It is normal to experience an adjustment period after switching to a new mattress, especially if you had been sleeping on your last mattress for a long time. In order to protect the investment you have made and the performance of your mattress, please consider these valuable tips from your friends at Perrysburg Mattress.
A good quality, washable mattress pad is a must to keep your set fresh and free from stains. It also protects the manufacturers warranty.
Don’t forget your mattress’s matching foundation. Today’s mattresses use a matching foundation built to provide proper support and durability. Putting a new mattress on an old box spring has two drawbacks:
• The “feel” you bought in the store won’t be there when you get it home.
• Your new mattress will probably sag or wear sooner. Therefore, your bed won’t perform as well, and your warranty may be invalid.
Rotating a King Size Mattress
- First two weeks: Keep mattress as delivered.
- Week 3: Rotate the mattress 90 degrees clockwise.
- Week 4: Rotate the mattress another 90 degrees clockwise. (the original head of the mattress is now at the foot of the bed) Maintain for two weeks.
- Week 6: Rotate the mattress 90 degrees clockwise.
- Week 7: Rotate the mattress another 90 degrees clockwise. (you should now be back to the original orientation of the mattress) Maintain for two weeks.
- Week 9: Rotate the mattress 90 degree clockwise.
- Week 10: Rotate the mattress another 90 degrees clockwise. Maintain for two weeks.
- Week 12: Rotate the mattress 90 degrees clockwise.
- Week 13: Rotate the mattress another 90 degrees clockwise.
To prolong the life of your king mattress it should now be rotated, on average, every 3 months. But use your best judgment and if you feel a bit of a sag or notice a small “high spot” developing near the center of the mattress, it might be best to rotate your mattress more often and occasionally, rotate it 90 degrees for a week.
