How to Clean Latex Mattress

There are 2 popular types of mattress, coil mattress and latex mattress. Each type will need a different treatment and cleaning process to prolong its life and keep it feels like new.

Why Choose Latex Mattress Instead of Coil Mattress?

Latex mattresses are made of natural materials, which makes them more durable and comfortable than coil mattresses. Coil mattresses are made of metal coils that can rust over time, making them less comfortable and less supportive.

Latex mattresses are also less likely to harbour dust mites and other allergens, making them a good choice for people with allergies or asthma. Last but not least, latex mattresses are more environmentally friendly than coil mattresses because they are made of renewable materials.

Why is It Important to Clean Latex Mattress?

Latex mattresses are usually made from natural material such as rubber tree sap. It has hypoallergenic and anti-microbial properties to protect you from bacteria, dust mites, and mould. Although it’s naturally resistant to those allergens, it still needs to be cleaned regularly to prevent the growth of bacteria and mould.

Dirty latex mattresses can harbour bacterial growth, which can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems. The dust mites that live in the mattress can also cause asthma attacks. To prevent those health problems, you need to clean your latex mattress at least once a month.

How to Clean Coil Mattress

To clean a coil mattress, start by removing the sheets and any other bedding. Then, vacuum the mattress with a hand-held or upholstery attachment to remove dust and dirt. Next, spot clean any stains with a mild detergent and a damp cloth. Finally, let the mattress air out in a well-ventilated room for several hours before putting fresh sheets on.

If there are stains that are difficult to remove, you can always call professional mattress cleaning service. Helpling offers a mattress extraction service that uses specialised chemicals and extractor to remove dirt, moisture and lighten stains.

How to Clean Latex Mattress

If you want to deep clean your latex mattress, try using baking soda. Sprinkle the baking soda over the entire surface of the mattress and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Then, vacuum the baking soda up with an upholstery attachment. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the baking soda for a refreshing scent.


If you have a spill on your latex mattress, blot the area with a clean, dry cloth to remove as much liquid as possible. Then, use a mild detergent and a damp cloth to spot clean the stain. Rinse the area with clean water and let it air dry completely.

Latex Mattress Maintenance

To keep your latex mattress in good condition, you should vacuum it regularly with an upholstery attachment. You should also spot clean any stains as soon as they happen.

Consider using a mattress protector. It will prevent stains and extend the life of your mattress.
