A mattress is a big investment and rightly so as the quality of your sleep has a profound effect on the quality of your life and how well you function. Since we spend about a third of our lives sleeping, it is worth taking a few moments to keep it functioning at its best. The following instruction care steps are made to ensure you get the best out of your DUNLOPILLO mattress.
Ask for a suitable foundation. Do not be misled to believe that it is sufficient to buy a new mattress only after your present mattress shows wear and tear. Mattress failure or “wear out” is often caused by foundation failure. Your mattress foundation should have a: a. Minimum 4 legged bedframe for a Twin or Full sized mattress b. Minimum 5 legged bedframe with center support for a Queen sized Mattress c. Minimum 6 legged bedframe with center support for a King sized mattress d. Be no more than 8cm apart and 9cm wide for timber slated bedframes (Slats oved 14cm wide may cause mildew by not allowing moisture to evaporate sufficiently.)
We highly recommend that you protect your mattress with a high quality absorbent mattress pad. This will keep the fabric of the mattress fresh and clean. Never apply liquids of any kind to the mattress. In high humidity areas, you should use a device to reduce the humidity levels in the bedroom. If it is absolutely necessary to clean your mattress, use a dry clean cloth to wipe off any dirt or soak up any moisture. Another alternative is to vacuum your mattress.
It is recommended to rotate your mattress once a month for the first 3 months, and once every 3 months after that. Turn the foot of the mattress so it becomes the head. Next, flip it over. Rotate it the following period and flip it the period after that. If your mattress is a no flip design or one sided mattress, you won’t be able to use the other side for sleeping so just keep rotating it head to foot and foot to head. The result of these mattress acrobatics is that your mattress will wear evenly, free of the sags that come from constantly sleeping in the same spot. Even doing this every six months helps.
Change your sheets regularly. Simply changing your sheets on regular basis (once a week in most cases), can help keep dirt from collecting on your mattress and becoming a breeding ground.
Misuse of this kind could cause unnecessary damage and void your warranty.
Mattress handles and fabric could be torn out. When turning the mattress or moving it from one location to another, you must support and lift from the bottom of the mattress. Mattress handles should not be used to support the full weight of the mattress. Mattress handles should be used only to position the mattress.
This can damage the fabric, zipper (if any), and even the mattress core.
