Alita. Box Spring. September 16th , 2017.
Many people love platform beds because of their low profile. The bed might be comfortable for people who do not like to sit up high in their beds. Or maybe even have health issues like back and knee pain which makes it difficult for them. It just makes it easier for them to get out of bed. Unfortunately, not too many people understand how to correctly put a mattress on top of a platform bed.
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.
Since most box springs are hard, mattresses are designed to work perfectly well on just about any firm, hard surface. The floor is one. Ive slept on a mattress on the floor for a good 8 years, and I can personally vouch for the undiminished comfort of such a setup. If there is one key argument for box springs, it is that certain touted mattress manufacturers will claim that a box spring can extend the life of a mattress. This statement is true only to the extent of the box spring providing additional spring cushioning, absorbing some of the wear that is normally exhibited onto the mattress itself. These manufacturers typically provide a box spring with their mattress, one that they say is specifically designed to be used with that 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. 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.
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.
