I have a friend who recently bought a used mattress from an online site. It looked great and had all the features she wanted. She took it home, vacuumed it, and then put her best sheets on it. That night she sank gratefully in to the soft pillow top and drifted off to sleep . . . only to wake up a few hours later scratching and slapping at her skin. She flipped on the lights and found bites, bedbug bites, all over her body. Needless to say, after taking an hour-long shower, she dumped that mattress and made an emergency call to the exterminator.
Used mattresses are a risky purchase, and in the long run, investing in a new one will save you money. Buying a model with a good guarantee will result in years of worry-free ownership. Used mattresses can have many hidden and nasty problems, so going that route is always a risk and often a waste of your time and hard-earned cash.
