help speed things along, you could place several fans in the room and shut the door, or use a hair dryer on the spot in question if it’s small enough in size. Be careful not to leave the hair dryer unattended. After about an hour, if you find that the mattress is still wet, you can place a towel on top to soak up more moisture while the fans are still blowing. Wait until the mattress is completely dry before putting the cover back on or making the bed to prevent mold from developing.
