What To Expect From Your New Mattress
Many of today's top-quality mattresses use technologically advanced foams and fibers that are designed to be softer and more comfortable while ensuring your body has the support you need for good health. By cradling your body, these materials relieve pressure and are so comfortable that you'll probably toss and turn less in the night. For that reason, in the first few weeks you sleep on a new mattress that offers these extra comfort layers, you will likely notice some body impressions on the mattress surface. These impressions are normal and shouldn't be considered a sign that something is wrong with your new mattress. Unless your mattress care instructions indicate otherwise, you may want to rotate your mattress from end-to-end and from top-to-bottom. After a few weeks, the impressions will begin to smooth out and, over time, disappear.
You may feel a slight discomfort with your new mattress for the first week or so, this is normal and to be expected, your body is used to the old mattress and your new one is now supporting your body.
It may take up to 2 weeks for your body to adjust to your new mattress.
The mattress should conform to you, NOT you to it.
Rotate your mattress as often as the warranty card reads.
The layers of upholstery in old mattresses have become compressed and flattened over the years. Upholstery layers in a new mattress have a certain amount of air in these materials. In addition, a break in period is required. This is when new materials begin to settle and conform to the shapes and curves of the body. This takes time. While this adjustment is taking place, creases, or "comfort wrinkles," may be noticeable. This is a natural process and these creases are not defects. To help the new sleep system complete this adjustment to personal needs, the sleep set needs to be maintained. This settling of materials can be evened out by rotating the mattress on a regular basis. It is recommended that the mattress is alternately turned once every two weeks for the first three months, and then twice per year after that. The foundation should also be turned every 12 months.
The other part of the bedding investment is the use of a proper frame. A queen or king sized bed needs to have a frame with a center support to compensate for any set. We also strongly recommend center support for full size sets of bedding. The difference in size between a queen and a full is minute (only 6 inches in width and only 5 inches in length). While not required by the manufacturer, Bed Pros has found that your full size set of bedding will perform better and last longer with center support!
Vacuuming is the only recommended way to clean a mattress. A Platinum Mattress Protector will help keep the sleep set free from stains.
