You just invested in a mattress that is perfect for you

Taking care of your mattress will increase it’s longevity and provide you with the best night’s sleep. Here are a few tips on how best to take care of your mattress, from the sleep associates at Cloud 9:

Moving Your Mattress

Make sure you take care when moving your mattress onto its frame, and when you periodically rotate it. Enlist the help of a friend to ensure your mattress is not dropped or stressed by its weight being improperly supported during installation or rotation.

Rotate To Take Care Of Your Mattress

Your mattress should be rotated end to end, and if applicable, from top to bottom. This will spread out the wear more evenly across the mattress. Kind of like a new set of tires; it is best to rotate them for even wear and tear.

Use a Protective Pad

A good quality, washable mattress pad will go a long way to protecting your mattress investment. Anything spilled on your mattress may void it's warranty. Also, an old spill of any kind will leave behind particles even with the best cleanup, and over time may spread bacteria and/or even mold within your mattress.

If you are unsure of the kind of pad to use with your mattress, read the warranty and instructions that came with your mattress, or call the manufacturer.

Don’t Dry Clean Your Mattress

Hand on Mattress

The chemicals in spot removers/cleaners may harm the fabric or underlying materials in your mattress. It is best to follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions for your mattress.

Vacuuming is a common cleaning method you could use to take care of your mattress. If you are determined to clean a spot, dab the area with mild soap and cold water.

Don’t ever soak any part of your mattress; the damage may affect the very features that provide your good nights’ sleep.

Good Mattress Etiquette

You want to treat your mattress like any other good piece of furniture in your home. Don’t let anyone use it as a trampoline. Don’t put a board between it and the foundation. If your mattress reaches the "board" phase, it’s time to get rid of it. Don’t eat in bed; even the tiniest crumbs can work their way down into a mattress.

Even though it is not illegal to remove the tag, its best to leave it attached to the bed in case you have a warranty claim. And lastly, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the care and maintenance of your mattress.
