Your futon bed mattress will last longer if you care for it properly. Flip your futon mattress once a month if you are using it as a sofa. Rotate it each time you change the sheets if the futon is being used as a bed. Buy a mattress pad or a vinyl sheet to protect it from stains if the futon is being used as a bed. The sheet or pad goes between the fitted sheet and futon mattress. Another good tip is to hang your futon outside in the sun to keep it fresh. Do this once every six months, if possible.
