Before using for the first time
Initially your new mattress can seem a bit too firm. Allow one month for your body to get used to the mattress and for the mattress to get used to your body.
To get the best comfort you need the right pillow. Make sure that you have a pillow that suits you and your new mattress.
Roll packed mattresses regain their shape after 3-4 days of use.
All new materials have their own particular smell, which gradually disappears. Airing and vacuuming the mattress will help to eliminate the smell.
90 days exchange policy
It’s important to us that you sleep well on your new mattress. Should you discover that it isn’t completely to your satisfaction after allowing one month for your body to get used to the mattress – bring the mattress back and try out a new one. You have 90 days to sleep on it!
Care and cleaning
Complement the mattress with a mattress protector or a mattress pad. It makes it more hygienic, as it is easy to remove and clean. Some mattresses and pads have a washable cover. Read the tag inside the cover for more information. Make sure that the zipper is closed when washing the mattress cover. Vacuuming the mattress helps to remove dust and mites. Use upholstery cleaner to remove stains.
If your mattress is turnable you should turn it about every three months. Turning a mattress ensures more even wear and helps to prolong its comfort.
Don’t fold the mattress. It can damage the springs and materials inside.
Even the best mattresses become less comfortable with age, and all mattresses accumulate dust and mites over the years. So even if the mattresses have a 25-year guarantee, we still recommend that you change your mattress every 8–10 years.
This guarantee gives you specific legal rights, and is in addition to your statutory legal rights.
