3. Vacuum your mattress starting from the top to the sides to remove mites, dust, hair, dead skin and other debris that has accumulated on your mattress. Use the wide brush attachment to vacuum the top of your mattress and the long upholstery nozzle or a crevice tool to dislodge the dirt from hard to reach places.
