Mattress Care Guide

Please read this guide carefully on how to take care of your Sealy mattress

Things to do (and what not to do) when setting up your new Sealy, including how to safely carry your new mattress and keep your mattress clean to ensure your Sealy mattress has a long life.

  • Do register your purchase to activate your guarantee/ warranty.
  • Keep your mattress dry and clean. Using a mattress protector is advisable.
  • Always carry your mattress on its side. You should never attempt to carry the mattress by yourself.
  • Do not fold your mattress under any circumstances. It will damage the edge support wire. If neceesary, gently flex the mattress when going through doorways.
  • Don’t allow anyone to jump on your mattress – abuse is not covered by Sealy’s guarantee.
  • Make sure children never use plastic packaging bags as playthings – they have no air vents and could cause suffocation.
  • Keep your mattress dry. You should protect it from water and other fluids. A waterproof sheet or fitted waterproof cover under the mattress protector may be useful for children’s beds.
  • Handles (where fitted) are only for positioning the mattress and not for lifting or carrying.
  • Do not remove the law tag located at the end of your mattress. This contains care and content details vital to your guarantee.
  • Dispose of packaging plastic immediately (these bags are polyethylene and are recyclable).
  • Rotate and/ or flip (if applicable) your mattress every three months to even out the wearing of mattress.
  • You should consider replacing your old foundation when purchasing a new mattress. Your new mattress may seems like sagging but the problem might actually came from insufficient support from the old foundation.
  • When used on a hard unyielding platform or slats, your mattress will not last as long as it would on its matching sprung foundation.
  • To ensure that the slats in your furniture provide safe support ensure that the solid timber slats are spaced so that the gaps between the slats are not wider than the width of the slats themselves. These slats should be fixed to the frame to prevent movement during use. For Queen and King size, the slats must be supported by an adequate centre rail.
  • All slats should be smooth with any sharp edges removed. It is advisable to place a layer of fabric between the slats and the underside of the mattress to protect against scuffing caused by the slats.
