Eight Mattress Care Tips
- It is normal to experience an adjustment period after switching to a new mattress, especially if you had been sleeping on your last mattress for a long time. You should allow up to 30 days for your body to adjust to a new level of comfort and support.
- Remember that mattress foams and fibers will be subjected to normal wear over time. To reduce normal wear, you can rotate your mattress as needed.
- Buy a matching box divan (also referred to as a foundation) to insure proper support and lasting durability.
- If you have to move your mattress, always carry it upright. Never bend your mattress to get it in or out of a room. It may flex a little through doorways, but it shouldn’t be folded, curled, or sharply bent.
- Let your mattress breathe. A new mattress has been wrapped in plastic and needs time to air out before you put on the sheets. Lean your new bed against the wall to air out all the way around.
- Protect your new mattress. Vacuum it once a year; keep your bed clean and dry; always use a quality mattress protector.
- Make sure your fitted sheets really fit. Deep-pocket sheets are carried by most major linen retailers and are designed for extra thick and pillow top beds.
- Keep your warranty card. It has important manufacturing information about your mattress that you will need in the event of a warranty claim.
