How to Properly Care for a Mattress

Mattresses are an essential piece of the home and of our daily lives. A mattress should support your body and your sleeping habits. You should properly care for a mattress to extend its lifespan as well as make sure you have the best sleep possible. The following article includes ways to care for and protect your mattress.  

 

Rotating

In order to keep your mattress from falling flat or from creating groves that are custom to your body you will need to rotate your mattress on a schedule. Mattresses should be rotated every 6-12 months to keep their shape and to keep them sturdy and comfortable and prevent sagging.    

 

Protecting the mattress

Consider investing in a mattress protector to create a barrier between your mattress and your body and other environmental elements. A mattress protector will help keep your mattress free from dirt, sweat, dust mites, moisture and more. Mattress protectors can also be great if you have pets or children and can help lengthen the lifespan of your bed. 

 

Bed linens

Changing your bed linens frequently will also help keep your mattress in good condition. Your bed linens should be washed and dried on a regular basis to wash away sweat, skin cells, dirt, crumbs and anything else that might find its way into your bed. You should also change your bed linens depending on the season with more insulated linens for winter and cooler sheets for Spring and Summer. 

 

Support

You should have proper support for your mattress in the form of bed frames and box springs. A box spring will support the mattress and anyone who is laying on the bed. A solid foundation will also provide shock absorbency and will help your mattress stay sturdy and prevent dips or slunching during its lifetime. 

 

Moving

When moving your mattress make sure to protect it by placing a mattress cover over it. Mattresses can easily collect dust and other environmental elements and you do not want to bring those things with you from home to home. 

 

There are many ways that you can protect your mattress to ensure an extended lifespan. Staying on top of cleaning and rotating your bed can help while also being mindful of the foundation the bed is on.
