Making sure your new mattress & foundation are properly installed in your bedroom is the first step in caring for your new bed. Improper installation can damage your new sleep set. If you choose to transport and install it yourself, ask store personnel for advice to help you avoid problems.
Cover it up.
A washable mattress protector will keep your set fresh and free from stains, dust mites and allergens. It protects your investment and will be beneficial in case of a warranty claim.
Don’t let the kids jump on your bed. They could damage the interior construction of your bed or they could get hurt.
Be sure to use a sturdy, high-quality foundation.
Make sure your foundation has a strong centre support that will prevent the mattress from bowing or breaking.
The best way to care for your mattress is simply to vacuum it.
Keeping Your Mattress Squeaky Clean – Worried about stains on your mattress? Whatever you do, don’t apply harsh chemicals like dry cleaning products or spot removers. These products can harm the fabric or underlying materials in your mattress and do more damage than good. If your mattress is damp in any spot, sprinkle baking soda on it to absorb the moisture, then vacuum.
If there is a stain you want to work on, lightly apply mild soap and cold water, blotting as you go. Avoid soaking your mattress or foundation with any liquid. Remember that a waterproof mattress protector is the best way to avoid stains.
