At American Beds, we know sleep plays a huge role in your physical and mental health. That’s why we’re proud to offer you our full line of finely crafted mattresses. But while we can only provide you with a comfortable bed, getting the right amount of rest is up to you. Read more about why sleep is so important.
It’s good to know how to clean a mattress considering just how much stuff builds up in and on this soft surface where we spend so much time. You already know about dust mites and the dead skin cells they feast on, but many mattresses also contain sweat, blood, urine and other bodily fluids… along with mold and mildew growing on those very things. Unless you shower before bed every night, your mattress might also contain dirt, oils and trace chemicals from various toiletries, and even pollen.
If your New Year’s resolution is to get more sleep, you’re on your way to being healthier and more alert. The bed is where you begin and end the day, and where you spend nearly a third of your life. So why not make it the cleanest, loveliest, and most comfortable spot in your home? Knowing the right way to wash, dry, and store your bed’s components is essential to creating a soothing sleep environment. And if you’re in the market for new bedding, we’ve got you covered there, too.
You might think that the key to a good night’s sleep is a good mattress or a futon(which is important and true), but the pillow that you rest your head on is just as crucial. We’ve all woken up with a crick in the neck feeling unrested and groggy, and that has everything to do with your pillow(s).
The right pillow should comfortably provide support for your head and your neck, and it shouldn’t deflate or lose its fluffiness quickly.
Whether it’s goose down-filled or Tempur-Pedic, here are some basic notes to keep an eye out for when you’re scavenging January’s white sales for a new one or simply looking to switch out your old ones.
