Babette. Box Spring. October 02nd , 2017.
With platform beds, the mattress rests directly on the frame. The frame contains slats of wood stretching from side to side, and these provide more than enough support for the mattress. Thus, a nice bed frame and a nice mattress can finally exist in harmony without the cumbersome presence of a box spring. This makes overall use of the bed much simpler. For one thing, creaking will be in the past. The springs inside a box spring tend to rust and wear out over time, and this creates audible and annoying noise. The solid construction of platform beds prevents unnecessary shifting and eliminates the noise problem.
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.
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. 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.
Anyone who has had to move recently will remember how challenging it was to move the mattress. Depending on the type of mattress you probably felt like you were moving a very large, awkward, limp noodle. Many modern mattresses lack internal structures to hold them rigid. This helps a great deal when negotiating corners, but does not help when moving in a straight line. The box spring, on the other hand, with its rigid structure was probably at its most difficult when it came to doorways and stairs. The very strong structure that supports your bed was keeping it from turning and moving perhaps even that one inch more. People who move regularly, such as young adults and military families, are well advised to consider buying two smaller mattresses and putting them together to create a larger bed. Smaller mattresses and box springs are easier to move.
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.
