Here are our top tips on how to make your mattress last longer:
Take advantage of the Sleep Trial Period
Direct Be offers a 100 Night Sleep Trial. Take this time to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the feel of your new mattress. Most often, you will notice any problems with a mattress during this time. If you get it right from the start, you will be satisfied with your mattress for longer, not wanting to replace it.
Flip the Mattress
One of the easiest and ways to help alleviate some pressure from the bed is by flipping it once every few months (if you bought a flippable mattress). This way, the springs on one side will get to relax while the other ones arebeing used. Keep in mind that this will only work with a mattress that can be used on both sides.
Give Your Mattress a Sun Bath
Giving your mattress a couple of hours of sunlight a couple of times a year can help to relax the springs and kill off all the bacteria, germ, and mold. It’s also great for getting rid of undesirable odors.
Add a Mattress Topper
Adding another layer of mattress toppers such as memory foam or some sort of cushioning can help to maintain the springs while giving you maximum comfort.
Replace Mattress Layers If your bed is made of multiple layers, you can take off the parts that have deteriorated, replacing them with new ones to keep the mattress in the best shape for a longer time.
Replace the Box Spring
While mattress springs are typically quite durable, you still need to take care of them to keep them in the best condition that will support your spine for years to come. You may want to shift your starting sleep position around once in a while to distribute the workload throughout the bed. If all things fail, you can replace the entire box spring set to keep it in the best condition.
Keep the Bedroom Temperature Cool
One final thing to remember is that mattresses typically don’t last as long when stored a warm room, so it’s a good idea to keep your bedroom slightly cooler than the rest of the house, if possible.
