What to Expect From Your New Mattress

What to Expect From Your New Mattress

1. Body Impressions: Many top-quality mattresses use advanced types of foams and fibers that are designed to be softer and more comfortable while ensuring your body has the support you need for good health and for a good night’s sleep. These materials relieve pressure and are so comfortable that you’ll probably toss and turn less while you sleep. For this reason, in the first few weeks you sleep on a new mattress that offers these extra comfort layers, you may notice some body impressions on the surface of the mattress. These impressions are normal and shouldn’t be considered a sight of something being wrong with your new mattress. Unless your mattress care instructions indicate otherwise, you should rotate your mattress from end-to-end and from top-to-bottom. After a few weeks, the impressions will begin to smooth and over time they will disappear.

2. You may feel a slight discomfort from your new mattress for the first week or two, this is normal and to be expected. Your body has grown accustom to the old mattress and your new one is now supporting your body.

3. It may take up to two weeks for your body to adjust to your new mattress.

4. Remember: The mattress should conform to you, not you to it.

5. Rotate your mattress as often asthe warranty card reads.

6. The layers of upholstery in old mattresses have become compressed and flattened over the years. The upholstery layers in a new mattress have a certain amount of air in them and a break in period is required.This is when new materials begin conforming to the shapes and curves of the body. While this adjustment is taking place, creases, or “comfort wrinkles,” may be noticeable. This is a naturally process and these creases are not defects. To help the new sleep system complete this adjustment to personal needs, it needs to be rotated on a regular basis. It is recommended that the mattress is alternately turned once every two weeks for the first three months, and then twice per year after that. The foundation should also be turned once a year.

7. Another part of the bedding investment is the use of a proper frame. A queen or king sized bed needs to have a frame with center support. It is also strongly recommended that you have center support for full size sets of bedding as well. The difference in size between a queen and a full is only six inches in width and only five inches in length. While not required by the manufacturer, 1800Mattress.com has found that your full size set of bedding will perform better and last longer with center support.

8. When cleaning your mattress it is recommended that you only vacuum it. A quality, washable mattress pad will help keep the sleep set free from stains.
