Buying a mattress is an investment, very similar to buying a car. It is something we need and use every day and is something that should be routinely cared for in order to keep it functioning in top shape. Most people may not think twice about caring for their mattress after bringing it home and setting it up in the bedroom, but like an oil change, it should be done to keep up the longevity and overall performance.
Mattress Care Instructions:
Your new sleep system is designed to conform to the contours of our bodies allowing you to have a comfortable, healthy night’s sleep. This process will occur within the first few nights of use. Over time the mattress set will break in and become more comfortable as you use it. To help minimize body impressions, maximize comfort and longevity of your sleep set, we recommend that you rotate you mattress ever two weeks for the first three months. By rotating the mattress, the cushioning and insulation materials will be evenly distributed to prevent wear in only certain areas of the mattress. Think of it like rotating new tires. To rotate a mattress, have someone help you move the foot of the bed to the head of the bed and repeat this process as stated above.
Other Mattress Care Considerations:
Proper Installation: Make sure your new mattress and foundation are properly installed at home. We strongly recommend having your new set delivered to you by Mattress Depot USA and set up for you to avoid any problems.
Protective Pads: Mattress encasements are the best way to protect your mattress from bed bugs and are machine washable, making your mattress easier to clean. Mattress pads also help keep the mattress protected from accidental stains.
Do Not Dry Clean: The chemicals in dry cleaning agents and spot removers may be harmful to the fabric or underlying materials of the mattress. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If you are determined to tackle a stain, use a mild and colorless soap with cold water and apply lightly. Never soak a mattress or a foundation.
Do Not Remove the Tag: Most manufacturers will not honor any warranty if the tag has been removed. The tag contains important information to identify the mattress if you need to file a warranty claim.
Jumping on the Bed: Getting a new mattress can be very exciting and you may want to jump up and down, but please not on the bed. Make sure kids know that it is not a toy. Jumping on the bed can harm the support system of the mattress.
No Boards: Never put a board between the mattress and the foundation. It may seem like it is enhancing the support and feel of the mattress but this will only make the problem worse over time. A good foundation is all you need such as a box spring which is designed to go with the mattress model you purchased.
