Great question, Lilly. We have our mattress and pillows zipped up inside hypoallergenic casings so we're guessing that for those of you, like us, who tend to be prone to sinus issues due to dust or allergies, an upholstered bed might not be the best option. If allergies aren't a problem for you then we'd imagine a weekly pass with a handheld vacuum would do the trick nicely. But let's hear from upholstered bed owners! Anyone?
