Five Tips To Take Care Of Your Mattress

You saw an advert for a mattress for sale, but before you buy, you want to make sure that you understand the basics of how to take care of your mattress. It is a wise decision as prevention beats having to rectify issues or losing the warranty on the product offered for sale because of improper maintenance. Here are five tips to get you started:

Buy a Protector from the Same Supplier that Offers the Mattress for Sale

Buying the right protective cover can help you prolong the lifespan of the sleep surface. When you buy one from us along with the mattress, you benefit from the extended guarantee. It is already worth it, but considering that the protector also makes cleaning easier, it is also an investment to save you time.

The protector prevents debris, bacteria, skin, and sweat from ending up on the mattress, which could cause odours or allergies, and affect the durability and appearance of the product. With the protector, you also prevent spills from reaching the underlying surface. With too much moisture penetrating the sleep surface, the foam can be affected. In addition, this could lead to mould and mildew, which can be hazardous to your health. Also, by keeping the top layers protected from moisture, the foam shape and firmness can be preserved for longer.

Have a look at the range of mattress protectors we offer for sale and you’ll agree it is worth the small additional amount to protect your sleep investment.

Avoid Sitting on the Edge of the Bed

Sometimes, you have to sit on the edge of the bed, but don’t use your bed as a chair. Even when you just sit on the edge of the bed daily for short periods, it can cause the foam and springs, where relevant, to weaken at that spot. This weakening can eventually cause discomfort and even spread to the rest of the bed. If you tend to sit on the edge, opt for either a very firm mattress for sale or buy a memory foam type.

Give the Mattress a Bit of Breathing Time

Weird, but true. The product comes wrapped in special packaging material to protect it during transit. This means it has been encased in film that could lead to moisture build-up. Once you receive the product, remove the packaging, and let it sit for a while before covering it with the protector and bedding. This will ensure you have a dry surface.

Avoid Placing a Hardboard Between the Sleep Surface and the Base

In the past, people often placed a wooden plank or plywood board between the sleep surface and the base. The idea was to create a firmer support for the sleep surface. The base sets we sell already come with optimal support. Adding a wooden base to the picture affects the durability and performance of the entire bed. If you’re sleep surface is worn, it is better to replace it. If the base no longer provides the needed support, look for one offered for sale in our bed sets collection.

Rotate the Sleep Surface

To ensure the sleep surface gets even pressure and the opportunity to regain firmness, rotate it two to three times a year. When we say rotate, we mean from head to toe. With most of the new mattresses for sale, you don’t need to flip over the surface. If you have one of those, also do so twice a year.

Following these tips, you will be able to ensure the longevity of your bed. Now that you know how to best care for your sleep investment, use our promotions search option to find a mattress for sale at the best possible price.
