You woke up feeling all itchy. There’s a huge insect bite on your cheek. Your skin feels dry and scaly. What could be causing that? Bedbugs and mites could be causing these skin reactions. Bedbugs are so microscopic. You don’t see or notice them. They usually feed at night, leaving you with skin irritation in the morning. Bedbugs can cause a lot of skin reactions and allergies. If you have sensitive skin, you will be more prone to allergies.
If you have a musty mattress that’s been with you for years, it might be time to look for a mattress for sale in Welling or other areas. Generally, you have to buy a new mattress after seven to 10 years, though it also depends on the quality of the mattress and how well you take care of it. You can get your mattress deep-cleaned as well. This is cheaper, and the cleaners usually do a pretty good job.
You can lessen your risk of allergies and adverse skin reactions by simply cleaning the bedroom thoroughly. There’s nothing like a clean bedroom to make you feel calm and at peace. You should make it a habit to organize and clean every nook and cranny of your room. If you have only one room that you can keep clean and neat, it should be the bedroom.
Change the Bed Covers Weekly
Make sure that you have enough bed covers so that you won’t have to laundry them every week or so. Change your covers at least once a week. Doesn’t it feel great to always be sleeping on a clean bedsheet? Since the bed cover is exposed all day long, it usually becomes dusty. You put things on it, too, such as your handbag and phone. That makes it dirty as well. Changing it every week ensures that you don’t sleep on dirty sheets for too long.
Wipe the Surfaces
Wipe the top of your dresser, side tables, and TV consoles. These surfaces attract a lot of dust, which can then be carried over to your clothes and bed. It wouldn’t take you an hour to wipe the exposed surface. Do it after you have your breakfast and before taking a bath.
Take out the Trash
As a general rule, you shouldn’t be eating inside your room. If you do, you’re also probably throwing food packaging and containers in your bedroom trash can. These still have tiny food remnants that can attract pests and other insects. First, try not to throw food items in your bedroom trash can. Second, if you do, take the trash out every night.
Wash the Dirty Clothes
At the very least, don’t keep dirty clothes in your bedroom. Dirty clothes smell. That smell lingers in the entire room. That’s why your room smells musky at times. It could be from the sweat on your gym clothes. Keep your clothes in the laundry area where they belong.
Something is calming about having a clean bedroom. You’ll rest and sleep better. If you find yourself too stressed out at work, try to clean and organize your room. It will make a world of difference.
