Mattress Owner's Manual
What to Expect After You've Made Your Purchase

Congratulations on your new mattress! You've made an investment that should provide you with restful sleep for many nights to come. You'll likely have this mattress for the next 8 to 10 years. Your experience with it will evolve and change over time as your body adjusts to the new mattress and as the mattress breaks in and begins to soften with wear. Knowing what to expect, what not to expect, and what to do if something goes wrong will help you maintain your satisfaction with your mattress for as long as you have it.

The first thing to know is that your body will take a little time to get used to your new mattress. Not feeling comfortable right away is not a reason for panic. Sleeping on a new surface is a big change for your body, one it needs a little time to adjust to. In most cases, concerns about brand new mattresses resolve by themselves within about a month. We will walk you through the most common concerns and experiences people have in the first 30 days of owning their mattress.

Taking proper care of your mattress is a good way to increase its longevity. This guide offers the basics for keeping your mattress clean and in good condition throughout its lifespan. We also talk about what you can do about problems like sagging or body impressions. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your mattress, we've also included a guide to understanding your warranty and making a claim. 

Finally, we'll show you how to notice the signs that your beloved mattress is wearing out and in need of replacing—and a few suggestions for sleeping more comfortably on a mattress that's nearing the end of its lifespan.
