To get the most life from your mattress, you should care for it by following these four tips!
Your mattress doesn’t work by itself; it is an integral part of a bedding system that works together to give you proper support and restful sleep. With that said, your mattress itself requires the proper support of your box spring, adjustable foundation, or bed frame. Not having these elements will result in sagging and an overall shortened performance life for your mattress. Be sure to purchase a mattress and foundation that are compatible. Seek the expertise of professionals when you are buying your mattress.
Use a Protector
It’s just a fact that many of us eat and drink in the bed. Any spills will leave stains on the mattress and negatively impact the performance and integrity of its materials, including the fabric itself and other foam-like materials. Liquids could even cause the foams to collapse and not return to its original shape as it was intended to do. Wrap your mattress in a liquid-resistant protector. There are even versions that are made with breathable materials to help keep you as comfortable as possible while you sleep.
When was the last time you cleaned your mattress? It’s not something that fits into your washing machine, so many people don’t clean their mattresses at all. Cleaning your mattress regularly reduces dust and grime buildup. All you have to do is use the handheld attachment on your vacuum to run the hose over your mattress. Never saturate your mattress in cleaning liquids and use a combination of mild detergent and warm water to remove stains. Make sure that your mattress is completely dry before covering it again with your protector and sheets.
Just like the tires on your car, your mattress should be periodically rotated to even out the wear. It’s likely that you usually sleep on the same side of the bed every night. To help extend the life of your mattress, rotate it about once a month or less, depending on your preference.
