As long as your base is in good condition then it should be suitable for use with a new mattress. However, we do recommend that if you are replacing your mattress because of its age then you should also consider replacing the base at the same time.
Most bed bases now come in two halves for ease of delivery.
Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions. However, quite a number of today’s models have been specifically designed as single sided and do not require turning over, although they can be rotated from head to toe every couple of months.
Mattresses wear out is due to numerous factors such as how the mattress is used (guest room, master bedroom, doubled as a trampoline for the kids), whether it is cared for properly and/or the quality of the mattress itself. The average person spends one-third of his or her life in bed, your mattress is the most used piece of furniture in the home, as with other products, you get what you pay for.
Some have polyester and foam fillings where there is usually less chance of dust being created, but there are some completely non-allergenic mattresses available. Alternatively, there are non-allergenic mattress covers available.
