Sweet Dreams! Mattress Care 101: How to Maintain Your Purchase for Years of Comfort

Published on
March 15, 2024

A good mattress is an investment in your comfort and health. Proper care ensures that your bed provides you with the support and comfort you need for years; caring for it is essential. At Countrytime Furniture, we understand the importance of mattress care, so we’ve put together this guide to help you maintain yours and keep it in top condition.

Rotate Seasonally

One of the most critical steps in bed care is to rotate your mattress seasonally. Rotating helps to ensure even wear and prolong its lifespan. Most mattresses should be rotated every three to six months, but checking the manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific item is a good idea.

To rotate, turn it 180 degrees so the head is at the foot of the bed. If you have a two-sided mattress, you can flip it over so that the side on the bottom is now on the top. Rotating and flipping will help prevent sagging and indentations and ensure you get the most out of your purchase.

Use a Cover

Another essential step in bed care is to use a mattress cover. A cover helps to protect your mattress from spills, stains, and dust mites, which can all contribute to deterioration. At Countrytime Furniture, we carry the Excelsior Stay Cool Premium Protector.

The Excelsior Stay Cool Premium Protector offers an easy zip-on, zip-off topper, providing 5-sided protection that is breathable and impermeable. It includes Teflon and silver antibacterial treatment for healthier sleep and Dri Wick quilted technology to ensure a cool, comfortable sleep. The waterproof design also protects from spills and stains, helping to prolong its lifespan.

Washing and Caring for Your Mattress Cover

Ensure your cover stays clean and fresh through a regular wash schedule. The Excelsior Stay Cool Premium Protector is machine washable, making it easy to care for. Wash the cover on the gentle cycle with a mild detergent, and air dry or tumble dry on a low heat setting.

A Little Care Goes a Long Way

Taking the time to care for your mattress correctly ensures that it provides you with years of comfort and support. By rotating seasonally and using a cover like the Excelsior Stay Cool Premium Protector, you can extend the life of your mattress and enjoy a better night’s sleep.
