When you visit The Mattress Store, you are doing more than choosing a mattress. You are investing in the quality of your sleep. You will want to protect your investment, and the experts at The Mattress Store can tell you how.
Why Care about Mattress Care
Proper mattress care allows you to get the most from your mattress investment. You get the best performance and longest useful life, meaning the money you invest in your mattress goes farther.
On average, mattresses are expected to last about 10 years—that’s the standard manufacturer warranty on mattresses from the top brands we carry. You may be able to extend the life of your mattress by keeping contaminants that break down the support materials—e.g., body oils, skin, dirt, hair—out of the mattress.
How to Care for Your Mattress
Caring for your mattress is actually very simple. All you need to do is cover it with a mattress protector. Mattress protectors seal your mattress against a range of contaminants, including:
- Bed bugs
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Water-based stains
Most mattress protectors are machine washable for easy care.
Please note: vacuuming your mattress to remove contaminants is ineffective. Vacuum suction is not strong enough to remove fine particles from deep within the mattress construction, and that’s where they pose the most threat to the support materials.
In the event that your mattress ever needs to be placed in storage, keep it protected and make sure it lays flat. This will preserve the integrity of the inner construction so that you get the same support even after an extended period of disuse.
