Your hardworking mattress provides you with the comfort that you need for a revitalising night’s sleep. Your mattress goes through wear and tear as you use it every night, or even during the day when you watch your favourite television show or browse the internet.
Considering its price and how important it is for your home, it’s crucial to take care of your mattress and keep it in good shape for years to come.
Have you ever flipped your mattress at least once since you bought it? What do you do to keep it clean? Do you change your sheets often?
Creating a simple mattress cleaning habit can go a long way toward preserving the quality of your mattress.
If you plan to start now, here are some ways to take care of your mattress.
When you buy a new mattress in Singapore, make sure that you also buy a bed frame with the right support and enough slats. A good bed frame should be breathable and long-lasting enough to prevent your mattress from sagging prematurely.
The right mattress foundation is also important to accommodate your chosen mattress type. Box springs are generally appropriate for innerspring mattresses, whereas contouring memory foam mattresses require a firmer foundation.
When purchasing a quality mattress, pair it with a quality mattress protector from the get-go. This is to prevent dust, spills, sweat, and other things from contaminating your mattress. This waterproof mattress guard is not only reliable when it comes to protecting your mattress but is also easier to clean compared to spot treating your bed when there are spills, pee, or blood stains.
What comes into contact with your mattress is detrimental to its quality. Keep your mattress clean and fresh by changing and washing your bed sheets, pillowcases, and blankets at least once a week. If you have allergies or pets at home, it’s important to change your sheets more often.
Depending on the type of your mattress, you can flip it or rotate it every two to six months to even out the pressure that it receives. It can also soften your mattress evenly without creating unnecessary indentations.
Double-sided mattresses can be flipped regularly without affecting your comfort, while single-sided mattresses are recommended to be rotated 180 degrees from head to toe.
If you allow your pets to sleep on your bed, give them a new bed to snuggle in to keep dander and the occasional pee accident from ruining your mattress.
When changing your sheets, also vacuum your mattress with an upholstery attachment to remove dust, dirt, and dead skin cells from the surface. Make sure to clean the crevices of your bed frame while you’re at it.
Aside from vacuuming your mattress every week, it’s also good to deep clean your mattress when needed. Do this by spot-treating spills or stubborn stains with a mild cleaning solution. Deodorise your mattress with baking soda before putting fresh bed sheets back on.
However, remember not to saturate your mattress with any type of liquid when dealing with deep stains, or you’ll end up with a bigger problem.
Eating midnight snacks or drinking coffee in bed is a bad idea because it increases the risk of an accident. Crumbs can stick to the surfaces of your mattress, while liquid stains can penetrate deep into the surface and cause mould buildup. These can also cause unpleasant odours.
Too much pressure can lead to the premature sagging of your bed. Innerspring mattresses are prone to damage when constantly jumped on, while foam mattresses can have indentations. Not to mention, your bed frame can also receive damage. If you don’t want your bed to suddenly drop, no jumping on the bed.
When changing your bed sheets, give your mattress a little time to breathe by opening your curtains and allowing the air to circulate around your room. It’s also good to allow some light to enter your room to tackle excess moisture caused by night sweats and your room’s humidity.
If your current mattress is already saggy, dirty, and overall uncomfortable, it’s best to replace it as soon as possible to prevent further inconvenience. This is because old and saggy mattresses are notorious for causing aches, pains, and sleep deprivation.
Mattresses in general have an average lifespan of 6–10 years, depending on their quality. Some factors to consider to determine whether it’s already time to buy a new mattress or not are:
The quality of your mattress is detrimental to your health, so it’s crucial to always maintain it in good shape. While waiting on your new mattress, you may add some pillows to the saggy part of your mattress or use a mattress topper to somehow even out the feel of your sleeping surface. However, these are not considered permanent solutions to fix an uncomfortable mattress.
When buying a new mattress, it’s important to give it the right care upfront. The first step to preserving the quality of a new mattress is to cover it with a mattress protector. It’s also good to air it out during the break-in period to release the off-gassing smell.
If your new mattress doesn't feel very comfortable during the first few nights, don’t fret. Your body simply needs some time to get used to the feel of your new mattress. Some sleepers even take 30 days to get used to the comfort of their new beds. A long mattress trial period comes in handy in these situations.
Your mattress takes care of your sleep, so it should only be natural to also take care of it. From regular cleaning and rotating to using it the right way, employing the right mattress care can help your sleeping solution to live the best of its lifespan.
