Eight tips for maximising your mattress’s life

Eight tips for maximising your mattress’s life

Your mattress is an investment that you make for better sleep—and better physical and mental health. So of course you want to make it last! Depending on the type of mattress that you cozy up to every night, the rules of caring for it may have changed. Maximize your bed’s life with the following tips.

Rotate It. While manufacturers used to recommend both flipping and rotating your mattress regularly to help it wear more evenly, newer beds have just one “right side up.” For a brand new set, avoid lumps and bumps by rotating it end to end every two weeks for the first four months, and then every three months after that. And don’t forget your box spring! That should also be rotated (but not flipped) every six months. If you’re unsure, it’s never a bad idea to check your warranty or ask a manager at the store where you bought it.

Spread the Love. You may have a favorite seat at the table, a favorite spot on the couch, and even a designated side of the bed. But when it comes to sitting on the edge of your bed to get dressed or tie your shoes, sitting in the same spot every time can cause your mattress to lose its structure prematurely.

Don’t Monkey Around. Jumping on the bed may sound like fun, but whatever your age, it’s better to do your jumping elsewhere. Not only is it dangerous, but it can damage the coils and the fibers of your mattress.

One-up Your Sheets. While a fitted sheet can help to protect the mattress, you’ll keep it even safer from dirt—and stains—if you first cover it with a waterproof, washable mattress cover. Beyond that, some mattress covers provide extra padding for comfort, as well as protection from allergens and bedbugs.

Keep it Clean—and Dry. You might not think of taking a vacuum to your mattress, but you should. Regularly giving it a clean sweep helps to keep dust from becoming ground into the mattress. Spilled something? You can dab at it with warm soapy water, but avoid getting it any more wet than you have to since moisture creates a breeding ground for mold. Then, let it dry completely before making the bed.

Use Baking Soda to Nix Smells. Got something stinky going on? Try this to absorb odors without harming your mattress: Sprinkle it with baking soda and wait 20 minutes. Then use a vacuum to suck up the baking soda, and enjoy a fresher night’s rest.

Carry it Carefully. Your mattress may have straps on the side, but they’re actually not made for carrying it. Use those straps instead for help positioning your mattress (like when you rotate it). If you need to lift it completely, do so from underneath, and make sure to get several strong people to work together, lifting with their legs. And while you’re at it, ever see a car or truck with a mattress strapped to the top? Not a good idea. Instead, only transport your mattress when it’s fully supported.

Give It A Regular Check-up. Your mattress is only as good as the foundation that it’s placed on—ideally a good-quality frame that you purchased at the same time as your mattress. Keep it up by checking the legs and castors every six months to see if they need to be tightened.

Trade It In When It’s Time. Even with the best care, your mattress will eventually wear out, usually after eight to 10 years. It may show wear (like coils poking through or saggy edges) or it may not (kind of like a pair of sneakers that you wear only on the treadmill). But if you find that you’re waking up with an achy back or it’s simply not feeling as comfortable, it may be time to go shopping online on Beds Depot.

Shopping for the right mattresses to improve your sleeping experience

Overwhelmed As You Go Shopping for Mattresses? You Don’t Have to Be!

Sleeping on the right mattress is crucial to your overall well-being. There are several choices when it comes features, innovations, and materials. When shopping for mattresses in Sacramento, here are some quick tips to help you out.

Ask Stores for a Comfort Test

It is all a matter of personal comfort, and the truth is there is no real evidence to show that firm is better than soft, so you need to check how the mattress interacts with your body. Ideally, the perfect mattress should offer you optimum support without placing pressure on your feet, hips, shoulders or head. It should also be able to support your body weight, while keeping your spine at a fairly neutral position.

To find out if the mattress gives the right support, slide your hand underneath the small of your back. If it fits easily, it is too soft. If not at all, it is too firm. Go for what is comfortable but when in doubt, err on the side of caution and go for the firmer mattresses as they soften with age. When shopping, ask about any comfort guarantee before you buy and make sure to read the fine print.

Consider Checking for Possible Allergens

If you’re allergic to mold, mites, and dust, then consider going for a hypoallergenic mattress, which are typically made from wool and natural latex. You may also want to check the mattress label to see if there are chemicals that might disagree with you.

Get Advice

If you have a medical condition, talk to your doctor or physical therapist before you go shopping to see if they have any suggestions. While it is great to ask friends and family for advice, remember that they may be an expert on their own mattresses, but everyone’s body is different. It is best to do your own research and try the mattresses out for yourself. The good news is most salespeople from quality stores are trained to assist you in finding the correct mattress, and will gladly help you.
