A: In today's plusher mattresses, state-of-the-art foams and fibers conform to the shape of your body to relieve pressure points and provide a more restful night's sleep. If you sleep in the same spot night after night, the fibers and foams will naturally conform to the shape of your body. You can reduce this by occasionally rotating your mattress from end-to-end or top-to-bottom.
A: Several factors can cause mattress sagging, including an improper bed frame, improper center support, a damaged or bent frame or a damaged/broken box spring. Using a proper bed frame with proper center support and taking proper care of your box spring will greatly reduce the chances of mattress sagging. Please refer to the manufacturer's warranty material for further information.
A: A single-sided mattress does not ever have to be flipped. Rotating your mattress will redistribute the comfort layers, and this will maximize wear.
A: In today's modern mattresses, the support comes from the innerspring. The comfort layers determine the surface "feel." That means you can choose the mattress that feels the best to you, and you will receive the support you need.
A: Keep in mind, you spend one-third of your life in bed, so you should buy the best bed you can afford. At what amounts to pennies per night, it's an important investment in your health and well-being.
A: Common standard sizes are twin, twin extra -long, full (double), full extra-long, queen, king, and California king. Other standard sizes are 30 x 75, 33 x 75, or 48 x 75 (three-quarter).
A: Most major sheet manufacturers sell "deep-pocket" sheets that will fit today's plusher mattresses.
A: When possible, we recommended that you allow our professional delivery staff to move your new mattress into the bedroom. Do not under any circumstance bend a mattress or box spring in order to fit it through a narrow space. King-size mattresses are sold with "split" box springs, making it easier to move the box springs through a narrow space. We also offer split box springs for queen mattresses to help move box springs through narrow spaces.
A: A mattress is designed to perform for the length of its warranty. However, you should compare your current mattress and foundation to newer models every few years, as bodies and sleep habits change. Other circumstances may lead to a need for a new mattress, such as a child outgrowing his or her current sleep set or your desire to upgrade your mattress.
A: A mattress should give full support even on the edge. You should never roll off a bed because the edge is weak.
A: Innerspring mattresses - The most widely purchased type of mattress. These mattresses feature tempered steel coils in a variety of configurations. Layers of upholstery provide insulation and cushioning between your body and the spring unit.
Foam core mattresses - Instead of coils, these mattresses use either latex or visco-elastic memory foam cores as the support system.
A: Yes, sleep position matters in terms of which pressure points are affected during sleep, as well as how the spine is supported. Because each individual sleeper is different, the only way to determine which mattress and comfort level works best for your sleep position is to test out the different mattresses in the store. It helps to talk to the salesperson about what options are available so they can make recommendations based on your personal needs.
A: Comfort preference is very personal. When you shop for a mattress, you should lie down on firm, plush and pillow top models to determine what feels best for you.
A: Contrary to popular belief, it's not illegal to remove this tag, but the information on the label will serve as a means of identification should you have a warranty claim.
A: Mattresses are made from a combination of many different materials that may include steel, various types of fabric, manmade and natural foams, and fibers. Many of the above materials can have a "new" smell or odor when first exposed to the air. New mattresses are sealed and packaged in strong plastic bags immediately after being manufactured and, just like new cars have a new smell. After a few days this smell will dissipate.
