Steps to Purchasing a Quality Mattress and Hints on Maintaining It

When you invest in a high-quality mattress, your goal is to have it reward you with many years of comfort and quality sleep. After all, you spend about one-third of your life sleeping. There are a few things to know that will ensure you are buying a quality mattress and to help you maintain it for many years.


When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck, purchasing a two-sided mattress is the ultimate way to go. Two-sided mattresses are flippable. They are built so that both sides of the mattress offer equal support for sleeping. As a result, two-sided mattresses will not only last longer but will offer you superior quality compared to other mattresses. Flipping your mattress is so important the folks at Pittsburgh Mattress Factory offer a twice a year free turning service to their custom mattress customers in their 20 mile delivery area.


Your mattress will perform best and last longer when you use a box spring with actual coils to support it. Box springs provide additional support for your mattress and assist with absorbing the impact of the weight placed on it. Genuine box springs are the best foundation for your mattress, extend your mattress’s life and PREVENT body impressions.

Use a Mattress Protector

A mattress protector is the hero of your bedroom when it comes to taking good care of your new mattress. Use a high-quality mattress protector to prevent skin oils and sweat from sinking into the mattress and reduce the build-up of allergens. And when an accident like a spill happens, you will be glad that the mattress protector is there to prevent damage to the mattress underneath.

Keep Your Mattress Clean
  • Avoid eating in bed. Tiny crumbs left from your midnight snack can attract small critters and bugs.

  • Vacuum your mattress at least twice a year to prevent the build-up of dust mites, sweat, and allergens.

  • Clean spots immediately with gentle soap and a small amount of water.

  • Change your clothes before you hop into bed.

  • Deodorize your mattress with baking soda.

  • Allow the sun to stream through open windows occasionally to air out the mattress.
