How do I care for my new Serta Mattress?
Reference www.serta.com "Mattress Care".
In order to protect the investment you have made and the performance of your mattress, please consider these valuable tips from your friends at Serta.
1. Expect some level of adjustment when sleeping on a new mattress. After all those years on your old bed, you may need some time to get used to the “feel” of the new set. It may take you a week or so, or it could be as short as the time it takes you to
2. Remember that the comfort layers of your mattress will probably “give” a little. Today’s resilient mattress materials are designed to conform to a sleeper’s individual contours. This can create normal body impressions. You can reduce them by rotating (not flipping) your mattress as needed.
3. Don’t forget your mattress’s matching foundation. Today’s mattresses use a matching foundation built to provide proper support and durability. Putting
4. Support your mattress with a good, solid bed frame. For best results, use a strong, stable foundation frame to keep your mattress set secure. To comply with Serta’s mattress warranty, queen and king-size beds require a metal bed frame (or bed base) with a rigid center support. Preferably, the center support for a queen should have one leg, while the center support for a king should have two legs.
5. Do not bend your mattress in order to get it in or out of a room. You can flex a mattress a little to go through doorways, but it can never be folded, curled or sharply bent. Doing so can damage the innerspring, cause comfort layers to shift and create an uneven sleeping surface.
6. Carry your mattress upright. It’s easier to handle and less likely to damage
7. Let your mattress breathe. A new mattress has been wrapped in plastic and needs a little time to air out before you put the sheets on. Take the plastic wrapping off the mattress and lean your new bed up against the wall to air it out all the way around.
8. Protect your new mattress. You’ll use your mattress far more than any other furniture in your home, so you’ll want to protect it. You may want to vacuum it once a year. Keep your bed clean and dry, and always use a quality mattress pad. It’s best not to stand or jump on your mattress, no matter how much fun it may be.
9. Good sleep sets don’t need boards. Contrary to popular opinion, a board between the mattress and the box spring won’t improve the level of support your mattress set will provide. In fact, if a board is used, your bed won’t last as long or perform as well.
10. Make sure your fitted sheets really fit. If you’ve selected a thicker mattress such as a pillow top, make sure you have sheets that will fit. You may need deep-pocket sheets, designed for extra thick and pillow top beds. Most major linen retailers offer deep-pocketed sheets to fit today’s thicker mattresses.
There is an 11th tip, too, that we’ve saved for last. (It would have saved the Serta Counting Sheep a lot of aggravation, had they paid attention to it.)
11. Keep that law tag on at the end of the mattress! If you tear it off, you won’t land in jail. But the tag has important manufacturing information about your mattress that you will need in the event of a warranty claim.
