Mattress care is something that we need to incorporate in our daily chores. We may not notice it or we may take advantage of the fact that we actually use mattress our mattresses for about a third of our entire lives. Cool, isn’t it? Well, it is easy to ignore the fact that we only use our mattresses when we sleep but we should not.

It is pretty easy to give ample time taking care of our appliances such as the television, the laptop, even our washing machine and refrigerator, but for some mattress delivery reason, we do not do the same with the mattresses. Well, here’s news for you. The mattress is where you retire after a restless day. Doesn’t that make your mattress more important than all the other things in your house?

There are a few things you need to remember in taking care of your mattress. These are quite easy actually if you only give actual time for it. Here they are, some basic do’s and dont’s on how to take care of your mattress.

1. Do buy a mattress cover to protect your mattress from dust

While there’s no problem in choosing to regularly dust the top of your mattress (using a feather duster or a vacuum cleaner), you can also save time on doing this by buying a cover for your mattress. Not only will a mattress cover or topper provide you additional comfort and warmth, it will also protect your mattress from wear and tear. A mattress cover can also protect you from dust, dirt and allergens!

A good mattress topper or cover is something that is waterproof. It works best with stains because once you spilled something on the mattress, you will only have to wipe it with a damp cloth. You also have to make sure it is durable and can endure pressure and it should also be comfortable. You would not like to be sleeping on an uncomfortable surface, do you?

The mattress topper or cover that you would choose should be easily removable as well as washable. You may choose to have it regularly in the laundry basket. This way, you can be assured that the mattress you are sleeping on is really clean and safe. Make sure to dry it thoroughly though before replacing it.

2. Don’t jump up and down your mattresses

A mattress is a mattress, not a trampoline. This is especially true for kids. Somehow, the softness and bounce of a mattress entices us to jump up and down on it, just to get that, um, adrenaline fix? Anyway, a mattress, no matter how durable it is advertised to be, cannot last long in a household like that. Because it is a mattress.

While most mattresses sag after a while of being used, do not expect this mattress to last even a short time if it is constantly abused. Remember, for you to receive a good service, you must also keep in mind to use it well. If not, you may end up not just with a sagging mattress but a broken frame as well.
