Once you buy a new bed, of course you want this bed always comfortable in a long time. I have good tips to make your bed remain durable and long lasting.
- Read the manual book from the manufacture after you bought a new bed. This is about how to maintenance this bed well. After the bed arrived at home, immediately open the wrapping of the bed with the purpose the bed and mattress does not become damp, moldy and rotten.
- Every two weeks after you bought this bed which made by spring, you should rotate and flip the mattress. With the purpose to condense the contents of the mattress and make the mattress to be flat in each section. For the older beds, can be done once a month. You don’t need this if you use a foam mattress such as latex.
- Do not get used to bend and roll up the mattress, especially a mattress made of by foam or contain cotton. Because it will damage the surface of the mattress.
- Try to open the bed cover each day every 30 minutes. With the purpose to get fresh air circulation and the moisture which absorbed by the bed will evaporated.
- Avoid children who like to jump on the bed because it will damage the surface of the mattress. I know this is happen many times, but better give them understanding. I believe they will obey us as a parent.
- Don’t use a bed on the same side constantly, because it will damage the surface of the bed. For example, you often sit or sleep only in one side.
