Well we all have purchased a mattress. What next? Do you ever think of mattress care? Let us start with treating our mattress as an “INVESTMENT”.
More often than not we tend to take anything with furniture as an expense, but it is time we change our outlook. On those lines, our mattress which broadly falls under furniture can be categorised as an “INVESTMENT”.
Next point comes is what would you do with your “Investment”? Simple take care of the “Investment”. Let us consider and ponder over some points of taking care of the mattress.
- The very first essential point to remember is “GOOD SUPPORT” for the mattress. Be sure to use a sturdy, high-quality bed frame. For a double size to super king-size set, make sure your frame has a strong center support that will prevent the mattress from bowing or breaking.
- Secondly, a good precautionary measure would be not to let the kids jump on your bed. Rough-handling could damage the interior construction of your mattress, and more importantly, they could get hurt.
- Following the manufacturer’s instructions. Be sure to follow any specific guidelines from your manufacturer about the best method of mattress care.
- Rotate it. This is perhaps the most important point in mattress care. Unless your mattress care instructions indicate otherwise, you may want to periodically rotate your mattress from end-to-end and flip it over, if applicable. Rotate your mattress every three months. This is to ensure that a person sleeps on different parts of the mattress to even out the pressure. If the mattress you bought has a good mattress core that allows you to sleep on either side, you should flip-over and sleep on the other side once a while to extend the lifespan of the mattress. Buy a good mattress that allows you to rotate and flip regularly to extend the lifespan of your mattress.
- Deep breaths. If you detect a slight new product odour when you first get your new mattress, leave the mattress and foundation uncovered and well ventilated overnight. A breath of fresh air should do the trick. Let your mattress breathe. Ventilate your room every day.
