Tips to maintain your new mattress 1024 577 SAMCRO
We know your list of chores and errands is neverending (looking at you laundry!) but there is one item you shouldn’t neglect: cleaning your mattress. The average person spends about a third of their life sleeping and your mattress is a big investment.  Just as you clean your kitchen and bathroom, you also need to care for the area where you lay your head. Dust, mold, and mildew can trigger allergies and asthma, nevermind nastiness like bacteria, bed bugs, and other creepy crawlies that can lurk between the sheets. Most mattresses last about seven to ten years when properly cared for – read on for some brief tips on maintaining yours.

1. Keep your mattress clean and dry – Your mattress will last longer if it is kept dry to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. The experienced BoxDrop team can educate you with cleaning solutions that are safe for both you and your mattress in the event of an inevitable spill or accident. Protect it from moisture and stains by covering it with a mattress cover before putting the sheets on, as well as washing the mattress pad every few weeks. BoxDrop Corpus Christi provides accessories like these and more to help protect your investment.

2. Wash and change your sheets regularly – This should be a no brainer. For most, that means washing the sheets once every two weeks. Clean sheets feel better, smell better, and will prevent a build-up of dead skin. Dust mites feed on the dead skin and dander we produce, and while harmless, their droppings and body fragments can cause colds. Besides, have you seen what they look like? While you can’t completely eliminate dust mites no matter how clean your bed is, the number of dust mites can be reduced with good hygiene practices.

3. No matter what kind of mattress you buy, it will last a lot longer with a sturdy foundation and center supports. Buying both the mattress and foundation with help from the experienced BoxDrop Corpus Christi team will help ensure that the mattress will fit and you’ll have the right amount of support for your mattress.

4. Flip it – Flip two-sided mattresses every three months, unless the manufacturer’s instructions advise against it. Also, rotate all mattresses 180° at the same time as the flip unless they have a designated head and foot. Similarly, lying in the same position every night will tend to leave an impression on your bed. Once your imprint is stamped into the mattress, it will not spring back.
