Man Takes To Social Media To Show Exactly Why You Should Vacuum Your Mattress

We all know how important it is to vacuum — we vacuum our carpeting, fabric furniture, and even our drapes — but would you ever think of vacuuming your mattress? David Chen recently took to social media to reveal just how much dust can gather in your mattress. Running his Dyson vacuum over his mattress, he displayed the horrifying amount of dust and dead skin that wound up in the canister of his vacuum. Social media users were shocked and even shared some of their own experiences, with one person recommending that you get a mattress cover to prevent that from happening, adding that they can be tossed into the washer. Chen recommends vacuuming your mattress every 3-6 months. It’s also important to flip your mattress every 6 months to help maintain its shape.
