How to Use the Fortador PRO Max Steam Cleaner on Mattresses
So you want to freshen up your mattress without paying an arm and a leg to have it professionally steam cleaned. The Fortador PRO Max steam cleaner is just what you need. This powerful yet compact unit delivers a continuous blast of super-heated steam to sanitize and deodorize your mattress in minutes.
To get started:
- Make sure your mattress is completely dry. Vacuum it thoroughly to remove any loose dirt or debris.
- Fill the steam cleaner with distilled water. Tap water contains minerals that can build up in the steam cleaner over time. Distilled water prevents this.
- Attach the mattress tool to the hose. It has a wide head to cover more surface area.
- Start with the highest steam setting. Move the tool slowly over the entire mattress surface using overlapping passes.
- Pay extra attention to any visible stains or spills. The hot steam helps lift these away from the fibers. You may need to pause in one area to fully treat a stubborn stain before moving on.
- Flip and rotate your mattress to get both sides and the edges.
- Make a final pass on medium steam to remove any remaining moisture. Your mattress will be dry and fresh in under an hour.
In no time at all, your mattress will be sanitized, deodorized, and feeling like new. Regular steam cleaning with the Fortador PRO Max steam cleaner helps remove allergens like dust mites, pet dander, and pollen while extending the life of your mattress. A fresh, clean bed—what a perfect way to end the day!
Tackling Tough Stains and Odors Like Urine and Sweat
When urine, sweat or other bodily fluids soak into a mattress, they can leave behind stubborn stains and nasty smells that seem impossible to remove. Standard cleaning methods like blotting, scrubbing and spraying stain removers may lighten the stains slightly, but the odors tend to linger. The hot, pressurized steam from the Fortador PRO Max penetrates deep into the mattress padding and filling to sanitize the entire area and deodorize the mattress from the inside out.
- Focus the steam on any visible stains first. Move the steam cleaner slowly over the stains and continue steaming until the stains start to lift and fade. The high heat will break down the stains and kill bacteria that can contribute to odors.
- Next, steam the entire mattress surface using overlapping passes to sanitize and deodorize the entire mattress. Pay extra attention to any areas where stains or odors seem concentrated. The steam will naturally freshen and brighten the mattress.
- For the most stubborn odors, sprinkle some baking soda on the mattress and let it sit before steaming. The baking soda will help absorb the odors. Vacuum up the baking soda after steaming. You may need to repeat this step a few times for severe odors.
- Allow the mattress to dry completely. Leave it uncovered in a well-ventilated room. This allows any remaining moisture and odors to escape, leaving your mattress fresh, clean and odor-free.
Sanitizing and Deodorizing for a Fresh, Clean Mattress
Once you’ve lifted away surface stains and odors from your mattress, it’s time to sanitize and deodorize for a fresh, clean feel. Steam cleaning is extremely effective at killing bacteria, dust mites, and other allergens that can build up in your mattress over time.
Sanitize and Refresh
Set your steam cleaner to the ‘sanitizing’ mode and slowly go over the entire surface of the mattress using the triangular brush attachment. Work in sections, using slow, overlapping passes to ensure full coverage. The high heat will eliminate bacteria, dust mites, and other microbes that can thrive in the warm, damp environment of a mattress. Be very careful not to saturate the mattress with steam to avoid damage.
Freshen and Deodorize
For the final step, attach the fragrance disk to your steam cleaner and run it over the mattress on the ‘deodorizing’ setting. The heat will help the essential oils and natural extracts in the fragrance disk permeate into the mattress fibers to leave your bed smelling fresh and clean. Some popular fragrances for mattresses include lavender, citrus, and linen. Make 2-3 slow passes over the entire mattress to distribute the fragrance evenly.
- Flip and rotate your mattress regularly and steam clean both sides for the best results.
- For stubborn odors like urine or sweat, pretreat the area before steam cleaning and consider using an odor eliminating spray after steaming.
- Encase your mattress in a protective cover after steam cleaning to keep it fresh until your next deep cleaning.
So there you have it, a quick and easy way to refresh your mattress and breathe new life into your bed. With the Fortador PRO Max steam cleaner, you can blast away years of built-up stains, smells, and allergens in a matter of minutes. No more lugging your mattress outside or renting heavy equipment.
