What To Expect and How To Care For Your New Mattress
- If your new mattress is not comfortable right away, don't be concerned. Much like a new pair of shoes, a new mattress needs time to break in. You must get used to your new mattress, and your new mattress must get used to you! Your new mattress may feel slightly different at first than the mattress in the showroom. Do not be alarmed. This is because the mattresses on the showroom floor have been gently used, and yours has not.
- Rotating your new mattress monthly will help it wear evenly, break in properly and help your new mattress live its fullest life. This may sound excessive, but a mattress is an investment and should be properly taken care of.
- A proper foundation/box spring is crucial for optimal mattress performance. You should NOT place a new mattress on an old box spring. It will greatly reduce the life of the mattress, and may void your warranty.
- A proper bed frame is also crucial for optimal mattress performance. So the mattress does not bow in the middle, bed frames need to have sufficient support in the center that touch the floor. Make sure to check your frame. If you are unsure, please contact the store. We have additional center support structures for a minimal cost.
