Box Spring / July 27, 2018 / Pierrette Segal.
Its best to first review your mattress manufactures guideline on how to properly set up your mattress. Many mattresses require you to have a box spring. This box spring ensures your getting adequate back support. Incorrect box springs can cause lumps and dips. The result can cause severe pain in your body or maybe worse less quality of sleep. Remember that its important to review the guideline. Improper setup could possibly void your warranty.
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!
If all else fails then the best solution is to measure the width and length of the bed. Use these measurements and cut out a plywood deck. I would recommend cutting them into 2 or 3 smaller pieces. Cutting one large plywood deck can be difficult especially if you have a larger size like a king or queen. Once again though check with your manufacturers guide. The flat foundation could possibly make the mattress less comfortable.
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.
