Box Spring. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 13:37:12 PM
Visions of warm sandy beaches or powder covered ski slopes have many students and families excited for their upcoming spring break. With thoughts focused on how they will spend their vacation time and considering what souvenirs they may wish to bring home, the last thing they are considering is protecting themselves from bringing home bed bugs. They like to travel and are good hitchhikers. They will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures and can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs can wreak havoc on your life, not only because of their itchy bites, but they spread quickly and are extremely difficult to get rid of.
If you require a box spring for your mattress If your purpose for a platform bed is to have a lower profile that adding a box spring might not make any sense. There are platform beds that have that have a much lower foundation that can easily set up the box spring and mattress. This way you can get the best setup for your mattress and still have that desire low profile. Does your Platform Bed have Slats? Slats can take place for the box spring. But once again you should refer to your manufactures guide. Depending on your mattress thickness, you could possibly feel the sagging around the spacing of your slats. Off course the closer the slats the better, but most of the times the slats are built in and only able to adjust them minimally. Using Plywood Deck 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.
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.
