One of the best ways that you can make your life easier is to make sure that you are able to get enough sleep every night. Sleep deprivation can come from a lot of different things including anxiety stress a very busy schedule and more. But one of the biggest reasons that a lot of people do not get a lot of sleep is that they do not have a bed that is comfortable! Having a comfortable bed is one of those things that is very easy to over look. There are so many expenses that we can tend to forget about fixing things that arent yet broken. But investing the money to get a comfortable mattress is definitely money well spent. Lets take a look at some of the different types of mattresses you can get.
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.
If you simply cannot afford it then that is all there is to it. If you think yours do not meet the standard then you can get rid of them but you will want some form of support. If you cannot afford box springs wood supports are an option even though they may not be as strong. If you choose not to buy box springs you should check and make sure any bedding you purchase are still under warranty. Since the mattress stores believe it helps mattresses to last they may only let the warranty work if you purchase both together. It may depend on the store so you should ask.
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.
