How to Care for Your Foam Mattress

Having a good night’s sleep is essential to our overall health and wellbeing. If you are looking to upgrade your sleeping experience, you might want to consider investing in a memory foam mattress topper. Memory foam is designed to contour to your body while providing extra cushioning, making it a great option for anyone who wants to increase their comfort level while sleeping. In this blog post, we will be discussing how to properly care for your memory foam mattress topper so that you can get the most out of your investment. Read on to learn more!

Vacuum regularly

Regularly vacuuming your pocket spring mattress will help you remove dust mites and other debris that can cause allergies. Dust is a common allergen, so keeping your mattress clean is important. Remove any visible stains by soaking them with warm water and soap, then blotting them with a clean cloth until the stain disappears. Don’t use harsh chemicals or scrubbing as this could cause damage to the surface of the foam.

Use a mild detergent

Using a  mild detergent is an easy way to keep your foam mattress clean. All you have to do is dampen the stain with a small amount of detergent, then rub in circular motions until the detergent is completely soaked in. Let it sit on the stain for about five minutes before blotting it dry with paper towels. Repeat if needed.

Avoid using harsh chemicals

Avoid the use of harsh chemicals, such as bleach and ammonia, when cleaning your mattress. These chemicals can break down the foam, making it less supportive and more likely to develop wear patterns over time. Instead, use mild soap or dishwashing liquid diluted with water. Do not scrub your mattress as this can create friction on the foam. Once you have cleaned it, dry it thoroughly with a clean towel before putting it back on your bed frame. If there are any stains left behind after cleaning, treat them with an appropriate stain remover and then re-clean before drying.

Don’t soak or saturate the mattress

Soaking or saturating the mattress will cause it to deteriorate much faster. If you need to remove a spot or spill, use a clean, damp cloth and blot the spot. Don’t scrub at the stain. Also, avoid using chemicals like carpet cleaner on your mattress because these can have harsh chemicals that might irritate your skin or pollute the air in your home. Instead, vacuum regularly and consider using a mattress cover (if you don’t already have one). It is also important to know how often you should replace your mattress because each person’s needs are different. For example, if you weigh over 250 pounds then it is recommended that you replace your mattress every five years (or sooner) because those who weigh more often experience sagging sooner than lighter-weight people do.
