Proper support is essential for getting a night of recuperative rest, and a new mattress is an investment in your quality and comfort of sleep. To keep it in good condition, keep a few mattress care tips in mind.
After purchasing a new mattress or bed, it’s important for it to be correctly assembled. If installed incorrectly, it’s possible that your new mattress or sleep set could be damaged or be uncomfortable to sleep on. A new mattress will sometimes have an odor when it is first unpacked. Give your new mattress a few hours to air out before adding your bedding and any smells should dissipate quickly.
A supportive bed frame is necessary for keeping your mattress in good condition. If your bed is queen or king-sized, be sure that the frame has strong support in the center to prevent your mattress from sagging, which could cause damage to your mattress and discomfort when sleeping. A high-quality, washable mattress pad is a smart investment to help keep your mattress in good condition. It will prevent staining to the mattress fabric and you can wash it along with your bedding, which will help keep your sleep set fresh.
Using a mattress pad will help keep your mattress clean, but if you are still concerned about cleanliness, avoid using dry cleaning products on your mattress which can damage the outer fabric or filling. Instead, vacuuming is the recommended solution for cleaning your mattress. If your mattress is stained, be sure to use only a mild soap, and always avoid getting your mattress wet. To get the longest lifespan out of your mattress, rotate it every three to four months, flipping it over top-to-bottom as well as lengthwise.
