1. What’s inside a mattress?
A typical mattress is composed of multi layers: an upholstery layer (padding) and a inner comfort block layer. The upholstery layer is largely responsible for the firmness of the mattress, while the inner block layers offers support and some flexibility. Thicker mattresses typically have thicker upholstery layers that are made from a variety of materials such as natural fibers, different types of foam (including memory foam and latex foam), and different man-made materials. Some mattresses even have padding that is made from silk, cashmere, or wool.

3. How often should I replace my mattress?
While it is recommended that you replace your mattress at least once every 5 – 7 years, there is no cut-and-dry number for every mattress and every individual. The quality of your mattress is one of the many factors that determine how long it will last. Higher-quality mattresses will generally provide a comfortable night’s sleep longer than low-quality mattresses. Aim for the recommended 5 – 7 year replacement period, but if your mattress begins to feel uncomfortable sooner than that you should have it replaced in order to ensure a high quality of sleep.
4. When should I turn or rotate a mattress and how many times should it be done?
For best results, it is recommended that you rotate a brand new mattress once every week until it is sufficiently broken in. After that point, you should aim to rotate your mattress once every months, or as specified in the manufacturer’s warranty that comes along with your mattress.
5. How long will a mattress last?
Most mattresses can last for many years, but the older a mattress gets, the less comfortable it becomes. The useful life of a mattress depends in large part on the quality of the materials used in its upholstery and comfort layers. Mattresses that are made from quality memory foam and latex foam typically last longer than mattresses that are made from cheaper materials. Even the highest-quality mattresses should typically be replaced every 5 – 7 years for maximum comfort and quality of sleep.
6. How do I clean a mattress?
A mattress should be regularly cleaned in order to remove dirt and dead skin cells that slough off during your sleep. In order to protect your mattress, don’t hose it down or drench it in water. Instead, vacuum it off regularly with an upholstery attachment, and then use upholstery shampoo to remove any oils or dirt from the surface of the mattress. Be sure to test your shampoo on a small area of the mattress to ensure that it doesn’t cause any damage before shampooing the entire thing. Allow the mattress to thoroughly dry before using it.
7. What are the differences between foam and traditional innerspring mattresses?
Innerspring mattresses are typically less expensive than foam mattresses and are a good choice for individuals or families who are on a tight budget. A foam mattress is typically more comfortable and is generally a better choice for individuals who suffer from back, neck, or hip pain. Innerspring mattresses are designed to provide support, and each spring pushes upwards with the same amount of force. A foam mattress helps to distribute a person’s body weight evenly across the surface of the mattress, helping to reduce pressure points and deliver a more comfortable night’s sleep.
8. How to decide what mattress firmness is right for me?
Some individuals prefer a firm mattress that has very little padding, while others can’t sleep unless they feel like they are lying down on a cloud. In order to decide what mattress firmness is right for you, lie down on a mattress for at least 10 – 15 minutes. If you can clearly feel pressure on certain parts of your body at the end of that time, then the mattress is too firm for you. If you feel like parts of your body sink too far into the mattress, then it is probably too soft for you. The ideal mattress should be firm enough to support your weight without causing excess pressure on any part of your body.
9. How to recycle your old mattress?
When your mattress has reached the end of its life, you are left with the question of how to dispose of it properly. Recycling your old mattress is an environmentally-friendly way to dispose of it, and it is a fairly simple process due to the fact that mattress recyclers are becoming more common.

Memory foam mattresses do not need a box spring, but traditional innerspring mattresses do.

We advise against turning the mattress over when its structure varies from one side to another since this could negatively affect mattress comfort.

In order to find the perfect bed for your needs, there are several questions you will need to consider. First, what size bed do you need? If the bed is for a child or a dormitory room, a twin size might be fine. If the bed is normally used by two people, the smallest size to consider is a full size. Queen size and king size beds provide considerably more room and comfort for the sleepers; however, you must also consider the size of the room.
Will you need a mattress and box spring set, or just a mattress only to be used on a platform bed? The next consideration is how you want the bed to feel as far as comfort is concerned.
Do you want the bed to be firm, with very little cushioning, or do you want it to be very plush, like sleeping on several comforters?
Once you can answer these questions and have some idea of how much you want to invest in your mattress, you are ready to Call, Click, or Visit a dealer to find the perfect bed for you!
25. How long do mattresses last and how often should they be replaced?
Traditionally, mattresses should be replaced every 7 to 10 years. The life of a mattress can be impacted by many factors, including the height and weight of the sleeper(s) and whether or not it is supported by a proper frame and foundation, and even the climate that you live in. If the mattress is abused by standing or jumping on it, or if a double-sided mattress is not turned as recommended by the manufacturer, you may need to replace the mattress sooner. Ultimately, if you wake up feeling stiff and sore, and you can’t identify any other causes; you might want to think about replacing your mattress. Your lifestyle and your body may undergo rapid changes, and that may mean that your mattress should change, too. As a rule, if your mattress sags or is worn and lumpy, you should think about replacing it.
And you can ask yourself this question: Would a new mattress help me sleep better?
26. How sleep is affected by a mattress?
Lifestyle factors – age, physical activity, smoking, and illness – are all important. However, your mattress is the most important factor in determining the quality of your sleep. Your mattress should support you and be comfortable enough to allow you to sleep in one position all night, without the tossing and turning that is caused by pressure points. Restless sleep or waking up with aches in your arms, legs and back is a sure sign that your mattress is not helping you get the rest you need.
27. Does a couple need a particular mattress size?
As a rule, a king or a queen-size mattress provides the most room and the best comfort.
You might want to consider a mattress that minimizes sleep disturbances when either of you move during the night. Our mattresses are constructed to minimize the impact of partners moving.
You should both evaluate a potential mattress purchase. A spacious mattress will help you sleep better and you’ll both be more rested in the morning.
28. Do children need a particular mattress?
For babies, a crib with a firm, tight-fitting mattress is crucial to the infant’s health and safety. Make sure the crib has adequate support for the mattress, so that the bedding can’t be easily dislodged. This is a very important consideration, since babies spend almost three-quarters of their time asleep and toddlers spend half their time sleeping.
As your children grow older, they will be ready to graduate to a twin bed. The rules of comfort and support apply here. Children need 8-10 hours of sleep per night. A mattress that allows them to sleep comfortably without tossing and turning will give them the restful sleep they need to grow up healthy.
It’s better to buy a new mattress for a child, rather than passing him or her your old mattress when you buy a new one. If a mattress is no longer comfortable for you, chances are it will not be comfortable for your child.
29. How often should do I need to rotate my mattress?
If you watch TV on bed then you need to rotate mattress very frequently. And if you have a two-sided mattress, rotating it minimizes the impressions your body leaves and makes your mattress more resilient and resistant to wear and tear, because you are using all the sleeping surfaces. Two-sided mattresses should be “flipped” once every two weeks for the first three months and once every two months thereafter. The first time, turn it over so the top surface is now resting on the foundation. The next time, just spin the mattress from head to toe, leaving the same surface in contact with the foundation. Alternate these two procedures every two months and you can expect a long life from your mattress.
For a one sided mattress you should turn it from Head to Toe side every 2 weeks for the first 3 months then every three month to equalize the body impressions.

32. I have a back pain? Which mattress should I use?
There are many reasons for back pain. Some of the common reasons are poor posture, tension, pulled muscles or a slip disc. A proper mattress will go a long way in reducing your level of discomfort.
Latex/Memory/Coir Foam Mattresses on their own do not offer the adequate Firm support from beneath.
Inner Coil Spring Mattresses resist weight sink in the mattress by providing an interactive upward orthopedically correct support aligned to your body.
Therefore the best mattress to provide a luxurious comfort to help you sleep faster & provide the right orthopedic support is a good quality Medium Firm mattress .
Also Firmness is subjective and personalized comfort preferences can be adjusted later on – to a more Firm feel by using a ‘Firm Pad’ or a softer plusher feel by using a ‘Mattress Topper’ or ‘Mattress fibre Pads’.
33. What is the difference between different types of foam: PU Foam, Latex foam, Memory foam and Memory Gel foam?
PU Foam is a petroleum based product. Natural latex is created from liquid tapped from rubber trees. Even though it does not resist weight like metal coils, it does spring back to provide a resilient, springy, comfortable surface, where as Memory Foam is a petroleum based product & can take 10-60 seconds to recover. All only memory foam mattresses users often complain of a trapped sinking feel & a higher sweat factor.
Memory Gel Foams are new additions but tend to break down faster on a mattress surface because of low load bearing & resilience quality.

The 3D band is one of the latest innovations in the field of mattresses. The three dimensional structure of the fabric ensures that the mattress has excellent internal breathability. This is why it is almost always placed at the centre of the mattress because it is the part of the mattress which is most difficult to ventilate. This solution improves the ventilation of the mattress.
38. Why does your mattress cost more than our domestic products?
In recent years, the mattress manufacturing industry has witnessed a boom with new firms entering the market. Many of these firms offer products at knockdown prices because they decide to use inferior quality materials so that their mattresses are neither anatomic nor ergonomic and have a poor performance. Our advice is to consider carefully before making this purchase because we all spend a third of our lives asleep and the quality of our rest influences our performance for the whole day. If rest is not regenerating and refreshing, this may lead in the long term to a drop in attention, headaches, reduced memory capacity and a lowered immune defense system. Our organisms are regenerated when we rest.
