A mattress is an investment and a big decision. With proper care, you will be able to prolong the life of your mattress. Below you will find a list of 7 tips to best take care of your mattress:
Rotate your mattress up to four times a year to equally distribute the normal wear and tear. Mattresses should be turned head-to-toe and side to side (if not a pillow top).
Vacuum your mattress and box spring every 2 to 3 months (use an upholstery attachment for the best results).
Take the mattress pad and sheets off your bed when you go out of town in order to air it out.
Use a mattress pad or protector. A good mattress protector will preserve the comfort of your mattress by preventing bed bugs, dust mites, mold, mildew and other allergens from acting as a wear and tear accelerant.
Don’t let your mattress get wet!
Don’t use cleaning compounds to clean your mattress.
Try to distribute your weight evenly when laying on your mattress (avoid sitting on the corners of the bed).
Don’t let your kids use your mattress like a trampoline!
The lifespan of a mattress depends on several factors, including type of mattress, original quality and amount of use. Preserve the life of your mattress by treating it with respect and care. Give us a call if you have any questions regarding the proper care for mattresses.
