Why Trust Mattress Land?

Is there anything better than cuddling with your pets? You could argue the point, but we truly believe resting with your furry friend is an important past time you should share with them. Now, where that takes place is a different story. It’s common for people with pets to just let their animals jump up on the bed to snooze with them, but we can’t emphasize enough how bad this is for your TempurPedic mattress.

How Long Does a TempurPedic Mattress Last?

TempurPedic mattresses are designed to last up to 10 years, but they may not last that long if you let your pets on them. Pets can damage the mattress by scratching it or leaving their hair on it, which will make it less comfortable and reduce its lifespan. If you have pets, it's best to keep them off your TempurPedic mattress to help it last as long as possible.

Other Factors that Influence Mattress Lifespan

Body Weight: As you may already know, TempurPedic mattresses are known for their superior comfort and longevity. However, there are a few factors that can influence how long your mattress will last - body weight being one of them

If you're a heavier person, your TempurPedic mattress will wear down more quickly than someone who is lighter. That's because the heavier you are, the more pressure you're putting on the mattress - and over time, that pressure will take its toll.

Sleep Position: Sleep position determines where weight is distributed across the mattress. Thus, sleeping positions naturally influence how long a mattress will last.

Mattress Type: Different types of mattresses of different lifespans. A TempurPedic memory foam mattress has a very long lifespan. However, a TempurPedic hybrid mattress may have a slightly shorter lifespan because of the specific construction.

Materials: The quality of materials has a substantial impact on how long a mattress will last. Not all foams are created equal. TempurPedic foam is of an incredibly high quality so it holds up to the test of time. Different types of foam or springs will wear at different paces. The density of foams as well as the durability of fabrics used will influence how a mattress withstands normal use.

Care Routine: Cleaning and taking care of your TempurPedic mattress will help it last longer. Be sure to vacuum the mattress regularly. If spills occur, blot them immediately with a clean, dry cloth.

Be sure to regularly rotate or flip your mattress. Also, make sure your mattress can breathe! Proper mattress ventilation is an important part of mattress care.

Reasons to Keep Pets Off a TempurPedic Mattress

There’s a time and a place for napping with your little companion, but it’s not when you’re going to sleep. Read on to discover why your fur buddy should probably not participate in your bedtime slumber.

Dust, Pollen, and Allergens – Oh My!

If you have an outdoor cat and a dog that gets a lot of outside playtime, then you’ll probably be most affected by the mayhem that comes with that. These animals may be clean, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring in fun allergens from outside. From dust particles to flecks of pollen, your pets have a way of bringing these inside and setting your allergies on fire.

If your pets jump into your bed every night, they’re likely to track those unwanted allergens all over your sleep space, which can easily be absorbed into your mattress. Don’t ruin your TempurPedic Mattress or aggravate your senses by letting your “furiend” sleep with you.

Accidents Happen

Kids can’t always help it, and neither can your pets. Sometimes they get the urge to release their bodily fluids, and then it’s just too late. Your mattress is suddenly wet and smelly and there’s just no going back. So, the best way to keep a clean bed, free of from animal accidents? Just don’t let them on your bed.

You should always try protecting your TempurPedic with a mattress cover anyways, but unfortunately, liquids still have a way of soaking through the protector. Keep the pets off and you’ll never need to worry about a mess occurring.

Mattress Bugs

If you let your cats and dogs up on your bed often, there’s a good chance they’ll bring in more than just dust and pollen from outside. Germs, ticks, and other icky things could easily crawl their way into your bed sheets, and even your mattress!

Of course, even if your animals get all the appropriate shots to prevent ticks, worms, and other creepy crawlies, your animals still have microscopic bugs that can easily find their way into your bed which can ultimately mess with your immune system. To prevent waking up with a fever, keep the pups and kitties off the bed.

Why You Shouldn’t Let Pets on Your Tempur-Pedic Mattress

We know it’s a hard thing not allowing your pets on the bed, but a clean TempurPedic mattress is much better for your health. Try finding another spot you can hang out with your animals on, such as a futon, or consider getting your pet their own bed! Either way, keeping the furry fellows off your TempurPedic will keep your mattress, and you, in a better state. If a pet has ruined your bed and you’re ready for a fresh start, stop by our store today to find a Tempur-Pedic bed void of animal hair.

How to Clean a TempurPedic Mattress

TempurPedic mattresses are known for their superior comfort and longevity, but they need to be cleaned regularly to maintain those properties. Cleaning your mattress at least four times a year is a good way to ensure your mattress stays odor-free and fresh.

Most TempurPedic mattresses come with cooling mattress covers. These should be unzipped and washed more regularly than the mattress itself. If your TempurPedic mattress cover has stains, gently work an enzyme-based laundry detergent into the stain prior to washing. Proceed to wash the comforter in cold water before drying at the lowest possible setting.

Here are a few tips on how to clean your TempurPedic mattress:

- Vacuum the mattress to remove any dust or dirt.

- Dust mattress with baking soda to help eliminate odors. Let the absorb smells for an hour before vacuuming it away.

- If spills occur, blot them immediately with a clean, dry cloth.

- Make sure your mattress can breathe by ensuring proper ventilation.

- Regularly rotate or flip your mattress (unless it is a hybrid!) to prevent wear and tear.

Following these tips will help keep your Tempur-Pedic mattress in tip-top shape, so you can enjoy its comfort and support for years to come.
