How Often Should a Mattress Be Turned?

Flipping or Rotating a Mattress

For optimal care, individuals should rotate mattresses between two and four times a year. Occasionally, it is necessary to turn it more frequently, such as if you notice wear or uneven spots. Also, partner sleepers will want to check both sides of the bed to see if more weight or pressure is being placed on a particular area.
