Ways to Make Your Mattress Last Longer

When you invest in a high-quality mattress, your goal is to have it bless you with many years of comfort and quality sleep. After all, you spend about one-third of your life sleeping. However, there are a few things that you can do to make your mattress last longer.

Follow these tips to sleep comfortably on your new mattress for many years.

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.

Support the Mattress Properly

Your mattress will perform best and last longer when you use a box spring with actual coils to support it. Box springs work hard to support your mattress and absorb the impact of bodies and items placed on the bed. Genuine box springs support your mattress best, extend your mattress's life, and prevent body impressions.

Be Gentle

We have all been so tired that we threaten to throw ourselves into bed, but we need to be gentle with our mattresses. Substantial impacts such as flopping, jumping, or standing on the mattress can cause the mattress material, box spring, and frame to wear faster.

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.

Buy a Two-Sided Mattress

When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck, a two-sided mattress is the only way to go. Double-sided mattresses are flippable, built from the core out 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 than other mattresses.

Once you have your two-sided mattress, you will want to flip it regularly per the manufacturer's guidelines to keep both sides in outstanding condition.
