11. Mattress Quality After Delivery
11.1.All mattresses usually take up to 6 - 8 weeks approximately to settle to their specified tension, as they take time to contour to each sleeper’s body.
11.2.The one-sided mattresses need to be rotated (so the head end becomes the foot end and vise versa) every week during the first 6 weeks, thereafter every 6 weeks.
11.3.The zonal support two-sided mattresses need to be flipped over (so the sleeping surface is changed) every week during the first 6 weeks, thereafter every 6 weeks. The other two-sided mattresses need to be flipped and rotated every week during the first 6 weeks, thereafter every 6 weeks.
11.4.All mattress tensions are based on an individual weighing approximately 12 stones (75 kg). On our product pages you will find a handy tool where you can select your weight and you will see the feeling of firmness you would have if you sleep on the respective mattress (a mattress normally feels softer for heavier people and firmer for lighter people). Please note that each person’s perception of mattress firmness is different so our advertised firmness rating must be taken only as guidance.
11.5.The natural fillings and the foam in some of the mattresses may give out an odour for the initial 6 weeks. When your mattress is delivered, you should let it air in a well-ventilated room until the smell subsides.
11.6.When opening a vacuum packed mattress, please allow 4 hours for its initial expansion. The mattress is okay to use after this period however it will continue to expand (to a lesser degree) over the following 72 hours. Any odours from the packaging will be eliminated in the process.
11.7.Please be aware that there may be a light smell emitting from our products (mattresses, beds, wardrobes, etc) once you have opened the boxes and begun to assemble the product. This smell will subside within 6-8 weeks. We recommended keeping windows open and fresh air circulating wherever possible.
11.8.Disposal items must be dismantled, wrapped and packaged for collection, or drivers will refuse receipt.
