The first rule to prolong the life cycle of the mattress is to turn it head-to-toe and make the change of side with a certain frequency to delay wear and allow it to take place evenly. To move the mattress, it is advisable to use the appropriate handles.
Support ventilation is also very important. In fact, during the night, fragments of skin, sweat, and dust are transferred onto it which, over time, can cause allergies. For this reason, it is advisable to ventilate the room daily before making the bed again and, if the mattress is removable, open the zipper at least once a week.
Who has children, should prevent them from jumping on the mattress because this could lead to failure of the internal structure, seriously compromising the quality of rest.
Another factor not to be underestimated is the quality of the base on which the mattress rests, which must always be compatible with the support in order to guarantee an optimal balance of the loads, without forgetting that even the nets wear out over time and must, therefore, be replaced.
The hygienic conditions that influence the life of the mattress:
In addition to the structural elements that influence how long a mattress lasts, hygienic conditions should not be underestimated. To keep the mattress clean it is essential to adequately protect both the support and the mesh with a mattress cover and a cover and to wash the cover frequently in the washing machine. If the support is not removable, it is recommended to use soap and a damp cloth, but being careful to rub gently to avoid wetting the mattress.
To clean the bed system, we recommend not using a vacuum cleaner as it could damage the upholstery and upholstery.

Why change the mattress?
Now that we know how long a mattress lasts and how to keep it longer, we try to understand better why it is important to change it once its life cycle is over.
In addition to joint and muscle pains that have negative repercussions on daily life, research has shown that, within 10 years, in a mattress, they can agglomerate up to 2 million mites and their excrements that, although not visible to the naked eye, are however risky for health. Between mites, bacteria, viruses, spores, skin fragments, sweat that seeps into the padding, organic and inorganic residues, over 200 grams of particles accumulate.
