Just like all our furniture, our beds are designed to withstand general wear and tear. However, we recommend that you follow this advice to keep your bed in top condition for as long as possible to ensure maximum sleep quality throughout the natural life of your bed.
Never fold or bend the mattress, as this will distort the spring unit. Modern spring interior mattresses cannot be rolled for storage. Sitting on the edge of your mattress for long periods can affect its shape. This will prolong the life-span of your mattress.
Frequent turning and plumping reduces natural dips and ‘nesting’ in spring interior mattresses.
The drawers within a drawer divan are usually designed to hold lightweight items, such as bedlinen and should not be overloaded.
- Mini drawers - 7kg
- Standard drawers - 15kg
Mattresses and Divans getting used to your bed
Chances are that the springs and upholstery in your old bed were not what they used to be, so your new bed may seem a little strange at first. Please allow time for your body to adjust to your new bed and for the fillings to settle.
Settlement is normal
Due to modern day fillings being more sumptuous than their predecessors, settlement may be more pronounced in the areas under the most body weight. This is quite normal and providing that the mattress is properly supported, can be minimised by regular turning and rotating.
Let your mattress breathe
After its removal from the packaging, please leave your bed uncovered for a few hours to allow any odours and condensation to escape. Please ensure that the polythene bag is well out of reach of small children.
Protect your mattress
We recommend that you use a mattress cover which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners. Using detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress is likely to damage the fabric and stitching.
Helping to protect your mattress:
- Don't sit on the edge of a mattress.
- Don't allow your mattress to get wet.
- Don't use dry-cleaning fluid of any type to clean your mattress.
- Don't place a board between your mattress and your box spring.
- Don't let children jump on the bed.
