After sleepless nights, constant turning around and reaching for the best sleeping position, appearance of the back and neck pain, as well as continuous exhaustion are the most common problems that in most cases we blame our mattress we sleep on. Allergies to the mites that live and reproduce in the mattress are an increasingly common health problem, and this problem mainly contributes to the development of asthma. Anyone who suffers from dust and dust allergies should invest in a quality natural latex mattress or those with memory foam or gel. It would be beneficial if you rotate your mattress periodically to maintain its load-bearing capacity, as well as to support you as much as possible. There is no standard data on what makes a bed soft or hard. A man with high weight may consider the mattress too tough, while the same mattress will be too soft for someone who is maybe underweight. For this reason, you must spend ten to twenty minutes on a mattress before you decide to buy it. Lying down is the best option so that you can really see and feel it, so your spine and all other requirements can fit its characteristics.
To extend the full life of a mattress and to retain its fundamental characteristics, you must rotate it from time to time. There are four rotation modes. One way is to leave on the same face and to switch to the other side. That means the side where your hear were so far is going to the side where were your feet until now. Another way is to switch the faces of the mattress, the side where you were sleeping is going to be leaning on the bed itself. Other two ways are combinations of the above. Rotating the mattress 180 degrees is recommended for single-sided mattresses. It is also possible to turn and rotate the bed at the same time with the aim of prolonging the proper effect of the mattress on your body. This reduces the pressure on the mattress and evens it out. It is recommended to rotate the mattress every three months. In addition to periodically rotating the mattress, it is also necessary to ventilate, which is very important for sleeping hygiene and keeping the mattress dry. Avoid using your mattress as a trampoline when young children are in the room. This is hardly feasible given that everyone knows that before they go to bed, every little kid consumes excess energy, which way is better than jumping on the bed, it is fun and practical. If you need to extend the life of your mattress, make sure your child does not use the bed as a trampoline.
Turning and rotating your mattress is not the only way that can extend its life. So, in addition to regular rotation, every three months, preventing children from jumping on it, some measures need to be introduced. Maintaining and cleaning your mattress is essential for healthy and quality sleep. The bed is exposed daily to dust, mites, sweat, dead skin cells, food debris and spills of various liquids. Therefore, it is very important to pay more attention to its cleanliness.
Changing linens regularly is the first prerequisite for maintaining mattress hygiene. Replace bedding at least once every two weeks, pillow more often. It is also vital that the blankets and pillows are regularly washed and ventilated, so be sure to ventilate the mattress as well. Remove the mattress, blankets and pillows, open the window and allow a few hours for everything to air correctly.
It is crucial to vacuum your mattress once in a month. Vacuuming will collect all dust, dead skin, mites and everything else what is laying on your bed.
Try to remove stains as soon as you notice them. Pour lukewarm water into the container, add some detergent to the water, then gently wipe the stain with a sponge. You can get rid of stains and odours using baking soda. It will help if you sprinkle it on the bed. Allow the baking soda to lay down for half an hour, and then you can use the vacuum to vacuum the mattress. If you like, after applying the soda, you can soak up your bed with your favourite essential oil.
If your mattress has a removable and washable cover, take it off and wash it from time to time. Keep in mind the label that contains the liner maintenance tags. Mostly washable covers are at 30 ° C and 40 ° C. We recommend drying the sheets in the fresh air as the covers get clogged up in the dryer, which will cause problems in installing them on the mattress.
If you are among those people who think their mattress is clean because you regularly wash your bedding, then you should keep the following information in mind. Up to two hundred grams of dust is hidden in just one mattress. In that dust, there are about one and a half grams of skin scales that a person discharges at night. Various microorganisms, also up to one and a half deciliter of sweat that a person releases overnight, and most of it are absorbed into the mattress as well as various fungi and bed bugs. So, do you even now consider your bed to be clean just because you regularly wash your sheets?
How long your mattress will last until you have to change it depends on the quality itself above all. The higher the quality, the longer the life. Then, if a heavy person sleeps on it, the mattress will wear out faster. Night sweating is also an essential factor because it affects the wear of the mattress that goes over the top. And at the very end. maintenance is crucial. If you pay enough attention to your bed, it will return you with better quality and more beauty sleep. Some mattresses are thicker some thinner, but both types require all of the above.
So, rotate your mattress once every three months, vacuum it once a month, remove any stain after you notice it, wash your bedding regularly, ventilate your room and your bed and there will be no reason to worry.
