We've collected the top undercover ways to keep your bed in top shape. By following these sweet and simple steps, you can help protect your investment and make your mattress last longer.
Rule 1: Use a Mattress Protector
Perhaps the single most important thing anyone can do to make a mattress last longer is to use a water resistant or waterproof mattress protector. Even if you're a healthy adult who hasn't wet the bed in decades, spills and other unforeseen accidents can ruin an otherwise good bed.
Liquids and bodily fluids can degrade foams, leave nasty odors, and produce mold and mildew within mattress layers. Cleanup can be very difficult once a spill soaks below the surface, whereas a mattress protector makes clean up swift and easy.
You also sweat a significant amount each night, which is absorbed into your bed along with shedding skin cells, dust mites, and dust mite detritus. Keeping this out of your mattress reduces allergen buildup and keeps your sleep environment healthier.
Rule 2: Clean Your Bedding Regularly
People's preferences for frequency of washing sheets and bedding can vary widely, but most experts suggest washing sheets at least every two weeks or so. Bedding soaks in sweat, skin cells and lots of other things you'd probably rather not sleep with, so remind yourself to keep sheets clean. If you have dust allergies or skin irritations, consider washing sheets even more frequently.
Rule 3: Clean Your Mattress Regularly
Did you know you should clean your actual mattress, too? Every month or so, it's a good idea to strip your bed and vacuum the surface and seams to reduce dust and debris (even if you use a protector). Some cleaning experts recommend sprinkling baking soda on the mattress surface before vacuuming to absorb excess moisture and odors.
If your mattress cover is removable and washable, wash it as well. This is also a good time to inspect your mattress for any issues.
Rule 4: Regularly Rotate Your Bed
Rotate your bed regularly, especially the first couple of years. Every 2-3 months should be often enough to promote even wear and reduce impressions. Rotate your mattress even if the manufacturer says it's not necessary, as it will help extend your bed's lifespan.
Rule 5: Don't Eat In Bed
It's tempting to grab breakfast in bed or snack while watching movies, but it's really a good idea to keep food off the bed. Crumbs can find their way into sheets and mattress layers, attracting nasties, while liquids can spill and cause problems as well.
Rule 6: Get Pets Their Own Beds
It may be comforting to have Fido to snuggle, but pets bring a whole new set of problems with them to bed. For one, they sweat, slobber, and shed hair and dander, all of which you'll be sleeping with. Pets are also prone to accidents, which can ruin a good mattress.
Animals that go outdoors can track bugs and mites indoors as well, so it's better for everyone if they have their own designated beds to snuggle up in.
Rule 7: Be Aware of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs can immediately turn a decent bed into a hazard zone. Be vigilant when you go to hotels or sleep away from home, as bed bugs are prolific hitchhikers and they can easily become your problem.
If you live in a bed bug prone area, consider using a bed bug-proof mattress encasement. These zippered covers fully encase the bed and prevent bugs from getting inside.
Rule 8: Ensure Your Mattress is Supported
Your mattress is designed to support you, but it also needs to be supported to provide long lasting comfort. Inspect your bed frame and foundation/box springs every couple of years to make sure they are in good shape and providing a solid foundation for your mattress.
Boxsprings that are saggy and worn out, wood slats that are weak or too far apart, or a broken frame can all contribute to quicker wear and reduce your comfort.

Why do I need a mattress protector?

The first reason to have a mattress protector is to keep your bed clean. Our bodies are not as clean as we think even though we take bath every day. we perspire at night, our skin produces oil while some of us put on makeup. All this can get into the mattress and once it gets in, we cannot remove it. A mattress protector will not let this happen.
Secondly, we all love to keep our mattress new. we do not want it to shorten the life of the mattress. Dust mites consume dead skin cells and the dead skin cells will remain on your mattress if you do not use a mattress protector.

How often should I turn/rotate my memory foam mattress?

Memory foam mattresses should not be flipped at all - they only have memory foam on one side.

How often should I rotate my mattress and is it necessary?

Mattresses should be rotated and flipped at least twice a year to achieve a longer life span. A tip my friend gave me to help remember was: spring spin, fall flip (meaning in spring time spin your mattress and during the fall flip it). I have found a great guide to rotating your mattress that I think you will find helpful.
