Box Spring. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 12:34:01 PM
Turning a blind eye to a potential bed bug invasion is a risk you dont want to take; especially when travelling. If you are planning to travel for spring break, or any time of year, here are some helpful tips for avoiding these pests: Leave your suitcases on hard surfaces. Do not put your suitcase on the bed, carpet or upholstered furniture. Bed bugs are less likely to invade your belongings if you place them on a hard surface, such as the luggage rack or table. Search your sheets at night to spot the actual bug. Bed bugs mostly hide out during the day, but you may be able to see them at night by using a flashlight. Baby bedbugs are nearly invisible, but their older relatives are brown to red-brown and oval-shaped.
Over the years bedroom furniture designs evolved through the years. Before the popularity of platform beds, the box spring bed dominated the bedroom scene. Box springs have coils to support the mattress. The coils provide extra resiliency and serves as a shock absorber as the body weights presses on. Platform bed on the other hand supports the mattress with a hard raised wooden platform minus the spring or coil. Customers who are laid back when it comes to bedroom furniture often choose box spring type beds. One thing that must be considered when buying pack spring type bed is the coils ability to withstand body weight. Box spring shock-absorbing performance wears off as the time goes by. The average expected life of a mattress and box spring is eight to 10 years.
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.
