Pure Zone Mattress Maintenance Guide: How To Keep Your Mattress In Good Shape For Longer

It’s the new year! Out with the old, in with the new, a chance for a fresh start… we’re all looking to this season’s major sales for those big ticket items. Those more expensive purchases we know we need to make, but keep putting it off. And a new mattress is definitely on a lot of lists this year (have we ever spent more time in bed than through the lockdowns of recent years??).

If you are investing in a new mattress this year, here are our absolute best top tips (as bed experts!) to keep your mattress fresh and in good shape for many years to come.

1. Never underestimate the importance of a Mattress Protector

This isn’t a “nice to have” or something only Gran and Aunty buy. A Mattress Protector is 100% your frontline in defense to make sure you’re not shelling out the dollars again for a new mattress sooner than you have to.

As well as the obvious, protecting your mattress from bigger spills such as beverages and bedtime dinners, a great Mattress Protector also adds an extra layer of filtering to catch the smallest particles of dust, bodily oils, sweat and skin. According to varying sources, house dust can be made up of anything between 20-50% dead skin cells. And a lot of your bodies detoxing and cell renewal happens when you are asleep. 

Invest in two great quality Mattress Protectors as soon as you buy your new Mattress and use them from day 1. You can rotate with laundry cycles and ensure your Mattress is protected from all dust and dirt at all times.

2. Reduce your nighttime sweat-factor

If you run hot at night and sweat when you sleep, we understand that it is a catch-22 sometimes between choosing a Waterproof Mattress Protector to save your sweat from soaking into your mattress, but then of course, sweating is only worsened by having non-breathable waterproof materials in your Bedlinen.

The answer is simple - switch to 100% Natural Fibre Bamboo Bedlinen, and you will no longer need extra waterproof layers to protect your mattress from sweat.

Our 100% Organic Bamboo Bedlinen Range is 6 times more absorbent than Cotton, so any sweat is instantly absorbed and wicked away from your body. The breathable nature of this amazing fibre means that it carries sweat away from your body to the outer layers and allows sweat to be evaporated into the atmosphere in your bedroom - not into the deep layers of your new Mattress!

3. Don’t forget to flip it

Especially important in the first few years of your Mattress’ life, turn your Mattress 180 degrees (flipping head and foot end) every two-to-six months when you remember. Rotating your mattress regularly will ensure it wears evenly and you don’t end up with deep indentations.

This tip is specifically for a Spring Mattress… if you have invested in a Memory Foam Mattress, there is no need to flip or rotate! The material has been designed to mould around the indentations of your body for maximum comfort. 

4. Give it a sun bathe

If it’s a particularly beautiful sunny day outside, open up your bedroom curtains fully and strip your bed down to the Mattress. Let it bathe in the hot sun and get some fresh air for a few hours. It does absolute wonders for evaporating any residual sweat, and can also keep dust mite populations in check. The natural UV light in sunshine is antibacterial, so basking your bedroom in sunlight is the easiest way to kill any germs that may be lurking.

5. A good vacuum goes a long way

Doing the housework and got some extra minutes? Strip your bed and give your Mattress a good vacuum. Goodbye dust particles, mites and other nasties!
