Congratulations on your purchase of your new mattress! New bedding needs to be cared for in order to assure the best hygiene and performance. It's important to follow mattress care instructions from the manufacturer to ensure you get the most out of your new investment!. The following tips will help your new bed maintain its comfort and longevity for years to come:
Mattress Care Instructions
Body conformity is normal in quality mattresses. Your new sleep system is designed to conform to the contours of your body allowing you a comfortable, healthy night's sleep. Body conformity will usually take place within the first nights, certainly within the first few weeks and months of use. Just like a new pair of shoes, a set of bedding will break in with the individual using it and become even more comfortable with use. If you notice some impressions, don't worry, this means that your mattress is conforming to your body.
To help minimize body impressions and to maximize comfort and longevity of your sleep set, we recommend that you rotate your mattress every two weeks in the first three months; and thereafter, once every two months. By rotating your mattress the cushioning and insulation materials will be evenly and properly distributed.
Support comes from the bottom up
A sturdy bed frame is a must! King and Queen sets should have at least one center support and it is now recommended that you have one for some of the heavier full sets. The better the frame, the longer the bed will last!
Use a Protective Mattress Pad
A good quality mattress pad is a must to keep your set fresh and free from stains. Try to purchase one a waterproof one, as it will not only protect the bed from any human, pet, or beverage fluids, it will protect the bed from dust mites. Manufacturers also reserve the right to decline any warranty issue if your mattress is stained.
Don't remove the law tag
Contrary to popular belief, it's not illegal to remove the law tag, but the information on the label will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim. Most manufacturers will not honor a warranty without these tags attached.
Your bed is not a toy!
Your new mattress set is designed for sleeping on - Not to jump on! Children using your bed as a trampoline could do damage to the interior construction, as well as to themselves!
Never put a board between the mattress and foundation.
Although it may enhance the sense of support for a while, mattresses and box springs are meant to work together as one unit. Putting a board in between the mattress and foundation will only shorten the life of the mattress!
