Proper Installation. Improper installation can damage your new sleep set. This is why you should make sure your new mattress and foundation are properly installed in your home. If you want to know how to do it properly, have somebody help you with it. This task should be done right the first time or else you will spend more to get it fixed in the future.
Let the air do its job. If you detect a slight “new product” odor, leave the mattress and foundation uncovered and well ventilated for a few hours. Let fresh air do the job for you.
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.
Don’t remove the tag. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not illegal to remove the law tag, but the information on the label will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim.
It’s not a trampoline. Don’t let the kids jump on your sleep set. Their rough-housing could do damage to the interior construction of your bed, as well as to themselves!
Follow instructions. Again, be sure to follow any specific guidelines from your manufacturer for the best method of mattress care.
In with the new. Now that you’ve treated yourself to a new sleep set, arrange to have your old bed removed and disposed of. Don’t give it to the kids, relatives, guests or neighbors. If it wasn’t good enough for you, it isn’t good.
