Box Spring / July 26, 2018 / Lucille.
At the most basic level you can get a box spring mattress. These beds are very traditional and have been around for decades. If you have never slept on anything else then a box spring bed will feel completely normal. However they tend to cause discomfort because they do not allow your body to maintain a neutral spine while sleep. If you want to go the extra mile and experience a new level of comfort then you should think about getting one of the newer types of mattresses that are currently on the market.
Do I need a Box Spring for my Mattress? This question comes up at least once during bed shopping for 90% of all people. And for good reason. Box Springs are a multi-million dollar multi-million tree chopping industry. So in light of the green revolution (re-co-lu-tion?) these days one can only wonder: is there really a reason for all the senseless killing of defenseless trees just to have an extra foot of wood fabric and air underneath your fully functional mattress? As it turns out the answer is both a resounding no with a hint of yes. The real kicker here is that most modern box springs dont actually have "springs" in them which basically leaves just the "box" part as a truth. And this is exactly what they are a wood-framed box covered with fabric. All of the bells whistles and 21st century technology go into the mattress part of the bed which if you were a well-informed bed shopper could take on all sorts of exotic construction from innerspring foam visco-elastic (memory) foam flotation (water) or air.
Anyone who has had to move recently will remember how challenging it was to move the mattress. Depending on the type of mattress you probably felt like you were moving a very large awkward limp noodle. Many modern mattresses lack internal structures to hold them rigid. This helps a great deal when negotiating corners but does not help when moving in a straight line. The box spring on the other hand with its rigid structure was probably at its most difficult when it came to doorways and stairs. The very strong structure that supports your bed was keeping it from turning and moving perhaps even that one inch more. People who move regularly such as young adults and military families are well advised to consider buying two smaller mattresses and putting them together to create a larger bed. Smaller mattresses and box springs are easier to move.
The most important and healthiest thing to remember is to wash your sheets blankets pillowcases and mattress covers if you have them in hot water a minimum of once a week! Wash your mattress and pillow encasings once every 2 to 3 months and if your mattress encasings are protected with a mattress cover wash your encasings in hot water once every 4 to 6 months Also keep your home clean as possible! Use quality HEPA air cleaners or HEPA air purifiers with a high air exchange rate per hour in the needed bedrooms and family room. Purchase and vacuum often with a quality HEPA vacuum cleaner that is totally sealed so it does not leak dust and allergens back into the air while vacuuming! Thank you for reading this report.
