Looking after a memory foam mattress

Written by The Foam Factory

There are various types and brands of memory foam mattresses available. However, they all have one thing in common: they are only foam. They are most often a combination of memory foam and polyurethane foam. Here are some tips on looking after and getting the most from your foam mattress.


Firm support is important for any mattress, but is even more important for foam mattresses. In addition, these mattresses require breathability. Ideally, a firm and slatted surface is what you are looking for. Whatever supports the mattress, make sure that it can take the weight of the mattress and the sleepers.


Another factor that affects the comfort and lifetime of a mattress is the amount of dirt. The first step to ensuring a better sleeping environment is to use a mattress protector that is both water-proof and resistant to dust. The next is to use hypoallergenic pillows. Finally, regularly vacuum the bed with a HEPA filter. We shed skin and sweat every night, and we can end up with millions and millions of dust mites


Unlike an ordinary mattress, a memory foam mattress does not require flipping. However, the memory foam will benefit from regular rotation. This reduces impressions and allows for even wear and tear. Get the most out of your mattress with a 180 degree rotation every six months.


Accidents happen, even for the most careful people. The important thing here is to address the issue as quickly as possible. When something spills, take of it immediately according to the care instructions provided by the manufacturer.
