Love & Care | Mattresses

How to care for your mattress.

To prolong the life of your mattress and be more satisfied with its overall performance, please remember these following key points:

  • Use a mattress pad. This will protect your new set and help keep it clean. Covering the mattress will protect it from stain and soil and avoid having to clean it as described below. The cover should be washable, and easy to remove and put back on. Using the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner, vacuum your mattress and box springs periodically to remove dust from the surface.
  • Regularly rotate/turn non-foam mattresses end for end, and - if mattress is intended for double sided use - turn over so former bottom side is on top. This will allow the mattress to wear more evenly.
  • At some point your new mattress may reveal normal body impressions. This is normal and not a structural defect. The upholstery materials are conforming to the weight and shape of your body.
  • Do not bend the mattress. This could damage the innerspring or foam. It should only be carried on its side.

How to clean your mattress:

If the mattress fabric does become soiled or stained, it can be cleaned with an upholstery shampoo, following directions exactly. You can also use "dry suds", made by mixing mild detergent in warm water. Apply only the "dry suds" to a small area at a time using a soft brush or sponge; wipe with sponge wrung out of warm water. Do not get padding inside mattress wet.

Dry the area completely before covering or using mattress. Drying is faster with dry heated air. Using an electric fan blowing across the dampened area hastens drying.
