How to Extend the Life of Your Mattress

Many people buy their first mattress and keep it for ten or more years. That’s a lot of wear and tear to your mattress.  Selecting a new mattress is an investment in your sleep comfort and these tips can help with extending the life of your mattress.

Whether you’re hoping to get a few more years out of your current mattress or you’re preparing for an upgrade, here are four quick tips to extend the life of your mattress and help with a better night sleep:

  • Choose proper support. Most spring mattresses will require a boxspring (most commonly known today as a foundation) for support, and foam mattresses will need a support structure that is solid and firm. Be sure that you have the proper support in place for your specific mattress so that you can get many years of good use from it.
  • Use a mattress cover. A waterproof mattress cover is a simple but important way to ensure that your mattress is protected from spills, excessive sweat, allergens, dust mites, pet stains and other accidents.
  • Rotate regularly. The weight of one or more bodies regularly positioned on your mattress for hours at a time will leave visible signs of deterioration over the years, so be sure to rotate your mattress at least once every three months.
  • Clean mattress regularly.   Cleaning your mattress can help with extending the life of your mattress.  Let your mattress air out, take the sheets off and let air out and vacuuming your mattress can help with getting dust and hair out of your mattress this can help reduce the weight that is accumulated from dust, dander, hair and micro particles.  Did you know?  Over the life span of your mattress, your mattress can weigh up to 15 pounds more from the debris that collect in it over time. 

These quick tips will get you started on getting the most out of your mattress and helping to extend the life of your mattress.  To find out more about mattress protection be sure to visit No Badger Mattress and tell them that “Sparky” sent you.
