MRSA is a highly-contagious infection that can spread through direct contact with an infected person, but also through furniture and household items.

Cleaning is very important in combating the spread of infection, but with certain items like carpets and mattresses, it can be difficult.

How to get MRSA out of carpets, mattresses and upholstery Because MRSA is a bacteria, there is nothing that it hates more than when you turn up the temperature.

Temperatures of above 65 degrees Celsius will go some way to reducing the risk of MRSA, so perhaps a really hot shampoo wash would be the best way to go.

You may also want to include a bit of bleach in the mixture.

Vacuuming is also really important because MRSA often travels in dead skin cells that are found on furniture. I'd suggest a HEPA or micron filter-fitted vacuum to do the job.

Cleaning out the MRSA In a study of MRSA in hospitals, it was found that people were at most risk of contracting the disease through re-contamination.

Although cleaning your house thoroughly with bleach and other chemicals is a good idea, the best approach is to stick with a strict regime of cleaning, hand washing, and eliminating contact with shared surfaces (like hand towels).

I'd recommend checking out the following sites for further advice in the battle with MRSA:

You can get the help of professional cleaners, as cleaning with chemicals will kill all the germs.

The best remedy for germs and bacterias is sunlight.

So I would suggest spread the bed and the carpets in the sunlight for some days. The intense heat will help in killing the germs.
