Prolonging The Life Of Your Mattress – 6 Mattress Care Tips

February 6th, 2008

Ensuring that you get the most life out of your mattress is an important aspect of enjoying your sleep for years to come. These helpful mattress care tips should help prolong the life of your mattress.

  • Invest in a Mattress Pad: A quality mattress pad serves several functions in prolonging the life of your mattress. A good mattress pad will bear the brunt of your weight and use of the mattress, which will help reduce the wear and tear on your mattress. Mattress pads will also catch stains before they reach your mattress. Replacing a stained mattress pad is much less expensive and much more convenient than replacing a quality mattress.
  • Turn Your Mattress Regularly: To help prevent sagging springs and unsightly sags, turn your mattress on a regular basis. Be sure to flip both vertically and horizontally.
  • Provide Support: Old, busted foundations and box spring sets may not be firm enough to provide adequate support for a high-quality mattress. When you replace your mattress, also consider replacing your foundation.
  • Carry Your Mattress On It’s Side: Instead of using the handles on the side of your mattress when you are carrying it, be sure to always carry the mattress upright on its side. The handles should only be used for positioning the mattress on the foundation, and can create sags in the mattress if carried by the handles.
  • Avoiding Smoking, Eating, & Drinking on the Mattress: Although it sounds comfortable, avoid eating & drinking on the mattress. If the mattress does get wet, be sure to quickly dry the mattress using a hair dryer or by air drying. Keeping the mattress away from smoke can also help to prolong the life of the mattress.
  • Keep Jumping to the Trampoline: Although it’s tempting, avoid jumping on the mattress and avoid letting others jump on the bed. Mattresses are not designed to withstand the weight of a person jumping on the bed.
