Mattress Care Guide
Caring for your bed
All beds sold on our site are made from the finest materials to exacting standards of workmanship.
However, like most new products, useful life-span depends on the amount of tender loving care the bed receives throughout its life.
Listed below are a few pointers to ensure that you enjoy many years of comfort from your bed:
Do not bend or roll your new mattress
Bending or rolling your new mattress will permanently damage the spring unit and also will invalidate your guarantee.
Let your new mattress breathe
We suggest after the removal of the packaging, you leave your new bed uncovered for a couple of hours to allow any condensation to escape.
WARNING: Please ensure that all polythene packaging is placed well out of reach of small children.
Turn your mattress regularly
Unless you have bought an easycare style mattress, which has been specifically designed not be turned, it is important that you turn your mattress at least once a week for the first couple of months, and then monthly thereafter. This will prolong the life-span of your mattress and minimise impression marks.
When turning your mattress please do not allow it to bang or fall against the side of the divan or base, as this can cause permanent damage to the spring unit.
It is recommended that you seek assistance in the turning procedure.
Getting used to your new bed
Occasionally your first night's sleep on a new bed may seem a little strange. You need to allow time for your body to adjust and nestle into your new bed. The length of time this takes depends on your sensitivity and speed to which your body adjusts to change. It can be within nights or maybe a little longer. But rest assured, once you have adjusted you will experience many good years of comfortable sleep.
Impression marks are perfectly normal
Due to modern day mattress fillings being more sumptuous than ever before, impression marks may be initially pronounced in the predominant sleeping areas.
Impression marks are quite normal and providing that the mattress is properly supported on a suitable base, will be minimised with regular turning.
Protect your mattress
We recommend that you use a mattress cover that will protect your new mattress from stains and spills. This will not only help to keep your new mattress in perfect condition, but will also protect your guarantee. Because the guarantee can be invalidated if your mattress is badly stained or soiled.
A new mattress cover will also absorb your body moisture, which will prolong the life of your new bed or mattress. The fact is that we lose over a pint and a half of body moisture and dead skin every night while sleeping, most of it directly into our beds. Unfortunately most mattresses absorb this moisture, which plays a significant part in the break down and deterioration of internal fillings and springs.
Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners
Using detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress is likely to damage the fabric and stitching.
