Waterbed & cover: April 6, 2019 April 6, 2019 LukePlotkin

A waterbed provides comfort and is also the most hygienic bed available.

An ordinary bed is a breeding ground for mold, bacteria and dust mites. No wonder many people are allergic to their current bed. With a waterbed, you avoid dust mites and allergies. The water mattress is impermeable to dirt and dander and can be cleaned with a vinyl cleaner.

More luxurious covers also offer the option of attaching yet another anti-seizing foil to the top layer with a zipper, allowing dust and dirt to penetrate even less into the cover and mattress.

In addition, the special cover over the water mattress can be washed or cleaned regularly.

Care of the waterbed

A waterbed is by far the most hygienic bed you can get, provided you take good care of it. The care of a waterbed includes the following steps:

  • Add conditioner
  • Clean the water mattress with vinyl cleaner
  • Bleeding the water mattress
  • Clean the cover
  • Conditioner for waterbeds

The tap water is not of optimal quality everywhere. If this is not the case, algae growth can occur in your water mattress. To counter algae growth in your water mattress, it is important that you put a vial of waterbed conditioner into your water mattress every six months.

Clean your water mattress with vinyl cleaner:

It is also important to take good care of the outside of your water mattress. You do this by cleaning your water mattress regularly, that is every three months, with a vinyl cleaner. Do not forget to clean the sides (between mattress and cover).

Bleeding the water mattress

After installing your waterbed or adding waterbed conditioner, air bubbles usually form in your waterbed. This is because the gases dissolved in the water are released slowly. Does your waterbed make clapping noises? Then you have to vent your waterbed with a breather pump.Visit thebest-mattress.org.

Ventilate the cover

When sleeping, everyone sweats. The cover – a kind of thick and often zippered cover around the mattress – absorbs the transpiration moisture that our body produces. By daily airing your cover this evaporates again.

Take your blanket off your bed every morning for a few hours, or fold it back. The moisture then evaporates through the heat of the water bag. This is very important for a clean and fresh bed.
