Body Comfort Impression


Top-quality mattress use extra-plush foams to create comfort layers designed to cradle your body and relieve pressure. After the first few weeks you sleep on your new mattress with these extra comfort layers, you will likely notice some body signatures. These impressions are normal. Any impression of less than 3cm of the original mattress height is normal, they indicate that the comfort layers are conforming to your body, which is what they are designed to do, and shouldn't be considered a sign of defect or sagging




New Mattress Experience


A brand new mattress will often be firmer than what you’ve tried in the showroom. This firmness is caused by the brand new foam layers. As you continue to sleep on the mattress, the pressure from your body will relax the foam and mold it more and more into your sleeping form. Other than that, the foundation (divan, bed frame) used will also affect your sleeping experience. Age, quality of support, materials, and condition of the foundation of your mattress also plays a crucial role in this case. Therefore, firmness of new mattress or ‘feels different’ from in-store experience shouldn’t be considered as manufacturing defect




Smell / Odour


The smell arising from your new mattress or pillow upon unboxing is absolutely normal. Please allow a minimum of 2 months for your new mattress to breathe in a well ventilated room, the smell will then fade away naturally.




Mattress Care


1. Support your mattress. Ask for a suitable foundation. Please do not buy a new mattress only after your present mattress shows wear and tear. Mattress failure or “wear out” is often caused by foundation failure.
2. Your mattress foundation should have a:

  • Minimum 4-legged bed frame for a Twin or Full-sized mattress
  • Minimum 5-legged bed frame with center support for a Queen-sized mattress
  • Minimum 6-legged bed frame with center support for a King-sized mattress
3. Ensure the room is well ventilated and dry. Protecting your mattress with a high-quality absorbent mattress pad is highly recommended. This will keep the fabric of the mattress fresh and clean. DO NOT use cleaning liquids as the chemicals may damage some of the materials. In high humidity areas, kindly use a dehumidifier. If it is necessary to clean your mattress, please use a vacuum machine or dry clean cloth to wipe off the dirt or soak up the moisture. 4. Rotate your mattress every 1 to 6 months. It is recommended to rotate your mattress once a month for the first 3 months, then once every 3 months. This will result your mattress to wear evenly, and reduce sagging from constantly sleeping in the same spot.
5. Keep your mattress clean. Never use your mattress uncovered. Change your bedsheets once a week to prevent dirt from collecting on your mattress thus becoming a breeding ground for allergens.
6. Never jump, stand, bend, or place your mattress on the floor. Misuse of this kind could cause unnecessary damage and void your Guarantee.
7. Moving & storing. Move by lifting the mattress up from the ground. Avoid knocking into other objects or dragging, as this can damage the fabric, zipper (if any), and even the mattress core. Store mattress in dry and well-ventilated areas. To avoid damage from the sun and humidity, do not store outdoors.




What Can Void Your Guarantee?


1. Blood, urine, other stains or damages will void this Guarantee. A quality mattress protector with good absorption should be used to protect your mattress.
2. Unhygienic mattress. Mattress with unusual odour emitted, present of molding or mildew such as fleas, ticks, bedbugs or cockroach egg capsules found by inspection will void the warranty.
3. Children or adults repeatedly jumping on the mattress will ultimately cause the mattress foundation to fail.
4. Bending the mattress or leaving it standing on its side for long periods will cause permanent damage. If the mattress is bent while shifting from place to place; standing for a long period during delivery, when moving it, or in storage, the Guarantee is void.
5. Correct mattress support is an important element in maintaining a longer life span for your mattress. Improper foundation that is too soft, uneven, lack of support, worn out, constructed wrongly, or restricts air circulation may damage your mattress and void the Guarantee.
6. Mattresses follow the contour of whatever they rest on. Foundations dipping or sagging allow the mattress to sag too, causing the top cover to wrinkle. Sleepers may experience roll-together through inadequate support. Some slat/mesh type foundations may require a center rail and a leg to the floor to prevent dipping or sagging, particularly in double, queen, and king-sized mattresses.
