Firm futon mattress is an essential element to remedy back aches and pains. A well made futon mattress with natural fillings will provide a surface to keep the spine aligned. As a result the heavier parts of your body such as hips and shoulders will be supported.
Often, mattresses become old and tired. The fillings collapse and that creates lumps and bumps that is the central problem. An old mattress maybe firm but not in a good way.
Too Firm Futon Mattress
Older futons that suffer neglect will compact and be very heavy to handle. It's a signal to get a new one. There's such a thing as too firm. The condition of your mattress is critical given we spend a third of our lives on a mattress.
New Firm Futon Mattress
When you purchase a new futon mattress the layers of filling contain a lot of air.Traditionally this kind of mattress will lose about 15% of its "loft" as the air gets squeezed out with regular use. This is normal and so long as you turn your mattress from time to time it will keep it in good shape and wear evenly.
Furthermore it's important to avoid old bed mattresses with coil or pocket springs. These mattresses will be uncomfortable and give uneven support. Back ache, time off work, visiting the doctor are just a few of the consequences therefore best invest in a new firm futon mattress.
Why so old?
For many years I had specialist futon furniture stores in Scandinavia and Benelux countries. Over the 40 years I have been involved in manufacturing and selling futon mattresses one thing stood out. British people suffer in silence and would prefer to have backache than buy a new mattress.
Try and change your tired old firm futon mattress for a new firm version.
