Tips for Maintaining your New Mattress

  • Rotate your new Sherwood Bedding mattress from end-to-end after 2 weeks and then every 2-3 months thereafter.
  • King and Queen mattress must be supported by a strong (preferably steel) frame having a rigid center bar with a supporting leg.
  • Use a quilted or waterproof / breathable mattress pad to avoid stains and protect the mattress finish.
  • When moving, transport your mattress on its side. (Save the plastic bag it came in to re-use)
  • Do not remove the tag or label containing the model name.
  • Do not bend, stand or jump on your mattress.
  • Do not use cleaning fluids on your mattress.
  • Please do not smoke in bed or expose the mattress to open flame or fire.
  • Do not lift your mattress by its handles (if applicable). Handles should only be used for positioning the mattress on the frame.
