How To Maintain Your Mattress?
A good mattress can help you get a good night’s sleep, restore your body during the day, and help you restore energy and keep you healthy. A high-quality mattress can normally be used for 8-10 years before it needs to be replaced. Cleaning and maintenance should not be neglected… how should we care for our mattresses?
5 Ways You Can Make Your Mattress Last Longer
1. Use a Mattress Protector / Topper
We recommend covering your new mattress with a good quality mattress protector/mattress topper, this will make future cleaning easier and will protect the mattress from dust and dirt in the air, even if food or drinks are accidentally overturned, it can prevent stains from settling on the mattress, making it more durable.
2. Turn and Rotate Your Mattress Regularly
The mattress needs to be turned and rotated to prolong its life. Because each person’s weight and sleeping habits are different, the position of the spring in the mattress will be different, and the spring force in each place of the mattress is uneven after long-term use. For best use, we recommend that you turn the mattress every six to twelve weeks. This ensures that the mattress adjusts to your body and sleeping position.
3. Spot Cleaning And Hoovering
Clean and hoover the surface of the mattress regularly to remove dirt and dust, or dry it to kill bacteria. Since dead skin cells and dust mites sometimes accumulated on your mattress, it is recommended that you clean it every two months. For more stubborn stains, we recommend spot cleaning. For the best result, you should follow the mattress manufacturer’s care guidelines. However, a very mild detergent and a soft laundry brush can usually do the trick.
4. Avoid Jumping Up And Down On Bed
As tempting as it may be, try not to let children bounce up and down on the bed as it will damage the springs. We also recommend avoiding sitting on the edge of your bed as it puts pressure on the edge springs and excessive or frequent pressure could damage the border stitching.
5. Pairing With A Suitable Boxspring / Divan
A boxspring/divan makes your mattress work better and provides the support you need during sleep. The slats give the mattress more breathability, the spring base makes the mattress softer, and some boxspring styles even offer storage space for a better life and more comfortable sleep.
