MATTRESS CARE AND HANDLING INFORMATION
Consider your mattress and foundation as “sleep equipment” that needs to be cared for in order to assure the best hygiene
and performance. It’s important to follow mattress care instructions from the maker of your mattress as products vary greatly.
However in general it’s important to know about the following:
Proper Installation: Make sure your mattress and foundation are properly installed in you home.
Improper installation can damage your sleep set. It is strongly advised to have the mattress set professionally delivered and set
up for you. If you choose to transport and install the set on your own it is best to get the advice from someone with moving experience
so they can help you avoid any problems.
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. It also protects your mattress warranty.
Let it Breathe: If you detect a slight odor, leave the mattress and foundation uncovered and well ventilated
for a few hours. A breath of fresh air should do the trick!
Give it Good Support: Use one of Mattress Liquidation’s sturdy bed frames. If it’s a queen mattress or king size mattress set,
make sure your frame has the adequate center support that will prevent bowing or breakage. Today’s full size mattresses are heavier
so we recommend Mattress Liquidation’s re-enforced frame.
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.
It’s not a trampoline: Your mattress set is designed for sleeping on – Not to play on – it is not a toy!
Don’t let the kids jump on your sleep set. Their rough-housing could do damage to the interior construction, as well as to themselves!
No boards, please: Never put a board between the mattress and the 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”, it
is time to get rid of it and get a new mattress set.
If you purchase a Mattress only: This is never recommended. When you purchase a mattress set, you know the mattress
and the foundation will last. If you purchase a mattress only and decide to place the mattress on an existing box, you run the risk of the box wearing
out before the mattress. Keep in mind the mattress is supported by your foundation. If the foundation is defective, the mattress will sag or dip
on the exact same spot. This will affect your warranty. If you don’t buy the set you will run the risk of voiding your mattress warranty.
Don’t place a mattress on support boards: It’s crazy from time to time customers have decided to save a couple of dollars
and place there new mattress on wooden frame slats designed to support a foundation. This will void you warranty (every time).
Body Conformity is Normal: Your sleep system is designed to conform to the contours of your body allowing you a comfortable,
healthy night’s sleep. Body conformity will usually take place within the first nights, certainly within the first few weeks of use. Just like a new pair of shoes,
a set of bedding will break in with the individual using it and become even more comfortable with use. If you notice some impressions,
don’t worry, this means that your mattress is conforming to your body.
To help minimize body impressions and to maximize comfort and longevity of your sleep set, we recommend that you rotate your mattress
every two weeks in the first three months; and thereafter, once every two months. By rotating your mattress the cushioning and insulation materials
will be evenly and properly distributed.
