Find out how to pinpoint and fix the squeak on your bed and how to guarantee that your next bed will be 100% squeak and hassle free!
Lack of sleep can be for many reasons, but one of the most common is because of a squeaky bed, which is keeping you or your partner awake.
Follow these useful tips to find out where the noise is coming from and most importantly how to stop it. You'll also get the chance to find out more about Revival Beds, who have been handcrafting squeak-free bed frames in their Nottinghamshire workshops since 1983.
Isolating the squeak
Find the cause of the problem by checking the most common areas of a bed. Check the mattress and its springs, the slats and the joints of the bed frame itself.
How to fix squeaking bed frames
If the issue is coming from the mattress, then check how long you have had it. If it is over 7 years old, then it will be time to replace it. Not only may it be the cause of the noise, but there is also a good chance that it is no longer providing you with the adequate support for your body and spine during sleep.
If the squeak is coming from the slats or the joints, then check that all the components are tight and have not become loose. Also make sure that any components such as bolts, screws and washers are in excellent condition and don't need replacing. If you have a metal bed, it would also help to lubricate the joints with maintenance spray and if you have a solid wooden bed, rub some candle wax between the joints.
Because wood is a natural product there can often be slight movement between the warmer and colder seasons, so it is always a good idea to check and tighten the joints if necessary.
How to purchase a quiet bed frame
A good quality wooden bed should always be 100% squeak free and quiet when turning during the night. It should also be manufactured using the best materials and components. When looking to purchase a new bed, always make sure it will not squeak. Check with the manufacturer and ask if this is included in the guarantee. Also, ask how the bed is constructed and if self-assembly is required.
