We often get asked "why do beds squeak?" If your mattress sounds like it has an angy donkey stuck inside, there are a few reasons why this could be happening.
Why do beds squeak?
Most times the squeak you are hearing is from the base of the bed. This is often due to wood rubbing on wood. This is why it is advisable to buy a set and not just a new mattress. You could damage a new mattress if you place it in a broken or compromised base.

I thought it's a good time to talk about the best beds for runners as today is the 94th Comrades Marathon. As we speak 25 000 runners are making their way from Durban to Pietermaritzburg in one of the world's most epic races.
One of the most important things for a runner is getting a good night's sleep. Sleep is when the body restores and repairs itself. Without proper sleep the body becomes fatigued and doesn't function as it should.
You don't have to be an ultra-marathon competitor though. Even if...
A memory foam mattress will give you a luxurious sleeping surface and a great night's sleep.
To begin, what is memory foam?
This material has come a long way since it was first developed in the 1970s under contract to NASA. The brief was to create a substance that would improve the cushioning of seats as well as provide protection for airline pilots and passengers in the event of a crash.
Memory Foam is made from a polyurethane material sensitive to heat and temperature. When something is pressed into memory foam, it takes...
When thinking about beds for the elderly, there are a few things to consider:
the support it provides,
the height of the bed,
and its type of comfort.
What do we mean by support?
This refers to the manner in which the mattress supports the proper alignment of the body.
For example a Restonic bed is the "mattress with the marvellous middle". This patented design gives extra support to the centre of the bed where your body is at its heaviest. Another example is the the Cloud Nine mattress which has a...
Have you ever wondered how hotel beds are so comfortable? One of the contributing reasons is that most often they are Medium-Firm comfort. This is the most popular comfort preference- not too hard and not too soft.

The support the bed provides comes from its inner core - either a spring system or a speciality...

Customers often ask what are the best beds for kids.
It doesn't always make sense to get an expensive mattress for a child. Children are lighter than adults and do not require as much support. It is also common for children to wet their beds, especially when they are learning to sleep without a nappy.
In the early years a cheaper mattress is sufficient and, as they grow older and need more support, you can invest in a better bed.
