Taking Good Care of your Mattress

When is the time to turn?

To prolong the life of your best mattress topper for side sleepers and prevent it from starting to form holes, it is recommended to turn it.

It must be turned in two ways: the face from top to bottom; and the part from the feet to the headboard.

Never leave the mattress more than three months in the same position. Ideally, repeat this procedure once a month.

The mattress should be changed, on average, after eight years of use.

The wrong mattress can cause

  • That little pain in the back
  • Cramps
  • Tiredness
  • Column deviation
  • Muscle aches
  • Back and lower back pain
  • Lack of concentration
  • Herniated Disc
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Poor circulation and tingling

The most common types of Mattress

Know each model to buy the right one for you:

Polyurethane Foam

It is the best selling type, made with ordinary foam. The heights and densities vary greatly, so consult the manufacturers table. It is also the cheapest model, so it can be changed frequently. This deforms quickly.

Bonnel Springs

It has interlaced springs covered by a thin layer of foam. It is more suitable for singles because when one person moves in one corner of the mattress, the other side sways. Durable and very heavy, it requires strength and care when handling.

From bagged springs (Pocket System)

Suitable for couples, it has springs wrapped one by one, ensuring comfort and durability. It usually carries on one side a layer of foam called a pillow top (it reads “píloutóp”). This special layer provides extra comfort, but prevents the mattress from being flipped periodically.


It has soft and very durable material, which makes it a very comfortable mattress as it adapts to the contour of the body. Good for allergy sufferers, this model usually comes with treatment against fungi, mites and bacteria.
