Good Housekeeping: How To Rotate A Mattress

The Mountain Life Team Blogger March 17, 2009

                             

If you’re not rotating your mattress every 3 months, you may be shortening its lifespan.  Constant nightly pressure can “wear out” the areas on which you sleep, creating in-bed divots and reducing your sleeping comfort.

The ExpertVillage.com video above — “How To Flip a Mattress” — is pretty self-explanatory.  But there’s a few other steps you can take to protect your bed and your health.

First, consider the use of a mattress cover.  A mattress cover protects against spills and stains and can stop liquids from dripping inside of the mattress itself. Mattress covers are marked down 43% at Amazon.com right now and can be purchased for cheap at Bed Bath and Beyond, too. 

Second, each time you change your sheets, remember to vacuum the mattress surface.  A thorough cleaning will reduce the number of allergens and mites living on your bed, promoting better health hygiene.

And lastly, remember to occasionally apply an upholstery-grade cleaner to your mattress for stubborn stains or soilage.  Using this particular type of cleaner is important because the product is meant to be near human skin.  This is different from, say, carpet cleaner.

A good mattress can be expensive.  Extending its usable life is not.

If you are looking to Buy one of our Homes or Cabins For Sale In Blue Ridge Georgia, I would appreciate the opportunity to offer you additional information or any Real Estate Advice that you might need. And should you end up with that New North Georgia Mountain Home or Cabin, and need a good mattress, I know just the person to go and see. I would be more than happy to set up an appointment with my Mom, Laverne Lariscy. She is one of the Top Sales Associates at Town & Country Furniture in Blue Ridge, GA. I hope to hear from you soon.

Make it a GREAT day!

  1. Thank you for writing about this blog about sleep and how to rotate your mattress. I really enjoyed it. One note always check with the manufacture of your mattresses before using any chemicals. I also liked the comment that you shoud use a mattress pad to protect your mattress and to reduce allergies.

  2. I especially like the recommendation to remember to use cleaners that can be near the human face. Sometimes, it is important to point out considerations that might not otherwise be entertained.
