Some mattress fillings may have been treated, mainly to meet the UK’s strict flammability regulations. Occasionally, this can cause a chemical smell, especially when the mattress is unwrapped for the first time. This is normal and should disappear after the mattress has been aired for the first few days. Airing your bed every day for a minimum of 20 minutes is good practice and will allow body moisture to evaporate.
DO Turn your mattress regularly Not all mattresses require turning however, if you have purchased a mattress which sleeps both sides, you should turn it over and rotate end to end every week for the first three months, then every three or four months after that. This will help the upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly. Mattress settlement is perfectly normal, however body impressions can be minimised if you follow these turning guidelines. Mattresses designed as Noturn should still be rotated regularly to optimize durability and performance. N.B. Mattresses are heavy so turning is usually a two person operation – don’t try this on your own!
DO NOT Bend or fold the mattress as this can damage the spring unit or Latex core this would invalidate your warranty.
Standing or jumping on your bed can cause damage – it’s best not to allow children to use the mattress as a trampoline.
Do purchase a mattress protector. This is a great way of protecting your mattress and keeping it in good condition. A washable cover will protect your mattress from stains, and you can also buy covers made from purpose made ‘barrier’ fabric if you have a dust allergy.
Keep your mattress clean Vacuum the mattress and base from time to time to remove any dust If your mattress gets stained, use a cloth with mild detergent and warm or cold water. Never soak a mattress.
