How to Extend the Life of Your Mattress

At Mattress By Appointment Asheville, we strive to bring you the best mattresses for the most affordable price. However, we understand that a mattress is still an investment, and that you want to get the most time possible out of your current mattress before you replace it. To help extend the life of your mattress, you can implement these measures:

  • Use a Mattress Protector – A mattress protector adds an extra layer of defense to your mattress, protecting it against invasion from dust mites, dirt and other odor-causing particles.  Mattress covers are available in many materials, including natural fibers like cotton or bamboo. However, the best option may be one that is also waterproof.  On most mattresses, the warranty is voided if the mattress is stained.  A good waterproof mattress protector is the best way to protect your investment as an extra barrier to spills, pet accidents or body fluids like sweat.


  • Rotate Your Mattress Every Three Months – Much like rotating your tires, rotating your mattress extends its lifespan by making sure your weight is distributed more evenly across the mattress springs and other internal features. This will prevent any one area from breaking down before the rest, so you can avoid developing any uncomfortable dips. Evening out the pressure will help you get the most use out of your mattress.
