Box Spring / September 18, 2017 / Calandre
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.
More important than how long your bedding will last or how comfortable you are is the safety of purchasing new mattresses and putting them on old box springs. The risk is that the older ones may not meet flammability standards and thereby put you more at risk even if your bedding does meet the standards. If you have gone to various mattress stores and you have been encouraged at each one to purchase both bedding and box springs it is still up to you.
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.
