Caring for
your new bed

Just like all our furniture, our beds are designed to withstand general wear and tear. However, we recommend the following advice which will help keep your bed in top condition for as long as possible, ensuring you maximum sleep quality throughout its natural life. Never fold or bend the mattress, as this will distort the spring unit. Modern spring interior mattresses cannot be rolled for storage. Sitting on the edge of your mattress for long periods can affect its shape.

Regular, easy-care maintenance

Turn down the bed clothes every morning to allow the bed to cool down and breathe. If you have bought a “No Turn” mattress, with a single sleeping surface, it is important that you rotate your mattress regularly. For all other mattresses it is important that you turn and rotate your mattress once a week for the first two or three months and then monthly thereafter. This will prolong the life-span of your mattress. The drawers within a drawer divan are usually designed to hold lightweight items, such as bedlinen, and should not be overloaded.

Mattresses & divans – getting used to your bed

Chances are that the springs and upholstery in your old bed were not what they used to be, so your new bed may seem a little strange at first. Please allow time for your body to adjust to your new bed and for the fillings to settle. 

Settlement is normal

Your mattress WILL show signs of filling settlement, also known as body shaped impressions, and this is completely normal. The fillings will settle and mould to your body contours over a relatively short period and is particularly obvious around the hips and lumbar area as 65% of our body weight is located here when lying down. It is a natural process and is not detrimental to long term durability. The visual appearance is dependent on the type and amount of fillings used. As a general rule a mattress with more fillings will show moreevidence of settlement. Whilst rotating the mattress will help with the visual appearance, it will not eliminate it. Do not be concerned if your mattress appears shorter than its divan on delivery. Once in use, it will return to its correct size.

Let your mattress breathe

After its removal from the packaging, please leave your bed uncovered for a few hours to allow any odours and condensation to escape. Please ensure that the polythene bag is well out of reach of small children.

Protect your mattress

We recommend that you use a mattress cover which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners. Using detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress is likely to damage the fabric and stitching.
