Keeping your mattress in good shape is essential to securing those 8-a-night, but it isn’t as difficult as you may think, so here are our tips for maintaining a healthy, happy mattress.
N.B. Memory foam is treated with a fire retardant spray. If you purchase an all-foam mattress or one that contains a layer of memory foam, you may notice a slight chemical odour. If so, simply leave your mattress to air in a ventilated room and the odour will dissipate within a matter of days.
Allow your bed to breathe - Before making your bed each morning, pull back your sheets to allow your bed and mattress to breathe for 20 minutes. This technique will ventilate the mattress, allowing excess moisture to evaporate.
Ban bouncing - In order to keep your mattress looking and feeling its best, avoid jumping on your bed or sitting on the edge. This will prevent it from losing its shape, keeping it at its most comfortable.
