Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between comfort and support?
    Support comes from the base or inner core of the mattress. It may be firmer or more yielding depending on the construction. Comfort is more a factor of the layers above the core – foam, padding, memory foam, specialty foams, and/or latex – each creating a different comfort level and the most subjective and personal element of the buying decision.
  • Why does my mattress feel different than I expected it to?
    This is a common observation – don’t worry. It could take up to two weeks of continued usage for the new sleep surface to conform to your body. Also, it takes that much time for your body to respond and get comfortable to the support provided by the new sleep set.
  • Must I replace the box spring or foundation when purchasing a new mattress?
    Yes! A good foundation (otherwise known as a “box-spring”) is as important as a good mattress! Not all manufacturers use the same type of foundations. It is critical for a new mattress to get the proper support from the foundation. Some manufacturers use a foundation that moves up and down as weight is applied to it (yielding). A yielding foundation acts much like a large shock absorber, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear. These types of foundations increase the life of the mattress. Sealy, Stearns & Foster, use these types of foundations. A mattress designed for a yielding foundation that is put on a non yielding foundation will not last as long. Some manufacturers use a foundation that has a solid surface and does not move up and down as weight is applied to it (non-yielding). A non-yielding foundation adds stability to the sleep set which will lessen the movement transferred between partners which will provide more undisturbed sleep. Putting a new mattress on an old foundation may also void your warranty.
  • How many years should my mattress last?
    The Better Sleep Council recommends purchasing the highest-quality sleep set one can afford and replacing your mattress about every 7 years. The life of a mattress varies depending on a number of factors including how you take care of it, whether you sleep over the entire surface to prevent body impressions, and how often you rotate it. To help prolong the life of your mattress, always use a mattress protector and rotate it regularly to reduce body impressions.

  • How and why do I rotate my bedding? How do I avoid body impressions? How do I maintain consistent comfort and feel throughout the life of my bedding?
    First, it’s important to note that body impressions on a mattress are normal, and not an indication that your mattress is defective. We recommend that you rotate your mattress on a regular basis to refresh its comfort. Mattresses contain many layers of upholstery padding to increase their comfort life and support performance. Body indentations are a normal occurrence in new mattresses, and indicate that the upholstery layers are conforming to a person’s individual body contours. To help minimize body impressions, mattresses should be turned occasionally throughout their life.
  • How do I clean my mattress?
    Keeping your bedding clean is simple with the use of a protective mattress pad. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If you must clean a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly. Don’t ever soak a mattress or foundation, and don’t use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress; these chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.
  • What is the best mattress, or mattress brand?"
    Each of the major brands we carry offers unique features and benefits that may appeal more to you, while consistently providing a great quality product. Your comfort is a personal choice. A trained salesperson will help to guide you based on your preferences, enabling you to make an informed buying decision.
  • How much should I spend on a new mattress?
    Mattress prices range greatly, from about $300 to over $5,000 for a queen set. A good night’s sleep is one of the best investments you can make, so buy the highest-quality mattress you can afford. Most of us spend as much as one-third of our time in bed. If you divide the cost of the new sleep set over a seven year period, you will realize you are making an investment in your overall wellness that costs you just pennies per night. Who isn’t willing to pay just pennies a night for a great night’s sleep?!
  • What about Warranty coverage?
    We carry the major national mattress brands, and they provide warranty coverage anywhere in the United States. If you ever have a warranty issue, you will be able to receive assistance no matter where you live. Detailed warranty information is listed on each mattress.
