Mattress Protection Is Important

Mattress Protection Is Important

Mattress Protection Is Important

Did you know that most if not every mattress manufacture has certain terms and conditions that have to be followed or met in order for your mattress to be covered under warranty?

The most common terms and conditions:

No rips or tears – This will usually void your mattress warranty instantly. Of course a mattress can wear to the point of tearing BUT there is usually a clear cut difference between that and a slice, puncture or forced rip mark.

Advice: Never use scissors, a knife or any sharp object to cut open the protective plastic on your brand new mattress. Instead find the seam and pull it apart by hand. You will be surprised at how easy it will come off.

Also, always use help when moving or carrying your mattress – especially a pillowtop. Many consumers will grab the pillow portion of their mattress and try to man handle the mattress on their own. This is not a good idea. Instead you can ask a family member or a friend to help out and handle the other side while you rearrange or move your mattress. Doing this may just save your warranty and the last thing you need is a rip or tear in a brand new mattress set.

No stains – This can be a tricky one. There are the obvious ways that stains can be placed on a mattress such as incontinence and spillage of liquids like water, tea and soft drinks. (yes water will stain a mattress).

But the least known stain generator is human perspiration! The body can expel up to 2 pints of perspiration per day. This can lead to fairly large markings and stains on your mattress.

Did you ever get rid of an old mattress or help someone move a used mattress? Did you notice the stains on that mattress? The stains could be from anything but more than likely if the owner never had an accident on the mattress, the stains were caused by human sweat.

Perspiration is a naturally occurring process in the human body and mattress staining can be a down side to it…………… unless you have good mattress protection.

Advice: Get yourself a good mattress protector and use it from day one. A good protector will be waterproof, breathable & dust mite resistant. There are many on the market today but we here at Hard To Find Sheets carry the “Protect A Bed” brand exclusively.

We can point out ALL the details and features of the product here on our blog but we would much rather show you a video of all the benefits instead:

The bottom line in mattress protection is this – make sure you get it! Whether it be from our website or from your local bedding store, spend the the extra money now to save hundreds or even thousands of dollars at a later date.

Till next time, write in with your questions or comments. We love to hear from you.

Bed Sheets – The Truth About Thread Count

Bed Sheets – The Truth About Thread Count

When it comes to bed sheets, many retailers and manufacturers alike are using gray market advertising techniques to make claims of extremely high thread counts. An example would be a retailer counting a double ply or quad ply thread as double or quadruple the threads per inch – therefore artificially inflating the actual thread count of the sheet.

A double ply yarn consists of two shorter yarns twisted together to form a single longer yarn. When this is done, your sheets will naturally become heavier and your thread count of 1200 may really be a thread count of only 600. A quad ply yarn is of course four shorter yarns combined to make a single longer yarn thus making some 1200 thread count sheets a possible 400 thread count product.

Some are advertising 1000, 1200 & even 1500 thread count bed sheets without disclosing that the sheet is actually made up of a double or quad ply construction. This practice is seen by many in the business as deceptive or simply wrong.

The more is better principle is being broadcast to the consumer by retailers and manufacturers, but in reality, the longer the yarn, the type of yarn (that is another article) & the workmanship all play together in determining the quality and durability of your bed sheet.

So next time you see that 1500 thread count bed sheet advertised for a quarter of what it should be selling for – ask about the construction. Is it made up of single, double or even a quad ply yarn? By asking this question, you can determine the true thread count of the sheet. Also make sure you ask about the workmanship of the product. How well is this product made?

Until next time, thanks for visiting and as always feel free to contact us with any questions or comments that you may have.

We love to hear from you.

How To Measure Your Mattress For Proper Sheet Fit

How To Measure Your Mattress For Proper Sheet FitThe most common method of measuring a mattress for proper sheet fit is to place a thinner size stiff piece of card board between your mattress and box spring, allowing it to protrude 6 inches or more. Lay another piece of card board directly on top of your mattress allowing it to over hang and simply measure the distance between the two card boards. This will give you a good depth measurement of your mattress.

When it comes to today’s specialty sleep products mattress depth has become increasingly thicker. With all the layers of specialty foams, natural materials, comfort fillings and mattress pads, sleep systems and mattress sets can reach in excess of 22 inches in size.

These newer and thicker sets make for a more comfortable sleep but sheets and bedding can sometimes be a hard to find item. Therefore knowledge of your actual mattress thickness will make for a much easier shopping experience.

If you have any questions about measuring your mattress, sheet size or any general questions concerning bedding please feel free to contact us.

Split Size Bed Sheets -vs- Split Head Bed Sheets?

Split Size Bed Sheets -vs- Split Head Bed Sheets?

Did you know that even though both of these sheet sizes are hard to find and although they sound very much alike, they are far from being the same size of sheet?

The “Split Size” bed sheet refers to a sizing that will accommodate a bed that is split completely down the middle. Essentially, this bed is made up of two separate units. For example, a split king size bed will consist of two units measuring approximately 38″ x 80″ each. You will need split king size sheets for this type of sleep system.

The “Split Head Size” bed sheet refers to a sizing that will accommodate a sleep system that is also split down the middle BUT does not completely separate. In other words, this type of sleep system is adjustable and split but only at the top portion of the bed. This size of sheet is also commonly referred to as a “Split Top” sheet. Both descriptions are used for this size of bedding.

Many higher end mattress manufacturers produce both the split size and the split top/head size sleep systems. Some of the better know brands are Tempurpedic, Comfortaire, Dormia & Natura.

Materials used for these luxury sleep systems can be anything from regular coiled mattresses to latex, memory foam & even organic wool fill. Whatever the make up of the bed, your sheets are an important part of your sleep system.

As always if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us!
