Your mattress is one of the largest purchases you will make for your home. You can spend anywhere from $300 to $5000 on a mattress, so it’s no wonder people want to do what they can to get as many years out of it as possible. Not only that, but you spend a good chunk of your time laying on it. Carpet Care 2000 is here to share some tips to help you extend the life of your mattress.
Protect from Stains with a Covered Mattress
While you are sleeping, the average person does a decent amount of sweating and shedding of dead skins. All of that is absorbed into your mattress if it doesn’t have a good quality mattress cover on it. This is one of the most important steps in extending the life of your mattress. Spills and liquids may also happen, and when they do, they can degrade the foam your mattress is made out of. Your mattress cover will make cleaning up any spills or bodily fluids quick and easy.
Mattress Rotation Schedule
To avoid getting body impressions in your mattress, you should rotate your bed. This will help your mattress wear evenly. A mattress should be rotated about every three months to avoid any permanent impressions.
Wash Your Sheets, Blankets, Comforter, Duvet etc
To keep the dust mite population down as well as keep your mattress from contracting strange, unwanted odors, wash your bedding every couple of weeks. If you happen to suffer from severe allergies, consider washing your bedding every week to keep the dust mites at bay.
Train Your Dog to Sleep in a Dog Bed Rather than Yours
Although your furry companions might may good snuggle buddies, encourage them to sleep in their own bed to protect your mattress. Pet dander builds up in your mattress, and pets are also prone to having accidents which will ruin your mattress quickly.
Bed Frames & Box Springs Give Your Mattress Support
If your mattress isn’t supported properly, you will likely start to notice there will be areas that sag. Your mattress can’t offer you the support you need if it isn’t getting enough support. Using a high-quality frame as well as a box spring will help you avoid this problem. Just like your mattress, a box spring can wear out. Make sure your box spring isn’t sagging or constructed wood slats that are damaged or broken.
Clean Your Mattress with Baking Soda
One way to extend the life of your mattress is to clean it regularly. About once every month, you should be using the attachments on your vacuum to get rid of unwanted dust and debris that has made its way to your mattress. Baking soda can assist you in getting rid of any unwanted odors. Sprinkle it generously on your mattress and allow it to sit for several hours before using your vacuum to clean it up.
