To help refresh a musty mattress sprinkle baking soda on it. Let it sit for a day and then vacuum up the baking soda.
Put a protective cover over your mattresses. If you have kids that are prone to accidents, a vinyl cover works the best.
Get into the habit of flipping and rotating your mattress once a month. This will prevent one side from being worn down more than another.

FYI, our mattress is not to be flipped or rotated. There is a note at one
end clearly marking it as "head" and at the other as "foot." I don't
remember the brand.
Not only kids have accidents, adults as well. Plus all humans perspire up to 2 pints of liquid every night. Thus everybody needs to protect their mattress. Sleeping on vinyl makes you sweat. Vinyl is a non-breathable plastic. I would suggest a waterproof yet breathable mattress protector that can be washed hot and even sterilized at 250F.
