Mattress stains happen more often than many of us would like to admit. Not only embarrassing, stains may also harbor and grow bacteria and other micro-organisms if not properly treated in a timely manner.
There are many types of stains that your mattress can take on, the obvious one being urine, but any type of food or beverage spill or liquid penetration can cause a stain. Any time that your mattress takes on a stain it means that something has penetrated your mattress and it has most likely not been cleaned or dried correctly. This failure to clean and dry out produces bacteria growth.
Removing a urine stain from the mattress requires different techniques for humans as opposed to animals. If not treated properly you could be merely pushing the stain and odor deeper into your mattress or even setting the coloration of the stain in, making it impossible to remove. If you do not know how to remove a stain from a mattress you should do the research first (before picking up that bottle of bleach). An even better move would be to call the professionals in mattress cleaning and we’ll make it easy for you!
DIY Mattress Cleaning
There is nothing wrong with doing research and committing to a do-it-yourself project. There are various internet articles that provide recommendations on how to treat stains that may remove coloration and even odors. Some even describe non-toxic treatments such as the use of peroxide, baking soda, vinegar, etc. Nevertheless, your mattress is still exposed to the unintended consequences of improper drying and there is no proven economical method outside of the remarkable capabilities of Clean Sleep Technology.
It can be difficult to remove a stain from a mattress if you’re not equipped with the right tools, equipment and supplies. Mattress stain removal also depends on how long the stain has been left untreated. The longer a stain is left untreated decreases the chances of complete removal. In any case, it is still best to clean for not only the visible, but also the hygienic benefits of sanitation.
Properly Drying The Mattress
Just about all cleaning techniques utilize a liquid of some sort to remove stains from a mattress. A major factor that comes into play is the possibility of collateral damage when liquid penetrates a mattress. Mold, mildew, staleness and remnant chemical odors are common symptoms of a mattress that has not been dried correctly and the mattress can be lost once it gets to that stage.
Drying is essential to a thorough completion of our service. Our Clean Sleep Machine reaches heat in excess of 165°F which leaves mattresses dry and ready for use immediately after cleaning. That means no waiting to place those clean sheets back on your bed at home! Clean Sleep delivers the ideal way to return a mattress from cleaning; ensuring that it’s been properly dried and ready for a great sleep.

Accidents Happen, What Next?
Mattress urine stains can be a long term reminder of a past accident. The earlier a urine stain is addressed the better chance the traces can be effectively removed. If not removed in a timely manner the liquid will infiltrate mattresses and may damage fibers and begin to start rusting the inner springs. Negative effects that are not commonly considered include “squeaky” beds, mold and mildew.
Clean Sleep Technology refreshes your mattress by extracting the liquid from the mattress and applying our organic treatment to help neutralize stains and odors that can creep deep within and linger for months. With urine being a protein stain, there are cleaning principals for removing it effectively. If not done properly you risk the chance of leaving moisture inside your bed that harbors other problems.
Pet urine contains different components than those of humans. Cat urine on a mattress or other fabric may affect the fabric’s dyes or finishes. All urine can leave unpleasant smells that linger for months if not treated properly. Successful urine stain removal from mattresses requires the right approach, which may call for multiple treatments.
If you don’t have the time or tools to clean a mattress stain such as urine, give us a call and we’ll make it quick, easy, and affordable for you.
