How to Protect Your New Mattress
A memory foam mattress is quite different from a regular mattress. In addition to being more expensive, a memory foam offers health benefits to those who are suffering from back pain.
Because you’ve invested a lot of money in it, it’s important that you know how to take care of it so it’ll last longer. But, is there a proper way to maintain it?
To make it last longer, it’s essential that you put a certain internal support structure. Doing it this way will avoid your mattress to stretch or sag in the middle.
You’re not only protecting the mattress but you’re also adding height to your bed. With that being said, it’ll be easier for you to get out of it. Most memory foam beds have bed springs. But if they don’t, you can have them added for an extra charge.
Another thing to consider is air circulation around the bed. This type of foam is known for absorbing your body heat and as a result you can easily transform this bed into a sauna. If you don’t want that, you need to make sure that the foam has enough air circulation to make yourself comfortable while lying on it.
You also need to cover your memory foam mattress, even though it doesn’t absorb liquid as much as an ordinary bed. Bear in mind that certain liquid can still stain the foam. For that reason, it’s essential that you purchase a cover for the mattress and keep it on all the time. But don’t use plastic cover as it’ll only make the bed too hot.
Vacuuming or treating it more advanced is also necessary, to make sure that it is clean all the time. This will also remove all dust mites and flakes from the bed.
For proper maintenance, consult the guidelines provided by your memory foam mattress’ manufacturer.
