At Beds R Us we believe that your bed should be your best friend.

After all, it’s your personal support system, ensuring you get enough shut-eye so that you can take on the world – each and every time your alarm clock sounds. Naturally, you should care for your bed in turn.

Rotate your mattress

The general rule of thumb is that you should rotate it every three months. With a new product, you should do this every two weeks. This is because it takes time for any new bed to settle in.

As time progresses, you will notice body impressions. These are ever-so-slight troughs in the surface of your mattress that are imprinted by your body weight. Don’t worry, these are normal and by following your new mattress rotation schedule you will be sure to keep your bed in tip-top shape.

Keep your mattress clean

Taking care of your bed overall is just as important as taking care of your mattress itself. Here are a few tips to help you keep your mattress cleaner!

When things get messy

Relaxing in bed curled up with a book or watching movies is one of life’s simple joys. Until you accidentally spill some coffee or drop a few crumbs on the mattress.

Don’t stress, cleaning your mattress is easy. It’s best to attend to the spill or stain while it’s still fresh. Gently scrape away solid residue and soak up any liquid with a clean, damp cloth or sponge.

Using a mattress protector is usually a condition of your mattress warranty and always a great idea for preserving the life of your mattress.

General maintanence

A vacuum cleaner comes in handy in reducing the amount of dust mites and allergens. Vacuum your bed regularly using low suction. We recommend using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum for any hard-to-reach areas.

Refrain from saturating your mattress with water or any other cleaning agents, especially dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent. Avoid using a coarse brush to scrub.

Sheets and pillowcases

should be washed weekly in Summer to guard against the growth of bacteria from dead skin cells, dirt, fungus and other nasties.

Blankets, quilts and comforters

should be washed monthly (you can push this up to six weeks if you absolutely have to)

it’s advisable to use a mattress protector. This will provide an extra barrier in keeping your mattress clean.

Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial treatment controls unwanted microbes, bacteria, mould, mildew and fungi. This is now a common material found in our mattresses and it assists in keeping the mattress fresh, clean, and odour free.

Look For a Mattress With Ultra-fresh

Invest in a strong bed base

Your mattress and bed frame should work in tandem. This is why we recommend replacing your base when you purchase a new mattress.

The benefits of a new base includes:

  • may help you get a more comfortable sleep
  • keeps your mattress in good shape for far longer
  • minimises any structural imbalance

It’s highly recommended that you replace your base when you purchase.

Move with care

It’s very important to care for your mattress when you move it. There are some precautions you can take to prevent damaging your new mattress, your bedroom and injuring yourself! A few ways we’d suggest in moving a mattress (but not limited) is to get a friend or family member to help you. Doing things with friends is always better and avoid folding or bending your mattress (this may affect coilsprings).
