So you purchased yourself a new organic mattress. A new mattress is a great investment and one you should do all that you can to protect. They were built to last and be replaced every 6 to 8 years, but this number can change depending on how well you take care of them. Here is how you can protect your organic mattress and keep it in perfect condition.

​Support Your Mattress

Not all mattresses are the same. This statement becomes more apparent when it comes to supporting your mattress. Finding what support best fits your mattress is necessary if you want your mattress to remain in good shape. Manufacturers may place recommendations on the mattress tag or there will be instructions on the warranty policy on how to keep your mattress in good condition. From there, finding the right foundation or box spring should not be difficult.

​Always Use a Mattress Protector

The best recommendation to ensuring your organic mattress lasts as long as possible is to use a mattress protector from the moment you buy the mattress. A good quality mattress protector, such as a hypoallergenic mattress protector, will maintain your mattress’s integrity due to it being waterproof and eco-friendly. Another important feature of a good protector is how it protects you as well as the mattress. Both you and your mattress are protected from bedbugs and allergens, and you can sleep peacefully knowing that your mattress is well cared for.

​Be Mindful When Moving

Whether you are moving to another house or you are rearranging your bedroom, your mattress will face an unfortunate end if you are not careful with moving it. Your mattress can be torn, broken, and encounter pests during the moving process. When moving your mattress, be sure to have it encased and handled carefully. For rearranging your bedroom, have plenty of space available to move the mattress to its new spot and proceed with caution.
