When it comes to mattresses, owners of water beds are some of the most loyal out there. They love the feeling of being gently rocked to sleep along with the feeling of floating. While water beds aren’t for everyone, the people that do enjoy sleeping on them will tell you that they are very long lasting and easy to take care of if you put some effort into it.
Maintenance of a water bed mattress is extremely easy but there are a few things that you need to be aware of to make it even easier.
One of the most important things you can do to maintain your water bed mattress is to add conditioner to it. Conditioner will keep the water in your mattress from becoming stagnant. If your water becomes stagnant, it will eventually start to grow mold and mildew on the inside of your mattress and that will mean you have to buy a new one.
By keeping your water conditioned and the water at the appropriate level, you are making sure your mattress will last as long as you need for it to.
When it comes to the water level in your water bed mattress, you need to make sure that it is not over filled or under filled. Either one of these will create issues with your mattress and can cause it to leak. Having your mattress over filled will give it a much greater chance of being punctured, even by the frame itself. If it is under filled, you run the risk of causing it to collapse. Another thing you should keep in mind is that you can ruin the frame of the water bed by over filling it.
There are plenty of other things you can do to maintain your water bed mattress; such as a top conditioner that you rub into the mattress top to keep it pliable. This top conditioner will help your mattress from drying out and cracking, especially when you consider the heating of the water inside. Getting cracks in your mattress will eventually cause it to leak and ruin your chances of a pleasant night’s sleep. These are just a few tips to help keep your bed useable.
