We have probably spent over 25% of our life sleeping. With that much of our life spent in bed, it makes sense that a clean, fresh, and comfortable mattress can go a long way toward mitigating stress, pressure and improving our health.
A good night sleep starts with a good bed. Mattresses deserve proper care just like how our body and mind needs great sleep.
