In the past few years there seems to have been some disagreement about whether or not you should flip your mattress. For a long time, people believed that flipping your mattress every 6-12 months help to keep it evened out and added life to your mattress. However, the design of mattresses has changed, meaning that you might need to rotate your mattress rather than flipping it.
If both sides of your mattress are the same, like traditional mattresses, then you should continue to flip it 1-2 times a year to keep it evenly worn. However, if your mattress has a pillowtop, or is a foam mattress, you should be rotating it instead. Mattresses with one top that has special layers should not be flipped, because the foam, down, etc. should always remain on the top side. So, rotate your mattress from top to bottom 1-2 times a year instead.
If you’re not sure what kind of mattress you have, or whether you should be flipping it or rotating it, take off your sheets and give your mattress a quick once over. You can usually visibly see if it has a pillowtop. If you still can’t tell, do some research online to see what your mattress is made of and whether you should be flipping it or rotating it.
If you’ve flipped and rotated your mattress until there’s no tomorrow, it might be time to get a new mattress altogether. If that’s the case, stop by to see us at Factory Mattress and Bedrooms in Greenville, NC.
