What are the things I should look for when buying mattresses for a Shelter?
Apr. 25, 2023


When buying mattresses for a shelter, there are a few things you should consider to ensure you get the best value for your budget and provide the most comfortable and supportive sleeping surface for your clients. Here are some things to look for:

  1. Durability: Look for mattresses made from high-quality materials that can withstand frequent use and heavy wear and tear. You'll want to invest in mattresses that will last for several years to minimize the need for replacements. (Our vinyl mattresses are made two flippable so you can sleep on either side for added lifespan)

  2. Comfort: Comfort is essential when it comes to mattresses. Choose mattresses that are soft enough to provide cushioning and support for a good night's sleep, but not so soft that they cause discomfort or pain. Consider different firmness levels to suit different sleeping preferences.

  3. Hygiene: Look for mattresses that are easy to clean and maintain. Mattresses with waterproof covers or removable covers that can be washed are ideal for a shelter environment where cleanliness is crucial.

  4. Size: Make sure the mattresses you choose fit the beds in your shelter. Twin or full-size mattresses are the most common sizes for shelters, but you may need to consider other sizes if your clients have specific needs.

  5. Budget: Set a budget and stick to it, but keep in mind that investing in higher quality mattresses may save you money in the long run by reducing the need for frequent replacements.

  6. Safety: Ensure that the mattresses meet safety standards and regulations, and are free from any harmful chemicals or substances.

By considering these factors when buying mattresses for a shelter, you can provide your clients with a safe and comfortable sleeping environment, promoting restful sleep and improved well-being.
