Owning a great Memory foam mattress isn’t all about keeping your mattress on your bed and then sleeping on it day and night, you need to take special care of it to ensure that it doesn’t get damaged soon.
A proper maintenance and cleaning procedure could really help in extending your memory foam mattress’ life and could also ensure that you sleep in a clean and healthy environment.
Here are a few ways to keep your Memory foam mattress healthy for a little longer:
Vacuum it regularly
One of the most important things one must do to keep their memory foam mattress clean and healthy is to ensure that it is not covered in dust or dirt. A lot of times, your memory foam mattress will also be covered in your pet’s or your family’s hair and skin cells which can be removed with the help of a vacuum cleaner. Just use a handheld vacuum and clean all the hair, dust and skin cells that are lying around on your mattress.
Flip it occasionally
Make sure that you flip or rotate your memory foam mattress in every few months to avoid it wearing down from one side. You can flip the mattress from the head to the foot and then back to foot again every once in 6 months, this way the entire mattress will wear consistently and you would be able to avoid sagging for a little while longer.
Remove the stains
One of the most common problems with a memory foam mattress is that it stains too quickly. If you spill some colored drink on your mattress, then a stain will be formed on the mattress which will make your mattress look ugly and will damage the mattress’ foam.
Make sure that you don’t use a harsh chemical to get rid of the stain as this could further damage your mattress, instead, use a diluted mild detergent and a washcloth and rub the stain in a circular motion to get rid of it.
You can also use a little baking soda on the stain to absorb the water from it and remove the bad odor. Once you have done this, you can use a handheld vacuum to remove the baking soda particles.
Keep it in the sun
Another great way to extend the life of your mattress is by drying your memory foam mattress in the sunlight to dry it naturally and avoid the moisture from getting trapped in the foam. This will also disinfect the mattress and make it safe for use again.
Use a mattress cover
One of the best ways to take care of your memory foam mattress is by using a cover so that you just need to clean the cover and the mattress will be safe from all the stains and dirt.
This way you can just wash your mattress cover once in a week and keep your mattress safe from all the allergens that are available in the air.
