Rome is credited with the next big innovation in resting comfort around 200 B.C.E. when cloth sacks were stuffed with softer materials like wool. Rome's wealthy citizens enjoyed mattresses made of sacks filled with down feathers. By this time, beds were raised off the ground onto platforms. Sleeping off the ground avoids pests and drafts; and the ruling Roman class wanted nothing to do with either. Raising the bed off the ground also serves to make it easier to get into and out of bed, and supporting the mattress in a frame helped it retain its shape.
However, we cant always figure it out when it is the right time to replace the old mattress. Some of the signs are not so obvious. The dust that is absorbed over time can cause headaches, fatigue or depression. Even the best mattresses arent resistant to household allergens. It is proven that the latex mattress is the best for allergy sufferers.
Wood from traditional style mattresses and box springs will be gladly accepted for repurposing by people who enjoy building things and fixing things around the home. Chances are good that these same persons would appreciate the donation of the heavy duty steel inner springs, for use in new projects. These springs can be painted and used in creating unique garden art.
