Take Care of your Mattresses this Monsoon!

The rains are here, cooling the earth and creating an ambient temperature, perfect for good sleep. Despite the pitter patter in the background at night, this welcome weather is supposed to soothe us into better sleep. There are many apps in fact with the sound of rain for those who have problems falling asleep. But this is one time, you can enjoy the natural sound of rains as you slide deeper into a blissful state.

However we must take extra care of our mattresses as with this weather there is always risk of dampness. From furniture to mattresses, they all run some risk of getting musty and worn out. And you don’t want that to happen to your precious investment!

Protect your mattress by:

1) Airing it once a month. Alternatively, you could sprinkle some baking soda on it and keep on for minimum 15 minutes for it to absorb any moisture. You could also vacuum clean it.

2) Make sure you change sheets more often.

3) Open the windows and air the room when the sun is out.

4) If you decide to spray on any freshener, ensure you don’t spray so much that the inside padding gets affected.

5) Use a mattress cover. These can help to protect against dust mites and other allergens and are easily removable and washable. It will also reduce the need to vacuum the mattress.

6) Invest in a mattress pad. These are placed over the mattress cover and under the sheet of the bed. In addition to improving comfort, they also provide an additional barrier between you and the mattress and can be easily removed and laundered. If you have young children, using a water resistant mattress pad is especially important.

7) Wash bedding and mattress covers frequently in hot water to kill dust mites. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar to remove any odors and soften the sheets.

8) Flip your mattress about every 1-3 months – this includes both rotating it and flipping it over. This allows for more even wear and tear of your mattress and can help prolong the life of your mattress.
