Alita. Box Spring. September 06th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Get a mattress cover that has an elastic bottom that will fit under the encased mattress while covering the top and around the sides of the mattress encasing. Comfortable mattress covers are available in regular and waterproof styles. The mattress encasing will protect the mattress from leaching dust, dust mite and pet dander allergen. The mattress cover will protect the mattress encasing from becoming contaminated with fresh dust, dust mite and pet dander allergen. Waterproof mattress covers will also protect your mattress encasing from urine and liquid spills. The mattress cover will put a comfortable barrier between your encased mattress and sheets while extending the time and need to clean the mattress encasing that is being protected under the mattress cover.
