Box Spring / August 4, 2018 / Pierrette Segal.
Todays newer materials are smooth not crunchy and are far more durable and comfortable to sleep on. We recommend that you purchase NON-Membrane mattress encasings that are cool to sleep on and can be safely dried in a cool to warm temperature clothes dryer. REMEMBER it is the hot water in your washing machine that kills the dust mites and flushes away the dust mite and pet dander allergen. NOTE: There is no need to dry your encasings in a hot dryer and your encasings will last longer when dried in a cool to warm dryer! Waterproofing your mattress encasing If you need to totally waterproof your mattress encasing the answer is very easy and inexpensive! Instead of purchasing a more expensive water proof mattress encasings or waterproof mattress cover that will have to be washed anyway if the person has an accident just cover your mattress encasing with a sturdy but thin sheet of inexpensive waterproof material such as plastic vinyl or nylon that can easily be wiped off or replaced if an accident occurs.
Customers who are laid back when it comes to bedroom furniture often choose box spring type beds. One thing that must be considered when buying pack spring type bed is the coils ability to withstand body weight. Box spring shock-absorbing performance wears off as the time goes by. The average expected life of a mattress and box spring is eight to 10 years. On the other hand you dont have to worry yourself such issues with the platform bed. Its base made of flat hard base is enough to support a mattress much reliable compared to pack spring type of bed. Since it is made of a hard platform it can support the mattress even without a foundation underneath. This will save you money that you can use towards buying a good-quality mattress or bedroom accessories.
Vinyl Box spring encasings make no noise on a box spring and they never have to be cleaned in the washer and dryer. Vinyl box spring encasings are also waterproof! To clean just wipe them down with a damp cloth when they become dusty or dirty. Bedding And Chemicals There are many chemicals on the market advertising to get rid of Dust Mites and Dust Mite allergen on different types of surfaces! From our over 20 years of experience we feel that it is better to stay away from these chemicals that you may react to. Especially when it comes to bedding! Dont take chemical shortcuts!
Realistically from all of the research I have done on this (and with a girlfriend that constantly debates this point with me Ive done my share of research) I have concluded that box springs only do two things well and that is 1. increase the overall height of the bed and 2. soften the overall firmness of the bed (given that the box spring is not extremely firm). Helping the mattress last longer is a distant distant and arguable third. As a person who neither cares for a tall bed nor a soft bed I found that platform beds are the most stylishly modern environmentally-friendly pieces of furniture to complement my mattress. You simply dont need a box spring for your mattress/bed.
