Knowing which mattress will suit you and your family can be a tricky task if you believe some of the common myths.
Amazingly the average person will only buy three or four mattresses during their lifetime, so choosing the best one is a crucial task.
Here at UK Bed Store, we have over four decades of experience in providing the finest mattresses including renowned brands.
In our latest blog, we are going to look at myths about mattresses and give you the truth about them.
The Truth About These Mattress Myths
Myth 1 – Turning Your Mattress Doubles Its Lifespan
In the past mattresses were designed to sleep one side only, but technological developments in spring manufacturing and mattress fillings mean you no longer need to flip it.
Myth 2 – A Firm Mattress is Good for Bad Backs
If you have a back condition, then having a firm mattress was always the first advice you used to get from a GP. The most important thing about your mattress is choosing one that offers the correct support for your spine. A mattress that’s too firm will cause pinching of nerves which leads to pins and needles and reduced blood flow.
Ultimately if your mattress has seen better days (or is over 7 years old) you should consider investing in a new one that provides better back support.
Myth 3 – Memory Foam Mattresses Make You Sleep Hot
Back in the 1990’s memory foam mattresses had a reputation for sleeping warmer than your traditional spring interior range.
Foam technology has developed so much since then with cooling gel particles and the introduction of smart fabrics regulating your body temperature with heat retention a distant memory (excuse the pun).
Myth 4 – Mattress Toppers Is Perfect Substitute for a new Mattress
If your old mattress is showing wear and tear, then investing in a cheap mattress topper will not help revive its fortunes.
Investing in a new mattress is the best solution and will prove value for money with the average one lasting up to 7 years.
UK Bed Store has a wide range of mattresses such as Coil Spring, Pocket Springs and memory foam and latex blocks.
