When a mattress is scrubbed, the fabric fibers can become damaged, causing small tears or abrasions known as micro-tears that may not be obvious at first. Repeated buffing and scrubbing over time can cause these micro-tears to eventually lead to visible tears in the fabric.
Furthermore, buffing a mattress with a shampoo solution can push the solution deeper into the mattress, making it more difficult to fully extract. This can lead to residual moisture and cleaning solution being left behind, which can potentially damage the mattress and even promote the growth of mold and mildew.
That’s why it is important to use gentle cleaning methods, such as our extraction cleaning, to ensure that your mattress remains in good condition and provides a healthy sleeping environment.
