At Millbrook Beds, we know just how important your mattress and bed actually are. We also know that an investment, such as a mattress, should be taken care of and made to last, which is why we offer beds made of the highest quality materials. But remember, even the best mattresses require regular maintenance, so protect your investment and follow these simple tips.
Regardless of what type of mattress you have, you will need to take basic precautions to ensure that you get the longest life possible out of it. This means that you should protect your mattress with a mattress pad or cover. The mattress pad or cover should be cleaned when you change the bedding.
It is also a good idea to let the mattress air out. You can air out your mattress on a daily basis by simply throwing back the covers for about 20 minutes every morning. This will allow body moisture to evaporate.
Rotating your mattress every three months is essential so that it wears evenly. Spring mattresses will need to be rotated from top to toe and from side to side. Memory foam mattresses should be turned from top to toe. When you rotate your mattress it is also the perfect time to vacuum it ? be sure to use the upholstery attachment.
Lastly, it is a good idea to avoid getting your mattress wet or too messy, however we know that sometimes accidents just cannot be avoided. If you do need to spot clean the mattress, do so with a gentle detergent and water. Never soak the mattress. Solvent-based cleansers can damage memory foam mattresses.
