Keeping The Beds In Your House Like New - Tips For Protecting Your Mattresses

Apr 10, 2008
Getting a new bed is a big investment, and now that you have splurged and gotten a new mattress, a new bed frame, sheets and everything else that you need, you are going to want to make sure that you treat it right. Here are some bed care tips that will make sure your investment is looking as new as possible for as long as possible.

The most important tip to remember is to always keep sheets and blankets on all of your beds. You may feel that you are too tired to slip a pair of sheets on after washing and drying the sheets on a sunny summer's day and you are already ready for bed when you realize that you left the sheets hanging on the clothesline in the back yard. You are going to want to resist the urge to be lazy and sleep on the bed without sheets and blankets, because you are going to end up getting the oil and dirt from your body on your mattress. Keeping all of your beds nice and clean is going to be one of the most important steps to keeping it looking good.

Another thing you are going to want to make sure to do is to keep liquids away from your beds. Sure, you may like to drink a cup of coffee while reading the Sunday newspaper or enjoy popcorn and cola on a Friday night, but making sure that your bed stays dry is very important because any moisture that gets onto your mattress can turn the whole bed moldy. If you are going to be doing any drinking in bed, make sure that you get a waterproof cover for your bed, which will keep the mattress protected from spills.

Another important tip for keeping your bed looking nice is to make sure that you always use a bed frame. By putting your box spring or your mattress directly or floor, it is going to get worn out a lot faster and you may even notice that it doesn't give you the support that you need. Having a frame is almost as important as having a box spring, and having a box spring is almost as important as having a good mattress. All three components are essential for having comfortable beds.

You are also going to want to remember to consider whether or not you are going to get a cover or going to use any other type of padding for your new bed. When buying a new mattress, you really shouldn't need to purchase extra padding for it, and if you want an extra soft bed, you should definitely buy one that is made to be soft and plush. By adding extra padding to it, you are going to get more comfort, but it's also important to buy the right mattress the first time.

Finding the perfect bed can be difficult, especially if you are going shopping with your spouse and you have different tastes or sleeping habits. Taking care of your bed is going to be a lot easier than finding the perfect mattress, and by taking a little time to make sure you get everything right and keep everything clean and in shape you are definitely going to be able to protect your investment.
