Some mattresses are not firm enough so it slides whenever one makes use of them. Inadequate support can make a bed slide. In other words, the platform a bed is placed can sometimes lead to sliding especially when a bed is not firmly placed or space, where the bed is kept, is loosened.
When we sleep we tend to toss and turn towards different directions so placing your mattress in a firm space is safer to avoid slipping off the bed. This is common for kids when they sleep. A sagging or old mattress may slide off the bed case as it is worn out already. Using a good mattress is also key to prevent your bed from sliding.
Once a mattress is worn out it is better to replace it with a new one. Many people do not know when to change their mattresses. Waking up numb or tired can be a sign that your bed needs a replacement. It could also be linked to having allergies; for instance, frequent sneezing while sleeping due to dust from the mattress could be a sign that your mattress needs a replacement.
A mattress that has been used for 6-7years also needs to be replaced with a new one especially if you notice it has become flat and uncomfortable. Furthermore, if you find it hard to sleep due to the saggy condition of the mattress, it is due for replacement.
Also, if you experience body pains as a result of tossing and turning on the bed, it’s high time you replaced your mattress. Taking care of your mattress will make it last longer. During Summer, we tend to sweat out while sleeping most especially when there is no adequate ventilation.
For instance, in a room with just a window, it will be difficult for air to come in when there is heat. Giving the mattress some air daily will allow body moisture to evaporate out to increase the lifespan.
A mattress has two sides for dual-use, turning your mattress to another side every week will allow the upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly to prevent tossing and turning while sleeping.
Use a washable cover for the mattress to avoid stains and dust allergy. Clean your mattress every four to six months to remove stains and dust. Using a vacuum cleaner is advisable for allergies prevention.
