There’s nothing quite like getting a full night’s rest. Adults between the ages of eighteen to sixty are recommended to get at least seven full hours of sleep to be considered ‘well rested’ for the upcoming day. Teenagers need even more (and, given the opportunity, will happily take it). While our houses may very well be our castles, our bedrooms are hallowed ground within. What happens when the tranquility of your inner sanctum has been shattered thanks to an old, squeaky metal bed frame, or an uncomfortably lumpy mattress top? Believe it or not, lack of undisturbed sleeping time can lead to some fairly dire real world consequences. Some potential problems associated with sleep deprivation are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure or stroke. It can even affect your appearance! Making sure that your sleeping area is both relaxing and comfortable is therefore reasonably important. If your bedding was previously calming but no longer helps you sleep like it once did, the Junk Goats Junk Removal Service Richmond team serving the greater Richmond metro area is more than happy to help with mattress removal so you can get back to counting sheep and collecting z’s.
Bedroom furniture has evolved throughout the ages and is now a staple in most every single abode. When we talk about a ‘bed’ we are usually speaking about several different pieces of furniture combined: a frame, sometimes with headboard and footboard, to keep the bed’s shape; a box spring mattress to help give a solid foundation; a soft mattress that goes on top of the box spring to be slept upon. Discounting cribs and beds made for children specifically, there are generally six sizes for mattresses. They are:
- Twin (75 inches long by 38 inches wide)
- Twin XL (80 inches long by 38 inches wide)
- Full (75 inches long by 53 inches wide)
- Queen (80 inches long by 60 inches wide)
- King (80 inches long by 76 inches wide)
- California King (84 inches long by 72 inches wide)
