Facts About Germs and Mattresses

The typical Tacoma residence collects 40-pounds of dust annually. The dust settles on the carpet, furnishings, upholstery, and even the mattress.

In bedrooms, the bed is the primary spot for bacteria to collect. The bed, in fact, makes the bedroom a lot less sanitary. When you toss and turn, it suspends particles into the air.

The mattress has so much bacteria because your sweat and body heat creates a good environment for germs to thrive.

How Dirty Are Bed Accessories?

Your bed is more than just the mattress. The entire set includes the blankets, pillow, and linens. These all provide additional surfaces for germs and dust. Here is some food for thought to consider:

  • A one-month-old pillow has 12 million bacteria per square inch. That’s nearly 40 times dirtier than an unwashed pet food bowl.
  • A bed sheet that’s only seven days old has five million bacteria per square inch. That’s dirtier than a bathroom door handle.

The bedroom as a whole may also comprise of a carpet or tile floor. Both floor types also collect dust and microscopic particles.
