Emmeline. Box Spring. October 15th , 2017.
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.
Todays newer materials are smooth, not crunchy and are far more durable and comfortable to sleep on. We recommend that you purchase NON-Membrane mattress encasings that are cool to sleep on and can be safely dried in a cool to warm temperature clothes dryer. REMEMBER it is the hot water in your washing machine that kills the dust mites and flushes away the dust mite and pet dander allergen. NOTE: There is no need to dry your encasings in a hot dryer and your encasings will last longer when dried in a cool to warm dryer! Waterproofing your mattress encasing If you need to totally waterproof your mattress encasing the answer is very easy and inexpensive! Instead of purchasing a more expensive water proof mattress encasings or waterproof mattress cover that will have to be washed anyway if the person has an accident, just cover your mattress encasing with a sturdy but thin sheet of inexpensive waterproof material such as plastic, vinyl or nylon that can easily be wiped off or replaced if an accident occurs.
At the most basic level, you can get a box spring mattress. These beds are very traditional and have been around for decades. If you have never slept on anything else, then a box spring bed will feel completely normal. However, they tend to cause discomfort because they do not allow your body to maintain a neutral spine while sleep. If you want to go the extra mile and experience a new level of comfort, then you should think about getting one of the newer types of mattresses that are currently on the market.
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.
Vinyl Box spring encasings make no noise on a box spring and they never have to be cleaned in the washer and dryer. Vinyl box spring encasings are also waterproof! To clean, just wipe them down with a damp cloth when they become dusty or dirty. Bedding And Chemicals There are many chemicals on the market advertising to get rid of Dust Mites and Dust Mite allergen on different types of surfaces! From our over 20 years of experience we feel that it is better to stay away from these chemicals that you may react to. Especially when it comes to bedding! Dont take chemical shortcuts!
