This is a brief guide for getting the most out of your memory foam mattress. It contains helpful tips from Foamevas, an online retailer specializing in high-quality memory foam mattresses.
Make sure you use a bed frame
- Don’t forget to use a bed frame.
- Your mattress is designed to support the weight of your body, but it can also benefit from having a sturdy structure (like a wooden bed frame) that helps keep it in place and prevents sagging over time.
- In addition, using a bed frame will help protect your memory foam mattress from damage such as tears or stains caused by other objects or furniture in your bedroom falling onto them.
Get a new mattress pad if your current one is sagging
As you know, your memory foam mattress is an investment in your health and well-being. But what about the mattress pad? If you are using one that sags or has holes, then it’s time to upgrade to a new one.
The purpose of a mattress pad is to protect your memory foam mattress from liquids, stains, and other hazards that could compromise its ability to offer support. The best way to do this is with a waterproof cover that will keep liquid spills away from the surface of your bed. Make sure that when you’re looking for a new mattress protector (or “topper,” if we’re being technical) that it’s made specifically for use with memory foam mattresses so as not to disrupt their chemical structure (which would also negate any benefits they provide).
For example: We recently got ourselves some new comforters at our house because they were starting get quite worn out after years of use. We didn’t want any more holes appearing on them so we went ahead and bought replacements even though they were still technically usable!
Pull back the covers when making the bed
When making your bed, it’s important to pull back the covers so that your memory foam mattress can breathe. It’s also important not to put too much weight on the mattress or let it get wet. Finally, avoid placing anything directly on top of your memory foam mattress as this can compress its structure and reduce its performance over time.
Don’t store things under the mattress
There are a few things that you should never store under your mattress. One of these items is a box spring. The box spring acts as a platform for the mattress, and when the two are placed together they create one solid unit, but if they’re separated it can be difficult to get them back into one piece if something happens to one or both of them during transport or storage. Additionally, we recommend against placing anything weighing more than 20 pounds (or its equal weight in water) on top of your memory foam mattress because too much weight will compress it and cause it to lose its supportive properties.
Get a mattress protector
The best way to protect your mattress from wear and tear is with a quality mattress protector. A good one will not only protect the foam from stains, but it’ll keep it fresh and clean for longer. It’s also great at protecting the surface of your memory foam, which can be vulnerable when exposed to things like dust, spills and other liquids.
A good mattress protector will breathe well so that air can flow through it easily. This helps prevent any build-up of heat within the mattress as well as keeping it fresher for longer by preventing sweat (which is acidic) from building up inside the bedding on top of us while we sleep!
Try to not make it a habit of lying on top of your memory foam mattress while doing work that requires pen and paper
- Don’t let the memory foam mattress get wet. If you have a spill and can’t clean it up right away, move your mattress to another room or lay down a towel to protect it from getting wet.
- Avoid storing items under the memory foam mattress. This is because as mattresses age, they tend to sink down in the center—which means that heavy objects stored under them will rest directly on top of whatever’s inside them (like your back), pushing them further into the mattress and creating an uneven pressure point that can be uncomfortable for sleeping partners.
Don’t let your memory foam mattress get wet
If your memory foam mattress does become wet, you should immediately remove any excess moisture as soon as possible. The longer it sits wet, the more likely it is to damage your mattress and promote mold growth.
To remove the water from your mattress:
- Allow the mattress to dry fully before putting it back on the bed frame or slats. If you have a waterproof cover, remove this while allowing your mattress to air-dry completely (at least 24 hours). If not, use a towel or rag over an area with no seams or stitching (if possible) so that you don’t push any moisture further into the fabric layers below where it could cause damage later on down the line.
Replace your memory foam mattress every 8 years or so.
If you’ve had your memory foam mattress for 8 years or more, it might be time for a replacement. Memory foam is known for its ability to mold to the shape of the body, but it doesn’t last forever. After 8-10 years, your mattress will begin to lose some of its original quality and may no longer provide adequate support or comfort. You may also notice that the material has begun to break down or become lumpy over time as well.
For those who find themselves in need of a new mattress before their current one has reached this point (perhaps because they bought one about 10 years ago), there are still certain circumstances under which replacing your old one would not be recommended: If you’ve exposed yours excessively moisture or heat on more than one occasion (this includes things like spilling water onto it), then its lifespan may have been shortened significantly enough that the warranty is null and void—in which case replacing it sooner rather than later could actually lead to problems down the road!
Avoid using harsh detergents on your mattress when cleaning. Vacuum thoroughly, then spot clean with mild soap and water.

- If you need to use a steam cleaner, make sure the steam will not come in contact with the memory foam layer of your mattress because this could damage it.
Use proper cutting techniques when opening up the package for your memory foam mattress. It’s best to use a utility knife or box cutter. Lay down plastic wrapping or cardboard to protect the floor before you cut open the package. You can also use scissors or shears for an easier cut.
