Box Spring / August 2, 2018 / Babette.
After finding a company that you feel comfortable with call their scheduling department or order online and set up an appointment. A reputable company will give you a time window that they will be there and will call ahead to let you know when they are on their way. These are little things to make the experience better for the customer. 3 More often than not especially in Indiana you will not be able to donate these items nor mattresses. This is the case because second hand mattresses are notorious for passing on second hand bed bugs. So it is now becoming standard that these items have to be disposed of; worry not they can however be recycled. In Indianapolis we take them to a recycling center called DAO and are at least able to make the customers happy about the recycling element rather than the mattresses ending up in the dump or landfill.

There are dozens of different fabric materials used to manufacture the mattress and pillow encasings that are sold on the market. Some are made from 100% cotton some are made from polyester and some are a mix of both fabrics or are made from other materials. Some have membrane coatings bonded to them to make them dust mite and pet dander proof and some do not have any membrane coatings at all because the fabric is so tightly woven together the dust mite and pet dander allergen cannot penetrate through the fabric at all. The big concern for most people is for their dust mite encasings to be smooth and cool for better sleeping comfort. In the old days some mattress encasings were made from crunchy plastic or stiff vinyl materials that were loud and uncomfortable to sleep on. Some of these materials would also quickly melt or come apart in a hot dryer.
