Receiving a new mattress
Once your mattress is delivered, air the mattress for at least 4 hours to remove any storage odours.
Rotate every 2 – 3 months, to ensure the pressure is spread evenly on the different set of springs. This will prevent focusing pressure on a singular area, which in turn, prevents your mattress from sagging.
Mattresses which can be flipped should also be flipped every once in a while.
Mattresses come clean, but the rest is up to you. Here are some ways to keep your mattress safe for sleeping on:
Change bed linens frequently
Spills/Dirt on the mattress
Wash mattress covers
Avoid lying down on the bed immediately after showers,
or when perspiring
Strictly no smoking, drinking or eating on the bed
Sun your mattress
Keep your room well-ventilated
Good habits for a longer lasting mattress
Avoid sitting on the edge of the mattress.
This is to prevent uneven distribution of weight and pressure on your mattress, that can cause some springs to wear out quicker than others.
No jumping on the bed.
Repeated point pressure applied in excess can compromise the integrity of the internal support of your mattress. It can also damage your bed frame.
Don't drag your mattress.
Mattresses may have to be moved during cleaning, or during a change of linens. Remember not to drag your mattress as this can damage its upholstery, which also serves to protect its inner structure.
Don't store your mattress on its narrow side.
If you won't be using your mattress for a while, avoid propping it up against the wall on its narrow side. This creates uneven pressure, especially for pocketed spring mattresses.
