Now that you’ve found your dream mattress, here a few simple steps you can take to ensure its longevity:
Once delivered, leave your mattress to air for around 4 hours and do so weekly between changing bed linen.
Use a washable mattress protector to avoid discolouration and marking.
Clean your mattress regularly by brushing or vacuuming (using the upholstery attachment) paying particular attention to the tuft buttons where dust can settle.
Let your mattress breath regularly by turning back the bedlinen for a few hours each week. Don't use the bed as a trampoline as this will cause irreparable damage to the mattress springs, filling and bed base.
Avoid sitting on the edge of your mattress, particularly Pocket Sprung mattresses, as this can warp the sides.
As a rule, never fold your mattress as this will affect the shape and evenness of the surface.
Do not use a vacuum cleaner without the upholstery attachment on your mattress as this can dislodge fillings, instead use a brush or cloth to remove dust and fluff.
