Mattress Care Guide

Your new mattress set has been carefully designed with your comfort and support in mind. At first, it may seem quite different from the mattress you have been sleeping on. This is normal, and you will soon become adjusted to the extra comfort and support of your sleep set. Follow these helpful hints on mattress care and your purchase will provide years of added comfort and performance.

Dos & Don'ts of Mattress Care

Do purchase a sleep set. The matching box spring works with the mattress to provide the right support. In some instances, failure to use a proper box spring could void the warranty and may lead to damage, unsatisfactory performance or reduced mattress life.

DO use a protective pad. A good quality, washable mattress pad (and one for the box spring, too, if you like) is a must to keep your set fresh, dry and free from stains. A waterproof pad is a good idea if there are children or pets in the home.

DON'T dry clean. The chemicals in dry cleaning agents/spot removers may be harmful to the fabric or underlying materials. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. But if you’re determined to tackle a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly. Don’t ever soak a mattress or box spring.

DON'T remove that 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.

Sleep Tips

The following tips are intended to help improve your quality of sleep. By doing so, you will help improve your quality of life as well. Getting a good night’s sleep allows you to get the rest you need to be ready for the day ahead. And with every good night, there is chance for a good morning… and perhaps an even better day.

  • Wake up at the same time every morning.

  • Avoid caffeine too close to bedtime as it tends to keep you awake.
  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine, which lead to poor, disruptive sleep.
