Why Should I Purchase An Inflatable Mattress

By Lisa Wood

You may have some questions when it comes to the air mattress. Will you be happy with your purchase after a while? Will it be easy to care for? What will you do if your mattress breaks? Here are some reasons you should trust that the inflatable bed will not only work for you, but work well.

First off, many different kind of these inflatable cushions exist. They make ones made especially for kids that are durable. Ones that are meant to be used only once, that are easy on the pocket. There are even ones made to go outside.

There aren’t many of these guys who are built to last more than a year. Still, the combined price of having to replace them is less than one traditional mattress. Besides that, you have the chance to get the upgrades and changes made each year as well.

These handy little things are the ideal travel companion. They can be quickly and easily broken down and folded. They’re also usually fairly light weight and can be packed into a trunk or a suitcase with ease.

Because these mattresses come in so many different sizes you could easily fit one into the mattress cache of a bed. Putting sheets and blankets over it just like any other mattress is a-okay. If, however, you only want to use it for extra bedding it’s not hard to store. Just release the air, fold it up, and shove it into a closet or under the other beds.

This kind of mattress isn’t all roses, though. With all the plus sides there is a negative one as well. You would have to be extremely careful while keeping one of these in your home. One hole and the mattress won’t hold air properly until it is repaired. The lack of springs might also be hard to get used to.

Accidents do happen and with as many sharp, pointy things in your house, you may not be willing to invest in a mattress that is so much like a balloon. Don’t worry. Even if your mattress gets a little hole in it, the hardest part of repairing it is finding where it is. Short term fixes lie in duct tape but for the long run there is special putty! This putty can be found at any place that sells the mattresses and is easy to apply and inexpensive.

Since you don’t always have to use much more than a blanket with these mattresses they come in a wide variety of colors. This can be a pleasing extra additive. Mattresses can be bought to mirror room decor or personal tastes.

They’re also easy to care for. Storing them in cool, clean places will go far. If they get dirty, clean up is a simple as taking a damp washcloth and wiping them down.

Making any kind of purchase can be stressful if you don’t know all the facts about the item you are buying. An air mattress is no different but in the end you’re the only one who can make the call. Get your information, figure out what you want, and go get it!
