General Care

  • Please do not place wash boards/engine covers/etc on the mattress as the edges may damage the fabric.
  • Pocket Sprung mattresses can not be bent or folded, this will cause irreapairable damage to the metal frame.
  • We recommend using a Mattress Protector, to help prevent staining on the mattress.
  • DRY-Mat® is also highly recommended to protect the base and sides of your mattress from damp and condensation.
