How to Pick a Mattress for Group Living Facilities

Posted by Janet Voigt on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 @ 08:00 AM

A good bed frame is important, but it’s hard to sleep on without the right mattress. Buying a mattress can be tricky for anyone, but it’s even harder when you have to buy several of them for a group living facility.

The prospect of ordering dozens of mattresses is an expensive one, so it’s important that you find quality options that will last a long time and provide the right properties for your consumers. Here are some tips to help you pick out mattresses for your facility.

Confirm Bed SizesGroupHomeMattresses.jpg

Before you pick out a mattress, it’s important to know what size mattresses you’ll need for your beds, because a full mattress won’t work out too well on a twin bed frame. Contract furniture sellers offer a wide range of mattresses, but they won’t be able to guess the size of your beds. Measure the length and width of your beds and compare the measurements to mattress sizes to make sure you don’t order the wrong ones.

Select a Mattress Style

There are a few different mattress styles that buyers can select. These include box spring and innerspring mattresses made with a coiled support systems and fiber core or foam core mattresses made with various thicknesses and densities.

Not sure what mattress is the best option for your consumers? A design consultant from a furniture contract seller can point about benefits of each style and suggest which one is right for the people at your facility.

Invest in Mattress Covers

Nobody wants to deal with a stained mattress. Accidents can happen in group living facilities, which is why fluid-resistant mattress covers are designed to keep body fluid and spills from permeating your mattresses.

Fluids aren’t the only things you need to watch for. Bed bugs can quickly spread to several areas in group living facilities, leading to several headaches and a need for exterminators. Bed bug resistant mattress covers can help you avoid unfortunate infestations and keep patients comfortable.
