Do Adjustable Beds Damage Mattresses?

The simple answer is no—an adjustable base will not damage or ruin your mattress. As long as you’re choosing a mattress that is compatible with an adjustable, you have nothing to worry about.

Most mattresses these days are made with flexible materials, which is exactly what you want when you’re pairing it with an adjustable base. After all, a lot of these mattresses (including GhostBed’s lineup) get rolled up and vacuum-sealed into a small box—talk about flexibility! When you think about that, you can imagine it’ll withstand the movement of your base just fine.

If you want added peace of mind, however, there are a few things you can look for. We’ll review those next.

How to Shop for a Mattress & Adjustable Base

In addition to choosing the right mattress, it’s smart to do your research and make sure you’re investing in a high-quality adjustable base.

Here’s what to look for:

1. Manufacturing Expertise

We get it: there are a lot of companies out there to choose from. So how do you know if you’re getting a high-quality product?

Here at GhostBed, we’re proud of our longstanding history and expertise in the manufacturing space. I got my start from an early age, learning from my grandfather and my dad as they ran the Werner Ladder Company. I was able to learn the science behind building everyday products that stand the test of time. I also learned how to be curious, how to treat my team, and most importantly, how to constantly improve.

When I was ready to start my own company in the early 2000s, I was able to pull from those years of experience and learning. It was like second nature for me to source the best materials and partner with the best facilities.

All that to say—we know what we’re doing. And that goes a long way!

2. An Industry-Leading Warranty

While you shouldn’t expect your mattress or your adjustable base to wear out prematurely, a warranty will protect you if anything does go wrong. We’re proud to offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty on our base, and we rarely get claims.

The same goes for our mattresses. The general advice is to replace your mattress every seven years or so, but if you’ve bought a low-grade model from another company, it may only last a year or two. With GhostBed, we’re so confident in our mattresses that we’ve got your back for 20+ years.

Don’t Worry, Sleep Happy

Here at GhostBed, we want nothing more than for everyone to get the restorative sleep they deserve. An adjustable base is a great way to do just that!

With a little shopping know-how, you don’t have to worry about an adjustable base damaging your mattress. We hope we’ve cleared that up!
