Ways To Care For An Ageing Mattress

When it comes to a healthy night’s sleep, following these tips can help care for your ageing mattress allowing you to sleep better. The following tips allow to keep your mattress fit for purpose into its later life.

Experts recommend that you replace your mattress every 8 years. This ensures that your mattress is giving you the support you need, is hygienic & provide you with the sleep you need.

Independent experts have found that older mattresses that suffered years of wear and tear significantly lost height & contained a covering of skin cells, dust and fibres. Dust mites in old mattresses can also affect allergies. Have a look at our tips below to ensure you will get eight restful years on your mattress.

 

Regularly Rotate: Make sure you regularly rotate your mattress to vary the areas of prolonged impact when you sleep as your mattress can suffer from dips and compression after long term use. Also check to see if your mattress is turnable & make sure you turn your mattress regularly as well.

Air It: Make sure when you first purchase a mattress, the mattress is aired for around four hours. You should regularly air your mattress throughout it’s lifetime. airing the mattress allows body moisture to evaporate from it. Taking the opportunity to ventilate your mattress by removing bed covers etc for 20 minutes a day and longer periods when you are away from home will preserve freshness.

Use A Mattress Topper/Protector: Using a mattress topper or a protector preserve the condition of your mattress & also add a level of comfort to your bed. For advice on toppers/protectors contact our customer services on 0141 554 0792.

Avoid Sitting On The Edge: Try and avoid sitting on the edge of your mattress for prolonged periods of time. We all do it from time to time, but try finding a chair as sitting on the edge of the mattress can have detrimental effects.

Vacuum: Make sure that you vacuum your mattress every two to three months. This is something that many people don’t do and it can impact the hygiene of your mattress. Make sure to vacuum to ensure that you are getting rid of dead skin cells and dust mites that have gathered on your mattress.

Don’t Fold It/Walk or Jump on It: If you need to move your mattress, make sure you don’t fold it as it can damage the interior and will reduce the quality of the comfort & support of your mattress. As well as folding, don’t walk, stand or jump on your mattress as this will also damage the contents of the mattress.

Mattress Topper or Mattress Protector?

When you buy a mattress, you are sometimes confronted with the questions ‘Do you want a mattress topper?’ and ‘Do you want a mattress protector?’. Very often, if you know what the difference between the two is, the answer would be ‘Yes’ to both questions. But, many people do not know the difference and only choose one of the two – thinking that they are essentially the same thing. This is not true. There is a significant difference between them, and it is important to know if you are planning on buying a mattress.

Mattress Topper or Mattress Protector

What is a Mattress Topper?

A mattress topper acts as an extension of the mattress. It gives the mattress a little extra height, depth, and cushioning, making the mattress more comfortable and durable. You can also buy a mattress topper for your old mattress if you want to spruce it up a bit. It will breathe new life into your mattress and give you extra comfort. When you buy sheets for a mattress with a mattress topper on, you need to look for sheets with extra depth (if you’re buying fitted sheets) or a bigger sheet (if you are buying normal sheets).

What is a Mattress Protector?

A mattress protector is like an extra sheet that you put on your bed. It has a special insert in the middle that is waterproof and prevents liquids such as sweat from staining and wetting your mattress. It is relatively thin, so it will not add any height or depth to your mattress. Some protectors also help to keep the bed fresh by preventing dust mites and other allergens from getting onto the mattress.

Can You Use the Two Together?

You can easily put a mattress topper on your old or new mattress and then cover it with a mattress protector. That way you extend the lifespan of both the mattress as well as the mattress topper. Then you make the bed with the sheets and other bedding that you want to put onto the bed for maximum comfort.

If you are not sure about your options, speak to our friendly staff here at Beds Glasgow. We have the knowledge and experience to give you sound advice and guidance about the mattress accessory that will suit your needs.

Noticeable Increase

The beds sector had seen a noticeable increase in double and king-size beds due to competition in the market while mattress sales have seen growth in pocket sprung models along with other materials such as memory foam. The beds sector has also seen growth from those businessesusing internet-onlysales.

Research manager at AMA Research, Hayley Thornley, said, “The popularity of modern and contemporary furniture seems to favour alternative furniture combinations, rather than the traditional 3-piece suites.

Mattresses That Will Not Disappoint

Ensuring that you get a decent night’s rest is important on many levels; and if anyone understands that, it is Beds Glasgow. This is why we stock such an extensiverange of beds and mattresses. With everything from orthopaedic to memory foam, we can guarantee that our mattresses will not disappoint when it comes to a comfortable sleep!

Shire Beds

However, spare a thought for the many homeless people in the UK who never get to enjoy a good night’s sleep. One bed manufacturer has decided to help in this respect and has made a heart-warming gesture to a Leeds charity that supports the homeless.

Specialist Contract Range

A comfortable bed is something that everyone deserves. With that in mind, Shire Beds, a bed manufacturer based in Dewsbury, has donated twelve foam mattresses that come with the added benefit of being waterproof, to St George’s Crypt, a Leeds charity for the homeless, vulnerable and those who are battling addiction. The donated mattresses are all top quality and reliable mattresses from the company’s specialist contract range.

Simple Luxury

Sales and marketing director of Shire Beds, Fara Butt, said, “We are delighted to be able to work with St George’s Crypt. We are acutely aware of the rising statistics of homelessness, especially in our local area and wider community. This is why we want to help at least a few people to enjoy the simple luxury of a good night’s sleep, which so many take for granted. It is the least that we can do, and in-keeping with the season, have a deep sense of wanting to give something back for those who are less fortunate than others at Christmastime.”

Outstanding Service

A spokesperson for St George’s Crypt spoke of how pleased they were with the generous donation from Shire Beds. They said, “We are grateful to Shire Beds for the much-needed mattresses. Every donation goes towards providing the outstanding service we offer to the most vulnerable and needy of Leeds.”

Back Pain in Younger People

For a lot of people, nothing is more important than a good night’s sleep; it rejuvenates the body after a long and stressful day. However, more and more of the younger generations are suffering from back pain due to a sedentary lifestyle and bad posture; this is causing many issues when they try to get comfortable at night.

Back Pain in Younger People

Sedentary Lifestyle and Bad Posture

Private healthcare group Bupa have complied a list of data from over 60,000 medical procedures in 2015 and found that those in their 20s and 30s are being treated for a range of problems including back pain that are stereo typically associated with old age. The data has shown that, in most cases, a sedentary lifestyle and bad posture are to blame for issues such as back pain.

Bupa also found that treatment that would usually be offered to older people was increasing in younger people, aged primarily between 25 and 45. Experts have warned that because these individuals are continually hunching over their mobile phones and other devices, along with sitting at a desk for lengthy periods of time, there is a corresponding rise in back and neck pain.

Concerns

In a survey conducted by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA), 45 per cent of respondents aged 16 to 24 admitted to suffering from back or neck pain, compared to just 28 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds who were asked the same question the year before. BCA chiropractorTim Hutchfulsaid that he was “concerned that the number of patients under the age of 30 coming through our doors is increasing”.

He then added, “When people use laptops or mobile phones in bed, they tend to forget their posture, hunch over the screen and leave their spine unsupported, which can damage posture and cause back or neck pain.”

When it comes to back pain, an orthopaedic mattress helps alleviate some of the discomfort; if you are suffering from back pain, like many of the individuals from the surveys mentioned above, contact us here at Beds Glasgow. We have a fantastic range of beds for all situations and circumstances.
