Your head’s just nestled into your soft pillow, you’re cocooned by your luxury mattress and your eyes close on the world for another day. Suddenly you hear ‘it’. It’s been driving you crazy for weeks and it’s there again, jolting you back awake, an unwanted squeak. A squeaky bed is a rather unwanted bed fellow and fortunately, a sleep issue which is easily resolved. With our sleep and bed expertise we’ll have your beautiful bed squeak-free in no time.

Find the Squeak

Before we can resolve the squeak, we must find the cause by checking the most common areas of friction: check your mattress and the spring, consider the bed slats and look at all the joints of the bed frame.

How to Fix a Squeaky Bed Frame

If the noise seems to be coming from within your mattress, it’s worth considering how long you’ve had your mattress as the internal springs maybe reaching the end of their life span. We always suggest replacing your mattress every 7 years. After 7 years you’ve spent an average of 20,000+ hours on your mattress, so to ensure the correct support for your body and a restful night’s sleep, consider a new mattress.

Alternatively, the squeak may be caused by the friction of the slats on the bed frame or the joints in the bed frame itself. Check all components such as bolts, screws, washers and nuts; it’s natural that over time and due to changing temperatures in our homes, these may work themselves a little loose and simply need tightening. The components may also need replacing if they’re not looking their best.

All our beautiful French beds are made from wood, so if you discover the cause of the squeak is coming from the slats or joints, rubbing a little candle wax on either side of the problem area will help ease the tension and the unwanted squeak.
