In order to ensure your sleep product performs to its best, some simple yet important steps must be taken from time to time.

Mattress set up
  • Always use a mattress protector. It’s a simple, hygienic way to keep the mattress clean.
  • In order to provide the correct support for your mattress the base it is going on must be in good order. Check that the base is not sagging. If the mattress is going on a timber slat base, check that the slats are no more than 9cm apart. We recommend a centre support rail for all slat bases for double sizes and above.
  • If the mattress is going on a timber slat base (where the mattress is positioned directly onto wood) it is recommended that a mattress protector or other insulating material be placed between the mattress and slats to prevent damage, such as pulling of the mattress fabric.

 

Mattress maintenance 
  • Rotating the mattress allows use to be spread across all sleeping areas. Mattress rotation needs to be done every two weeks for the first three months and monthly thereafter. Please refer to the turning instructions below.

-For single-sided mattresses (comfort layers on one side only), the mattress should be turned end to end only.

-For double-sided mattresses (comfort layers on both sides), the mattress should be turned end to end and upside down.

 

Turning Instructions (follow the diagram below):

1. Grasp the mattress corners and spin the mattress clockwise, 90 degrees across the base

2. Tip the mattress up on its edge and then roll it over so a new sleeping surface is presented

3. Now grasp the mattress corners and rotate the mattress clockwise until the mattress is again aligned with the base

4. Your mattress has now been turned end to end and upside down.

  • If your mattress has handles, it is important to remember that these are only to be used for positioning the mattress once it is on the base. These are not design to carry the weight of the mattress and must not be used for lifting it.
  • Avoid sitting on the mattress edge as this could damage the frame, spring or border.
  • Air your mattress periodically.
  • Remember that if this mattress is firmer or softer than the one its replacing, it could up to 30 days for your body to adjust.
  • Base and Bed Head Care
    • When assembling, take care not to damage the thread of the leg/castor or t-nut in the base or bed head.
    • Legs and castors should be tightened regularly.

Further informationF&Q

What are body impressions?

Body impressions appear as indentations on the surface of any new mattress where foams and upholstery levels settle.  Generally, body impressions are considered normal and not a structural defect.  Body impressions indicate the mattress is performing appropriately; contouring to your body shape for comfort.  Rotating your mattress according to the care instructions will ensure the mattress wears evenly.

My new mattress feels different to my old one.

Sometimes, people find that when they change to sleeping on a new bed, they may take a couple of weeks to adjust. We suggest allowing up to one month to adjust to the different comfort and support that your new mattress provides.

Will my mattress feel like the one I tried?

Some factors can influence the feel of your mattress at home and might make it feel a little different to the model tried at the store. Such factors include (but are not limited to) ambient temperature, heat transfer from body contact, type of mattress protector, type of bedding and the type of base. Further, a new mattress will take some time to settle when compared with the showroom model.

Will my mattress feel the same for the duration of the guarantee period?

All mattresses generally soften slightly over the first few months as the foams adjust and settle to the body’s contours, with regular rotation according to the care instructions. After this period, the foams should level to their final position.

What happens if I experience a heat issue with my mattress?

If you are sleeping on a pillow top mattress, the comfort layers in the top of the mattress will conform to the shape of your body. The softer the comfort layer, the deeper you will sink into your mattress. Should you experience a heat issue with your mattress, there are a number of options that may help which include using a cotton, wool or gel underlay and using cotton sheets with a lower thread count.

The edge of the mattress feels firmer.

If you have chosen a mattress with a pocket spring unit, sometimes these mattresses are constructed with a ‘foam box’. In this type of product the pocket spring unit is surrounded by high density foam box walls. When lying on a pocket spring mattress with a foam box construction you may find the edges of the mattress to feel a little firmer than the rest of the mattress.
