Queen Size Beds: Keeping Your Bed Good As New



Investing in a good quality queen size bed and mattress is the first step for those looking for a comfy and spacious bed. Keeping your mattress as good as new requires a little effort on your part. Experts tell us that buying beds, no matter the size, from kids’ beds to single beds to larger sizes such as double and queen size beds, with proper consultation and thought, have significant bearing on our physical and mental health. But it does not stop there! Maintaining the condition of your bed and mattress to ensure consistently good rest is equally important.


An effective way to protect your mattress is to use a washable mattress cover, which keeps your mattress free from stains. Mattress covers are also conveniently available for all size bed mattresses. A supportive bed frame for your queen size bed should ideally feature slats that will prevent the mattress from sagging in the middle. Pocket and coil sprung mattresses should be turned at least once every six months. The recommended method is to alternate the turning of the mattress from end to end and from side to side. This helps in the mattress maintaining its orthopaedic properties.


Bed bugs are unwanted ‘guests’ that reduce the lifespan of your queen size bed mattress. One way to eliminate bed bugs and dust mites from mattresses, and to keep them perfectly clean and healthy, is to vacuum it regularly. Washing bedding at a high temperature is another effective way to keeping your mattress bug free.


Unhealthy habits such as smoking may reduce the lifespan of your mattress which of-course do not take kindly to fire and water. Avoid smoking while on your bed as it is a fire hazard; drinks or wet towels should also stay far away. In the event of the mattress getting wet, the best possible solution is let it dry out in the sun. The powerful rays of the sun are effective in ridding the mattress of any signs of mildew..


Once you have purchased the ideal bed and mattress you can protect your investment by ensuring basic maintenance dos and don’ts. This will lengthen the lifespan of your queen size bed mattress and provide you with many nights of peaceful sleep.
