Box Spring / July 23, 2018 / Emmeline.
Many people love platform beds because of their low profile. The bed might be comfortable for people who do not like to sit up high in their beds. Or maybe even have health issues like back and knee pain which makes it difficult for them. It just makes it easier for them to get out of bed. Unfortunately not too many people understand how to correctly put a mattress on top of a platform bed.
Since most box springs are hard mattresses are designed to work perfectly well on just about any firm hard surface. The floor is one. Ive slept on a mattress on the floor for a good 8 years and I can personally vouch for the undiminished comfort of such a setup. If there is one key argument for box springs it is that certain touted mattress manufacturers will claim that a box spring can extend the life of a mattress. This statement is true only to the extent of the box spring providing additional spring cushioning absorbing some of the wear that is normally exhibited onto the mattress itself. These manufacturers typically provide a box spring with their mattress one that they say is specifically designed to be used with that mattress.

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.
