We've discussed in previous articles that it is important to flip or rotate your mattress from time to time to prevent sag. Sagging is caused by sleeping in the same position and location on the mattress over an extended period of time. However, what is that golden period of when you should re-orientate your mattress?
A flip mattress is designed so that both sides of the mattress can be used. It is a traditional method that is often times overlooked by the current trend which is a one sided mattress. However, there are many benefits of a flip mattress. One of which is the two sides can yield a different mattress quality, essentially giving you a two in one. If you have a flip mattress, you should flip it every 3 months to a year. Interested in learning more or trying a flip mattress?

If you have a regular, one-sided design, you will need to rotate your mattress instead. Luckily, the rule is also 3 months to once a year. The key is to monitor your mattress. If you noticed that it is sagging more than usual after a certain time period, then rotate or flip slightly before that length of time in the future. Each mattress is unique so by monitoring, you will get the best results.
