If you’ve been sleeping on the same mattress for a long time, you may have flipped or rotated it in the past. Flipping or rotating your mattress can help it maintain its quality and longevity, while also helping you get a better night’s rest. If you’ve ever wondered just how often you should flip or rotate your mattress, just keep reading this blog post.
Evening out the wear of your mattress can help your mattress last longer. Depending on your preferences and your specific mattress type, you may want to rotate or flip the mattress, or both! Some mattresses have a foam or pillow topping, so these mattresses can only be rotated to distribute wear. On the other hand, mattresses that do not have a padded topping can be flipped and rotated as you sleep on it for years to come.
New beds do not need to be rotated or flipped, but aging mattresses can benefit from this. Some brands recommend you flip your mattress every three months to every year. You can also feel out the padding of your mattress to see if it feels worn in the spot where you sleep. If you notice a difference in quality, it’s time to flip or rotate.
Flipping a mattress is simple. All you have to do is remove the mattress from its frame and then put it back on the frame with the opposite side facing upwards. Depending on the size of the mattress, one person can handle this task, or two people for larger and heavier mattresses.
