A well maintained bed lasts a long time
To ensure pleasant sleep, the bed must not only be of good quality but it must also be clean. Quality of sleep depends directly on the comfort and hygiene of the mattress.
In general, the mattress is the ideal environment for bacteria, mites and viruses. Even thick bed linen can not protect us against these micro-particles. 90% of mattresses are infected with hundreds of thousands of mites and bacteria.
To improve settling of the mattress lining material around the sleeper's body, it is recommended to turn the mattress over and to switch the head and feet every two weeks in the first months, then to do this once every three months.
The mattress should be protected by at least a sheet and a draw sheet that is washable at high temperature preventing premature wear of the ticking and stains.
