Suzanne Carlson. Box Spring. February 11th , 2018.
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.
The Big Problem With Mattress Encasings is Taking Them Off To Clean Them And Then Having To Put Them Back On! Heres The Answer There is a simple solution to this problem and you can save money by not having to search for and purchase the much more expensive mattress encasings that are on the market. All you have to do is purchase a mattress cover to place over a less expensive but still quality dust mite proof mattress encasing. Mattress covers can also add comfort to your bed, they are reasonably priced and easy to find online, at Wal-Mart, Linens And Things and other department stores. Get a mattress cover that has an elastic bottom that will fit under the encased mattress while covering the top and around the sides of the mattress encasing. Comfortable mattress covers are available in regular and waterproof styles.
Today, with comfort zones targeted at various positions along the mattress, this rotation is no longer suggested, and the handles which would often break when holding the weight of the entire mattress were removed. It is very important when moving a mattress from one home to another to cover it somehow. Dont rely on a sheet either. Many stores that stock boxes and other packing material will have plastic bags large enough to enclose the mattress and box spring. This is essential for keeping dirt and water from damaging the set. These bags may come complete with handles, or one can also use a very long piece of rope to create a handle. It is just like trussing up a turkey. Be sure to draw the rope all around the mattress and distribute the weight of the mattress as evenly as possible.
It is important that you do everything you can to help your bedding last. It is also important to do all you can to stay comfortable as you sleep. It may be that purchasing a new box spring every time you purchase mattresses will save you in the end because it may extend the life of your bed. 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 you simply cannot afford it, then that is all there is to it.
A service that is often needed, not just for business reasons but also for charitable purposes, is for a company to help get rid of mattresses, box springs and other household items. Just by calling removal companies these customers have already completed a necessary and useful step in the process of getting rid of nuisance items, we would still like to give you some tips and steps that help you with this process while also answering some questions you may have. Other sites that have written articles say just "Donate Them" but, unfortunately, its not that simple. You see, some places wont accept used mattresses or box springs so this process will take care of both scenarios.
