Why You Should Care for Your New Mattress

Maintaining your new mattress regularly will give you years of comfort and good sleeping habits.  Following are mattress care tips to keep it in great condition.  These pointers will help keep your cheap mattress long lasting and comfortable on your bed. 

Allow Your Mattress In A Box To Inflate

When you purchase a mattress in a box from Inside Outside Furnishing & Lifestyle, follow the care instructions.  Carefully open the plastic covering and allow your mattress to fully inflate over 24-48 hours.  Give your mattress in a box a good start to life by not sleeping on it too soon. 

Read The Warranty

Inside Outside Furnishing & Lifestyle offers a 12 month warranty on our products when used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Note any damage you cause to your mattress is not covered.

Do Not Sit On The Edge

Try not to sit on the edge of the bed. If you do, change the location of where you sit each time to prevent indentations.  Mattresses are not meant for sitting on, use a chair or stool in your bedroom.  One of our storage ottomans is perfect to sit on and can double up as a blanket box.

Use A Waterproof Mattress Protector

Use a waterproof mattress protector to prevent spills from soaking into your mattress.  Moisture will cause the foam to break down internally and make them prone to impressions.  The mattress protector should also be breathable.  Even when you use a mattress topper, it still pays to protect your mattress.

Clean Your Mattress Regularly

We recommend a quick vacuum using a hand vacuum cleaner attachment.  If spot cleaning is required, use warm water with mild detergent.  Let the surface dry completely before making your bed.

Rotate Your Mattress

This evens out normal wear.  A pillow top mattress and euro top mattress with a plush top can be rotated regularly to allow even distribution of weight.

Move Your Mattress with Care

The handles located on the side are there to help shuffle your mattress into position on your bed frame.  They are not to be used when moving house as handles to carry with.  Ensure that your mattress is not bent or folded when moving as this can damage and stretch it internally.  Of course this is not such a problem with a single bed size, but a queen mattress and king mattress need to be handled evenly and without bends.

Use a Quality Bed Frame

Your mattress requires suitable support on the bed frame.  Using an old bed frame if it is damaged or sagging is not recommended for a new mattress.  Inside Outside Furnishing & Lifestyle sell cheap bed frames that offer suitable support for any mattress we sell.  We can help you choose the best bed frame and best mattress to meet your needs. We also sell bedroom furniture in Melbourne that can be delivered Australia wide.
