Do adjustable beds offer any health benefits?

An adjustable bed provides some relief for several common health conditions. Because you can adjust the bed for a wide range of sleeping positions, many people find relief for poor circulation, back and body pain and acid reflux.

How long do mattresses usually last?

Some types of mattresses are better than others when it comes to lasting a long time before they need to be replaced.

So it’s worth it to regularly upgrade something you spend so much time on. For that reason, it’s a good idea to have several options and make sure you try each one for yourself before you choose which one to buy.

How do I clean my mattress cover?

If your mattress cover has gotten torn, you should try spot cleaning it with a mild household fabric or upholstery cleaner.

Don’t use brushes that have bristles on them.

If you want to protect your mattress, we do recommend a waterproof mattress protector. It will keep your mattress looking good and it’ll help prevent stains from forming on your sheets.
