How to Keep Your Mattress Looking and Feeling Like New

Last updated 6 years ago

Everyone loves the feel of a brand-new mattress and wants to preserve that high level of cushioned comfort for as long as possible. With proper care, you can maintain your mattress’ condition and continue to enjoy that new-mattress feeling even after years of use. This guide will help you give your mattress the care it needs:

Use a Mattress Pad Covering your mattress with a protective barrier keeps it clean from natural body oils and other staining substances that can decrease its lifespan. The simple addition of a pad can add years to your mattress. About once a month, you should remove the pad and vacuum the mattress to get rid of any hair, pet dander, dust, or other particles that have found their way to the surface. This will keep your mattress clean and ready for use.

Remember to Flip The best way to prevent uneven wear and tear on your bed is to consistently flip and rotate the mattress. At least four times a year, switch up the position of your bed to prevent lumps and sagging. This will keep your mattress super-supportive and allow you to get comfortable sleep each night.

Avoid Exposure to Water Do not put wet towels or other damp items onto the bed; also avoid drinking in bed. When a mattress gets wet, it is difficult to dry. Exposure to moisture can leave a musty smell on your mattress. If your bed does get wet, take it outside to air dry in the sun for a few hours.

With the huge selection of high-quality mattresses available at Mattress Direct, it is easy to keep your bed looking and feeling like new. We bring great brands like the Dr. Breus and Tempur-Pedic mattresses directly to St. Louis so you can improve the way you sleep. Visit our website or call (314) 549-8496 to learn more.
