Mattress Care & Maintenance
There’s no question about it. If you take care of your mattress properly, it will wear slower and retain its comfort longer.
- Protect it from moisture.
Using a Waterproof Mattress Protector is essential for preventing moisture from seeping into the upholstery layers.
Keeping your upholstery materials clean and dry will help prevent them from compressing and retaining your body’s odor.
There are many mattress protectors on the market.
Here’s a link to a couple of the ones that we offer on our website.
They are the ones we use at home.
- Rotate/Flip it on a regular basis.
“Most of your weight is at one end of the mattress.”
“Sleeping partners are often different weights.”
These are the main reasons why your mattress will wear unevenly and become uncomfortable much too quickly, if you do not rotate/flip your mattress on a regular basis from the time it’s new.
One sided mattresses are rotated.
Two sided mattresses are flipped.
All of this is nothing new.
This procedure has always been the industry standard.
Once a month for the first year, once every three months thereafter.
Two sided mattresses should be flipped, side to side and head to foot on a rotating bases for maximum results.
King size mattresses often develop a “hump up the middle”.
Since most people sleep farther apart on a king size mattress, the center remains like new while each begins to wear.
The hump up the middle is, “the nature of the beast“.
Adding to the problem is the foundation, which is usually reinforced up the center of the bed.
There is a solution that will reduce the effects.
This trick only works with a standard king size mattress.
A standard king is almost square…close enough that it works.
Rotate your king size mattress 1/4 turn.
