Sleeping Hot? Here’s How To Keep Your Mattress Cool.
If you are sleeping on a memory foam mattress, you likely have nights where you just can’t seem to cool down. Because memory foam is composed of synthetic materials, they have a tendency to retain heat that can result in you tossing and turning or making frequent trips to the thermostat throughout the night. If you are sleeping hot, here are some ways you can help keep your mattress cool.
Invest In a Mattress Cover
Mattress covers can play an important role in keeping your mattress cool while protecting it from stains and spills. As you sleep and begin to sweat, a mattress cover made of absorbent and breathable materials can wick sweat away from your body to keep you cooler throughout the night. However, this process means that you will need to regularly wash the cover to ensure it doesn’t retain sweat and develop a smell.
In order to keep your mattress cool, you will need to ensure that the space beneath your mattress has plenty of room to breathe and circulate air. This means that if you have a solid wood foundation or the space under your bed has become a storage location, you are providing insulation that promotes heat retention. To avoid this, keep the area beneath your bed clear of items and use a bed frame that provides adequate airflow.
Install a Cooling Mattress Topper
If the other two tips haven’t quite made your mattress cool enough, you may be interested in installing a cooling mattress topper. Although they can change the overall feel of your mattress, it’s one of the easiest ways to ensure you are comfortable throughout the night if you like a cooler than average bed. In most cases, gel foam or natural cotton will provide the needed support and temperature control you are looking for.
