Ok, so you are aware of the fact that you are supposed to be flipping and rotating your mattresses. You get the message that this is what will produce the most even wear out of it. But, do you really know how often you are supposed to be doing this chore? And have you any idea of when you last did this, or in which direction. I’m guessing the answers are not good ones.
Mattresses are expensive pieces of furniture, and you and your families bodily health is of even greater value. Perhaps, in light of this, you should be more diligent in your upkeep with them then. So here’s how, you go about it. The proper amount of time to lapse in between turns and rotations is four months. Yep, I know this is a quarterly system, and you were probably doing it every year, if that.
Now, it is also time that you start to write down the month you did the act last, and which direction the rotation is meant to proceed the next time. I write mine in the phone book cover, some people put an alert on their computer, or cell phone. Whatever will keep you on track, do it, and then rest easy.
