New Mattress, New You? Getting into the Habit of Mattress Care
So, you just bought a new Mattress Firm mattress — congratulations! Your new purchase will provide you with a good night's sleep for years to come. Now that you have your new bed, you'll want to take care of it as best as possible so that you get the most out of it. Below are a few helpful tips to make sure your mattress stays in tiptop shape for as long as possible.
Breaking Your Mattress In
Keep in mind that your new bed may feel stiff for a couple weeks after it gets delivered. Fear not — this is normal! Make sure to allow enough time (30-90 days) to let your mattress settle in. And don't forget to try some of our tips to speed up the break-in process.
Choose The Right Accessories
Mattress toppers, pillows, protectors, oh my! There are lots of different accessories that can help enhance your sleep. First, determine your sleep style, and what you need to feel comfortable at night before looking into what products might be best for you. If you have questions, we can help! Visit us at any of the Mattress Firm locations near you.
Another best practice for bedding accessories is knowing when to replace them.
Typically, pillows should only be used for upwards of two years, while other accessories have a longer lifespan. Check with the sales associates to make sure you're getting the best use out of your accessories and retire them when necessary to help you get your best night's sleep!
Keep It Clean
Inevitably, your Mattress Firm mattress will accrue dirty dust and stains over time. It's best to be proactive and clean any stains as they happen to make sure they don't build up. There are many ways to do this, but check out our tips for ridding dust mites, or even just giving your bed a nice refresh.
Another helpful way to keep your bed clean is utilizing a mattress protector. These are great at keeping your bed water proof and eliminating the possibility of stains from liquids or potential mishaps.
Rotate Your Mattress Periodically
Did you know that you don't need to flip your mattress anymore? Woohoo, no Mattress Firm complaints here! All you have to do now is rotate it! Mattresses made after 2000 are typically one-sided, which eliminates the need to do the dreaded mattress flip. Increase the lifespan of your mattress by rotating it periodically.
Allergies can be very disruptive to your sleep, so don't let them get the best of your nights. Washing your linens in hot water, using protective, hypo-allergenic covers for mattresses and pillows, and avoiding exposure to allergens can all help rid your bed of allergies.
Now that you've got your brand new mattress, you're on your way to a great night's sleep! Keep these tips in mind so that your mattress has a good and long life.
