How to ensure your mattress
stays in prime condition
for a perfect nights sleep
Tip 1: Never machine or service washed your mattress.
You should never wash or dry clean your mattress. However, you don’t want to have millions dust mites in your bed. Here is how you can keep your mattress clean and fresh. To remove stains, gently clean the stained surface with a wet cloth and wait for it to dry naturally. Let as much sunshine in as possible to help air out your mattress. You are also encouraged to vacuum your entire mattress surface. Make sure you pay attention to the corners of your mattress when vacuuming. To freshen up your mattress, sprinkle some baking soda over the top of your mattress and let it sit for several hours. Baking soda works by absorbing odours and stains. When time is up, vacuum up the rest of the baking soda.
Tip 2: Turn and rotate your mattress over once a month.
It is recommended to rotate your mattress once a month for the first 3 months, and once every 3 months after that. This provides equal wear to each side of the mattress and reduces the chances of sagging or mattress dipping, which helps to increase the durability of your mattress. If you don’t turn your mattress and keep sleeping in the same position each night, you’ll find that settlement occurs to the frequently used part of the mattress.
Tip 3: Layer a mattress protector as extra protection.
A mattress protector is highly recommended to be used especially on your brand new mattress. It could prevent most of the sweat and dead skin as well as dust or dirt from staining the mattress. Besides, a mattress protector can be washed or disposed of if necessary after periods of wear. Using a mattress protector helps extend the overall life of your mattress.
Tip 4: Avoid standing or jumping onto the mattress.
Exerting heavy pressure on any particular area of the mattress may cause damage to the pad and the spring coils. You and your kids should avoid standing on your mattress, bending your mattress and kneeling on the edges. If you have a habit of sitting on your mattress, try to sit in a different spot every time to prevent your mattress from sagging in these spots.
Tip 5: Avoid liquids and heat source.
Refrain from ironing clothes or placing any heat source on mattress to prevent damage. Also, do not apply any form of liquid to the mattress cover.
It’s easy to ensure you get the most out of your mattress
by spending a little bit of time each month looking after it.
That way you’ll maximize the health of your mattress and have
more years of good night’s sleep!
