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 on the fabric and structure. Selecting a new mattress is an investment in your sleep comfort for as long as you can preserve the quality of your new purchase.
Whether you’re hoping to get a few more years out of your current mattress or you’re preparing for an upgrade, we can help. Here are three quick tips to extend the life of your mattress:
- Choose proper support. Most spring mattresses will require a boxspring 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.
These quick tips will get you started on preserving your mattress investment, but there are many other care and maintenance recommendations.
