Caring for Your Mattress

Proper Installation.  Make sure your new mattress and foundation are properly installed in your home.  Improper installation can damage your new sleep set.

Use a protective pad.  A good quality, washable mattress pad (and one for the foundation, too, if you like) is a must to keep your set fresh and free from stains.

Give it good support.  Be sure to use a sturdy, high-quality bed frame. If it’s a queen or king size set, make sure your frame has the strong center support that will prevent the mattress from bowing or breakage.

Rotate /Flip.  Periodically rotate your mattress from head to foot. If it is 2 sided flip it over. A good way to remember is to rotate/flip every change of season.

Don’t dry clean.  The chemicals in dry cleaning agents/spot removers may be harmful to the fabric or underlying materials. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method.  But if you’re determined to tackle a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly.  Do not ever soak a mattress or foundation.

Don’t remove the tag.  Contrary to popular belief, it’s not illegal to remove the law tag, but the information on the label will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim.

It’s not a trampoline.   Don’t let the kids jump on your sleep set.  Their rough-housing could do damage to the interior construction of your bed, as well as to themselves!

No boards, please.  Never put a board between the mattress and foundation. It may enhance the sense of support for a while, but it will only make the problem worse over time.  When any bed in your home has reached the “board stage,” get rid of it, and replace it with a brand new My Green Mattress!
