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.
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.
If you simply cannot afford it, then that is all there is to it. If you think yours do not meet the standard, then you can get rid of them, but you will want some form of support. If you cannot afford box springs, wood supports are an option even though they may not be as strong. If you choose not to buy box springs, you should check and make sure any bedding you purchase are still under warranty. Since the mattress stores believe it helps mattresses to last, they may only let the warranty work if you purchase both together. It may depend on the store, so you should ask.
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.
Its best to first review your mattress manufactures guideline on how to properly set up your mattress. Many mattresses require you to have a box spring. This box spring ensures your getting adequate back support. Incorrect box springs can cause lumps and dips. The result can cause severe pain in your body or maybe worse, less quality of sleep. Remember that its important to review the guideline. Improper setup could possibly void your warranty.
