Caring for Beds
- 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.
- Lively children may use your new bed as a trampoline. This is not recommended if you want to prolong the lifespan of your bed.
- Use mattress handles, if provided, and do not overload divan bed drawers.
- Check that the legs and castors are tightened fully from time to time.
Regular, Easy Care Maintenance
- Turn down the bed clothes every morning to allow the bed to cool down and breathe.
- Turn your mattress over twice a month for the first six months, and once a month thereafter. This will help to equalise wear and plump up the fillings.
- Please note that some mattresses i.e. latex may not require turning.
- Take care when turning mattresses; do it with someone else especially when they are particularly heavy. 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.
- Where fitted, headboard bolts and legs may need to be tightened at regular intervals in order to prevent causing damage.
Stop Spills Becoming Stains
- Ensure that a spillage is simply mopped up quickly with a clean, dry cloth.
- Always use a good quality mattress protector that can be cleaned.
- Never wet clean your mattress.
- Regularly clean your bed with a soft brush or lightly vacuum using an upholstery attachment.
- If your mattress does become wetted, stand it on its side to minimise the penetration of moisture and allow it to air away from direct heat.
- Always follow your manufacturer's cleaning and care label instructions.
