Do you know that your bed is the filthiest object in your house? Well, this is certainly a tough fact to swallow when you consider that you spend nearly a 3rd of your life sleeping over it. That means you are inhaling a mixture of hazardous particles – including allergy causing dust mites, bacteria, fungal spores, flame retardants, human skin cells, and plasticisers – 8-hours a day, 365 days a year. Though most of these aforementioned things won’t take your life, but the buildup of debris like dust can prompt different health problems gradually, including worsening or even inducing allergies & asthma.
But dust is not the mere ugly thing creeping around in your mattress. Listed below are a few other substances that may hide in your mattress.
Food – Crumbs or fluid food spills can seep through your mattress, offering breeding ground for bacteria & other germs.
Chemicals – Finishing agents used in bed sheets and mattress can include flame retardants, plasticisers, and isocyanates, which can be injurious to your well being.
Sweat – Humans generate nearly 25 gallons of sweat in bed every year. This along with body heat from sleeping offers a perfect setting for bacteria and fungi to grow.
Fungal Spores – Synthetic and feathered bedding can feature 17 different species of fungus including Aspergillus, Cladosporium and Pencillium which worsen asthma and allergies.
Skin Cells – Human body sheds nearly 500 million skin cells every day. When you nap, these cells accumulate in your mattress gradually, and provide microbes with food to nourish.
