So you’ve just purchased a new mattress. The excitement of sleeping in your new bed is likely welling up! The chances are high that you’ve purchased new sheets for it, maybe a headboard and frame, and you’re ready to get back to bed the moment that you wake up in the morning. With that being said, mattresses are a huge investment, and they need to be taken care of. In today’s blog post, the team at Mattress Clearance Center of Boone is going to go over a few of the things that you can do to ensure your investment lasts for years to come. 

Change Your Sheets Regularly

It may come as a surprise that changing your sheets on a regular basis can do more than leave you feeling clean and cozy at night, but it can. Clean sheets ensure that the mattress itself remains clean. For many, it’s suggested that sheets are changed at least once a week. This will minimize the amount of dead skin, sweat, and oils that our body naturally releases through the night. 

Keep It Dry

You want to keep your mattress as dry as possible. Aside from moisture staining your mattress, moisture in your mattress can lead to mold and mildew growing in your bed — not an ideal situation. Whether it’s spilled water or a child that’s wet the bed, all forms of moisture can lead to a damaged mattress. To avoid the chances of this happening to a mattress that you’ve purchased, invest in a mattress cover that is waterproof. This cover will catch any liquids before they ever penetrate the mattress. 

Vacuum Your Mattress

As silly as it may sound, vacuuming your mattress is one of the many things that you can do to help maintain the quality and cleanliness of your mattress. We mentioned it earlier, but dead skin cells and dust are common in mattresses; they’re also one of the reasons that you absolutely want to make time to vacuum your mattress regularly. When you skip over this method of cleaning your mattress, the dead skin cells and dust build up, leaving your mattress smelling bad and looking worse. With that in mind, if you’re going to be washing your sheets once a week, take this time and vacuum your mattress while they’re in the wash. Now you’ve got a nice clean mattress to put fresh sheets on.
